As we are nicely progressing through April, you might have already started (or in some cases finished) your spring cleaning by now. However, one such element of your home you might have accidentally neglected is, of course, wooden windows. As a quality purveyor of timber windows in Derby, we have seen countless occurrences of timber windows where regular maintenance has been forgotten.
One of our most popular brands of products is our fantastic Accoya range. This range includes the world famous Accoya doors and windows. In this blog, we would like to shine a spotlight on the extremely durable Accoya windows.
As we have already mentioned, Accoya windows are extremely durable and of exceptional high quality. While their quality seems all but a given, ensuring they always look their best requires a carefully put together maintenance strategy.
So let’s look at ways to maintain your Accoya windows.
Don’t Neglect The Glass
When considering Accoya timber, many owners will forget about the glass on them. As such, you will want to clean the glass of your windows carefully, thoroughly and at regular intervals.
The most effective way to clean them is through a range of different cleaning methods and products. There are actually many home based methods which include creating a homemade solution mixing one part vinegar and one part warm water.
However, one of the most effective ways is through purchasing previously constructed cleaning products and utensils. Most of these items can be purchased at local shops or supermarkets in the UK.
You might want to start with a microfibre cloth or a window sponge. Out of the two you might want to consider the microfibre cloth as a priority. This is because microfibre cloths are absorbent allowing for excellent reusable purposes as well as the fact that they don’t leave scratches on the window.
Once you have the cleaning utensil at the ready, you will then want to identify your cleaning solution. As previously mentioned, you could have a homemade concoction of vinegar and water. But if you want a more reaffirmed approach, you can buy a ready solution from a shop.
Once you have both ready, you will then simply spray the cleaning solution on the window and use the sponge or cloth to wipe it off ensuring there are no streaks or lines left.
Polishing The Wood
Now the glass is taken care of, you can focus on the wood. Polishing or cleaning the wood might seem simple upon first glance but it can go wrong very quickly. You want to use washing up liquid to remove any dirt with a brush.
