Wooden doors & frame designs from Mikasa Doors

Without proper maintenance, wooden doors tend to get dirty with time. A dirty door, no matter how sophisticated the leaf or door frame design, diminishes the overall aesthetics of your residential or commercial spaces. That’s why you should clean your wooden doors at regular intervals. There are many cleaning methods that you can implement to keep your wooden doors in the best shape. To help make things easy, we have compiled a list of 3 evergreen cleaning tips to keep your doors fresh all year long.

1. Occasional light wash

Of course, not all doors require a heavy cleaning all the time. Most of the time, what is needed is only an occasional light wash with water and mild soap. Get a bowl of warm water and add a small amount of mild dish soap. Now, use a non-abrasive sponge to scrub the door’s surface. Make sure that you wipe around its edges to remove hidden dirt particles and minor marks, if any. Once the cleaning part is done, make sure that there is no soap residue on the doors’ surface. The most convenient way to do this is to wipe the door with a cloth and clean water. Always dry wooden doors properly after cleaning. You may wipe with a clean dry towel or point a table fan towards the door to accelerate the drying process.

2. Regular dusting

It’s a given that even the cleanest of living and work spaces end up accumulating cobwebs and dust over time. Doorways are most prone to the build-up of dirt particles, which sometimes escapes your notice. The intricate detailing of a door frame design and its flat edges make them particularly susceptible to dust. The easiest way to prevent wooden doors from getting dirty is to conduct regular dusting sessions. Use feather dusters, which are soft enough to not scratch the surface and effective enough to get rid of hidden dirt. Sometimes, however, it is impossible to reach into close gaps. In such scenarios, using a paintbrush should help you access hard-to-reach areas.

3. Routine polishing

Once you have cleaned your wooden doors, it is time to add a finishing touch with some liquid furniture polish. Simply spray good quality liquid furniture polish on a clean piece of cloth and wipe the door surface to brighten up its natural sheen. This should guarantee the best aesthetic appeal which elevates the overall decor of your spaces and help ensure the doors’ longevity.
