    Aluminium windows are taking homes by storm, and for good reason. They are strong, lightweight and require virtually no maintenance. But that doesn’t mean you can get away with neglecting it. Aluminium window manufacturers have brought you a great bit of material, and this is how easy it is for you to keep it clean.

    1. Give it a good dusting

    The first step in any good cleaning regimen is to start with a thorough dusting. Dust builds up on the frames and surroundings even when they are used frequently, and especially when your windows are open you can end up with a lot of dust and sand blowing in.

    Take either a standard feather duster or a slightly damp washcloth and wipe them over the surface of your aluminium window frames. Keep this up all around until all of the dust is clearly removed.

    2. Wipe it down

    Now that your windows are dusted they are ready for the main event. Get your detergent mixture ready, or even head over to your aluminium window suppliers for some special aluminium cleaner. The more specialised the cleaner, the more effective it will be. You can put your mixture into a spray bottle or simply in a bucket.

    With your cleaning mixture ready, either spray or wipe it over your window frames. Leave it to settle for between one and three minutes, then use a damp cloth to wipe off the mixture and all the dirt with it. From there all you need to do is wipe it again with a dry cloth – or newspaper even – and your frames will be perfectly clean and dry. Just like that!

    3. Don’t forget the tracks

    We’ve enjoyed the wonder that aluminium window manufacturers brought us with sliding doors and windows, but have you ever looked at the amount of gunk that builds up in the tracks? Sliding window tracks are one of the spots that build up the most dirt, and get cleaned the least.

    All you need to clean your tracks is a toothbrush, white vinegar, baking soda and some paper towel. Open the window all the way and drop some baking powder over the dirt, and pour a little bit of vinegar over the baking soda. Leave it to fizz for a few minutes to loosen up the dirt, and then wipe it up with the paper towel. If there is any stubborn grime left just wipe it with a damp cloth, and use a butter knife wrapped in some damp cloth to get into the corners. Then you just dry it off and viola! Your tracks are squeaky-clean again.

    If anything goes wrong while cleaning or you just want to make sure you’re using the correct tools and cleaning agents, contact a reputable aluminium window supplier. They know their work and will have you spotless in no time.
