Precautions: how to maintain aluminum windows and doors?

1. Clean dirt and grit regularly out of the channels in which the window sashes or door sills and headers slide. You can brush them with a tiny stiff-bristled brush or run along them with the small nozzle attachment of your vacuum cleaner.

2. Spray channels with silicone lubricant after cleaning to lubricate them and inhibit rust and corrosion.

3. Spray stiff spring locks with a moisture-displacing penetrating lubricant like WD-40, for example.

4. Scrub frames with a mild detergent solution such as dish soap and water to prevent oxidation and pitting. Use a soft brush such as a long-handled car washing brush and rinse thoroughly with clear water.

5. Coat frames with a good grade of automobile wax to further protect them and make them shine.

6. Remove mildew from the exterior of aluminum frames with a solution of 1/3 cup of powdered laundry detergent, 2/3 cup of trisodium phosphate such as Soilex, 1 quart of household bleach and 3 quarts of water. Apply the mixture with a soft bristle brush and rinse it well with clear water.
