Here are a few tips and tricks on how to maximise the life of your security doors through regular maintenance.

Inspect the Door for Damage

Security doors are meant to keep your family and belongings safe, so regularly inspecting the door for damage can make sure your security door is up for the task.  Things get damaged over time after continual use, and a security door is no different.  If your door is getting heavy use you should regularly inspect the door for wear and tear.

Be sure to check the door frame, hinges and locks for signs of deterioration – a security door isn’t much use if it’s damaged.

Get in the Habit of Cleaning Regularly

Regularly cleaning your security doors not only makes the door more visually appealing, but it can prevent any deterioration that may be caused the outdoor elements.  Washing the door with water regularly is a great way to elongate the life of your doors.  Like any part of your home, keeping a regular cleaning schedule will help you get the most out of your security door.

Avoid cleaning your security door with harsh chemicals.  If you clean the door with abrasive cleaners often, the door can eventually be worn down by the chemicals, leaving you susceptible to a break in.  We recommend using water with a small amount of soap to avoid damaging the door over time.

Repair and Replace

Security doors aren’t meant to last forever.  It’s important to realise that components on the door are eventually going to need repaired or replaced.  If you see that your door lock, hinge or handle is worn down, replace it to bring your door back to full functionality.  

With proper care and maintenance, you won’t have to replace or repair the parts of your security door that often, but it’s okay if you do have to go through a repair process.  It’s much better to invest in restoring the door to full functionality than putting it off.  Regular maintenance is the best way to elongate the life of your door!
