The surface treatments on aluminum frames shield the window and protect it from corrosion. However, proper cleaning and lubrication of the mechanisms is necessary to increase its service life.
Tips for cleaning window frames
- First, remove stains and other debris that may have remained during the window installation process with lukewarm water and a soft cloth.
- Regularly clean the frames from dust with a damp soft cloth or sponge. The frequency of cleaning is related to the environment to which the building is exposed, i.e. whether it is industrial or seaside, where cleaning should be done more regularly.
- Avoid using high water pressure. Use plenty of water and a mild detergent, such as dishwashing detergent.
- Replace gaskets (elastic parts, brushes) when damaged.
Tips for lubricating mechanical parts
The lubrication of the mechanical parts of the frames helps in their maintenance and better operation, as it reduces the friction of the moving parts, both in the opening (e.g. locking mechanism) and sliding (roller, handle) systems.
In sliding frames, make sure that the sliding guides do not come into contact with dirt or various hard elements. Brushes should be kept clean, free of debris or glue. Regarding the openings, for excellent waterproofing and durability, pay attention to the rubbers and lubricate all the moving parts of the window with silicone spray once a year.
