3 Tips To Prevent Commercial Doors From Showing Wear And Tear

Commercial doors can go through a lot, since there might be a lot of foot traffic that goes in and out of your doors each day. Because of this, it can be easy for commercial doors to start showing the signs of wear and tear a lot more quickly than people expect. Luckily, there are ways that you can prevent this from happening. Follow these tips if you'd like to keep your commercial doors looking their best for as long as possible.

1. Choose Darker Colored Doors

When selecting commercial doors, it can be easy to be attracted to bright white doors, which can look nice and clean. However, these doors can be prone to showing dirt, stains, and wear and tear a whole lot more quickly. Consider choosing darker colored doors, such as dark gray doors, which might not show as much dirt. If you are planning on painting your commercial doors to extend their lifespans and to give them a quick and affordable freshening up, consider choosing a darker color rather than a lighter color for this same purpose.

2. Install Kick Guards

Have you thought about installing kick guards, which are metal or plastic protective covers, on the bottoms of your commercial doors? If not, it might be something that you will want to look into. You should be able to find kick guards that can be installed on your existing commercial doors, so you won't have to worry about a replacement. These guards are designed to make the bottoms of your doors more durable, which can help protect them in the event that a customer or employee bumps them with a cart or wheelchair or if someone kicks the door open with their foot.

3. Clean Them Regularly

No matter how durable your commercial doors might be, there is a good chance that they will start showing dirt, grime and fingerprints over time. If you don't do something about it, the dirt can pile up and cause stains that can be a lot more difficult to clean. Plus, it can make your doors look bad in the meantime. Taking the time to wipe them down regularly is a good way to keep them looking great and to prevent permanent stains.

As you can see, there are steps that you can take to help prevent your commercial doors from showing wear and tear. If you follow these tips, you can help ensure that your commercial doors look their best for a long time to come.
