chartwell green composite door installed in dundee

Composite and uPVC doors are a popular choice for homes in Scotland due to their energy-efficiency, strength and huge range of colour and style options. One of our favourite things about uPVC and composite doors is how low maintenance they are to keep them looking their best.

Unlike traditional wooden doors, modern uPVC and composite doors are highly resistant to warping, rotting or splitting so no need for jobs like painting in summer and weatherproofing when coming in to winter.

Really all that you need to do to keep a uPVC door or composite door ‘box fresh’ is clean it. And we aren’t talking fancy, expensive cleaning tools and products. We’re talking good old warm soapy water paired with a soft sponge or cloth.

✨ To clean the frames and panels use a soft sponge and a non abrasive soap such as washing up liquid. Gently remove dirt and grime and dry with a soft cloth.

✨ For the glass, again warm soapy water and a soft cloth is good here. If you need some extra sparkle, you can use your favourite glass cleaner and gently buff it into the glass with a microfibre cloth for the shine.

✨ For the hardware, polish it up with soapy water and a soft cloth – don’t forget to check the hinges for dirt and grime.

✨ Never use abrasive chemicals to clean your composite door and avoid using rough sponges or scourers to remove dirt. Using harsh products to clean your composite door can shorten its lifespan and void your guarantee.
