Care of New Vinyl Windows and Doors
Label and tape adhesive should be removed by alcohol-based cleaners on small glass areas only. After this is removed, thoroughly wet the glass and rinse with plain water. Glass can be cleaned with regular or ammonia-based glass cleaners. Vinyl products can be cleaned with a solution of mild soap and water. Use any non-abrasive cleaner for tough jobs. Do not use solvents, paint removers or sharp objects to clean your windows or patio doors. If mildew is a problem in your area, use an appropriate cleaner or mildew controller found in your local store. Painting or varnishing your window is not required and will void any warranty. The tracks of the double-hung and sliding windows are exposed to the outdoor elements. There are abrasive elements such as dirt, leaves, sand, grease, soot, etc. If these elements are not removed, they can be ground into the vinyl tracks when the windows are being opened or closed. Theses tracks can be cleaned with a small, stiff nylon brush, then wiped down with a soft cloth. If necessary, an occasional spray of silicone lubricant on the balance shoe track of a double-hung, and the tracks of a sliding window, will the operation without leaving an oily residue.
