Composite doors are becoming the most popular door choice for most homeowners. Thousands of people are choosing the composite door over the uPVC door. This is because of a wide range of designs, styles, and colours to choose from. The composite door has more to offer than the uPVC door ever had. Not only are new composite front doors more stylish but they are also very durable and strong. When it comes to maintaining a composite door you will be happy to hear that they are low maintenance.

Before composite doors, there were uPVC and wooden doors. Wooden doors need more maintenance and freshly applied paint every few years to keep them looking good. Wooden doors without the correct treatment are known to rot and warp over time. This is because the weather over the years takes its toll on the wooden door. As a result of this more and more homeowners are choosing composite doors as there new front door.

How To Clean Your Composite Door
Before you decide to clean your composite front door you will need some of the following items.
- Warm Water
- Soft Cloths / Microfibre
Do not use abrasive materials as these can scratch the door. We use just plain warm water, as some soaps and cleaners can take away the layers of the paint. This could potentially damage your composite door.
Use the warm water and microfibre cloth to wipe down the frame of the composite door. Do this to the edges as you want to remove the build-up of grit and grime that can prevent the door from opening freely. Using a second bucket of warm water clean the glass of your composite door as well as the whole door. Once you have finished giving your door a good wipe down. Use a dry microfibre towel or cloth to dry your composite door.
