Tips to Maintain Your Patio Doors This Spring Season

Like any fixture in your home, your patio doors require regular maintenance to work properly. Otherwise, air leaks and water damage may develop, compromising the looks and performance of your doors.

Here are a few tips to follow when maintaining your patio doors this spring.

Maintain the Tracks

As time goes by, dirt and debris can easily build up in the tracks of your patio door, so your first step should be cleaning this area. Once the dirt and debris has been removed, grease the tracks if needed for smoother operation.

Inspect the Screen

If your patio doors have a screen, focus on this next. According to door installation experts, leaving your door’s screen uninspected for too long can leave you vulnerable to pest infestation. Inspect the screen for any damage and replace it if needed.

Maintain the Glass and Hardware

Wipe down the glass alongside the door frame on both sides to maximize the amount of natural light that enters your home. If the glass becomes dirty, this can impede the view, reduce the amount of natural light in your home and compromise the energy efficiency of the door.

While you’re at it, make sure the door’s hardware such as the knobs and security latches are working properly as well.
