Storing of Doors & Frames
Our doors and frames are packaged for transport only. The plastic wrapping is only for shipping purposes and will not protect doors and frames against elements such as water moisture* or humidity**. Please make sure to remove both doors and frames from all packaging if you will be storing them for a future install date. Use towels and make sure to store in a safe place as the frame is top heavy.
Please reference the photo on the left for an example of paint bubbling that may be caused by water/humidity if stored in plastic wrapping and left enclosed.
*Avoid any type of moisture from getting into packaging as it will not be able to escape and will cause the paint to bubble or rust. *If your doors/frames happen to get wet, they MUST be wiped down IMMEDIATELY. *If your doors/frames get wet during offload or during storage, remove doors from the box immediately to avoid damage. **Doors/frames that will be stored in humid areas will also need to be opened from transportation package immediately to avoid damage.
Cleaning & Maintaining Iron/Steel Doors & Windows
It is important to maintain your new iron/steel doors and windows throughout the year. We recommend you wipe down your door/window at least once a month with Pinky's Iron door Spray.
NOT USE ANY WATER, CHEMICAL CLEANING AGENTS, AND/OR ANY KIND OF SOAP (INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, DISH SOAP, LAUNDRY DETERGENT, BODY SOAP, ETC).
Using water, soap, and chemical cleaning agents will lead to rust and cause the paint on the door to dry out (removing the moisture from the paint), and may eventually lead to cracking/peeling of paint, discoloration, etc, over time.
Only use Blue Painters Tape on Pinky's Products
Pinky’s Iron Doors is not liable for any damages caused by misuse of tapes and adhesives on your Pinky’s product.
Please do not use any tape or adhesive other than blue painters tape to mask, cover, or for any purpose on your Pinky’s products.
If the blue painters tape is needed for extended amounts of time, please replace tape regularly as the sun can bake the adhesive onto the painted area.
If you must use red duct tape for stucco work or otherwise, please first apply the blue painters tape and mask with red duct tape over the blue painters tape to avoid any contact with the door/frames paint itself.
Using any other type of tape directly on your Pinky’s products will result in peeling/bubbling of the paint, as seen in the photo on the left.
