If you’ve chosen uPVC French doors then you’ve chosen one of the most durable, low maintenance options out there. And not only will you save money on your heating bills with heat not escaping, you’ll save money on the upkeep and maintenance of your French doors.
uPVC French Doors
UPVC French doors are generally installed when people opt to move from single glazing to double glazing to lower their energy costs and keep heat within their property. A large amount of heat can be lost through doors and windows so investing money to begin with in higher quality French doors with uPVC can save a lot of money in the long run.
uPVC doors are known for their low maintenance as unlike more traditional timer frames you won’t need to paint or varnish uPVC. Of course they can still get dirty and over time dust and dirt can get onto them, but they’re very easy to keep clean.
To keep the windows themselves clean you’ll want to invest in a good glass cleaner and just spray the cleaner across the glass and buff it out with a soft or leather cloth. It might take a bit more of a scrub to minimise smear marks but the result will be worth it. Remember to clean both sides of the glass though. In just a few seconds you’ll notice such a difference just by cleaning your glass.
When it comes to the outdoor window panes as they’re so low maintenance you don’t need much to keep them clean and simple washing-up liquid can do the trick at removing any stubborn dirt. Just combine a bit of liquid into a bowl of warm water and apply to your window panes with a soft washing-up sponge. Don’t use wire or harsher materials as these can scratch and damage the window panes as despite being durable it is still possible to damage them. once you’re happy with the results just use warm water to remove the soap. After you’re down you can towel dry the window panes to remove all excess liquid left behind. This is recommended to do every six months, or more often if your French doors get particularly dirty or are exposed to a lot of harsh weather conditions.
How to clean uPVC French Doors
While the inside window panes are unlikely to get anywhere near as dirty as the outside ones you can keep them clean with a similar method, but chances are you’ll just need to run a damp cloth over them and they’ll be good as new.
To ensure the locks and hinges are kept in optimal condition just apply a small amount of engineering oil to them every so often and this will prevent them from catching, squeaking or generally getting damaged.
