GEM has chosen the window and door products we carry to minimize the care and maintenance you’ll need to do—that’s the beauty of high quality vinyl, aluminum and fiberglass. Simple cleaning and lubrication will keep your windows and doors looking their best and operating well for years to come.
You can apply a mild soap or vinegar-based cleaner to the glass, either by spraying or using a clean, grit-free cloth or sponge saturated with cleaning solution. Avoid using ammonia or alcohol-based cleaners, which can cause streaking. Less is more—be careful not to damage glazing, frame finish, wood components or insulating unit seals by being overzealous with your cleaners or cleaning. Make sure to follow any directions on the cleaner label for toxicity, handling and flammability warnings.
Use a mild soap or diluted detergent solution with clean, warm water, and wipe surfaces gently using a clean cloth, soft bristle brush, or low pressure spray cleaner. Rinse surfaces thoroughly with clean water before the soap or detergent dries.
Interior mounted screens can be vacuumed with a soft brush attachment or wiped with a soap and water solution. You can also remove the screen, lay it on a flat surface, apply a cleaning solution and let it soak for a minute. Then you can rinse the screen with a low-pressure spray, such as a garden hose.
