Use non-alkaline detergent and warm water; apply to Aluminium / uPVC finishes using a soft cloth or sponge and nothing harsher than a bristle brush or nylon pad should be used. If in doubt, test the cleaner on an unobtrusive area first. Steel wool, strong acids and alkalis, and abrasive cleaners should never be used, The accumulation of atmospheric grime and pollution makes it necessary to clean the surface regularly to maintain its good appearance. it is recommended that cleaning is carried out once every six months.
It is quite wrong to assume that if cleaning is carried out less frequently than recommended, the surface of the aluminium or PVC-U can be restored with the occasional use of more aggressive cleaners. Such cleaners could damage the finish, the metal or PVC-U, the glazing sealing systems or even the glass and such a practice should be avoided.
