What is the best way to clean your Aluminium Doors?
Aluminium doors are an excellent addition to any home, providing a modern and sleek look to your property. Its low maintenance and durability make it a popular choice for luxury aluminium folding doors, sliding doors, korniche roof lanterns, windows and internal screens. However, even the most durable materials require cleaning and care to maintain their shine and longevity.
At BM Bi Folding Doors, we want to ensure that your aluminium products always look their best. That’s why we’ve put together this guide on the best way to clean your aluminium doors and windows. But before we dive into the details, we need to issue a disclaimer: we do not advise cleaning the outside of your upper floor products unless you have the appropriate training and safety equipment. Your safety is our top priority, so please take care when cleaning your aluminium doors & windows.
Firstly, it’s important to note that you don’t want to damage the finish on your aluminium doors & windows, so it’s essential to be gentle and avoid harsh chemicals. The best way to clean your aluminium frames is to prepare warm water with a tablespoon of washing up liquid. You don’t want to make this soapy as this is what will cause streaks.
Next, use a soft sponge or microfiber cloth dipped in your warm water and soap solution to gently wash down your frames. Don’t apply too much pressure, as these products have been designed to be easily cleaned. Be sure to clean the corners and crevices of your products, as this is where dirt and grime will build up. The hinges and tracks of your bifold patio doors should be wiped clean first and kept dust-free to ensure they open and close smoothly.
Once you have finished washing down your frames, make sure to dry them thoroughly. A little spray of elbow grease on a soft cloth will make them perfect! To keep your aluminium frames in their pristine condition, clean them around once every 3-4 months. This will keep them looking fresh as the seasons change and reduce the amount of dirt you will have to clean next time.
