Maintenance Tips

Callisto uPVC windows and doors require minimal maintenance, however to ensure that your new windows and doors retain their pristine appearance you should bear the following tips in mind.

Cleaning

One of the major benefits of uPVC Doors is that they're virtually maintenance free. uPVC is an extremely hard-wearing material which never rots, flakes or needs painting. In fact to keep your uPVC doors in perfect condition all you need to do is give them an occasional wipe down with a damp cloth and some soapy water.

Abrasive cleaners and dry cleaning with a duster should be avoided. Cleaning solutions and polishes that contain solvents or thinners should not be used as they can damage the frames and seals.

Ventilation

uPVC windows are designed to close very tightly and conserve energy and will, under normal circumstances, prevent condensation.

However, where humidity levels are high, condensation may occur on cold surfaces. This can easily be solved with correct ventilation. Windows should be opened on a daily basis sufficiently frequently to allow the moist air out and fresh air in. Your new windows will also be fitted with trickle vents which aid ventilation.

 

Handles and Hinges

All moving parts of fittings should be lightly oiled once or twice a year to ensure that your uPVC windows will always open smoothly.
