• Although vinyl windows are virtually maintenance-free, a minimal amount of maintenance and cleaning is required to keep them looking fresh and new. 

• Vinyl and glass surfaces should be cleaned using a mild detergent then rinsed with clean water and wiped dry with a soft cloth. Do not use any type of harsh or abrasive cleaning substances or abrasive pads and do not use a pressure washer ever to clean windows or doors. 

• To clean screens, simply remove them, hose them off with water and leave them to air dry. Do not use a pressure washer or any cleaning solvents on screens. 

• Drainage channels and sweep holes must be kept clear of dirt, bugs, snow and ice to allow for proper drainage to the outside. 

• Operating hardware generally requires no maintenance or lubrication, but in rare cases or conditions, lubrication may be required. A light silicone lubricant is recommended. Occasionally hardware may fail if it been damaged. In this case, contact your local window dealer for replacement parts.
