The best advice we can give to keep your new product in ‘tip-top’ condition, is to clean them as often as possible.
As a minimum all uPVC products should be cleaned twice a year with warm, soapy water. Non-abrasive cloths should be used and you should never use abrasive cleaners. Horizontal surfaces (like the external cills) will be the first to show when they require cleaning, just wipe over with warm soapy water.
Conservatory Roof Cleaning
Conservatory roofs should be cleaned in the same way as above, however you should never walk on conservatory roofs, they are not designed to take this weight. You can purchase extended reach poles to aid cleaning or employ a specialist roof cleaning contractor. Pilkington Activ “Self Cleaning” glass roofs should be cleaned in accordance with manufacturer’s recommendations.

Handles and other furniture should also been be wiped over regularly with warm soapy water. We recommend monthly cleaning of chrome/gold finish products, especially external hardware.

The best way to clean glass sealed units in the past was with warm-soapy water or recommended glass cleaners. We have found a glass cleaning product called e-cloths. Our fitters use them and we have found the results are excellent. Each E-cloth has a huge number of strands giving the E-cloths their excellent cleaning capability and their high absorbency. When water is added the strands break up, absorb dirt and grease into the cloth and holds it, without leaving it behind on the glass. No cleaning chemicals are required, just water! E-cloths will last you a long time – at least 300 washes guaranteed. We sell the window cleaning pack from our showroom for £9.49 inc VAT, this provides two cloths, a deep cleaning cloth and polishing cloth! These products really do work. E-Cloth brochure
Care should be taken when cleaning leaded units as they are glued to the face of the glass and can easily be damaged.
