Knowing that the hinges are the ones causing problems is of help in knowing where to start. When a door is opened and closed repeatedly, it’s no surprise that they can start to tarnish. Scratches and other superficial damage to the hinge can create friction and cause the door to stick.
A lubricant can solve the problem. If you are worried about the lubricant possibly staining the door, you can take the additional step of removing the door from the frame. You can find out how to remove a door from the hinges here below.
Lay newspaper on the floor. Just like the lubricant can stain the door, it can stain your floor. Cover the area directly under the hinges you are working on to prevent any dripping. Apply petroleum jelly to the hinges. After you have done this, open and close the door a few times to work the jelly into the hinge joints. WD-40 would also have the same helpful effect on your door, but it is messier and dries out faster.
You may also try tightening the hinge screws. If the door is sticking near the top or dragging at the floor when you open and close it, then the screws in the hinges may have loosened over time. Use a screwdriver to tighten each screw slowly to make sure you don’t tighten too much.
Hinge screws are known to strip out, so you may have to add a longer screw or plug the hole and then re-screw it. Test your work. You may need to go back and tighten or loosen them. By loosening the screw you will reduce the gap between the door and the frame,. Play around with it until it fits perfectly.
