Cleaning your conservatory

When cleaning a uPVC conservatory, never use an abrasive material, because it will scratch the surface of your conservatory, as well as removing the shine.
You can clean the glass of your conservatory with any type of glass cleaner. Try to use one that you have used before in order to enjoy guaranteed results.
For timber, simply wash it with clean warm water and leave it to dry. Apply another coat of microporous sealant on an annual basis in order to protect the frames from harsh weather elements. If you choose a top-quality sealant, the wood will be allowed to breathe.
Spray the locks and adjustments twice or three times a year with a silicone based-product or with some WD40. This will ensure that they are at their best.
In case you need to loosen or tighten the friction hinges for your windows, all you need to do is to open the window and insert a screwdriver in the head on the hinge. Turn slowly until the friction hinges are loose or tight enough for your needs.

Drainage is a very important part of maintaining your conservatory

For effective drainage, remember to clear the debris and leaves from the gutter. A good idea is to purchase a gutter guard to keep debris and leaves out for good.
After a heavy shower of rain, you might notice water at the bottom of your window drains or door. In this case, you have nothing to worry about. The water will drain or evaporate in a few days.
Never repaint your uPVC conservatory. It has been proven that uPVC conservatories do not require repainting because this material’s colour will never fade in time, even though they’re exposed to sunrays for a prolonged period of time.
Clean the surface of your conservatory on a yearly basis, if possible. This will help remove dust and insects that are the leading cause of growing algae and fungi.
