Care and Maintenance

Updated: Nov 24, 2020

Here at Andy Glass Windows we want you to get the most out of your new windows and doors. Our high-performance range is generally very low maintenance, however to lengthen its lifespan and keep it looking as good as new follow these simple 'Dos & Don'ts' to ensure continual optimum performance from your products.


  • Clean the glass regularly with a good quality liquid spray glass cleaner

  • Frequently wash down the uPVC profiles with warm soapy water and wipe dry

  • Only use cleaning materials which do not impair anti-corrosion properties of the surface coatings

  • Use cream cleaners for isolated stubborn stains on white uPVC only. Apply with a damp cloth using minimal pressure

  • Ensure drainage slots are un-blocked and free from dirt and debris

  • Keep all tracks clear of dust and debris in order to reduce wear and tear on sliding parts

  • Check all fire escapes’ hardware regularly for wear and tear and a consistent fit

  • Ensure conservatory gutters and their outlets are kept clear of leaves and debris to ensure unobstructed flow

  • All moving mechanical parts are lubricated – hinges, locks and keep plates will benefit from a small application of silicone based spray at least once a year.


  • Use any type of bleach, solvent (e.g. white spirit, methylated spirits, nail varnish remover) or adhesives

  • Use abrasives or brass cleaner on furniture: handles, door knockers, letter plates

  • Use glass cleaner on the uPVC profile

  • Use abrasive paste or cream cleaners on any uPVC profile

  • Use high pressure or steam cleaners

  • Use any abrasive papers, such as sandpaper

  • Use excessive loads on the windows and doors

  • Lean ladders against conservatory guttering

  • Paint the uPVC profile

  • Use any unspecified tools

  • Use abrasive or solvent-based cleaners on self-cleaning glass
