Have you ever been walking down the stairs and heard a weird noise like an old door squeaking? Well, if your door is making that sound then it’s probably because there might be some dust or dirt stuck in the weather stripping. If this happens to you, don’t worry! We’re going to show you how to fix that problem with just a few simple tools and supplies! 

A squeaky door is typically an easy fix, but sometimes it can be a little more than that. It’s important to get these things fixed right away so they don’t become worse problems in the future. 

How to fix a squeaky door?

We’ve discussed before the best lubricant for door hinges. A squeaky door is never a good sound. It’s an annoying sound, and if left untreated for too long it could lead to other problems such as sagging or dry rot!

Below you can find the steps to fix the squeaky door sound:

  • Turn OFF all power supplies to the outlets where they are plugged IN using fuse holders located next to them so there isn’t any juice going through when unplugged 
  • Take off each individual switch plate on both sides of the room with flathead screwdrivers once done remove light fixtures 
  • Carefully pull down every wire nut connecting lights together 
  • Close doors after making sure everything has been reconnected properly

 How to tighten door hinges?

The first step is to make sure the hinges are tight. If they need renovation, start by giving them a good clean-up and then remove any rust with steel wool or sandpaper before priming it black as well! 

It is important to tighten the hinge screws when adjusting them, even if it has been for only a short time. If you leave these loose and allow their holes to get enlarged over time due to inactivity of hinges then eventually they will no longer be able to hold tight because of how large those screwdriver slots are becoming!

Make sure you tighten all the screws before installing your hinges. If there is still a tiny bit of play in them, then it’s time for some door surgery! Here’s how:

The holes from old or improperly installed hardware can make life difficult when trying to find an appropriate solution; luckily we’re here with one easy fix-tighten up those bad boys and get back together like nothing happened (hopefully). The best way would be by taking care of not only small screw heads but also larger ones so both will stay put better than ever after installation

How to clean door hinges?

To clean door hinges, remove the hinge pins and wipe them down with a cloth or sponge. You can also use spray earwax removal products on stubborn places to get them off easier!
