What maintenance will my new windows require?

Double and triple glazing should be cleaned with a soft cloth with water and washing-up liquid. Where there is more dirt and grime than normal we suggest a commercial window cleaning solution. Please remember to keep the solution away from the frame and wash away any residue with clean water.

 

Often, the most effective care methods for cleaning and extending the lifespan of a window frame are really very simple. Using a soft cloth with water and some washing up liquid is the easiest and best way to keep your frames clean.
Please do not use:

– Glass cleaner on frames
– Any other cleaning agent
– Caustic or ammonia-based cleaning agents
– Scouring powder or other abrasive cleaners
– Steel wool or scouring pads

Timber window frames will need treating every 1 or 2 years depending on the environmental conditions. South-facing windows may need treating more frequently than others due to the direction of the sun.
