Cleanings and Maintaining Tips for Aluminium Doors and Windows

by Charles Julius Marketing Manager
As time passes, windows and doors tend to collect dirt and dust, even for the aluminium ones. However, aluminium frames are quite low in maintenance and also lasts longer compared to other materials. This is the reason they should be kept clean to avoid any damage or need for repair or replacement. Although, it is also important that you follow the right steps to clean your doors and windows.

So, if you are ready to clean your aluminium doors and windows then know these tips and tricks before you get going. However, if your aluminium windows are worn out and need window replacement services, call Accent Windows right away!

How to clean aluminium windows?
The method of cleaning your aluminium doors and windows depends on how old they are and their exact finish. While the aluminium frame that is new doesn’t need such tough clean as the older ones.

If you have aluminium windows powder coated then it will last long and won’t corrode easily. This also means it won’t require very frequent cleaning, saving your time and money. Such type of windows should be cleaned at least once in every 3-4 months. 

Follow these steps to clean your powder coated windows:

  • First, clean from the top to bottom using a clean cloth.
  • Make a soap water solution, dip a soft cloth and start the cleaning process.
  • Give a more intense cleaning action to the places with stubborn dirt or marks.
  • Also clean any hidden spots and hard to reach places like little nooks and crannies of windows.
  • After you are finished, dry them using a soft clean cloth.

When you want to clean older windows, the process is the same but it should be a little more intense and frequent. The lack of powder coat on older windows means that they are exposed to extreme weather conditions and prone to wear and tear. You may also find areas that need repair, so it is a good time to thoroughly inspect windows for any damage.

Follow these process for the non-finished aluminium windows:

  • Mix soap in warm water along with special aluminium cleaners.
  • Dip a clean cloth in the soapy solution and clean the frame thoroughly. 
  • Once you are done cleaning, buff the aluminium dry using another clean cloth.
  • For the aluminium frames that are exposed to rainwater, simply polish it with water and fine steel wool.

How to clean composite doors?

The process for cleaning the composite aluminium doors is the same as above. While for the external parts, start by hosing down with water to remove the dirt and dust.

After cleaning the door frames, add shine to it by polishing it using steel wool and lots of water. Keep in mind that the part of aluminium exposed to the weather can start to rust over time, making it difficult to clean. Consider professional aluminium cleaner for the frames that have an oxide buildup.

If you have discovered considerable dirt and damage while cleaning your doors then consider door replacement in Melbourne with the powder-coated ones, as they are easy to clean and maintain.
