When buying your ideal door, make sure you understand how to give it the proper care and maintenance it requires to guarantee it lasts a lifetime. Composite doors are a great choice for a home because of their durability, strength, and elegance.
Composite doors, unlike wooden doors, are incredibly low maintenance and require very little upkeep, which is another reason they are such a popular door choice.
Our composite doors at Bespoke are coated with a strong, long-lasting paint that requires no care. However, we recognise that your door may appear dull and dusty at times due to normal wear and tear and seasonal changes. You can take a few steps to keep it in the finest shape possible.
We’d want to take advantage of this chance to demonstrate how to maintain your composite door, so it looks as nice as the day you got it.

Composite door maintenance in general
As previously said, Bespoke’s composite doors need low maintenance, making maintaining your door a breeze. Cleaning your Bespoke composite door does not necessitate any specific knowledge or equipment.
Although the paint used on the Bespoke composite front door is exceptionally durable, a build-up of dirt and toxins from pollution can cause the paint finish to deteriorate and shorten its lifespan. We’ll go over how to maintain your composite door looking as new as the day you bought it later in this post.

Wipe down your door furniture with a gentle cloth soaked in warm water with a light detergent when cleaning it. Bi-annually, all mechanical parts should be gently lubricated.
Before you begin cleaning your door, keep in mind to always follow the manufacturer’s directions and avoid using excessive amounts. It is usually advisable to use a very light detergent (warm soapy water) and test a small area before using any cleaning goods.
Avoid using bleaching chemicals in solvent-based or abrasive cleaning solutions, as they will degrade the quality of the painted or anodised surfaces and void your door’s guarantee.
Regularly clean your composite doors.
We recommend regularly washing your composite door with hot soapy water and a gentle microfiber towel to ensure it looks new. You may do this once a month or whenever you choose. It’s recommended to avoid putting a rough-sided sponge or abrasive brillo pad on your finish since it might scratch it. To remove dirt particles and grit, use a soft camel hairbrush.
Before you begin cleaning, make sure your surface is free of any grit or stones that might scrape against your door.
Wash your door carefully with the sponge and warm soapy water, being sure to reach right around the edges. If your door is very filthy, refill your basin with warm soapy water to finish cleaning it, making sure no traces or streaks remain. If your door has glass, wipe clean any extra filth with a heated cloth, which will also remove any stains on the glass. To finish, carefully dry your glass with a dry towel.
To avoid leaving any scars, we recommend keeping your door open to allow the air to dry it completely.
We recommend lubricating the locking system twice a year by adding oil to the hooks, deadbolt, latch face, and roller sides. A standard lubricant should be used to lubricate the roller slots. Spray a silicone or graphite-based lubricant into the cylinder twice a year to keep it lubricated. In the cylinder, never use grease or oil.
what is tea staining?
The oxidation of surface impurities on stainless steel causes tea stains. It’s sometimes mislabeled as stainless steel corrosion, although it’s caused by a lack of removal of surface impurities, which causes oxidation and staining. Although it does not affect the material’s structural integrity or a lifetime, it might be unappealing to the eye.
What are the causes of tea staining?
Salt, sand, dust, debris, and pollutants accumulated on the surface and lack basic cleaning and maintenance are the most common causes of tea staining. Wind and weather conditions also have a role, with the intensity of the circumstances increasing as the product gets closer to the coast. Tea staining is less common if the stainless steel is cleaned regularly.
Cleaning your door may be simple and quick, and it doesn’t require any special products or sprays. It is entirely up to you when you feel your door needs a mild cleaning, and some may require frequent cleanings depending on where your property is located.
