- Identify the problem.
First of all, it is important to understand why your door does not open properly before you look at the solution. Examine the door closely to find the problem area.
- If there is dirt on the door, you may just need to clean it.
- If you hear the hinges squeaking, they may need to be oiled.
The most common reason for doors sticking is the weather. The air may be damp because it is raining and the wood can swell.
- Repair a swollen door.
If you can easily reach the problem area with the door open, you can sand it down with a coarse grit sandpaper. However, you may need to remove the door from the door frame by removing the hinges and then sanding the problem area if you can't easily access it.
Once you've sanded the door enough to make it close and open smoothly, don't forget to repair the finish by painting or coloring the area to match the rest of the door. Let it dry completely before closing the door.
