Maintaining the window seals ensures the constant insulation effect and tightness and extends the service life by three to four times. Maintenance includes constantly keeping the window seals clean and greasing the rubber or silicone surfaces at a specific time.
Fat in winter, powder in summer
Caring for window seals begins with keeping the surfaces dry over the long term. The less frequently and briefly the rubber seals or the silicone are wetted by condensation or rain water, the longer they will last. Therefore, an absorbent rag should always be close at hand near the window so that the window seals and window panes can be wiped dry as often as possible, especially during the heating season. This also reduces the possible formation of mold on the window seals.our recommendation

In order to support the elasticity of rubber, flexible plastics and silicone, liquid or film-like silicone can be applied to the surfaces. Grease pencils for the lips are also good home remedies. Greasing is recommended for maintenance, especially in the winter season. In summer, talcum powder is a suitable care product for window seals, as it binds moisture and prevents the material surfaces from sticking.

Especially in winter, you should wipe the window panes and seals with a dry cloth at least once a day. Better still, drying immediately after noticing moisture.our recommendation

At the beginning of the summer season in spring, talcum powder is a good care product that breaks the tendency of rubber or silicone to stick at higher temperatures. Renew the talcum application two to three times during the summer months.our recommendation
