Cleaning the Window Frames

A simple way of cleaning the window frames is wiping them down with a damp cloth and soapy water, ensuring that they look as good as new. To clean the frame, mix a combination of warm water and soap, although washing up liquid is a suitable alternative. Next, put a cloth in water but ensure it is not soaking wet. Finally, wipe the frame carefully so it doesn’t get damaged easily.

Make sure the window dries off and wipe it with a clean towel to get rid of any soap. After doing this, dry it with a kitchen towel or a clean cloth. These simple steps will make sure it looks ideal all year round.

Cleaning Mould From uPVC Frames

Another common issue with uPVC frame is the mould and mildew that builds up over time. Mould on windows causes a dirty and unsightly appearance in your home. If it is left untreated, this could make it harder to get rid of, taking up more of your time.

Thankfully, cleaning the uPVC window is easy to do but it requires regular maintenance. Avoid using anything abrasive as this will cause further damage to your windows. Use a scourer to scrub the mould off clearly. After you have got the tough bits of mould off, mix water, a uPVC cleaner, or soap in a bucket which forms your solution.

Finally, use a sponge or a design to thoroughly wipe it clean. It is important to scrub the window gently to make sure all the mould is wiped clear. Finally, dry it with a clean towel.

For stubborn stains, spray the solution around 3-4 times on the surface and the mould will be cleaned instantly.
