As you might already know, keeping your company's automatic glass doors nice and clean is important. Few things can be as unsightly at the entrance to a business than dirty doors, but unfortunately, wiping down the doors with glass cleaner can be a tough job. Luckily, these hacks can make the job a whole lot easier. 

Minimize Decals and Stickers

You have probably seen the businesses that had tons of decals, stickers and other advertisements on their glass doors. Even though this might seem like a good place to put these things, all of this clutter can actually make your doors a lot more difficult to effectively clean. The edges of these things can attract dirt and grime, and carefully cleaning around them can be quite time-consuming. You can make things easier by minimizing the number of things that you stick to your doors, and as a bonus, you might find that your doors look a lot neater and after you remove any extras.

Use a Razor Blade

If there is any sticky residue left on the door from advertisements, or if things like chewing gum or other debris has ended up stuck to your door, don't try to remove these things with glass cleaner. Instead, quickly use a razor blade to scrape away as much as you can. Just make sure that you don't press down too hard; otherwise, you could scratch the glass if you aren't careful. Once you have scraped away what you can with a razor blade, use a degreaser to get rid of any remaining sticky residue or "gunk." Then, you'll want to follow up with your favorite glass cleaner for a streak-free shine.

Do it Frequently

Even though you or your employees might not enjoy cleaning the automatic doors, it can actually be a lot easier if it's done regularly. Consider adding a quick wipe-down to the daily cleaning routine to make more thorough cleaning easier and to ensure that your doors always look their best for your customers.

Use a Microfiber Cloth

Although you and your employees might currently use paper towels when you're cleaning the glass, you'll probably find that they can leave behind lint. For a streak-free clean that won't leave you with lint to clean up later, consider using a soft microfiber cloth each time that you clean the glass on your company's automatic glass doors.

Cleaning your company's automatic glass doors can be a big job, but if you follow these tips, you can make it a whole lot easier. For more information, contact a commercial doors expert at
