Cleaning your door
Use a mild detergent (such as dish soap), lukewarm water, and a soft cloth to clean the pet door frame, the PVC vinyl flaps, and the security cover. Simple Green is also excellent for cleaning the flaps. Never use an ammonia-based cleaner on your pet door. See top video below.
A vinyl protectant coating can be applied to your pet door’s flaps to prolong their life. If desired, you may add this protection by applying a vinyl protector (such as Armor-all) or Turtle Wax to the flaps.
If you purchased a Hale Pet Door™ wall model with a tunnel, the carpet can be easily cleaned with any vacuum with a hose. If it should become stained, any carpet spot cleaner should work to remove the stain.
All glass used in our “In Glass”, “Panel” and “Window” models is tempered safety glass and can be cleaned with any standard glass cleaning product.
The magnets and weather stripping on your Hale Pet Door™ are all fully adjustable. If necessary, use a flat head screwdriver to pry the magnets out. Or you can turn the screwdriver around and use the handle to tap them in gently. They can then be replaced or repositioned as needed. See bottom video below.
