Undeniably, double-glazed uPVC villa windows literally “double” the villa’s aesthetics. Villas typically located in quieter, more residential neighbourhoods away from the hustle and bustle of city life have their own problems with thin air-dust and require regular upkeep.

Featuring two panes separated by a spacer-bar filled with inert gas or creating a vacuum, double-glazed windows minimise heat transfer, keeping interiors cool and comfortable. This reduces reliance on air conditioning, lowers energy bills, and creates a more sustainable living environment.

Here are a few tips on how to clean and take care of your double-glazed windows for better performance.

Window crevices can accumulate the specks of dust hampering the way these are meant to be performed. As these double-glazed uPVC windows are designed specifically for villas, these feature airtight sealing, multiple chambered profiles, and multiple lock points. They prevent air-conditioned air from escaping and ensure no hot air enters, maintaining a comfortable indoor environment. With improper cleaning or dust settling the edges, these gaps can harm the basic functionality. 

Soapy water clears dirt, dust, bird droppings or any spots on both glass and the corners. But if the windows have any roller issues or cracks, don’t spray water or any cleaning lubricants as it can damage the window functionality as a whole.

Even with the naked eye, one can inspect damaged seals and to prevent drafts and maintain energy efficiency. Depending on the type of sealant or gasket you’re using, apply it evenly along the edges of the window frame. If using sealant, insert the tube into a sealant gun and apply a continuous bead of sealant around the perimeter of the frame.

By following these steps, you can effectively fix damaged seals in double-glazed uPVC windows and restore their efficiency and appearance. If you’re unsure about tackling the repair yourself, consider contacting a professional window repair service for assistance.
