Simple Fix for Squeaky Doors

4052209-house-door-040214-2417Do you have squeaky doors that are destroying the peace in your home? This problem can easily be solved with lubrication. You don’t have to call an expert to lubricate your doors for you. This is something that you can easily do yourself. Remember, squeaking is caused by friction. By lubricating the doors, you are simply reducing the friction in the hinges when the doors open or close. Here are some simple, easy to follow steps to properly lubricate your doors:

Purchase a suitable lubricant

Find a suitable lubricant that you can use to lubricate your door hinges. WD-40 is a good lubricant but feel free to use any other lubricant you want. You can also use Vaseline or a similar product that is already available in your home to lubricate the doors.

Identify the Hinges That Need Treatment

Not all hinges may be producing the squeaking sound. You may have to open and close the doors a couple of times to identify the hinges that are producing the annoying sound.

Apply the Lubricant

Apply the lubricant to hinges that you have identified while you move the door continuously to allow better penetration. Make sure that you apply enough lubricant to each of the hinges. Make sure to clean up any lubricant that may drip onto the floor.
