Maintenance of an aluminium window is an easy job.
You have more important things to be doing than frequently attending to window maintenance, so you will be happy to know that aluminium windows need minimal upkeep.
Take off any hand jewellery before you clean the glazed surface of the window so that you don’t accidentally scratch it, using a mix of soap and water to remove any dirt and grime. A soft cloth and household glass cleaner will restore a shine to the glazing. Avoid applying too much pressure as you clean the glass if the window contains Georgian bars or leaded lights so that they don’t become dislodged.
Clean the aluminium window frames every 3 months with soap and water, and half-yearly, cleanse the external frame with a non-abrasive proprietary cleaner.
Please, watch yourself when cleaning the windows whilst they’re open so that you don’t get your hands caught in any of the hardware’s sharp corners or edges.
After they’ve been cleaned with the soap/water solution, use the soft cloth to buff the window handles up.
Once a year, apply oil or light grease to the lock and keeps so that they don’t stick, and add a thin film of grease to the hinges, which will ensure they continue moving smoothly.
