Whilst you may have spent hours helping your grandparents polish the fireside companion set, when it comes to your door handles, the best way to keep your polished brass door furniture looking shiny is with plain and simple warm soapy water and a soft cloth. The polished brass ranges we supply have all been treated with a special lacquer, and the use of metal polishes or other abrasive cleaners will damage this and cause it to wear away far quicker than it would under normal use. Eventually after a good few years of use, this lacquer may well breakdown, at which point, you should remove the door handle or pull, and treat it with an acetone thinner applied with a soft brush. Dry well with a soft cloth and then polish up with a metal polish. Regular polishing thereafter will keep them looking great.

Some people are eager to splurge on high-tech lock sets like keyless and card-swipe systems. However, you need to be sure if they are 100% reliable. For your front and back doors made of solid materials like wood, a single cylinder dead bolt would do. However, if you have delicate glass doors, which are accessible and attractive to burglars, your better option would be a double cylinder dead bolt, which needs to be opened with a key from both inside and out.

As door handles easily catch germs and bacteria because of the variety of individual hands that touch them in the course of a day, it is important to consider the materials used. It is believed that certain materials like brass, copper and silver discourage the growth of bacteria and germs through some kind of electro-chemical effect; while other materials like aluminum, stainless steel, glass and porcelain do not have the same action. However, this belief has remained just that... a belief: and studies have not been extensive enough to confirm or disprove this possible effect, except in the case of silver. Hospitals in particular are experimenting with handle materials as they continue their fight against infectious disease within their wards.

For instance, in addition to the knob top, which is the large knob that you would actually grab hold of to turn, handles are made with a spindle, shank, and knob rose. The knob rose is a round washer or plate used to form a socket. This piece is adapted so it can be attached to the actual door. Then, there is that spindle, which is the thin piece to which the handle attaches. The shank is the stem that projects from the door handle. Within the shank is a hole in which the spindle would be placed. For functionality, the door handle would be attached so the metal shaft can turn the latch to open the door.

Many other types of them are also available in the market and all of them are capable of greatly enhancing the looks of your house. However, the reproduction and antique period brass are like a premium type of brass as they are more durable and last longer than other types. This type of door hardware usually doesn't wear off easily and even when its finish fades away, it will still give an antique look and will match the decoration of your house. Newly installed brass door handles are always radiant, but eventually the wear and tear will cause them to lose their radiance. This wear and tear could be due to stains, grease or any other similar factor that can reduce the glow of metal.
