Keeping your sliding doors in good condition is a must. But what is the best method?
Remove Loose Dirt
Remove any loose debris from the glass surface before adding any cleaning product to it. Instead of using a razor blade to maintain the glass on your sliding doors smooth, use a soft, dry cloth to do so.
Avoid Damaging Cleaning Solutions
Using cleaning products that contain harsh substances is discouraged. Renewal by Andersen Midwest recommends using a mixture of water and mild soap or white vinegar to clean your windows. Regular liquid window cleaners will also work in this situation.
Wash From Top to Bottom
For efficiency, wipe the glass in a circular motion and start from the top. This way, you won’t wet the dry cleaned areas as you wash your way to the bottom of the glass.
Dry Cleaned Areas Immediately
If you diligently keep them clean, you won’t be needing new replacement windows and doors so soon. To maximize efficiency, wipe the glass in a circular motion, beginning at the top of the window. As you wash your way down to the bottom of the glass, you won’t have to worry about wetting the dry-cleaned regions.
Vacuum the bottom track of your sliding glass doors to remove any dust that has accumulated there. This will ensure that your sliding glass doors operate smoothly. Once the loose dirt has been removed, disinfect the area with rubbing alcohol.
Lubricate the Tracks
Silicone spray can be used to lubricate the head track and wheels of the machine. Because it does not attract dirt, this lubricant is perfect for use in a variety of applications. When it comes to the bottom track, rubbing paraffin wax rather than spraying silicone can give better results.
