My hardware is looking stained, how do I maintain my door?
To keep your Fab&Fix furniture sparkling, we recommend wiping it with a clean cloth soaked in warm water and mild detergent every month. Moving parts should be lightly lubricated twice a year.
Stainless steel hardware can occasionally show light tea staining, this can be rectified by polishing it with coastal DR 121-CL Stainless Steel Renovation Cleaner or, Bar Keepers Friend stainless steel cleaner.
Can I paint my door?
We don’t recommend painting our doors. Our doors feature tough, heat reflective PVC skins, meaning they are almost completely maintenance free. Although occasional maintenance is required to keep your door looking and performing its best.
Please note if you choose to paint or spray your door you will invalidate the warranty.
