Maintenance Guide for Bifold Doors, Windows, and Roof Lanterns

  1. Bifold Doors:

    • Regular Cleaning: Clean frames, tracks, and glass regularly with mild detergent and a soft cloth.
    • Hardware Maintenance: Lubricate hinges, locks, and handles semi-annually with light engineering oil.
    • Track Care: Keep the tracks free of debris and use a vacuum cleaner for thorough cleaning.
    • Seal Inspection: Check rubber seals for damage and replace if necessary.
    • Material-Specific Care: For wooden frames, use a wood-care product annually; for aluminium, clean with a mild soapy solution.

  2. Windows:

    • Frame and Glass Cleaning: Clean window frames and glass periodically with a non-abrasive cleaner.
    • Moving Parts Maintenance: Lubricate any moving parts, like hinges and handles, to ensure smooth operation.
    • Drainage Holes: Ensure any drainage or ventilation holes are clear to avoid water build-up.
    • Sealant and Gaskets: Check for any wear or tear in sealants or gaskets and replace if needed.

  3. Roof Lanterns:

    • Glass Cleaning: Use a suitable glass cleaner to maintain clarity and reduce dirt build-up.
    • Frame Maintenance: Clean the frame as per the material (wooden or aluminium) and inspect for any damage.
    • Ventilation Checks: If the roof lantern has any ventilation components, ensure they are functioning correctly.
    • Safety First: For any hard-to-reach areas, use appropriate safety equipment or consider professional cleaning services.
