1. Use a gentle soap, warm water, and a soft cloth

 

You do not have to use a tough detergent soap and a scrub that might even create marks to clean your windows. No matter how dirty they look, you might actually only need warm water with soap to help dissolve the dirt and a cloth to help further clean the windows. Wipe in circular motions because it can clean a lot better. Do this in all your windows and wash them down with water afterwards. Don’t forget to clean the window sill.

 

2. Vinegar is a great tool for heavy stains

 

If you think rain has done major damages that simply cannot be remedied with just soap and water, you can add vinegar to the mixture. Not only will it help remove and dissolve stains on your window glass, it will also disinfect it without being too harsh on your uPVC frames window.

 

3. Check them for leaks and cracks

 

After cleaning your windows, it would be best to have them checked for any cracks and possible leaks. Your window will have reduced energy efficiency and increase heat loss once a leak or crack is found. If you do find a crack, you might start experiencing condensation problems. Prevent this from happening through early detection and cure. Have them fixed by professionals to be sure.

 

Double glazed windows are known for their great energy efficiency and capacity to reduce heat loss for any home. Because of this, they are highly preferred by the Government and are now being offered as an option included in the Green Deal.

 

Double glazing is generally offered with a guarantee but despite that, they should still be maintained. Its low maintenance feature does not assure that you could leave it out without any care. Keep these things in mind when cleaning your windows.
