Window care by PVC Windows Australia
PVC Windows Australia has designed their windows and doors to be low maintenance, durable and long lasting. But in order to ensure this, customers must keep the profiles, gaskets and hardware clean. It is important to remember that the windows and doors cannot be cleaned with a dry cloth as this will cause scratching to the surface. The only paint that can be used on PVC Windows Australia windows and doors is Decoroc coated profiles.
Maintenance of the windows and doors is simple. A soft, damp sponge soaked in water and a non-abrasive household detergent is all that is required. Abrasive, corrosive, cetone solvent or aromatic solvents such as acetone, turpentine or petrol should never be used as this will damage the surface of the products and will not be able to perform to the standard. Difficult windows and doors can e cleaned with Decoclean, available through PVC Windows Australia.
The thermoplastic elastomer used to manufacture the gaskets and seals may lose flexibility but to avoid this, they should be coated with talcum powder once a year which will also increase their lifespan. Gaskets and seals should never come into contact with concentrated detergents. All hardware should be checked annually and lubricated as necessary. The tilt and turn mechanism may also need occasional adjusting.
