Maintenance for WINDOWS & DOORS

– Bi-yearly regular cleaning of windows and doors will keep them operating and looking like new.

– Keep glass in windows and doors clean by using a dish soap/water solution applied with an absorbent cloth or sponge, and removing with a squeegee.  Use glass cleaner and paper towel sparingly.

– Wash screens yearly to remove dust/pollen using a mild dish soap solution applied with a soft brush or sponge, and rinse with clean water.

– For optimal window and sliding door operation, clean out window tracks to remove dust/pollen/dirt debris.  Vacuuming and washing out tracks will allow for sashes to slide smoother.

– Wash window and vinyl door frames using a dish soap/water solution.

– Clean exterior aluminum trims and flashings with a dish soap solution and soft cloth/brush, rinsing with clean water.

– Clean steel doors with a damp cloth.  If necessary, use a mild dish soap solution.  DO NOT USE harsh cleaning chemicals or scouring pads on any painted surfaces.

– Factory stained fiberglass doors will require re-application of a protective clear top coat.  The frequency will depend on the sun/weather exposure on the door.

– Door hinges, patio door wheels or casement hardware may require lubrication at times.  Clean well and only apply silicone spray.

Maintenance for SIDING & EAVESTROUGH

– Yearly cleaning of your exterior siding and trims will prevent dirt and pollen build-up, and any potential staining.

– If the vinyl siding you are cleaning as has brick below it, it’s important to wet the brick first to prevent staining.

– Clean vinyl siding with a mild dish soap solution and a car wash brush, and rinse with clean water.  Please use caution if you decide to use a pressure washer.

– Aluminum eavestrough, fascia, soffits and trims should only be cleaned with a dish soap solution and soft cloth/brush, rinsing with clean water.

– Yearly cleaning of eavestrough and downpipes will keep water running and prevent overflow from happening.

– Aluminum railings and columns should only be cleaned with a dish soap solution and soft cloth/brush, rinsing with clean water.
