Cleaning the Glass
You can clean the glass with any common household glass cleaner or mild detergent. Do NOT use any petroleum-based cleaner or solvent. We recommend using a soft cloth, but a paper towel is fine. You should not add any attachments to the window or glass without the manufacturer’s approval. Doing so may void the warranty.
Cleaning the Door Frames
Keeping your doors clean means more than just the glass. Here are some helpful tips for cleaning the PVC frames and sashes of your Sunrise Sliding doors effectively without damaging them.
- Clean door frames with a mixture of mild dish soap* and water. Abrasive or caustic cleaners or solvents are never recommended because they might cause permanent damage to the frame finish. Mild, nonabrasive soaps* are usually safest for most dirt and stain removal.
- Always rinse completely with clear water and wipe dry. Check to make certain that drainage or “weep” holes in the bottom of the frame are always clear of dirt and obstructions.*Ivory® is an example of a mild dish soap. Always test cleaners in an inconspicuous area first.
Keeping Your Sliding Door in Optimal Condition
- It’s a good idea to keep the track system of your door clean and free of debris. If you notice a buildup of residue on the stainless steel guide rail, clean it using a wet towel or use a non-greasy silicone spray (do not use WD40) CRC Silicone spray in a red can is preferred.
- During extended periods of time when the door will not be on use it’s a good idea to keep the screen door in the open position.
- When closing the door to lock, use your hand on the vertical center style to ensure the door closes firmly and resists bounce back from the weather stripping on the frame of the door.
- When using the blind systems do not rush the operation. Moving the blinds in a rapid motion can damage the blind system
