Fauna Door Handles September 23rd, 2017 - 05:06:24
If you want to maintain the polish of these handles, then the best possible and safest method is to use the natural and harmless products available in your kitchen. One possible method is to combine flour, vinegar and salt to make a paste then apply it on your handles. Similarly, you can also use pure lemon juice as a substitute of vinegar. If you are using ammonia, then slightly dip a piece of clean cloth in it and rub it on your handles. If you are using supermarket polish, then use the same procedure as with ammonia to rub it. This polish has the ability of removing grease, grime and dirt.
Think about the overall theme to your home and the individual room and what will look good with the style of the door. A good tip when shopping for your door handles is to take a piece of wood the same type and colour as the door in question and put it against all the door handles to see if it goes, just as you would in choosing a set of curtains against the paint on the walls, you need to see if it will go. And dont be afraid to mix and match, it is not law that you have to have the same door handles throughout your home, if one of your rooms has a different feel to it go with the door handle that fits that, they dont all have to be the same!
When considering the handle, you should also consider its security especially it it is for an exterior doors. For home owners, it is important to select a knob with a quality locking system. A locksmith can assist in identifying door furniture handles that provide a decent amount of security for the people living in the house. Some door handles may come interconnected to the security system of the house to alert surveillance when the knob is operated when the alarm system is switched on.
Whilst you may have spent hours helping your grandparents polish the fireside companion set, when it comes to your door handles, the best way to keep your polished brass door furniture looking shiny is with plain and simple warm soapy water and a soft cloth. The polished brass ranges we supply have all been treated with a special lacquer, and the use of metal polishes or other abrasive cleaners will damage this and cause it to wear away far quicker than it would under normal use. Eventually after a good few years of use, this lacquer may well breakdown, at which point, you should remove the door handle or pull, and treat it with an acetone thinner applied with a soft brush. Dry well with a soft cloth and then polish up with a metal polish. Regular polishing thereafter will keep them looking great.
