Caring For Your Wrought Iron Gates

A wrought iron gate is a wonderful addition to any property. There are a few things that you can do to keep the gate looking great for many years to come as well. Here are 3 tips for caring for your wrought iron gates.

Take protective measures.

When wrought iron is exposed to the elements it can rust, so it is smart to take steps to prevent this sort of damage.

One of the very best measures to take is to apply wax to your gate. The wax will stop the elements attacking the wrought iron.

Although there are many benefits to this method, the draw back is that you do have to apply the wax fairly regularly. So it may not be suited to some lifestyles.

Paint your gate.

Painting a wrought iron gate will also help protect it from the elements. As long as a complete coat is applied, the paint will protect the gate for quite a while.

You do have to reapply the paint every so often and you may have to touch it up if you notice a scratch but it is a great barrier between the iron and the air.

Clean your gate.

You can clean a wrought iron gate very easily. All you need is some warm water and washing up liquid.

You can use a toothbrush to get to the hard to reach areas and then just rinse it with water. This is great way to keep your gate looking good and also to spot any problems that you may need to sort out.
