Entry doors are key contributors to the curb appeal of a home, especially if they’re sparkly clean. If you have a white or light coloured entry door, it is extra important to make sure it doesn’t accumulate dirt, mud or grime, as it will be all the more noticeable.

To clean your entry door, use mild soap and warm water and a soft sponge. Rinse the soap with water and wipe dry. For marks that won’t come off, use a mild liquid cleanser or specialized cleaning product (try out a test area first). Another great way to maintain your front door is to wax it, just like you would a car. This provides durable protection as well as making the door sparkle.

While you’re at it, make sure to clean any glass sidelites, transoms or inserts with Windex and or water and vinegar.

Remember your door is your guest’s first impression of your home, so give it so love! To browse JELD-WEN’s entry door accessories and configurations, visit jeld-wen.ca.
