Hey guys quick question. What’s your policy / procedure for doors when your washing a house? Now I know if it’s a wood stained door, you don’t do anything, you cover it with plastic and you stay away from it with water and especially chem. How about more common doors like fiberglass or metal.? White or painted. Do you just not wash them? Do you just rinse with water and no chem do you still cover in plastic and stay away. Or do you treat them like the rest of the house and spray with chem and then rinse? What’s the correct / best practice.
I wash them with my standard housewash mix. Rinse like normal. Sometimes the windows along the sides of the door are framed in and could use an extra shot of mix or a stronger dose from a pump up along the caulk around window. Same goes with the rubber seal around garage doors.
If the door is painted a dark color you may want to exercise caution with your mix to ensure you don’t stress the paint.
We don’t wash doors, even in breezeways. At a house we’ll wipe it down with a towel
Same. My customers expect it, especially with the rubber seal being moldy. As mentioned a lacquered door or dark painted one gets skipped.
Wiping them down or using a hand sprayer is probably the best way to go. It doesn’t take much to get around weather stripping, with a pressure machine or a 60 psi softwash rig. How would you know whether or not they have $1,000s in a beautiful hardwood floor, just the other side of that door? SH would do the same thing to that floor as it would that stained wood door.
If the painted door gets too much stress i’d recommend you bring it along with you all day fishing on the lake, this will fix it.
I usually offer it CBD gummies to calm it down!
