Aluminum frames, especially the structural frames of aluminium windows, are not well known for their easy cleaning. They seek expert help or outsource the task to others, thus, resulting in unnecessary expenses. Certain tips can be followed, however, to rub off dirt and stains from aluminium furnishings. They include:

  • Spray water with a hose on the frames of your aluminium doors and windows. This will ensure much of the loose dirt being washed away
  • Aluminium windows and doors can be cleaned with warm water or mild detergent dissolved in water. You may also opt for a special aluminium cleaner or use detergent powder used in households for washing laundry.

You may consider using a sponge or a non-abrasive cloth to scrub aluminium windows that have lost their sheen due to dirt and rough weather. Scrubbing thoroughly and smoothly will help you get rid of any lingering dirt or grime. Since, dirt mostly accumulates in the corners of hinges, ridges, latches and window joints, you may try cleaning the same using a brush with soft bristles;

To remove any leftover residue or detergent particles, wash the aluminium doors and windows rigorously with clean water after cleaning them with detergent and brush;

Washing alone is not enough. A soft fabric should be used to dry the aluminum frames from top to bottom.

Make sure the locking system is lubricated to ensure smooth operation

It is the locks on your windows and doors that are most affected by dirt and soot in the air than the corners. Consider cleaning them too with water. However, it is important that you dry and polish them post the washing process. For effective use, consider putting in lubricating oil to the key and insert it in the lock multiple times to ensure that the lock has been oiled properly and there is no water droplets leftover in it. Using lubricant is equivalent to polishing the lock and will ensure the much necessary smoothness.
