How to clean your double glazed windows

In order to improve efficiency and regulate temperatures within your home, double glazed windows are a must. To ensure you continue reaping the benefits of double glazed windows via decreased energy bills, regular window maintenance will be necessary. General upkeep and gentle window cleaning will not only help to reverse the appearance of general wear and tear and the effects of the outside elements, it will also keep your windows looking as good as new for as long as possible.

The following tips will help keep your double glazing looking as good as new and performing as efficiently as it should. For further information about our double glazing services, contact our home improvement specialists on 01202 536 422.

In order to clean your double glazing effectively, you will need:

1) A soft fibred cloth

2) White vinegar to keep glass streaks to a minimum

3) A gentle glass cleaner or warm soapy water

Cleaning your double glazing

The very first step you need to take is removing any items of debris, such as leaves, and wipe the surface with a damp, soft cloth or sponge. Add white vinegar to the warm water and gently wipe on the glass to create a streak free, shining finish.

Using a soft cloth is of great importance to the condition of your windows, a material with abrasive fibres could potentially cause scratches on the surface of your windows – these are not only unsightly, but could cause larger issues further down the line.

To clean your window frames, use a vacuum cleaner with a gentle brush attachment to collect any dust or dirt that may have collected in the corners and edges. Wipe the area with a gentle cleanser or hot water. For wooden window frames, use a gentle polish to buff the surfaces to a pristine shine.
