How To Clean Your EZE-Breeze Vinyl Windows
Vinyl is a strong, resilient material specially formulated to resist deterioration from the sun’s ultra-violet rays. With proper care and cleaning, these sliding panes will give you years of trouble-free service and prevent them from drying out or becoming brittle. Clean your Eze-Breeze sliding panels at least twice a year.
CAUTION: Remove rings, bracelets, watches or other objects that can puncture or cut the vinyl before cleaning.
WARNING: Do not use alcohol or ammonia based products, dishwashing detergents/soaps, products that contain abrasives, or other chemicals. Do not lubricate the main frame tracks or other components. Use of cleaning products and methods other than those specified below will damage the vinyl and void the warranty. Click here to read our article on Pur Clean method of cleaning your windows.
Step 1. With the vents in the closed position, raise the bottom panel approximately 1”, release the thumb latches and tilt the panel in. Rest the tilted panel on a chair or other support. Lower the remaining three panels to the bottom of the unit, raise the second panel approximately 1″, and tilt it in to rest on the bottom panel. Repeat until all remaining panels are tilted in. You may also completely remove panels to wash more freely and thoroughly.
Step 2. Brush or vacuum all areas of panel frame. Cleaning the main frame tracks and other metal parts with a soft cloth and clean water will keep the panels moving easily up and down. Avoid spraying wax or oil based lubricants as they will build up and attract dirt. Once dirt is removed, wash framing, tracks and sill with a soft cloth and one of the cleaners mentioned below.
Step 3. Starting with the top panel that is facing up, use a soft, lint free cloth and rinse it with clean water. Apply a cleaning solution of Woolite® or Murphy Oil Soap® and warm water (one cap-full to one gallon water). Be sure the panel is dry and free of spots. Then tilt the panel back into position and repeat the cleaning method on the opposite side. Repeat the process for the remaining panels, returning each to their normal position when clean. It will prolong the life of your Eze-Breeze Sliding Panels and reduce static electric charges that attract dust.
