Q: I have sticky residue on my window from a previous attempt to draught proof, how do I get it off?
A: The best way we've found for removing residue is with methylated spirits and a cloth. Use plenty of the methylated spirits on the cloth and gently rub away the residue. Once the residue has been loosened from the surface you will find it rolls in balls that are easily wiped away.
Alternatively, if you have a very stable substrate to work with (not varnished timber), you can use turpentine instead of the methylated spirits. This is not advised if you are unsure as to what finish you currently have on your door jamb.

A: EMV can be used for many applications. To find out if EMV will work for your needs, call us on 1300 326 627, or email us at email@example.com
Q: Can I paint it to match?
A: A water based paint can be used to paint the EMV. However, when the EMV is painted it will lose some of its flexibility. We do not recommend painting the EMV
Q: What do I do if I install the EMV seal and feel no difference?
A: If you have installed the EMV and do not feel a difference, there are three possible reasons.
- You may not have installed the product correctly according to the instructions.
- The size of gap is larger than 7mm
- There may be more significant draughts in your home. You would have to find out where they are and decide how to treat them. This can be done on a DIY basis.
