Keeping your bi-fold doors well maintained and beautiful takes very little time but it is important that you do it regularly.
Bi-fold doors add such elegance to a space that keeping them in tip-top condition makes complete sense. Your home is benefiting from your bi-fold doors and your lifestyle is better thanks to them…so help them last a lifetime with good, thorough maintenance on a regular basis.
Cleaning bi-fold doors
When cleaning your bi-fold doors, don’t simply concentrate on the glass. Ensure that the working parts are clean and free of dust, grime and anything which may impede their movement.
Use a clean cotton cloth to thoroughly clean in small gaps and crevices at least once a week.
Regular hardware inspections
The hardware includes any handles, hinges or screws. Have a little look on a regular basis…check that nothing has worked loose or become damaged. This will help to ensure that your bi-fold doors do not become slow to open or stick.
Ensure tracks are smooth and running well
Inspect tracks on a regular basis to make sure they are not damaged or obstructed by any foreign bodies (like twigs or gravel).
Look after the surfaces
Clean the surfaces of your bi-fold doors regularly with a suitable cleaning agent. Look out for any bumps or nicks which could worsen if not repaired.
In general, as long as they are not abused, your bi-fold doors should last a lifetime. The use which they’re subjected to should not affect their longevity and any maintenance issues which may crop up over the years are very minor.
Clean them regularly to continue to benefit from the beautifully increased light which they offer and ensure that mechanisms are well looked after so that your daily use of them can be simple and easy to enjoy.
