Removing Corrosion And Cleaning The Metal Surface

After the metal door is closed and secure, a rust dissolving agent that is in gel form can be added to each spot with a foam brush. Once rust begins dissolving, a sponge that has an abrasive surface can be moved over the doors’ exterior to remove any rust that remains. Afterwards, a metal cleanser needs to be applied to rust in order to remove any dirty residue from the exterior. A water hose can be used to remove a rust dissolving agent and metal cleanser from a door afterwards.

Applying Paint And Sealer To Metal

Painter’s tape needs to be applied to window frames or handles on a door so that they are not exposed to paint. Paint that is designed for use on exterior metal can be applied to a clean door with a paint gun. Once paint dries, a second coat may need to be added in order to deepen the color of a door’s surface. A clear sealer that is added to a door with a paint roller will provide metal with plenty of protection from corrosion. A sealer will provide a barrier that will not allow moisture to penetrate. After sealer dries, painter’s tape can be removed and a door can be opened and closed in a normal manner.
