Closet Doors Maintenance

Following our closet doors maintenance suggestions will ensure years of worry free service for your Closet Doors. Proper care, cleaning and usage of your Closet Doors is essential to ensure the longevity of the product. A little cleaning once a month will prevent a major cleaning project.

1. Track & Wheel Cleaning
In order for the Closet Door tracks and wheels to function properly they need to remain free of dirt and debris. Clean tracks and wheels every month. Remove all loose dirt and debris from the tracks and wheels with canned air or a vacuum with a soft brush attachment.

After you have removed the dirt from the tracks and wheels, simply use a soft damp cloth and non-abrasive cleaning substance to wipe them down. Do not spray the cleaning substance directly onto the tracks and wheels. Spray the cleaning substance into the soft damp cloth and then wipe the tracks and wheels down.

Do Not abrasively scrub the tracks as this will damage the powder coated, painted or anodized surface instantly.

Do Not use oil, grease, petroleum or oil base sprays as these will attract dirt or impair the proper operation of your closet doors.

2. Aluminum or Steel Cleaning
Aluminum Frames and Steel Frames are either powder coated, painted or anodized for a brilliant finish. Wipe down all frames with a soft damp cloth and non-abrasive cleaning substance.

Do Not spray the cleaning substance directly onto the frame finish. Spray the cleaning substance into the soft damp cloth and then softly wipe down the frame finish.
