One way to keep your windows – energy-efficient windows especially – structurally sound and functioning well for a long period of time is by maintaining their cleanliness. Here are a few ways you can do just that, from Renewal by Andersen of Memphis.
Choose the Right Time of Day
Clean your windows on good weather days but pick a time when it isn’t too hot out either. Apart from the discomfort of being out doing window cleaning at noon, for instance, you’ll risk damaging your windows when you do so. The cleaning products you use may dry much faster than you can wipe them off, causing streaks to appear on your window glass afterwards.
Use Window-Friendly Materials
Reputable window installation companies will warn you against using abrasive cleaning tools and solutions, with good reason. All you really need to keep your windows clean is a mild detergent and water solution. You can add a bit of vinegar too if you prefer that.
Clean the Tracks Too
If you have gliding windows from Renewal by Andersen of Memphis, keep them operating smoothly at all times by preventing dirt buildup from obstructing panel movements. Clear tracks gently and avoid pushing dirt further in.
Avoid Using Too Much Water
More water is not always better when it comes to cleaning your windows. Excessive moisture on or around your windows can lead to serious problems, including warped frames and mold growth. Control the amount of water you use and dry your windows as best as you can afterwards.
