Door maintenance, home improvementDoors often grow rough edges on the inside and the lower deck after years of use and wear. It looks bad to the eyes and aesthetically unappealing. Once the cracks and patches set in, the whole door seems to lose its beauty. It is necessary to do something before the need for a door replacement arises which can cost much to the pockets. Take a rough-grit sandpaper and start sanding the edges where it has been scratched to remove the varnish and paint. Then take a medium sandpaper and sander to even down the rough edges and areas that had been causing all the problem. Rush of traffic and opening and closing many times a day makes a door edge get prone to cracks and patches. Finally use a fine sandpaper and blow the dust with compressed air and wipe the door with a clean, dry rag. Smooth out the edges in this way to save the cost of replacing doors for some more years.
