A job we all keep putting off, but we know we need to get our heads round one day is deep cleaning your window and door frames.
Given that many people still have some spare time at home due to the lockdown suggested by the Government, it could be an idea to knuckle down and deep clean those white uPVC window and door frames.
Remember to be safe if you choose to tackle the upstairs windows. Always have someone at the foot of the ladder to hold it.
The way we recommend the job is carried out is to firstly brush off any debris on the window with a soft brush, in particular the groove at the bottom of the frame, which is a favourite hiding place for creepy crawlers. Or you could use a hosepipe to blast away the debris.
Always use something to stand on to reach the high windows and never over stretch.
Then, using a damp soft cloth and a cream cleaner, recommended by us is a premium cream cleaner with a good amount of coarseness in the mixture, used by the trade, this will help get down into the uPVC to release the grim. This may take two operations with a wash off with clean warm water (without soap) in between.
We stock the cleaner on our Upvc Spares 4 Repairs website: Gardinia Siroflex SX UPVC Frame Cream Cleaner Litre Bottle UPVC Restorer
Using this followed by a wash with warm soapy water to bring the frames back to life, its quite satisfying to stand back and admire a good job well done.
To get the glass to sparkle again to finish the job properly you could use our: Gardinia Siroflex SX Glass Cleaner Litre Bottle Upvc Double Glazing which is also available on our Upvc Spares 4 Repairs website
The end result will be a job well done with the window frames looking as good as the day the windows were fitted.
