Don’t Fit New Doors Into A Damp Room
The first thing to consider is the actual room that you are putting the doors into. If you are putting them into a newly built room that’s just been plastered or the floor has just been screeded we advise, irrespective of what type of doors you are putting into the room, to let the room dry out properly before you fit your new doors.
We recommend Vuplex anti-static cleaner
For high gloss doors we recommend using Vuplex which is a plastic cleaner and anti-static polish. We sell Vuplex anti-static cleaner on our website, and always use it with the microfiber cloth which we include with the can of cleaner.
Cleaning your new high gloss doors
Start by removing the protective film off the door. This makes the door very static, so using the Vuplex anti-static cleaner is a good way of helping to eliminate the static, which attracts potentially damaging dust particles - your doors will stay cleaner for longer. Vuplex anti-static cleaner helps to cure the surface of the door too and it gives the surface a great shine and removes any finger marks.
Cleaning your new satin or wood grain finish doors.
For doors that have a satin or wood grain finish we would recommend cleaning the surface with just warm water and a mild detergent. You should avoid any harsh or abrasive cleaners and take care to dry the door afterwards.
Particular attention should be made to doors under a sink when you wash up if the water goes everywhere, take a minute when you have finished to dry the doors off.
Doors fitted adjacent to any heat source should be protected with heat protector strips which are available for purchase on this website.
Avoid placing any heat and steam producing appliances (such as toasters, deep fat fryers, kettles, bread makers etc) directly below your doors as this can cause damage. The correct care will help ensure that your new doors have a long and happy life.
