UPVC windows are a popular choice for many homeowners due to their durability, energy efficiency, and low maintenance requirements. However, like any other feature of your home, they do require some level of upkeep to ensure they continue to function properly and look their best.
At Windseal Double Glazing, we understand the importance of maintaining and cleaning your UPVC windows to ensure they last for many years to come. Here are some tips to help you keep your windows in top condition:
- Clean your windows regularly
Regular cleaning is essential to prevent the buildup of dirt and grime, which can cause damage to the surface of your UPVC windows over time. Use a soft cloth or sponge and a mild detergent to gently clean the frames and glass. Avoid using harsh chemicals or abrasive materials, as these can scratch or damage the surface of your windows.
- Check for damage
Inspect your windows regularly for any signs of damage, such as cracks, chips, or warping. Address any issues as soon as possible to prevent further damage and ensure your windows continue to function properly. If you notice any damage, contact a professional window installer to assess the problem and provide a solution.
- Lubricate moving parts
If your windows have moving parts, such as hinges or locks, it’s important to keep these well lubricated to ensure they continue to function properly. Use a silicone spray or a light oil to lubricate the moving parts, being careful not to overapply as this can attract dirt and debris.
- Check the seals
The seals around your windows are important for keeping out drafts and moisture. Over time, these seals can become worn or damaged, which can lead to leaks and reduced energy efficiency. Check the seals around your windows regularly and replace them if necessary.
- Be mindful of the weather
Extreme weather conditions, such as high winds or heavy rain, can cause damage to your windows. Be mindful of the weather conditions in your area and take steps to protect your windows, such as closing them during storms or installing storm shutters.
