Tips for Window Care


It is a popular misconseption that an installation of uPVC replacement windows and doors puts an end to window maintenance! Yes, timber windows should really be sanded down, painted and varnished annually/bi-annually but Replacement Windows and Doors also need some regular TLC, to ensure they are functioning correctly and that their warranty is still valid! If you read the small print of most order forms it states that, in order to ensure that your 10 year guarantee remains valid, proper care and maintenance needs to be given to your windows and doors. We recommend a cleaning and maintenance schedule as listed below.

1-Locks should be oiled, using a light oil, twice a year. This will ensure smooth movement.

2-Any make of glass cleaner should be adequate to clean the glass. Regular cleaning is the best way to maintain the look of your windows & doors.

3-Cleaning PVC-u Frames. A mild solution of warm water or pure water is ideal for cleaning PVC-u. Never use anything abrasive that could scratch or damage the frame. If in doubt, it is a great idea to employ a window cleaner who is experienced in cleaning PVC products and will have all the correct equipment.
