Ensure that no outdoor sprinklers are installed close to, or pointing at, aluminium windows or doors. Keep all aluminium parts dry as far as possible. When cleaning use non-abrasive cleaners or mild soapy water on frames. Use a mild soapy water or window-cleaning solution, and a soft sponge or cloth to clean glass surfaces. Dry with a soft cloth to ensure that all water is removed from glass, frames, hinges, sealant etc. to avoid damage.
Hardware components should be lubricated with a silicon spray with a straw applicator. Never use any chemicals, solvents, or abrasive cleaners on your aluminium frames. Never use a steel brush or any scrubbing or abrasive pads when cleaning your aluminium frames. Do not use a high-pressure cleaner or high pressure spray nozzle.
