How to clean sunroom windows and walls

August 2, 2013

13-025Dreamspace enclosure vinyl windows and doors come closer to being maintenance-free than most exterior building products. They may become dirty just as does a freshly painted house, a new automobile, or any other product that is exposed to atmospheric conditions. With very little effort, you can keep your vinyl patio room window and door frames clean. In most cases, rainfall is sufficient to clean these products.

These instructions are based on a study conducted by the Vinyl Window and Door institute on the efficiency of cleaning products and their effects on the appearance of vinyl frames after two years of outdoor exposure.

REGULAR MAINTENANCE -Wash using soft cloth or soft bristle brush. -DO NOT wash sunroom with a high pressure spray. -Sometimes, you my want to use a mildly abrasive cleaner such as Soft Scrub, Ajax, Bon Ami, etc., but the use of any abrasive material could have a negative effect on the sunroom glass surface and the frames. -DO NOT use cleaners containing aggressive organic solvents such as chlorine bleach, liquid grease remover, strong soaps and detergents containing organic solvents, nail polish remover and furniture polish/cleaner because they could affect the surface appearance of the vinyl. -INSULATING SUNROOM GLASS: can be cleaned with any non-abrasive glass cleaner and soft cloth. -LOW EMISITY GLASS: our LOW-E sunroom glass packages can be cleaned with any non-abrasive glass and soft cloth. The LOW-E coating is applied to the inner surface of the patio enclosures insulating glass unit and cannot be scratched.
