How To Clean A Garage Door

Home & Garden Blog

Garage door care and maintenance are important part of taking proper care of your garage door. Every two or three months you should give your garage door a proper cleaning to remove any dirt that has built up on the door and to keep it looking clean. Here is a simple step by step guide to cleaning your garage door.

Paper Towel & Glass Cleaner

You can take paper towel and simple household glass cleaner to remove access dirt and grime that has built up on the garage door. Simply spray the cleaner onto the garage door starting at the top and let it sit on the door for about a minute. Then take the paper towel and wipe up the cleaner off the door until it is dry. Repeat the process in areas of the door that have more dirt or that may need to be scrubbed a little with the wet paper towel to get out tough clinging dirt.

Garden Hose & Towel

A garden hose can make for a great cleaner for your garage door. If you have a garden hose with a spray nozzle then you can set it to the setting that has the most pressure and use it to help blow away tough stains on the door. You start by showering the entire door with water to get it wet and lubricated. Then you can move closer to door and focus the pressure from the nozzle into specific areas of the door that are the dirtiest. Once you have removed the dirt and grim, simply take a towel and wipe the door clean to remove the additional water that is on the door.

Dish Soap And Scrub Brush

You can also use simple household dish soap in a bucket with some warm water to help remove the grimy build up on your garage door. Take a soft bristled scrub brush and dunk it into the soapy water before using it on the door. Use the scrub brush to help you get rid of hard stains that are on the door or dirt that is stuck on the outside. Afterwards take a hose or another bucket of water and pour it over the door to remove any additional soap residue that may be left on the door after scrubbing it.

Carpet Cleaning Tips And Tricks

Hello, it's Trinity Wilson here and I love cleaning carpets. Having five children gave me a crash course on this fine art. While renting, it's important to keep the carpets free of stains despite the chaos that multiple children bring down after all. I learned how to lift liquids out of the carpet before they could set. I learned how to remove hidden stains well after the kids moved something over the top to cover their crime. I've even taught my kids how to clean stains out of their carpets using both natural and commercial products. I've decided to apply my skills to this website to teach my readers the best ways to approach carpet cleaning. I will share how to clean the carpet by hand, with a machine and even when to hire professionals to get the job done. Welcome to my site, please come by often!
