Over time your door will naturally get a grimy covering of dirt, cobwebs and dead bugs, but fear not, we have some easy tricks for you to give your uPVC door a thorough clean and get into any hard to reach places!

To clean the glass and main panels in your uPVC or composite door, we recommend using warm, soapy water – simple, but effective.

Wash the door down with the warm, soapy water and a soft cloth or sponge. Micro-fibre cloths are fantastic as they remove stubborn dirt and prevent scratching or damaging the door. 

Avoid using bleaches or any cleaning materials that could scratch the door such as a scouring pad – they will damage the finish of the door and this will void your warranty.

Products to avoid:

  • Scouring pads
  • Methylated spirits
  • Bleach
  • White spirit
  • Iron wool

To remove the dirt and debris build up between the door frame, vacuum regularly with the brush attachment. It's really important to hoover your sliding patio doors regularly in the channel where the doors slide – dirt and debris will affect how smoothly they operate.

If you continue to clean your doors in this way regularly, they will stay looking like-new for years to come.
