People use many different materials for the doors around their homes. For some rooms, you may have doors that are made of glass. These doors are very delicate, and they will require some care in order to keep them looking great. Let’s take some time to show you some tips that can help you maintain your glass doors.
Clean the Glass on Your Doors
The first part of your maintenance routine should be to clean the glass on your doors. This should be done roughly once per week in order to maintain their beauty and elegance. To clean your glass doors, you should use a soft rag and a squeegee. You’ll want to apply glass cleaner to your door. This should help you remove any pesky cobwebs or dirt that may have accumulated since your last cleaning.
Once the glass cleaner has been applied, take your rag and dry your door off. Finally, take your squeegee and get rid of any leftover glass cleaner or water on your door.
Clean Your Door’s Frame
Not only do you need to clean the door itself, but you also need to keep the frame clean as well. A dirty frame looks unappealing to the eye, and it can also lead to weather-related damage as time goes on.
You’ll want to break out a soft cloth with some warm soap water if you’re trying to clean the frame of your glass door. For those tight crevices you can’t reach with a cloth, you can take a Q-tip or a fingernail and remove whatever dirt is hiding in there. Don’t use any harsh cleaning chemicals because these can harm your frame.
Replace Any Parts That are Worn Out
As time goes on, the rollers and weatherstripping of your glass doors will get worn down. If these parts of your door get too damaged, you’ll want to get them replaced. We recommend getting professional help with any replacements you may need, as professionals are the most familiar with all of the necessary steps to ensure a successful installation of whatever features your door needs.
