UPVC doors are a popular choice for many homeowners as they are strong, durable, and offer great insulation. However, like most things in life, cleaning them is not always easy. This blog post will help you clean your uPVC doors so that they look as good as new!
What’ll you need to clean with
- A bucket or container to fill with warm water and washing-up liquid.
- Mold killing spray (if your uPVC door is moldy).
- Soft cloths.
- Dishwashing gloves if you want to avoid getting stains on clothes from the dirty water (optional)
Get started! Put a small amount of washing-up liquid into the bucket. Fill it up with enough warm water to cover your hands and then pour in a small amount of mold-killing spray if necessary. Put on dishwashing gloves or use the cloths so that you avoid getting stains on clothes from dirty water.
Wet the first side panel by spraying all over, then start scrubbing with the cloth, using a circular motion, and always trying to keep things wet. You will need to rinse off your gloved hands before moving onto the next panel or section of the door as it can get messy!
Continue this process until all panels are clean and dry them by wiping them over again with a soft, lint-free cloth.
Once the door has been cleaned, use a cloth or paper towel to clean any dirt off of the ground around it.
Then rinse your dirty water container with fresh tap water in case traces of detergent are left on its surface and allow your uPVC doors to dry naturally for 24 hours before using them again.
Cleaning the door handle
Touching your door handle regularly means that it can be a host for unwanted germs.
For a uPVC door, it is easy to keep the UPVC door handles clean with little effort. You want to rinse off the door handle with an antibacterial solution. Any household cleaning product with a similar chemical agent should be suitable for this task. One important tool for this job is a spray bottle.
One of the best ways to keep your door clean is by focusing on the handle instead of only the frame. By touching it more often, the handle becomes dirtier faster than other parts of your door because people shake their hands over them after coming into contact with public spaces like escalators and grocery stores.
After completing all of these steps, your uPVC door should be looking as good as new.
UPVC doors are beautiful, but they can become dirty over time. Fortunately, cleaning them is not too difficult and doesn’t require a lot of expensive products. We hope you enjoyed our suggestions that will leave it looking like new!
