How to Take Care of uPVC Windows and Doors?by Cora Windows uPVC Windows in India
We all know about the benefits of installing the uPVC windows, but how many of us are aware of how to take care of such windows is a big question mark. Though they outperform any windows made from other material and can be used for a long period of time, if proper care is not taken then these windows, may give out in the long run.
If the uPVC windows which you have installed in your house are losing their shine, then it is due to the lack of care that the uPVC window has suffered for which it has reached this stage. Reading this article will give you a good idea of how to take care of such windows.
If the windows are losing their color, then it is useless to paint them with another color. It is better to use the same color. Using another variant of color does not look good and also takes away the shine from the window. A soft bristle brush or a soft sponge should be used in order to color it. If gloss is applied then it is to be taken care that the excess of the material that is spread in other parts of the window is wiped off with a towel.
The windows are easily subjected to scratches. Once they have scratches, it is very difficult to remove them as it involves a lot of expenditure to purchase a cleaning agent that helps to fix the scratches. Small scratches can be easily repaired with the help of uPVC repair kits that are easily available in the market. Soft linen cloth is to be used while repairing such scratches.
Whether it is the hinges, door lock or the doors, if you are cleaning a specific part, then it is necessary to remove each one of them and clean them individually. This is mainly done so that the uPVC material does not lose its weather-resistant property.
A question that arises in mind is that what solution is to be used in cleaning the uPVC doors and windows? Though many cleaning agents are available in the market, one can also prepare a cleaning solution at home and clean them which are cost effective and easy to prepare. This solution is a combination of white wine vinegar and hot water. Once the mixture is prepared it can be taken either in a bottle or in a sprayer and sprayed across all those areas that need to be cleaned. The reason for using hot water is that it can easily remove the stains thereby making them less sticky whereas the white vinegar can easily remove away any dirt with one swipe of a cloth.
All the things that we use in our lives remain with us for a long time if we take proper care of them; the same logic is applicable even in the case of uPVC doors and windows. If they are properly taken care of then they can be used for a long time.
