Installing sliding wardrobes are a simple and classy way of adding storage to maximise your bedroom space. There is a huge variety of styles and colours to choose from including mirrored sliding doors, paint finishes, wooden frames and much more to match your bedroom style. However, just like with all furniture within the home, there are still some problems that may occur so, here we tackle how to keep yours at their best.

Rollers

Sliding wardrobe doors move easily because of the rollers, it is the bottom part of the door that allows it to easily slide along the track but, if you find your door gets stuck and only moves with great force, then the rollers may just be dirty. Dirty rollers can obstruct door movements which will cause dysfunction. To fix this problem, you need to clean it immediately. Furthermore, if they have cracks, rust or bends which can happen over time, you can simply invest in new rollers.

Wheel alignment

Your wheels must be aligned properly on the track so your sliding doors can work correctly. It will be impossible to open or close them until the problem is fixed. The common reasons for this happening are that the screws that hold the wheels and the track together have become loose or fall out over time, that’s why you  should realign your wardrobe door by simply tightening the screws or replace the missing ones. Additionally, you can spray some lubricant on the rollers to help them move more easily.

Shattered glass

If you can still use the frame, then you can definitely replace the glass from the seal. If the glass pane breaks, we recommend leaving this to the experts to clean up and fix, rather than taking on the task yourself. Most repairs are simple and don’t need an abundance of money, but other repairs can be complicated and are best fixed by professionals. Before you take on a repair project by yourself; you should consider the risks, costs and time that will be spent.
