ouve taken the time to decide on the style design and finish for your new door handles youve fitted them and they look great. Now you want to keep them looking like new but whats the best way to care for and clean them? External door handles may need a different type of care and maintenance to those used indoors however it doesnt need to be time consuming or expensive to keep on top of it. The finish on your door handle or door pull will determine the type of product best suited to keeping it clean and functional.
NEVER use wire wool or carbon steel brushes to clean your stainless steel door handles and pulls - this can cause damage to the surface and allow particles to become embedded in the surface leading to rusting or other corrosion occurring. Warm water mild detergent and a soft cloth are all you really need to keep your stainless steel clean and make sure to dry it well after cleaning to avoid any water marks being left behind. For more stubborn marks any non-scratching household abrasive cleaner should do the trick again make sure to rinse and dry thoroughly!
Think about the overall theme to your home and the individual room and what will look good with the style of the door. A good tip when shopping for your door handles is to take a piece of wood the same type and colour as the door in question and put it against all the door handles to see if it goes just as you would in choosing a set of curtains against the paint on the walls you need to see if it will go. And dont be afraid to mix and match it is not law that you have to have the same door handles throughout your home if one of your rooms has a different feel to it go with the door handle that fits that they dont all have to be the same!
