uPVC Maintenance & Cleaning

How to Clean uPVC Windows, Doors, Guttering, Facias & Conservatories

It’s really quite surprising just how dirty your uPVC windows and doors can get. Whatever the time of year they will be exposed to all weathers and elements outside and the same on the inside as well. Whether you have newish uPVC windows or older style ones they will all start to lose their brightness and shine after being exposed to the elements. 

The winter weather can cause black mildew, mould, moss, general dirt, dead insects, cobwebs and the build-up of dirt and grime on your windows and doors outside and this can make your property seem dull and unkempt. Giving them a good clean with the right product will clean and brighten them and you’ll see such a difference. 

The same for the inside of your uPVC windows and doors, they will be exposed to the colder winter months and in contrast, the central heating can cause first and sometimes mildew to build up, especially where the panes of glass meets the uPVC. 

You may look at your windows and think they need replacing which is a huge cost when all they actually need is a good clean using Eco Solutions uPVC Cleaner.

Window Frame uPVC Maintenance and Cleaning

uPVC Window frames should be cleaned a minimum of twice a year to keep them looking good and ensuring they last a lifetime. The more regularly they are cleaned the easier it is next time. Start by opening the window and using a soft paintbrush to loosen any dust, dirt and cobwebs, then use a vacuum to remove anything you have dislodged. Next spray the insides of the window with Super Strength PVCU Cleaner, trying not to get too much of the product on your window seals. Leave for a couple of minutes and wipe it clean with a soft damp cloth. Repeat as you need to, although in our experience one spray will clean a really dirty window easily. Wipe it clean with a soft dry cloth. Next, close the window and repeat the same process with the Super Strength PVCU  Cleaner and the window frames will look brand new again. If the window frames are extremely dirty and they haven’t been cleaned for a long time then you may need to repeat this process again, although we have used the product on moss, mildew, dirt and mould build-up which has been there for years and the Super Strength PVCU Cleaner has cleaned them the first time. Super Strength PVCU Cleaner can be used on the insides and outsides of your uPVC Windows.
