As we say good-bye to winter and look ahead to summer, it’s time for spring cleaning! This includes cleaning Eze-Breeze® windows, which are one of the most popular choices for porch ventilation by Archadeck of Raleigh-Durham clients. (Eze-Breeze® windows are a combination window system made of screens and ultra-clear vinyl that allow you to easily change your screened porch into a 3-season room simply by opening and closing the windows.)
What Cleans Eze-Breeze Windows?
Eze-Breeze® windows makes a cleaner specifically for their windows. If you are interested in getting this product from us, please let us know. We are happy to help you.
If you want to use a DIY solution, we recommend using a lint free cloth rinsed with clean water to apply Woolite® or Murphy Oil Soap® and warm water. We recommend using one cap full per gallon of warm water.
Don’t be tempted by the cleaner that you use for your other windows; it can damage the vinyl and void your warranty. NEVER use alcohol, ammonia based, dishwashing soap, or products with abrasives or other harsh chemicals.
How to Clean Eze-Breeze Windows
Follow these steps for maximum cleaning performance.
- Step 1: Make sure the windows are cool before you wash them.
- Step 2: Vacuum the frame using a soft brush attachment.
- Step 3: Hose off the exterior of your Eze-Breeze windows to remove loose dirt and debris.
- Step 4: If the frames and tracks need cleaning, use a soft cloth and clean water to wipe them clean.
- Step 5: Close all of your vents.
- Step 6: Start with the bottom panel, raise it about one inch, release the thumb latches and tilt it in, resting it on a chair.
- Step 7: Lower the remaining two panels by raising the bottom panel an inch, repeating Step 6, and letting the second panel rest down on the first panel. Repeat Step 7 for the last panel.
- Step 8: Start with the top panel. Use a lint free cloth rinsed with clean water to apply the Eze-Breeze® or DIY cleaner (see above).
- Step 9: Be sure the panel is dry and free of spots before putting it back in place and moving on to the next panel.
