Care of your Restorations windows.

To clean Restorations Windows with typical glass, simply use a glass cleaner and a soft cloth.

  • Vacuum dirt from sill and track areas before washing.
  • Rinse completely with clear water and wipe dry.
  • Avoid abrasive or caustic cleaners or solvents that might cause permanent damage to the frame finish.
  • As with glass, a mild, nonabrasive soap or detergent is usually safest for most dirt and stain removal. Always test cleaners in an inconspicuous area first.
  • Check to ensure that drainage or weepholes are always clear of dirt or obstructions—both inside and outside the window or door in the bottom of the frame. Note: If the window is “stacked,” there may be weepholes between units.

  • Moving hardware parts, tracks and rollers should be lubricated periodically in accordance with the manufacturer’s maintenance instructions. In saltair environments this may need to be done more frequently. Consult your manufacturer’s warranty for specific details.
  • Inspect your product regularly according to manufacturer’s recommendation. Repair or replace broken, worn or damaged parts. Poor performing components can decrease security or energy efficiency. Some examples are:
    • Cracks, dents or marred surfaces
    • Moisture or fogging between glass panes
    • Weatherstripping and caulking that is missing, cracked or damaged should be replaced
  • Rolling screen doors may be adjusted to run smoothly. Use a screwdriver—often in all four corners—to make adjustment. You may also adjust the lock strike placement by loosening screw fasteners, moving the strike plate and retightening to check for proper lock operation.

Glass Cleaning Tips

  • Never use a razor blade, putty knife, steel wool, abrasive pad or anything that may scratch the glass surface.
  • Never use a pressure washer or high-pressure sprayer to wash or rinse windows, doors or skylights as this can dislodge seals and gaskets and damage frame components.
  • Clean glass with a vinegar-based cleaner or mixture of a mild soap or detergent and water. Rinse completely with clear water, then wipe dry with a soft cloth or a squeegee to help avoid water spots. Always test cleaners in an inconspicuous area first.
  • Avoid washing glass in direct sunlight to reduce streaking of the glass.
  • Avoid abrasive, petroleum-based or caustic cleaners as they may cause damage to the finish or the glass.
  • When painting, staining or finishing sash or frame components adjacent to glass surfaces the use of masking tape on the glass is recommended to protect it from splatter or overcoat that may require excessive clean-up.
  • Clean screens by gently vacuuming with a brush attachment. Or, remove for cleaning and gently vacuum or wash on a flat, clean surface with mild soap and water and a soft brush. Rinse, wipe or air dry and reinstall.
