Doors are an essential part of every home, providing security, privacy, and style.
To ensure your doors remain functional and aesthetically pleasing, regular maintenance is key. In this blog, we’ll discuss some practical door maintenance tips specifically tailored for homeowners in Singapore.

1. Regular Cleaning

Singapore’s humid climate can lead to the buildup of dust, dirt, and grime on your doors.

Regular cleaning with a mild detergent and water can help keep them looking their best.

Avoid using harsh chemicals that can damage the door’s finish.

2. Inspect and Repair Damages

Periodically inspect your doors for any signs of damage, such as cracks, warping, or peeling paint.

Addressing these issues promptly can prevent further damage and prolong the life of your doors.

3. Lubricate Hinges and Locks

The constant opening and closing of doors can cause hinges and locks to become stiff or squeaky.

Apply a lubricant, such as WD-40, to the hinges and locks to keep them operating smoothly.

4. Adjust and Tighten Hardware

Over time, the hardware on your doors, such as handles and knobs, may become loose.

Check and tighten any loose screws or bolts to ensure they are secure.

5. Protect Wooden Doors

If you have wooden doors, they are susceptible to damage from moisture and sunlight.

Apply a protective finish or paint to seal the wood and protect it from the elements.

6. Monitor for Signs of Termite Infestation

Termites can cause significant damage to wooden doors.

Keep an eye out for signs of termite activity, such as mud tubes or wood damage, and take action immediately if detected.

To prevent termites, we recommend the WTP Door which is 100% waterproof and termite-proof.


By following these door maintenance tips, homeowners in Singapore can ensure their doors remain in good condition and continue to serve their purpose effectively.

Regular maintenance not only extends the life of your doors but also enhances the overall appearance and value of your home.
