Winterglaze Care & Maintenance

Caring for your Winterglaze product or joinery

With the installation of Winterglaze retrofit double glazed and/or secondary glazed windows you will enjoy  increased interior warmth in winter and a reduction in noise.  

Simple maintenance of your windows will ensure you enjoy many years of increased comfort.

MAINTENANCE 

In general anodised/powder coated aluminium should be cleaned every three months in urban areas and every six months in rural areas.  In industrial and marine environments (within 1km of the sea), monthly cold water washing cleaning, as well as six monthly warm water detergent washes are recommended.Regular cleaning also gives you a chance to inspect the windows for any problems that need fixing.
 

CLEANING

1 - Carefully remove any loose deposits with warm water and a mild soap detergent.  Start cleaning from the top of the building, cleaning downwards.
2 - Rinse with clean water and dry the glass with a clean and grit-free cloth or paper towel, remembering that ‘Wet glass is dirty glass’.
3 - Ensure that all water and cleaning solution residue is dried from window sealants, gaskets and frames to avoid water spots.
 

DO check frame drainage to ensure no water is trapped in the window rebate.
DO NOT let any solvents come in contact with edge laminate interlayer or unit sealant on IGU (double glazed) units.
