How to Maintain Your uPVC Windows & Doors

Jun 20,2024

uPVC windows and doors are very low maintenance and extremly durable, but we do recommend that you carry out routine maintenance at least twice a year. In areas of high exposure, you may want to do this more frequently. Your windows and doors are a valuable asset to your home and by looking after them they maintain there look and functionality from the day they were installed.

How to clean uPVC frames and Glass?

Warm soapy water can be used to rinse away any surface dirt. This is often all you need to do, and you can either rinse the frames each time you clean the window glass, or make this a periodic maintenance task in its own right.

All parts of your new windows and doors that are exposed when closed, should be washed down with warm soapy water using a soft cloth and dried thoroughly. Any parts that are exposed when the windows and doors are open, should simply be wiped clean, removing any grime, dirt, insect remains and old lubricant.

Avoid using any cleaning products that contain ammonia or any form of abrasive, particularly on handles and other metal hardware. which may react chemically with the uPVC. Mild soap in warm water should be enough to shift all but the most stubborn dirt.

Ensure that all drainage channels are clear and free from any dirt that may cause blockages.

How to Clean Hardware?

All moving parts and fixings should have an application of light oil, to keep the locking mechanism in good working order.

Maintenance of locking systems is simple: apply light oil to the moving parts, once a year. Similarly, a little grease should be applied to the locking slots to maintain smooth running.

Why Opt for uPVC Doors and Windows?

The uPVC is a popular choice among designers and homeowners. Extreme durability and robustness are some of the many reasons for the widespread popularity of uPVC doors and windows. With a long life expectancy of about 40 years, uPVC windows can withstand harsh weather conditions such as heat, cold, wind, rain, sleet, and snow. They are also equipped with UV, chemical, saltwater, high-impact, moisture, and infestation resistant properties to keep your space looking immaculate at all times. Also, apart from being durable and tough — uPVC requires very little maintenance. It doesn’t rot, flake, peel or corrode. All it requires is a wipe down with a household cleaner when it’s dirty. It is also dust-proof, termite-proof, and moisture resistant. Another major advantage of installing uPVC doors and windows is the thermal insulation that uPVC provides.

uPVC frames paired with Low-E glass can provide excellent heat insulation and can keep your home warmer during winter and cooler during summer, thereby reducing your usage of artificial heating and cooling systems, helping you save significantly on energy bills. uPVC is also intrinsically a non-toxic material, making it an eco-friendly option. uPVC doors and windows also provide insulation against outside noise. They are usually equipped with multi-point locking systems, providing a high level of security to your property. Moreover, uPVC doors and windows have galvanized steel reinforcements, making a break-through nearly impossible.

When it comes to choosing the material you want to use for your door and windows, it all boils down to your personal choice.
