While many people notice a dirty window or door, not many will notice the dirty hardware or dirty & blocked drainage systems that is so vital to its operation. Damage to the surface and working components of hardware is often caused by dirt, grime and airborne salt deposits. Regular, basic cleaning of these products can help you get the best out of the hardware.
All general hardware cleaning can be carried out with a simple solution of mild liquid detergent in warm water applied with a soft bristle brush. It is important to avoid hot liquids if possible and also any abrasive tools in the cleaning process. The surface should also be rinsed thoroughly with water once cleaned.
To clean most glass, simply wipe over the surface with a few drops of mentholated spirits on a damp cloth and then polish the surface dry with a lint free cloth (ensure cleaning cloths are free of any abrasive substances). Avoid causing extreme temperature changes as this may lead to thermal fracture of the glass (do not direct hot or cold water onto glass).
Some glass types, particularly Low-E varieties, may have special cleaning instructions. In these cases, always follow the manufacturers’ recommended instructions to avoid any damage to the glass surface.
This information is offered as a general guide only. Specific advice on the cleaning of glass should always be sought from the glass manufacturer or professional window cleaner before any glass cleaning is undertaken.
