Care & Cleaning of Eze Breeze Windows

Eze-Breeze Vinyl is a strong and resilient material specially formulated to resist deterioration from the sun’s ultraviolet rays. With proper care and cleaning, Eze-Breeze sliding panels will give you years of trouble-free use and will prevent them from drying out or becoming brittle.

One of the many things that sets Eze-Breeze panels apart from other products is that the vents tilt in for easy cleaning, inside and out. Regular inspections and cleaning of your Eze-Breeze panels will keep them in top shape for years to come and protect you from voiding your product’s warranty.

Maintaining Your Porch

The first step in maintaining a beautiful porch is to clean it regularly. If you have a wood floor, sweeping and vacuuming prevents the dirt from getting ground into the grain of the wood or scratching the surface of the floor. 

Composite decking has become a popular choice for homeowners seeking a low maintenance and durable outdoor living space. While composite decks are known for their resistance to weathering and rot, proper care and maintenance are essential to ensure their longevity and lasting beauty.

Sweep regularly, act quickly if there is a spill to prevent them from setting into the composite material. Use a mild soap and water solution to clean the affected area. 

Avoid Grease and Oil: Keep cooking and grilling activities away from your composite deck to avoid grease and oil stains. If a spill occurs, clean it up as soon as possible to prevent staining.

Tips To Clean a Patio

With spring’s pending arrival, it’s time to start tackling your list of outdoor cleaning projects, including cleaning patio pavers. Your yard’s patio brick pavers bear the brunt of passing foot traffic and may begin to look worn and dirty by the end of winter. Living in Northern Virginia with high humidity can lead to mold growth on your pavers. Cleaning patio brick pavers can restore their natural look and keep them looking their best for years to come.

How to Maintain a Deck for Maximum Durability

Removing build-up allows for better water drainage and makes space for debris to fall through the cracks. Sweep the entire deck of dirt, debris, leaves, and salt at least once per season. Move your furniture, grill, and other accessories out of the way. A thorough sweep ensures your deck remains clean and dry.

Snow Removal From Your Deck

When removing snow from your deck, make sure to use a plastic shovel, leaving one inch of snow. You can sweep off the remaining or let it melt. Shovel in the direction of the decking. This will keep your deck from getting scratched. Never use salt on any decking products as this can stain the decking.
