The weather turns cool gradually from summer to autumn. The change of temperature affects our living environment, and it will also have a certain impact on household buildings. Then as an important part of household decoration – doors and windows, we should also pay attention to maintenance in autumn.

Some problems can be found in the maintenance of doors and windows, so as to eliminate the potential safety hazards of doors and windows and extend the service life of doors and windows products.

Why do windows and doors need to be maintained in autumn?

In addition to the daily cleaning of doors and windows, they should be maintained at least twice a year, which is suitable in spring and autumn.

In spring and autumn, the weather is changeable, accompanied by sandstorm and rainfall, and the temperature difference between day and night is large, which easily leads to various problems of doors and windows. Especially for the slot position of doors and windows, it is necessary to use a vacuum cleaner to remove the dust accumulated in the slot and sealing strip, so as to prevent the slot from blocking.

After the rainy day, the wet glass and window frame shall be wiped out in time, and special attention shall be paid to wipe out the accumulated water in the chute, so as to avoid the influence of rain on the doors and windows.

How to maintain doors and windows?

In daily use, do not push hard and pull hard, should let it be natural, do not pull hard and push hard when there is an obstacle, should first remove the fault. Do not hang heavy objects on the window sash, and avoid sharp tool collision and scratch. Do not use excessive force when opening or closing windows. Don’t open doors and windows with hands with water stains or other solutions to avoid discoloration of hands.

Cleaning and maintenance

When cleaning, the glass, frame, sash and other parts shall be cleaned. The surface of the door and window shall be wiped with soft cloth or neutral detergent, then the surface of the door and window shall be cleaned with clean water, and finally dry with dry soft cloth to ensure that the glass, frame and other parts are not scratched.

Remember not to use ordinary soap and washing powder, not to use decontamination powder, toilet cleaner and other strong acid-base cleaners, which will corrode the profile surface.

Check the connection between window frame and wall

If it is loose, it will easily lead to the overall deformation of the window frame, so that the doors and windows cannot be closed and sealed. Therefore, the screws at the connection should be tightened immediately. If the screw base is loose, the epoxy strong glue should be used to adjust a small amount of cement for sealing, and the damaged parts should be replaced in time to ensure the use safety of doors and windows.

In addition, the sealing wool and glass glue are the key structures to ensure the sealing and heat preservation of doors and windows. If they fall off, they should be repaired and replaced in time.

The hinge of doors and windows, lifting wheel and other hardware components may reduce performance due to the adhesion of dust during long-term movement. After 1-2 drops of lubricating oil every half year or so, they can be opened and closed 3-5 times repeatedly to ensure complete lubrication, which can increase the flexibility and service life of hardware rotating mechanism.

However, when the lock cylinder is not flexible enough, do not drip lubricating oil, because it will be easier to adhere to dust. A small amount of black powder can be scraped off the pencil lead and gently blown into the lock hole. The graphite component in the pencil lead is a good solid lubricant.
