Double Glazing / Replacement Windows Maintenance

General advice for all makes and types.

Do not use oil to lubricate squeaky hinges (or any nylon moving parts), use a furniture aerosol wax spray instead, which contains silicone.
Once a year clean and light oil visible moving metal parts, particularly door locks and 'friction stay' window hinges.
Never allow the use of washing up liquid in the water when your windows are cleaned - it attacks and degrades the seals.
Use a generous squirt of cream cleanser in warm water to spring clean white PVC-U, (no abrasives should be used on woodgrain).
Keep sliding Patio Door tracks brushed clean of mud, grit and dust. Do not lubricate the track.
Make sure there is a key in each room for undoing security-locking windows in the event of an emergency.

Tip on cleaning silver aluminium: use 'Solvol Autosol' aluminium polish, from motor accessory shops.

Tip on repairing damaged white aluminium: I use 'Humbrol' white as a touch-up paint, it's just right.
