How to Maintain Your Conservatory

Conservatory cleaning St. Helens know how lovely it is to have a well-maintained conservatory to sit back and relax in. While conservatories are beautiful spaces, they can quickly accumulate dirt and debris, require repairs and be in need of temperature control. Whether you built your conservatory yourself or just had it built recently, you’ll want to make sure that it stays as clean and pristine as the day you got it.

Our conservatory cleaning St. Helens team has compiled a comprehensive guide to maintaining your conservatory. Below we cover every aspect of conservatory maintenance, from repairing and cleaning to managing your conservatory’s temperature, so start reading to learn how to keep your conservatory in its best condition.

What Not to do When Cleaning Your Conservatory

Before we start explaining how to maintain your conservatory, it’s important to outline a few things not to do so that you can avoid damaging your conservatory. Conservatory cleaning St. Helens always advise people to avoid using pressure washers as they can easily break down and damage the plastic sealant between window panes, leading to air leaks and unexpected temperature changes.

Be sure to also avoid metal scrubbers or spirit-based cleaners or thinning agents for the same reason.

Don’t Climb on the Roof

We always iterate this point to anyone who is looking to do their own conservatory cleaning and maintenance, as it’s one of the easiest ways to break your conservatory’s roof and hurt yourself. Never try to climb onto the roof of your conservatory to clean it. Conservatories are not built to support weight on the roof, especially not the weight of a person.

If you want to clean the glass panes on your conservatory’s roof, there are specific conservatory cleaning ladders and brushes that conservatory cleaning St. Helens use for those hard to reach places.

Keep Your Conservatory Clean

Having a clean conservatory is a matter of cleaning little but often, as it’s much easier to maintain rather than trying to deal with accumulated dirt and debris. Conservatory cleaning St. Helens advise you to try to clean your conservatory windows a couple of times a month, cleaning them on both the inside and outside of the conservatory.

Managing Your Conservatory’s Temperature

Depending on the season, the temperature of your conservatory can range quite significantly. For the winter, look to invest in a small space heater to keep things cosy when it gets cold. During the summer heat, open the door to let air circulate and look at buying a fan or small air conditioning unit to fight against the heat.
