How To Clean and Care For Your EZE-Breeze

From PGT EZE-Breeze:Clean

Vinyl is a strong, resilient material specifically formulated to resist deterioration from the sun’s ultra-violet rays.  With proper care and cleaning, PGT EZE-Breeze sliding panes will give you years of trouble-free service and prevent them from drying out or becoming brittle.  Clean your EZE-Breeze sliding panels at least twice a year.
CAUTION:  Remove rings, bracelets, watches or other objects that can puncture or cut the vinyl before cleaning.

WARNING:  Do not use alcohol or ammonia based products, dishwashing detergents/soaps, products that contain abrasives, or other chemicals.  Do not lubricate the main frame tracks or other components.  Use of cleaning products and methods other than those specified below will damage the vinyl and void the warranty.

  1. Allow panels to cool before washing.  Thoroughly vacuum all areas of panel frame using the soft brush attachment, and hose off the exterior of the panels to remove loose dirt, dust, or other debris.  If needed, the main frame tracks and other metal parts can be wiped clean with a soft cloth and clean water.
  2. With the vents in the closed position, raise the bottom panel approximately 1″, release the thumb latches and tilt the panel in.  Rest the tilted panel on a chair or other support.  Lower the remaining three panels to the bottom of the unit, raise the second panel approximately 1″, and tilt it in to rest on the bottom panel.  Repeat until all remaining panels are tilted in.
  3. Starting with the top panel that is facing up, use a soft, lint free cloth and rinse it with clean water.  Apply a cleaning solution of Woolite or Murphy Oil Soap and warm water (one cap-full to one gallon of water).  Be sure the panel is dry and free of spots.  Then tilt the panel back into position and repeat for the remaining panels, returning each to their normal position when clean.

NOTE:  For best results, we recommend a final cleaning with a moderate amount of PGT Vinyl Cleaner available from your PGT distributor.  It will prolong the life of your EZE-Breeze Sliding Panels
