What you need to know about your Wrought Iron Door Maintenance!

The maintenance intervals for a wrought iron door vary depending on the location and weather conditions. Generally, it is recommended to inspect the door and its hardware monthly and clean it with a mild detergent every 6–12 months. The door should also be painted or coated with a rust-resistant finish every 2–5 years to prevent rust or corrosion. Regular lubrication of hinges and locks is also recommended. If the door shows signs of damage or wear, immediate repairs or replacements should be done to prevent further damage.

Ways to care for Your Wrought Iron Door

To maintain a wrought iron door, regular cleaning is necessary to remove dirt, grime, and other residues. Use a mild detergent with warm water, and avoid using abrasive materials that can scratch the surface. Applying a rust inhibitor can prevent rust and corrosion, especially in areas where the door is exposed to moisture and humidity. To protect the finish, a coat of wax or sealer can be applied annually. It is also recommended to check the hinges, locks, and other hardware periodically and lubricate them to prevent friction and wear.
