Simonton vinyl windows and patio doors are virtually maintenance free and easy to clean. Keeping vinyl windows clean and cared for doesn’t take long. And by doing so, it helps keep your windows and doors beautiful and in top working order.

Below are tips and expert advice for performing simple, routine care to make the most of your investment.

  1. Wash using mild detergent (if necessary) and a soft cloth or ordinary soft bristle brush. Do not clean the windows or doors with a high-pressure washer. The extreme spray pressure could crack or destroy the caulking around the window or door.
  2. For difficult to remove dirt and stains use the readily available household cleaners listed on the chart. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions on use of the cleaners.
  3. In some cases, you may wish to use a mildly abrasive cleanser such as Soft Scrub®, but the use of any abrasive material could scratch the surface of the glass and window or doorframe.
  4. DO NOT USE liquid grease remover, strong soaps or detergents containing organic solvents, nail polish remover, furniture polish or cleaners containing chlorine bleach. These items could affect the surface appearance of the vinyl.
