Care & Cleaning

AMSCO® Makes Care and Cleaning Easy.

When cleaning AMSCO windows and doors, use the mildest cleaners possible. NEVER use solvents or abrasive cleansers – some chemicals can harm vinyl, PVC, SuperCap surfaces and other window components. We recommend Fantastik® and similar products to clean vinyl window frame surfaces. Over-the-counter glass cleaning products are recommended for cleaning windows.

Review the special Care & Cleaning instructions for the CōzE Vantage room-side surface low-e glass here.

Below is a chart of cleaners for specific circumstances recommended by the Vinyl Window and Door Institute.
