    Default How do you keep iron doors from rusting?

    If you have car wax, that's another great option for protecting your door from rust. Just like with your car, it will make water roll right off your door rather than resting there and causing rust. You can apply the wax with a lint-free cloth, and you'll only need to reapply it every six months or so.

    As wrought iron doors are relatively low-maintenance, the best thing you can do for them is to keep them clean. For many of us in Texas, we can get away with washing our iron doors once a month. However, for those living closer to the coast, you’ll be better off giving your iron door a wash twice a month. The salty coastal air is corrosive to the metal, so frequent cleaning will help prevent that corrosion.

    When cleaning your door, most common multi-purpose household cleaners or alcohol-based cleaning solutions will be okay. In general, you should be using a cleaner that would work on light switches and remote controls. You’ll also want to have some sort of cloth or microfiber pad to rub cleaner on the door. Don’t apply the cleaner directly to the door. Instead, mix it with water to put on a cloth or pad or apply some cleaner to an already wet cloth or pad. After cleaning the entire door, rinse it with water, then rub it down with a dry cloth or sponge to get most of the water off. After that, it can be allowed to air-dry the rest of the way.

    Usually, if I'm concerned about this issue, I go to the mechanic and ask him to fix the problem. But when this situation happened to my door in the house, I seriously feared for my safety. It really made me think about buying intercom systems to be aware of who comes to my house or in my absence. It is a good experience.
