EZE Breeze Care and Cleaning Instructions

(IMPORTANT:  Carefully read all instructions before proceeding.)

You have just purchased the best vinyl-glazed sliding panel available today.  With proper care and cleaning, PGT Exe-Breeze Sliding Panels will give you years of trouble-free service.  The vinyl is a strong, resilient material specially formulated to resist deterioration from the sun’s ultra-violet rays.  However, they must be properly cleaned and maintained.  Please clean vinyl at least twice a year.

WARNING:  All vinyl siding panels can be punctured or cut with a sharp object.  Remove rings, bracelets and watches when washing.  Do not use any alcohol or ammonia-based products or dishwashing detergents/soaps, as they can harm vinyl.  Follow cleaning recommendations below.

STEP 1:  Allow panels to cool before washing.  Thoroughly vacuum all areas of window frame using the soft brush attachment to remove loose dirt and dust.  Hose off outside window area if subject to blowing sand or grit.

STEP 2:  To release the pressure catch on the top panel, raise the bottom three panels up to the top, then pull down sharply on all three at once.  Lower all panels to the bottom panel position.

STEP 3:  Use a chair to rest the windows on when they are tipped out.  To do this, release the slide latches of the front panel and tip the top of the panel toward you, resting it on the chair (bottom of panel stays in track).  Repeat with each remaining panel.

STEP 4:  Rinse with clear water first.  Using a soft cloth and Woolite® or Murphy Oil Soap® and water, clean face-up portion of the top panel (outside of the top panel).  Spots from hard water mineral deposits from a sprinkler can be removed with a mixture of warm water and Woolite or Murphy Oil Soap (one cap-full to one-gallon water).  After cleaning, using Murphy Oil Soap will also help rejuvenate the look of the vinyl.  NOTE:  For best results, we recommend a final cleaning with a moderate amount of our PGT Vinyl Cleaner & Preservative.  It will prolong the life of your Eze-Breeze Sliding Panels and reduce static electric charges that attract dust.

STEP 5:  Lift top panel.  Return it to track by pushing thumb latch back.  Raise the panel to a comfortable working height and clean the inside.  After cleaning, move the top panel to its position at the top of the window opening.  Repeat step 4 and 5 with remaining panels, returning each to their normal position when clean.


If necessary, follow these easy steps:

  1. Start with innermost panel (bottom panel).
  2. Release slide latches and lift top toward your at about a 45° angle.
  3. Lift up the side to remove fixed pin at bottom of track.
  4. Carefully remove panel and set aside.  Repeat for remaining panels.

                      Note:  Marking each panel will help you replace them in the proper order later. 

  1. To replace, reverse procedure.
  2. It is also recommended to remove the vents and clean the screens. This process will help in keeping the vinyl clean.
