As mentioned in a recent blog WeatherMaster Windows are virtually maintenance free. We suggest cleaning them every six months. Just like anything else in your home, keeping your windows clean will preserve their life and luxurious look.
The process for cleaning your vinyl WeatherMaster windows is quite easy and we’ve listed user friendly steps in this blog. As you continue to read, should you feel the need for further clarification please feel free to ask us for more information.
WHAT YOU’LL NEED:
- 1 Microfiber Cloth, 1 Cotton Cloth
- Spray Bottle
- Pure Silicone Spray or Pledge Furniture Polish
- Cleaning Solution (We highly recommend Sunspace Vinyl Cleaner because it cleans and conditions your vinyl window. Mild soap & water work as well. Do not use products containing abrasives, ammonia, or other chemicals as they can damage the vinyl.)
Step 1: Start by removing each window panel for easy access. Starting with the bottom vent, raise or lower the panel to release interlock from adjoining panel. Grasp the top of the panel with your right hand. With both hands, slide panel to the left. Swing the panel out from the right side of the window frame. See demonstration below for how to properly remove each panel.
Step 2: Vacuum window frame to remove leaves, dust and dirt.
Step 3: Wipe the remaining dirt away. Using your Sunspace cleaning solution and a microfiber cloth, gently clean each frame and window panel.
Step 4: Spray a small amount on each side of the 2 vertical tracks, wiping with the cloth to clean.
If you are finding the vents to be somewhat difficult to operate, a very small dash of the Silicone Spray or Pledge Furniture Polish can be added to the track for lubrication. A light, quick, dash or spray is usually all you need. CAUTION do not over-lubricate, or the panels will not stay in place and this is difficult to reverse.
Step 5: Reverse step 1 and replace each window panel, snapping each one back into place. Start with the panel closest to the screen and be sure to overlap each additional panel as you put them back into place.
Timing plays a role in your window cleaning as well. It is best to clean your windows on a warm dry day.
