Care and Maintenance for Your ProVia Window and Door

Maintenance of your window or patio door is important to keep it operating at its fullest potential. Here are some important steps to take throughout the year to keep your windows and doors looking beautiful.

1. Keep sill track clean of dirt and debris so water can freely flow outside.
2. Keep all weep holes free of obstructions so water can freely flow outside.
3. Inspect exterior caulking regularly and replace when necessary.
4. Clean and check operation of hardware and weatherstripping regularly and repair if necessary.
5. Keep weatherstrip clean of dirt and grit for proper seal. Wash with mild soap and water, rinse with water and wipe dry. Apply a light coat of wax (Lemon Pledge®) and wipe off excess.
6. Determine the source of any moisture that you see around your windows or doors and stop its entry and accumulation.
7. Immediately dry out any areas around the interior of your windows and doors that you observe are wet (immediate action is necessary to mitigate any damage to your home). The use of a dehumidifier, fan or any warm air source will help dry out affected area.
8. Maintain relative humidity at moderate levels.
