How to Clean a Wrought Iron Door

Wrought iron doors are an excellent long-term investment. If you want to get the most from that investment, however, you need to know how to clean an iron door. By learning how to maintain your wrought iron door, you can ensure that it looks as good as the day it was installed for decades to come. Here’s a simple step-by-step guide to help you get started!

  1. Select a vegetable-based soap and pour it into a bowl.
  2. Dip a soft, lint-free cloth into the soap bowl.
  3. Gently wipe down your door from top to bottom.
  4. Use a dry cloth to remove any excess moisture from the door immediately afterward.

Remove Rust From Your Iron Door

Knowing how to remove rust is an important part of learning how to maintain your doors. You can prevent rust if you clean your iron doors once or twice a month, but it can become a problem if your doors are neglected. To remove rust, you’ll need to scrape it away with a wire-metal brush or sandpaper. This will inevitably remove some paint, so you’ll have to apply a primer and metal paint afterward.
