Aftercare for wooden doors is essential to maintain their appearance and functionality.

Regular cleaning is important: use a soft cloth and mild soapy water to wipe down the door, avoiding harsh chemicals that could damage the finish.

For exterior doors, consider applying a protective coat of varnish or paint every few years to shield the wood from weather damage.

Inspect the door periodically for signs of wear, such as cracks, peeling paint, or warping.

Tighten any loose hinges and lubricate locks and handles to ensure smooth operation.

Additionally, check and replace weatherstripping if necessary to maintain energy efficiency and prevent drafts.

Regular maintenance will help prolong the life of the door and keep it looking its best.
