Tips For Taking Care Of Your New Conservatory

 

When you invest in a new conservatory it goes without saying that you will want to ensure you’re taking care of it properly. Depending on the design you choose, they aren’t always a cheap addition to a home and in order to ensure you avoid any additional costly repair costs, it is essential you undertake regular maintenance. 

 

No matter what shape, design or roof type your conservatory may be, there are some general care tips that are beneficial to know. So, to help anyone who has just had a new conservatory installed or if you’re considering getting a conservatory installed but you’re curious about what type of maintenance they require, keep reading today. Our team here at Nu-Look Conservatory Roof Solutions have put together a list of tips for taking care of your new conservatory. 

 

Regularly clean your conservatory 

 

Whilst this may seem obvious, and the majority of new conservatories are designed not to require much maintenance in this regard, there are still things you need to do. Of course, having a dirty conservatory is never a good look but there is more to it than just looks. 

 

Take the time to clean all windows, doors, seals and frames of your conservatory every few months and also remove any moss or algae growing on your glass or tiled roof. It is also worthwhile making sure your gutters and drainpipes are clear and in good condition to prevent any potential damage.

 

Keep the space well ventilated 

 

We can’t stress enough how important ventilation is for conservatories and it is something that you should always have in mind. Of course, poor ventilation in a new conservatory can lead to a whole host of issues that often start with a simple build-up of condensation. 

 

Always ensure you adhere to any advice regarding a ‘drying-out period’ given by your installers. Thereafter, whenever you get the chance to, open the doors and windows of your conservatory and allow the air to flow through. You should also ensure that you keep all trickle vents open all year round to prevent any ventilation issues, and if you have a roof vent, then open this too. 

 

Ensure you control the temperature in your conservatory 

 

Often, because a new conservatory can be considered separate to the rest of the house, it is sometimes forgotten about in relation to room temperature. If you’re not using the space then this may slip your mind but temperature control is actually very important.

 

On top of your ventilation to prevent condensation and even damage caused by damp, you should ensure that you’re maintaining a good temperature in your new conservatory, especially over winter months. Even if you’re not using your conservatory, you should treat it like any other room in your home when heating is concerned. 

 

Taking care of a new conservatory  

 

The tips above can help you ensure that you keep your conservatory in the best possible condition. Whilst it may seem like a lot of extra work, by simply incorporating some of the tips above into your regular cleaning routine it will soon become second nature. Of course, you will thank yourself in the long run for taking care of your new conservatory and you can guarantee that it will help keep it a beautiful place for your family and friends to enjoy all year round.
