Wooden interior doors are everywhere you look in the house; they are the most commonly used doors for the apartment interiors.

The doors are valued for their durability and easy-to-handle factor.

Unlike every other door types, interior doors need to be maintained to last long and remain beautiful for a long period.

 

  • Doorknob screws often get loose. Regularly check and tighten them;
  • fumigate your wooden doors. Fumigation is performed while or before the doors are fixed and it lasts only for a few years, not forever. We advise that you check your indoors for termites every six months and fumigate the wooden doors every two years;
  • pay attention to cobwebs. Spiders love wooden doors and spread their cobwebs over it at every chance they get. Be sure to wipe these cobwebs off regularly;
  • dust off your wooden doors. You will make the doors shine brighter, bring out their colors, restore their radiance and attractiveness;
  • oil the hinges: just like any other door, wooden door hinges need to be oiled regularly. This easies the opening and closing of the door and stops the grinding sounds;
  • remove hindrances from the door path to remove the unnecessary load on the door hinges, otherwise, they will wear out early and might fall out the frames.
