Garage Doors bear the brunt of all weather conditions, and are always forgotten and abused by users. If you haven’t cleaned your garage door in a while, maybe it’s time to do so now. Here are 4 easy steps to get optimal results when washing the door:
- Wash the door surfaces and windows of your garage with a mild liquid soap (such as a car-washing soap) and water. Wash both the interior and exterior using a sponge, cloth and/or soft brush.
- Do not use harsh or detergents. This can damage the painted surface of the door or the seals.
- Rinse thoroughly with a water hose, but do not use a pressure washer. This, too, can damage the surface. Many people have used pressure washers and taken the paint off their door
- If you are cleaning something more stubborn than dirt or road salt, such as oil stains, you can spot-clean the area with a diluted bleach and water solution. Be sure to never mix bleach with other cleanser because the mixture will cause harmful fumes. Immediately after spot cleaning, rinse all surfaces thoroughly.
