- WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO CLEAN MY VINYL WINDOWS? December 3, 2019
WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO CLEAN MY VINYL WINDOWS?
Vinyl windows are not glass windows and should not be cleaned as though they are glass windows. The biggest mistake homeowners make when cleaning vinyl windows is treating them like they’re glass windows and using cleaners with harsh chemicals like bleach to clean their vinyl windows.
When it’s time to clean your sunroom’s vinyl windows, skip the glass cleaner, bleach, ammonia, or any other harsh, chemical-based cleaners. These types of cleaners will break down the integrity of the vinyl. Stay away from abrasive cleaners and scrubbing pads that can scratch the surface of your vinyl windows, exposing them to further damage.
To properly clean your vinyl windows we recommend first removing your vinyl window panes and rinsing them off using your hose, but gently. A full pressure spray or power washer can damage the vinyl. (You can also hose them down in between cleanings if you want to freshen them up a little.) This will remove any loose dirt and help in preventing scratches during cleaning. Spray the vinyl with a vinyl window cleaner and wipe clean using a microfiber or lint free cloth. (We use Custom Window Systems Vinyl Window Coating, but any cleaner specifically for vinyl windows will work.) You can also use a mixture of 1/4 cup woolite and 1 gallon of water. Just make sure to rinse thoroughly with clean water after you wash with the mixture.
Clean both sides of the vinyl window and the aluminum or vinyl frame. Vacuum the dry track, and replace the panes.
Cleaning vinyl sunroom windows on a hot, sunny day can cause the cleaner or mixture to dry quickly, likely before you have a chance to wipe it off. For best results, wait for an overcast day so you can properly clean and shine the panes, ridding them almost completely of any residue.
