Getting the Best From Your UPVC Windows
So, you have your new UPVC windows installed and you are, quite rightly, very pleased with the results; but have you given much thought at all as to which are the best methods to clean them?
Whilst harsh chemicals can be used on some types of window, they should be avoided at all costs with UPVC as they may well cause significant, and permanent, damage. Scouring pads or other harsh materials should also be avoided as these are likely to permanently scar or scratch the UPVC material.
Depending on your own finances, you may wish to consider leaving the cleaning of your new windows to one of the UPVC cleaning services that are skilled and experienced in cleaning them in the safest way, with the best results. However, if this is not possible, one of the simplest and safest ways to clean them is by using a mixture of water and white vinegar.
To clean UPVC windows
First of all, remove any excess dirt and dust before adding the water/white vinegar mixture (one part vinegar to four parts water) to a spray bottle and spraying the mixture liberally onto the frames.
Leave this mixture on for a couple of minutes and then wipe clean with a clean damp cloth.
One little tip which will help to ensure that your frames last for a very long time, is to remember to add a little light lubricant to the hinges from time to time.
This simple action will help to prevent the inevitable wear and tear that occurs, especially during the warmer months when the windows will be open and closed more often.
From time to time, also make sure to check for loose screws. This should not happen very often and there is no need to be obsessive about this, but catching a loose screw in its early stages will help to prevent bigger problems from occurring later on.
If you are in a hurry
Perhaps you have guests coming at short notice, baby wipes make an excellent quick solution and you can simply give them a quick wipe down to make them look as new as the day that they were fitted.
If all these seems like hard work, or if you think that you are likely to forget to clean them on a regular basis, and then contact one of the UPVC cleaning services that will offer advice as to how often they should visit.
You will find these companies helpful and it will also remove a little of the stress from your already busy life.
