Door Cleaning and Care

Entry Door Cleaning and Care – Tips from the Pros!

What follows are a list of suggestions to help you keep your Windura entry door system looking as beautiful as it did when it was first installed.


  • Wash with mild soap and water, rinse with water and wipe dry.
  • Keep weatherstripping clean of dirt and grit for proper seal. Wash with mild soap and water, rinse with clear water and wipe dry. Apply a light coat of wax (Lemon Pledge®) and wipe off excess.
  • For scuff marks on painted finishes, use mild liquid cleanser (such as Soft Scrub®), rinse with clear water and wipe dry.
  • If finish is accidentally scratched or chipped, clean as recommended above and use touch-up paint supplied or a standard wood finish repair crayon.
  • To protect finish, spray and wipe with a protective solution such as Armor All®.
  • For stained finishes, periodic painting with a non-yellowing clear coat of paint is recommended for doors exposed to severe weather conditions.


Much like sterling silver, even the finest brass will react naturally to the elements surrounding it. To maintain, polish with a nonabrasive automotive or furniture wax. By keeping your hardware cleaned and maintained, you will be rewarded with a long-lasting finish.

  • Tighten screws on lockset hinges when necessary.
  • Lightly oil hinges as needed. Wipe off excess.


DO NOT USE paint thinners, lacquer thinner, gasoline, kerosene or any other harsh chemical to clean surfaces of door hardware.
