Fauna Door Handles September 05th, 2018 - 21:50:37
Door handles can sometimes fade into the background even though we use them on a regular basis. Think about all the times you walk in and out of a room and you use the door handle but because we do it so often its almost like autopilot and we dont really look at the handles we are using. There is a massive choice in the array of handles today and by choosing the right style of door handle for your doors and room you can make your door handles take centre stage and the talking piece of that particular room.
The quality of the knobs is important since handles are used regularly. There are various materials used to make door handles. Stainless steel is one other most durable materials for door furniture knobs. There are both satin stainless and polished stainless knobs. There are different grading of the stainless steel and you can get an average grade for your household use. Chrome and brass are also durable materials for door handles. Other knobs such as glass are delicate and may be inappropriate for exterior doors. Though they are very beautiful and classy they may easy be dirtied and will look bad if not cleaned and shined. Wood knobs are also available. They may not be as durable as the steel handles but they are much cheaper. Besides the material used in making the door furniture handles you should also be keen to buy knobs from a reputable company to be guaranteed of durability and quality.
If you want to maintain the polish of these handles then the best possible and safest method is to use the natural and harmless products available in your kitchen. One possible method is to combine flour vinegar and salt to make a paste then apply it on your handles. Similarly you can also use pure lemon juice as a substitute of vinegar. If you are using ammonia then slightly dip a piece of clean cloth in it and rub it on your handles. If you are using supermarket polish then use the same procedure as with ammonia to rub it. This polish has the ability of removing grease grime and dirt.
Whilst you may have spent hours helping your grandparents polish the fireside companion set when it comes to your door handles the best way to keep your polished brass door furniture looking shiny is with plain and simple warm soapy water and a soft cloth. The polished brass ranges we supply have all been treated with a special lacquer and the use of metal polishes or other abrasive cleaners will damage this and cause it to wear away far quicker than it would under normal use. Eventually after a good few years of use this lacquer may well breakdown at which point you should remove the door handle or pull and treat it with an acetone thinner applied with a soft brush. Dry well with a soft cloth and then polish up with a metal polish. Regular polishing thereafter will keep them looking great.
