PVCu Window and Door Maintenance
Here to help you look after your investment


  • Clean the glass regularly with a good quality liquid spray glass cleaner
  • Frequently wash down the PVCu profiles with warm soapy water and wipe dry
  • Only use cleaning materials which do not impair anti-corrosion properties of the surface coatings
  • Use non abrasive cream cleaner for isolated stubborn stains on white PVCu only
  • Apply with a damp cloth using minimal pressure
  • Ensure drainage slots are unblocked and free from dirt and debris
  • Keep all tracks clear of dust and debris in order to reduce the wear on sliding parts
  • Check all fire escapes’ hardware annually for wear and tear and a consistent fit
  • Ensure that all conservatory gutters and their outlets are kept clear of leaves and debris to ensure unobstructed flow
  • All moving mechanical parts are lubricated - hinges, locks and keep plates will benefit from a small application of light oil at least once a year
  • Replace damaged or worn parts with original Duraflex parts

Do not

  • Use any type of bleach, solvent (e.g. white spirit, mentholated spirits, nail varnish  remover) or adhesives.
  • Use abrasives or brass cleaner on furniture: handles, door knockers, letter plates
  • Use glass cleaner on the PVCu profile
  • Use a ladder when cleaning your conservatory roof, always use a crawler board to evenly distribute your weight

  • Use excessive pressure when cleaning PVCu
  • Use high pressure or steam cleaners
  • Use any abrasive papers, such as sandpaper
  • Use excessive loads on the windows and doors
