Maintaining the exterior doors of yoiur
manufactured or modular home

Exterior doors can be cleaned with hot, soapy water.

The doors should be kept adjusted so that the weather seal is tight. If the door starts sticking the home may be out of level. If this happens, check to see if your home is level. If the door wants to swing open or shut it doesn't always mean the house isn't level, although it could mean that. Be sure to check the adjustment of the door first.

If your hinges start squeaking, you might want to spray them with silicon spray.

Locks should occasionally be lubricated with graphite.
