Clearview have been designing, manufacturing, delivering and installing aluminium doors and windows for over 10 years. In this time we have installed a huge number of doors to homes and businesses all over the North of England.
We recommend that all homeowners take time to care for their windows and doors. When the windows are properly cared for they will look better, and are less likely to develop issues in time.
Obviously cleaning your windows and doors is the first priority. The frames are easy to clean and can be regularly cleaned with normal washing up liquid, warm water and a soft sponge. Though you should be careful to avoid using any kind of solvent on the frame as it could be damaged.
How often you need to clean your windows and frames is largely dependent on where they are located and what type of property they are attached to. As a rough guide we have drawn up the below:
· Normal Environment: Clean and check every 12 months
· Marine Environment: Clean and check every 3 months
· Industrial Environment: Clean and check every 3 months
· Industrial & Marine Environment: Clean and check every 3 months
· Swimming & Leisure Pools: Clean and check every 6 months
The sliding track upon which the door runs also needs cleaning occasionally to ensure smooth running. Simply use a toothbrush, or another small brush, to clear out dust and debris which would otherwise create wear and tear. You can also use a vacuum cleaner to remove light dust.
Please note that if you are attempting to clean the locking mechanism you are careful not to damage it. The lock should always operate smoothly and easily, if at any point you feel you have to force it then stop. A lock that has been broken via force will not be covered.
Clearview do provide a professional cleaning service, so if at any point you feel you need assistance just give us a call on 0800 1357167.
