Tips for daily window maintenance

1.  Do not open the door lock with wet hands, or splash corrosive solvents on wooden doors and door locks. Do not use excessive force when opening the door lock or turning the door lock handle. Hinges, door locks, and other frequently moving hardware accessories should be tightened immediately when loose. When the door lock fails to open, you can add an appropriate amount of lubricant such as a pencil lead to the keyhole for lubrication.

2.  When wiping the glass, do not let the cleaning agent or water penetrate the gap of the glass bead, so as not to deform the bead. Do not use too much force when wiping the glass, otherwise, the glass may be damaged and hurt people. If the glass is broken, please have it repaired by professionals.

3.  Do a good job of checking and repairing the tightness: The balance hole is an important part of maintaining the tightness of the window. The balance hole needs to be protected in daily life. The balance hole is a hole for draining and decompressing the window frame and sash of plastic steel doors and windows. Daily maintenance should avoid the obstruction of the balance hole.

4.  usually cleaner up track blocking and rusting of doors and windows are factors affecting rain and water resistance. Therefore, in daily maintenance, you must pay attention to cleaning the track regularly to ensure that there is no blockage of particles and dust; secondly, wash with soapy water to prevent surface rust.

5.  Cautions for use of doors and windows: push and pull the middle and lower part of the sash when opening the window, to improve the life of the sash; secondly, do not push the glass hard, otherwise the glass is easy to loose; finally, the track window frame should be avoided from being hit by hard objects, otherwise Deformation of window frames and tracks affects rain resistance.

How to maintain the hardware of windows in summer    

The hot summer is coming. The severe heat is not only testing everyone's endurance, but it is also testing our door and window hardware. How to maintain these door and window hardware and extend the service life of doors and windows. In general, door and window hardware is mainly divided into hinges, handles, lock bodies, mortise locks, window hooks and so on.

First of all, talk about hinges, casters, hanging wheels, etc. These parts are easily contaminated by dust in the daily use of doors and windows, which will cause its performance to decrease. It is recommended that you regularly apply some lubricants. Most of the frequency is once every six months.

Of course, you should check it frequently according to the frequency you use. Then talk about the lock body, specifically the lock core. During the use of windows and doors, the lock core is extremely prone to dust.

At this time, the lock body hair shaft will appear, and the feeling of smooth movement will appear. In some cases, you only need to pin the pencil lead slightly, just blow it in gently, because the main component of the pencil lead is graphite, and graphite is a wear-resistant lubricating material. It is often used as a lubricant in the machinery industry. Remember, you cannot use lubrication. Oil, not only does not have a lubricating effect but also increases the stickiness to dust, which is worse.

Let ’s talk about the handle again. Many handles are now integrated with the lock body. When opening doors and windows, you should not use too much force.

This not only protects the handle effectively but also protects the lock body. Here we need to remind children who have children at home.

Don’t let your child hang on the handle to play. The load of the door handle is not so large, it is easy to cause harm to the child, and it will also affect the life of the handle. When there are stains on the handle, use a soft cloth and wipe with a little water.

Finally, I want to remind everyone that it is rainy in the summer. After the rain, you must use a dry cloth to clean the water in the chute to avoid the increase of friction and damage to the windows and doors when the windows are opened and closed.

How to install elastic metal weatherstrips for windows

manufacturers package elastic metal weatherstrips in rolls and provide brads for installation. Although the installation of such weather strips may seem simple, it does take some patience.

  • Adjust the position of the vertical bar so that the flared flange faces outward. The middle weatherstrip should be fixed on the upper window frame with the flange down, while other horizontal weather strips should be fixed on the top of the upper window frame and the bottom of the lower window frame with the flange outward. Use metal scissors to cut the elastic metal weatherstrip to the proper size. Make sure the windows can move freely.
  • Attach the weatherstrip to the window frame. Properly adjust the position of the weatherstrip, paying attention to hinges, locks or other hard objects that may cause interference. Trim the metal strips where needed. Then cut out the end of the weatherstrip at a certain angle, so that the horizontal bar and the vertical bar are pieced together. Nail one at the top and one at the bottom of the weatherstrip. Do not nail more nails at this time, nor nail the top and bottom nails. Since some vertical bars do not have nail holes, you may need to use a pointed cone or crushed ice cone to make some guide holes.
  • Make sure the weatherstrips are straight and in place. Then nail in the center of the weatherstrip, but still don’t nail it completely. Drive more nails between the first nails. To avoid damaging the weatherstrip, never nail any nails with a hammer. Instead, a nail punch is used to press the nail in.

Time entered the midsummer season with the rise of temperature. At the corner of the street that was pouring rain day by day, the water curtain fell along the window sill.

Rainy in summer, the window as the first line of defense of “rain and moisture”, must choose high-quality products, and pay attention to maintenance.

The surface of the window and the surrounding rainwater need to be cleaned in time to ensure that there are no excess water stains on the hardware and the window. The hardware and accessories of windows should be checked regularly.

Because the long-term activities and support of accessories, lubricating oil should be added regularly to ensure smooth and flexible use of windows.

Due to the large area of doors and windows, care should be taken to open them lightly to reduce the depreciation rate of doors and windows. If the damage is encountered, the weatherstrip and window glass need to be replaced in a timely manner.
