Can you use bleach on uPVC windows? 

You should not use bleach to clean uPVC windows. This is because the chemicals in it can, and will, react with the plastic. In most cases, using bleach on uPVC windows will spoil their shiny, glossy finish and leave them looking dull, matte, and in some cases even brown. 

Can you steam clean uPVC window frames? 

Steam cleaners can be used to refresh uPVC window frames effectively. This is especially true if the window frames have accumulated a lot of dirt and grime over time. That being said, it’s important to select the right attachment when you do this to make sure you don’t scratch or damage the frames. We’d recommend a nozzle attachment with a brush, but take care if you decided to use your steam cleaner to clean your uPVC window frames. 

Can cleaning products damage uPVC window frames? 

The reason why we recommend a gentle cleaner, such as hot water mixed with washing up liquid, to clean your uPVC window frames is to avoid damage or scratches. There are lots of products that have the potential to damage uPVC, so it’s best to steer clear. This includes: 

  • Bleach 
  • Methylated spirits 
  • Nail varnish remover 
  • Cream cleaners (e.g. Cif)
  • Scouring pads 
  • WD40
