Cleaning window frames and sills often gets overlooked, we keep our windows looking great whether we clean the outsides ourselves or employ the services of a window cleaner. But when it comes to the state of the sills and frames, we often wait until a bit of mould, dust, dirt and grime appear before doing anything about it. Knowing how to clean window frames and sills properly, will not only keep them looking great but it will keep them in good condition for longer too.

You have to get clean off as much of the dry dirt as possible and when this is done, you can then start using some water with cleaning additives. If you start off with the liquid, then all you create is a muddy solution which makes the job that much harder.

It really does depend on the type of window sills and frames too. If they are wooden, then remember wood and water don't mix very well. You have to remember not to soak wooden sills or frames when you clean them.

Equipment You'll Need to Wash Window sills & Frames

  • A pair of rubber gloves
  • Some dish washing liquid
  • A bucket
  • Some soft cloths
  • A scrubbing brush
  • A sponge
  • A still hand brush
  • Micro fibre cloths

Here are a few tips of on how to clean window frames and sills that will keep them looking good.

Painted Wooden Sills & Frames

Taking into account that your sills and frames are in pretty good nick, you can wash these down with warm soapy water. Use a washing up liquid and then wipe your sills and frames with a sponge or soft wet cloth. Always make sure you wipe your sills and frames dry with a soft cloth after you have washed them.

However, if your sills and frames aren't in good condition, you might need to repaint these after cleaning them. You will need to brush away all the loose paint after you've cleaned the sills and frames, this will rough up all the surfaces ready for the new paint to be applied.

Stained Wooden Sills & Frames

You can clean stained wooden sills and frames with warm water with a little detergent added to it, and then clean them by using the same method as for painted ones.

Varnished Wooden Sills & Frames

Again, you can wash these down with warm water and a little detergents using the same method as above.

Wood & Aluminium Sills & Frames

You'll find that wooden frames are often varnished when used with aluminium windows, this means you can wash them using warm water with a little detergent. If they are very dirty, aluminium frames may need to be cleaned with a solvent cleaner, something like white spirit will do the job nicely.

UPVC Window Sills & Frames

You need to use a micro fibre cloth to clean these with warm water and a little detergent. To remove any marks left behind, use some UPVC cream cleanser which will get these off very effectively.

Learning how to clean window frames and sills properly means they will last that much longer and you get to see if any need repairing, repainting or replacing.
