Tips for Cleaning Mold on Window Casings

Most homeowners don’t realize they have mold on their windows until discoloration starts to take place. More often than not, mold begins to form at the joint at the bottom of the windows between the glass and the frame. It is usually easy to see unless the mold is the same color as the frame.

Tips for Cleaning Mold on Window Casings

To keep mold from damaging your windows and spreading throughout your home, here are some smart tips from Renewal by Andersen® of Memphis, your window and door replacement expert:

Prioritize Safety

Before anything else, put on protective gear like gloves, safety glasses and face mask. This keeps you from ingesting harmful spores that mold can release into the air. You should also open your door and window to improve airflow and keep the spores from staying inside your home. Then, cover the floor to catch any of the falling mold.

Use Gentle Cleaners

Never use newspaper or other ink-based papers as they may discolor your window frames. Instead, use a non-abrasive brush or rag to prevent potential damage on your replacement windows. For the cleaning solution, use a mild solution of soap and water. If the mold is too tough to remove, it’s best to ask your window company what cleaning products are safe to use.

Control Humidity Levels

Prevention is key when it comes to addressing mold growth, and one of the best ways to do so is to maintain the right humidity levels. Use exhaust fans in rooms with high humidity like the bathroom and kitchen to reduce moisture. Depending on the kind of plants you have in your home, you may also consider removing some of them as they add moisture to the air. If condensation is forming on the windows due to the cold weather, take advantage of humidifiers.

"Absolutely wonderful experience working with renewal. They kept my wife and I up to date all throughout the process from the initial sales pitch to installation. They were courteous and professional throughout. The installation of 8 windows was completed in one day and the product is fantastic. Immediate difference felt inside the home and its much quieter now too. My wife and I are thrilled at our purchase. The windows are a bit pricey but worth every single penny. Wonderful product from a wonderful company. Will definitely be using them in the future to install the rest of the windows in our home."

"When I say, superior service I mean just that!! From start to finish I was pleased!! Step 1, Scheduled appointment at the Home show… easy. Step 2, phone call to confirm appointment the next week….easy. Step 3, in home consultation with Keith Billingsley…..Amazing!!!! Step 4, call and cancel all other Window companies and let them know you have chosen the Best company, Anderson Windows!!! My Windows took a couple of months to come which was not a problem. Oooohhh but when installing day came ( a week early) I was lost for words. The installation team was A1 with professionalism and cleanliness!! They didn’t leave a scrap of trash on my property. It was cleaned up both days. I had Ed Tutton and crew. I had a million questions and they answered every one of them and made me feel so assured with the process. A couple of my Windows had wood rotted. They took care of it and fixed it better than when the house was built!!! Two of my Windows came in broken, it was addressed and shown to us and reorder in the same day!! They will be installed later. The Windows are so beautiful I stood in my master bedroom Windows for almost 3 hours just looking out. I hate Window grates…. I have solid glass Windows now❤️❤️! I wish I would have ordered my new front doors from Anderson Windows. So if you are looking to get new Windows you must go with Anderson Windows!!!"
