Cleaning Your Windows at Home Safely and Efficiently

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.

"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!!!"
