A Guide to Maintaining Your uPVC Windows

uPVC Window Maintenance

Keeping your uPVC windows sparkling clean and functioning smoothly isn’t just about aesthetics; it’s about maximising their lifespan and performance. Here at Boyland Windows, we want you to enjoy your beautiful uPVC windows for years to come, so we’ve compiled this handy guide to their upkeep.

Regular Cleaning

  • Twice a year: Give your uPVC windows a thorough clean with warm soapy water and a soft cloth. Avoid harsh chemicals or abrasive cleaners, as they can damage the surface.
  • Monthly: Wipe down the frames and sills with a damp cloth to remove dust and grime build-up.
  • Spot clean: Address any spills or stains promptly to prevent them from setting in.

Hardware Maintenance

  • Hinges and locks: Lubricate hinges and locks every few months with a silicone-based spray. This will keep them moving smoothly and prevent rust.
  • Handles: Check handles regularly for any signs of wear or tear, and tighten any loose screws.
  • Window Tracks: Clean the tracks of your uPVC windows to remove any dirt or debris that may accumulate over time. This simple step ensures that your windows open and close smoothly.

Additional Tips

  • Avoid using pressure washers on your uPVC windows, as the strong force can damage the seals and frames.
  • Don’t paint your uPVC windows, as this can void your warranty and make future maintenance difficult.
  • Avoid using excessive force when operating your uPVC windows. If you encounter any resistance or difficulty in opening or closing the windows, it may be a sign that the windows need adjustments or repairs.
  • If you notice condensation build-up on your windows, address the underlying cause, such as poor ventilation or excess moisture in the home.
  • For a streak-free shine, use a mixture of white vinegar and water for cleaning the glass.
