Most people know that high quality UPVC double glazed windows, doors and patio doors are virtually maintenance free, which is a major advantage. There is no tiresome painting or treatments to do regularly, although there are a few small steps you can take to keep them looking pristine. Cleaning these window systems is a fairly pain free process, and fast too, leaving you lots of time to relax and look at the view.

Certain designs such as Tilt and Turn windows from specialists like Profile 22, are created not only with safety in mind but ease of cleaning also. Other styles have exceptional streamlining such as Optima Flush Sash. These leading windows and doors are available in Wickford from reputable installers Essex Trade Windows.

A few tips for keeping your UPVC windows, doors and sliding patio doors in tip top condition include: –

1) Dirt & Debris Removal
Sometimes there are ledges or nooks and crannies around frames where leaves or other debris can build up. To clear this you can use a vacuum with a soft brush attachment, or even just a soft brush to avoid scratches..

2) Soapy Warm Water
Weak dish soap in warm water and a soft, clean cloth is an excellent way to remove dirt from UPVC frames. Abrasive cleaners such as cream cleaners, solvents or rough materials are not recommended as they could damage the surface finish. Use a soft, dry cloth to wipe away excess water.

3) Cleaning External and Internal glass
This is best done on a cloudy day, as sunshine could cause streaks as the window dries. Dust the windows first to get rid of any particles and debris. There are a number of preparatory products on the market including eco friendly versions. Alternatively make up your own solution with a mix of water and white vinegar [a cup of each mixed and put in a spray bottle]. Paper towels, kitchen roll or even newspaper are great for wiping and drying off the spray.
