Most components on interior and exterior fixtures are system driven and like any other system maintenance is key for effective performance and output. This also helps achieve a long-term utility and durability of the casement. Most people only remember to maintain when they encounter a problem with performance. Its usually small things that malfunction like a chip of aluminium, dropped screws, chipped paint and plaster causing big and costly trouble when ignored. Always check your windows and doors for smoking guns like leaks, dump walls, cracks in paint, damage on the sealants used, chopped screws, chips of glass and difficult in sliding or swinging any window or door.

An annual casement maintenance and check up is crucial for improved performance. Once or twice a year check your system to detail and incase of any occurrence like a destructive storm, strong vibrations or an earth quake check out for damages. Also, usually over the years especially for interior doors due to regular closing and opening, the fitting is lost leading to poor performance that will allow rodents, air or water inside, therefore the maintenance helps them fit back to the frame or original position which boosts performance.
In Uganda and East Africa, our windows and doors are less susceptible to salt spray which is the biggest catalyst for corrosion leading to wear and tear.
In Uganda and East Africa at large, the biggest problem is dusty wind and heavy rains leading to the damage of exterior and interior casement. Through the ventilation and gaps on tracks, a lot of dust and water collects leading to corrosion and rusting which later corrupts their performance. salt spray is also another aspect that leads to the wear and tear of casements though common to areas near the ocean and salt mining areas. Regular cleaning helps reduce the effect of salt spray and its corrosive soot.
