Tip for window maintenance

If you find that your windows/doors are a bit stiff when you open them or the handles are sticking it’s probably time to give them a little tlc by way of a spray of silicone lubricant.

Now that hot weather is here you’re probably opening all your windows and some may be taking a little more effort than usual. The windows you use the least are probably the most stiff.

Silicone lubricants are the best tool for the job. There are several on the market, and our local Robert Dyas sells WD-40 high performance silicone.

A quick whizz round your flat spraying all of the moving parts and opening/closing a couple of times should help ensure that the windows/doors and their handles don’t seize up and break. A stitch in time…
