Doors need routine maintenance in order to keep them working properly at all times. One of the most overlooked hardware on doors, are the hinges. With time, rust and dirt are piling up and make them noisy. There is a real quick method to get rid of that noise, and this is by using steel wool to remove the dirt or rust. If you are a handy person, you can follow the next steps to do it.
Use wool if your hinge pins are dirty. If your door is squeaking, your hinges might be too dirty to function properly. Lubricants will not remove dirt, rust, or grease. Inspect your hinges carefully. If they are discolored or coated in slime, try wool first.
Remove the hinge pins. Once you have removed them and propped your door up, place your hinge pins over a sink. Find a steel wool pad and place it nearby to begin cleaning the hinge pins. Scrub the hinge pins with the steel wool. Super fine steel wool works best to thoroughly clean the pins. Remove any and all dirt, rust, or residual paint. Rub the hinge pin in small circular motions to remove stubborn spots. Use a diluted household cleaner along with the steel wool to remove stubborn dirt or rust spots.
Coat the hinge pins with a lubricant. After your hinge pins are cleaned, use oil or melted wax to evenly cover the hinge pins. In a pinch, grease or dish soap can also work. Then, place the pins back into the hinge, and open the door a few times to test their sound. Wipe off excess grease, dish soap, or oil if you use any as a lubricant.
Easy to follow, these steps are for people who can hold a heavy door. Keep in mind that our Toronto team is always available to come and service your door and its hardware, all for a very affordable price. Call us now for more information.
