Cleaning Door Thresholds & Floor Trims

Tips and advice on how to keep your thresholds looking smart

  • As soon as your door threshold has been fitted, remove the protective tape and wipe over with a dry cloth, to remove any fingerprints.
  • When cleaning door thresholds and floor trims, always cover the surrounding flooring with a protective, clean cloth to avoid marking, staining or damage.
  • If using a damp cloth, always dry your thresholds and trims immediately afterwards.
  • It is best to use the soft brush attachment on a vacuum cleaner when vacuuming so as to avoid the metal plate and plastic wheels causing scratch marks.

The Premier range
Including: Double Z, Square, Z, Single, Ramps, Euro, Nosings, Lips,T Bars & Vinyl Edge

Satin Brass and Polished Brass finishes:
For a natural finish, simply leave to age (oxidise). If you prefer to maintain the original finish then you will need to polish them occasionally, using a proprietary brass polish and following the manufacturer’s instructions.

Satin Nickel, Chrome, and Brushed Chrome finishes:
Occasionally polish with a suitable metal polish and follow the manufacturer’s instructions.

Pewter, Antique Bronze and Antique Brass finishes:
Should any of these finishes become marked then you will need to polish them with a proprietary metal polish and in time they will then age naturally, back to the original, supplied finish. Always follow the instructions on the manufacturer’s tin/bottle.

The Feline range
Including: the Feline 1, 2, BNF and Feline Edge

Polished Brass finish:
To maintain the polished finish, regular cleaning with a suitable metal polish and soft cloth is recommended. Alternatively, simply allow the finish to age naturally (oxidise).

Antique Brass and Antique Bronze finishes:
Simply wipe with a dry cloth or duster. Do not use any liquids on these finishes.

Chrome and Nisheen finishes:
Simply wipe with a dry cloth or duster, from time to time. If the door threshold is significantly soiled, then use a damp cloth and wipe dry immediately.

The Aluminium (AL) range of door bars and trims
Including AL/10, AL/92, AL/Cap It, AL/ANF and AC38 (no screws) and Extra Wide SSEP

Polished Aluminium finish:
This highly polished finish requires regular cleaning to keep it looking pristine. Use a suitable metal polish and a soft cloth and ensure all traces of polish are removed during polishing.

Satin Aluminium finish:
This metal threshold finish requires minimal cleaning and maintenance. Occasionally, dust with a dry cloth or if the marks are more significant then use a damp cloth and wipe dry immediately. It is also possible to remove some marks and light scratching with a Scotchpad – make sure you rub in the direction of the satin grain.

Brushed and Bright Stainless Steel finish
These stainless steel finishes require regular dusting to prevent a build-up of dirt and dust. To clean, use soap, ammonial or detergent and warm water. Sponge with a soft cloth and then wipe with clean water and dry immediately with a dry, soft cloth. Goddard Stainless Steel Care may be used for stubborn stains.
