Window Maintenance Tips for Fall

Your exterior influences the curb appeal and efficiency of your residential home. It is crucial to perform cleaning and maintenance procedures on an annual basis in order to keep your home in tip-top shape. Here are some essential tips to help you maintain your windows during the fall season.

In today’s blog, replacement windows expert Renewal by Andersen® of Memphis shares tips for maintaining the good condition of your windows during the fall season.

Window Maintenance Tips for Fall

Repair Faulty Locks and Hinges

A window unit that does not shut properly or cannot open for ventilation is a liability and can diminish the comfort you experience at home. Checking your windows for broken hinges or faulty locks is an important window maintenance task. It will minimize drafts, improve security and ensure that your home has adequate ventilation.

Improve Insulation

Fall is the transition period into the ice-cold, snowy winter season. Consider investing in heavy curtains to keep your home cozy during these colder months. Curtains with proper lining and thick material can provide warmth and insulation to your living space. They will also contribute to keeping your heating expenses down as the temperature outside gets cooler.

If you are looking for an upgrade, Renewal by Andersen offers window units with the Fibrex® frame material and double glazing. These windows have superior insulating properties to traditional vinyl replacement windows.

Clean Away Mold

Mold is a common moisture-related problem. It looks unsightly and is potentially affecting you and your family’s health. It is crucial that you remove any signs of mold and mildew from your windows to keep your home a safe and efficient place. You can prevent the growth of mold by wiping off moisture from the window frame and glass regularly. It is also helpful to use ventilation tools such as exhaust fans when showering or cooking.

If simple cleaning and maintenance are no longer sufficient in keeping your windows functional and aesthetically pleasing, a window replacement may be due.

"Our windows were the original ones that were installed when they built the house in 1972. They wouldn't open, they had been painted shut. They were single pane and the glaze was cracked everywhere. I had to put plastic up every year to help keep the house warm at least a little bit. My MIL was surprised that there weren't any panes in the windows. Now she loves it. We have put a film on the windows so we can see out but no one can see in. We are loving it!"
