In this article, we'll provide you with all the information you need to keep your aluminium windows and doors in top condition, including the costs. Learn how to clean them properly, the dos and don'ts, and how often you should give your aluminium double glazing some much-needed TLC.

Cleaning aluminium windows and doors is a simple task, but it does require some careful consideration to avoid damaging the frames. Whether your frames are powder coated or unpainted, our gentle cleaning method will ensure their longevity without scratching or scouring. Get ready to restore the lustrous finish of your windows and doors.

Follow these key steps for effective cleaning:

Prepare a warm, soapy water solution. Avoid chemicals that can damage the paint.
Use a soft sponge or microfiber cloth dipped in the soapy water to wash down your frames.
Pay attention to corners, crevices, hinges, and tracks where dirt tends to accumulate. Keep them free from debris and dust.
Once you're done washing, make sure to thoroughly dry the frames with a soft cloth for a shiny finish.
