How to Care for and Maintain Your Acoustic Glass
If you’ve recently had acoustic glass installed in your home, there are certain things you need to consider when caring for and maintaining your windows. Simply carrying out regular maintenance and quick cleans is all you need to do to keep your windows beautiful and lasting for years to come.
To give you a helping hand, I’ve written out my top tips to maintain your acoustic glass and caring for your windows below.
Keeping the Windows Clean
One of the best ways to maintain your windows is to keep them clean. And it’s a simple and effective way to care for acoustic glass, too. For a full explanation on how to clean your windows effectively, click here.
I would advise that you do not use abrasive chemicals as these can damage the frame. Instead, I would suggest using a mild soap and rinsing with clean water. Always ensure you dry your windows thoroughly after cleaning – especially if they have timber frames, to prevent any potential rot.
Treat Cracks in the Frames
Timber window frames can warp, peel, and crack over time. However, here at Sash Windows London Ltd we provide company guarantees protecting your windows against ageing. All timber is treated to prevent this issue, however if you’ve had your windows for a long-time, cracks in the frames do need to be treated and you can do this by covering them with paint or stain as soon as possible.
Alternatively, you can give us a call and our sash window specialists will replace your windows with brand new frames.
Keep Door Tracks Well-Lubricated
If you’ve had acoustic glass fitted in your bifold doors, it is important you keep the tracks well-lubricated. This includes locks! Keeping your doors lubricated helps them manoeuvre smoothly, reducing the strain on the glazing and the likelihood of damaging the door itself with jagged movements.
Prevent Grime Build-up
Bifold doors and sash windows can become dirty over time from dust and debris. To prevent the build-up of grime that can affect the performance of your door or window, regularly dust the frames and vacuum to reduce problems. This will help significantly in the prevention of grime build-up and will keep your windows clean and working for longer.
Ventilate Your Home Effectively
Condensation is a problem for many homeowners and while it can be a sign that the glass has become compromised, if your windows are new and can be resolved easily through ventilation.
When you’re cooking or running a hot shower, be sure to open your windows and turn on any fans in the room. This will help reduce the effects of condensation and protect your windows against the damaging problems of condensation that settles on and around the frames.
Simply ventilating the rooms in your home by opening the windows can reduce this problem significantly. What’s more, you can also wipe the window frames down with a cloth to dry any excess moisture from the timber. For further advice on how to prevent condensation, check out my previous article here.
