How to Clean uPVC Windows and Doors

How to Clean the Inside of your uPVC Window Frames


First start by cleaning the inside of the frame and hinges.

Open the window to the point of resistance

Use a vacuum cleaner to suck up any build-up of dust out of the hinges.

Use a vacuum  cleaner with a soft brush (unused paint brushes are great)  to go around the frame and to get in all the corners.

Use a soft cloth and warm water with a mild soap solution to clean inside the uPVC window frames.

Keep the hinges lubricated with a few drops of multi-purpose oil.


How to Clean your uPVC Window Frames

To avoid any discolouration or damage caused through over-vigorous cleaning trying to get rid of stubborn stains or marks, a regular wash with warm soapy water will keep your white uPVC window frames in the best condition.

Use a soft brush or soft cloth to brush off any loose dirt.

Make a warm water soapy solution with a squirt of washing-up liquid or a dedicated liquid window cleaner in a bottle (not the spray type).

Use a soft cloth and the soap solution to wash down the frames and windowpane.

DO NOT use a scouring pad, wire wool or sponge with a scouring surface.

The secret to getting crystal clear windows is to use a quality soft blade.

Start at one side and  sweep from side-to-side to the bottom or start at one side and swipe from top to bottom and then use your fingers or a cloth to wipe excess water off the squeegee before the next swipe.

To get a real sparkle finish you can use a specific window cleaning spray with a soft cloth and then rub down with kitchen roll or old newspaper. But DON’T spray this on the frames.

Use a soft cloth to apply to the windows and then use old newspaper to rub in a circular motion to dry to a sparkly finish.

Quick Tip

Twice a year go around your property and spray silicone oil into your multi point lock. Start at the top of the door and spray into the first lock/hook and work your way down. As you do this gently lift the handle up and down, wipe down the length of the lock to get rid of any excess oil and be mindful that some may drip on the floor so please take precautions.

Repeat this action to all your doors and windows. take extra care with second story windows. There should be no need to hang out your window!

By “self servicing” your doors and windows you can help extend the life of your locks and help to delay replacing parts.
