Cleaning and maintaining your UPVC windows

Keep your new double glazing in tip top condition with our simple and inexpensive tips.

Cleaning glass and glazing panels

There is no need to spend a fortune keeping your double glazing clean; any brand of domestic glass cleaner will do the job on your doors, windows and conservatory. Sometimes a mild detergent will also be a good idea. However, be careful when using these products as chemicals within the product can stain the UPVC.

Cleaning handles, catches and letterboxes

Your handles and door furniture simply need a damp cloth and mild detergent to keep them looking smart. But DO NOT use metal cleaners – they will remove the lacquered finish and spoil their appearance for good.

Cleaning framework and sashes

For general cleaning, simply use a warm soapy water and a cloth. But for road film and stubborn marks you need a specific cleaner for UPVC products (you can get a bottle from our showroom). DO NOT use abrasive or corrosive cleaners as these will damage your frames.

Maintaining your double glazed windows

To keep your windows working smoothly, use a light machine oil hinges and all parts of the locking mechanism twice a year.
