Alton Windows - Window Care
Now that you have invested in your home with Alton Windows and Doors, proper window care is essential. Routine cleaning and maintenance will keep your windows looking great and keep them working efficiently throughout all seasons.
Although most people only clean the glass portion of their windows, cleaning the frame is equally important in maintaining the appearance of your home. Your Alton window frames should be washed with a mild, non-abrasive soap and water in order to keep the frame finish in tact. Once all the dirt has been washed away, simply rinse with clean water and wipe dry. This simple task will keep your windows looking new.
Glass Cleaning Care
Certain Alton windows come with a special glass coating for superior performance. In order to maintain this level of performance proper maintenance is required. This type of glass should only be cleaned with a mild dish soap and water. Once the window is washed, rinse with clean water and wipe dry with a soft cloth. You should NEVER use a high pressure hose, any sort of blade or abrasive pad to clean the windows – this can destroy the finish.
Maintaining your Alton windows and doors will ensure ease of operation for their lifetime. It is important to periodically lubricate the window or door tracks and rollers as well as the hardware components. The weather stripping should be checked regularly to make sure that the seal is tight and an occasional vacuum of the window or door tracks will clear any dirt or debris which may block a clean seal.
All of these simple maintenance and cleaning steps will ensure that your Alton windows and doors will continue to perform to the highest standards throughout their lifetime.
