How to Clean Your Bi-fold Doors

Bi fold doors are a great addition to any property. They can transform an entire wall-space into contemporary glazing which has the ability to extend your interior to the outside. So it’s only natural that you would want to keep your bi folds clean and in pristine condition.

Though aluminium bi-folds require minimal maintenance, regular up-keep can help maintain both the operation and design of your doors. Luckily, no specialist cleaning treatments nor techniques are required when cleaning aluminium bi-folds making them extremely easy to maintain over its lifetime. Our super slim 120 mm sight lines enable larger frame and glazing sizes, making cleaning the bifold doors even easier. But how should you clean them?

When you think of cleaning your doors the first things that may come to mind are the windows and frames. Though these will ensure your bifolds looks sparkling clean, cleaning the tracks is what will keep your bifolds operating immaculately.

Debris can build up within the bifold tracks which can affect the operation of your doors. When you use your doors more often, such as in summer, debris can build up due to frequent walking over the tracks. Regular cleaning of the tracks can help keep your bifold in tip top condition. Simply running a vacuum nozzle along the bottom of your doors can help remove any dirt that has been collected within.

For the frames, start by dusting the top of the profile and work your way down. With our low maintenance aluminium framing no special cleaning products are required. Just mild soapy water and non-abrasives cloths, such as microfibre, will do the job for your windows and frames. Scourers and any harsh cleaning products should be avoided.

How often should I clean my bi-fold doors?

Cleaning the bifold glass panes should be done as often as the rest of the glazing in your home. This will prevent dirt and streaks from building up on the glazing. Allowing you to make the most of the expansive views bi folds have to offer. Just make sure to clean these on a cloudy day. When its sunny, the lather will dry quickly, leaving persistent streaks.

A full clean of the entire doors, including the bi fold frames and tracks, should be done every couple of months and more often during summer.

Regular cleaning and upkeep will ensure your bi-fold doors operate smoothly and continue to make an impact on your home for years to come. To find out more about our range of bi-folding doors view our product page or use our online door designer to receive a quick quote.
