How to clean your door

13th February 2020

Cleaning an entrance door is easy.

You do NOT need to use expensive cleaning products.

Keep your new door looking its best by following these 5 simple steps – and apply a bit of elbow grease!

Step 1: Fill a bucket with warm, soapy water and use a clean soft cloth to remove wash away any dirt, dust or grime which has built up.

Step 2: Once the door has been washed, use the same water to clean the frame. Open the door to access and remove any dirt which has become trapped.

Step 3: Rinse the cloth and fill the bucket with fresh warm, soapy water. Wash any glazed panels, before drying with a clean, dry cloth to minimise the risk of any streaks.

Step 4: Fill one more bucket with fresh warm, soapy water and use a soft cloth to clean any door furniture – handles, knob, knocker, letterplate etc.

Step 5: Remove any remaining water from the door with a dry cloth – and stand back to admire your handywork!

Important things to avoid when cleaning a door

To prevent any potential to damage the door’s skin, we recommend you avoid:

  • Applying too much pressure when cleaning
  • Abrasive cleaners - Cif and Jif-type creams
  • Steam or high-pressure cleaners
  • Solvents or harsh chemicals
  • Bleach-type products
  • Methylated spirits
