Your UPVC sliding windows are a convenient and energy-efficient addition to your home, but like any other part of your house, they require regular maintenance to keep them functioning optimally. The sliding window handles, in particular, play a crucial role in the smooth operation of your windows, and proper care is essential to ensure their longevity.


Lubricate regularly: Every few months or as needed, apply a silicone-based lubricant to the moving parts of the handle. This will reduce friction and prevent wear and tear.

Tighten screws: Over time, the screws holding the handle in place can become loose. Regularly check and tighten any loose screws to prevent the handle from becoming wobbly or falling off.

Inspect weatherstripping: The weatherstripping around the handle helps to keep out drafts and moisture. Inspect it periodically for any gaps or damage and replace it as necessary.


Avoid harsh chemicals: Harsh chemicals like bleach or ammonia can damage the finish of your window handles. Stick to gentle cleaning solutions instead.

Use a mild soap solution: A mixture of mild soap and warm water is an effective cleaning solution for UPVC window handles. Use a soft cloth to wipe down the handles and remove any dirt or grime.

Dry thoroughly: After cleaning, use a soft, dry cloth to dry the handles thoroughly. This will prevent watermarks or streaks from forming.


If the handle becomes stuck, do not force it. Instead, try gently working it back and forth until it loosens up.

For stubborn dirt or grime, use a cotton swab dipped in rubbing alcohol to gently remove it.

Consider using a UPVC cleaner specifically designed for cleaning UPVC surfaces, as it will be gentle yet effective.

By following these maintenance and cleaning tips, you can keep your UPVC sliding window handles in good condition and ensure the smooth and trouble-free operation of your windows for years to come.
