The Importance of Proper Maintenance

Following installation, regular maintenance is essential to ensure the long life and smooth operation of your Andersen patio door, as well as maximum warranty coverage. To get the most out of your Andersen patio door, simply observe the following care and maintenance guidelines.

  • Maintaining hinged patio doors: To prevent bowing, splitting and discoloration, interior wood surfaces must be finished. A mild solution of soap and water, along with a soft brush or cloth, can be used to clean the exterior frame, panels and screens. To avoid surface damage, never use abrasive or corrosive cleaning solutions. A non-abrasive cleaner or a solution of water and ammonia or alcohol can be used to get rid of stubborn, hard-to-clean stains.
  • Maintaining sliding patio doors: To remove dirt and grime from your gliding patio door, use a soft cloth or brush along with a mild soap-and-water solution. Insect screens should be removed and cleaned with soapy water and a garden hose. To protect the finish, avoid using abrasive solvents or cleaners on any Andersen patio door material.
  • Cleaning the track: To keep the track clean and your gliding patio door operating smoothly, use a vacuum to remove dirt and debris from inside the tracks where the door and screen slide. Don’t use lubricants on the track itself, as this will cause the rollers to slide instead of roll.
  • Door hardware: Wash hardware using a soft cloth and a solution of water and mild soap. Avoid using abrasive cleaners, brushes and cloths that can damage the clear protective coating. A non-abrasive paste wax, when applied as directed, can be used to protect and restore luster to the hardware.
