Spring Cleaning Your Doors and Windows

Your doors and windows get daily use but, when it comes to maintenance, they are often the last things on anyone’s to-do list. Even the best replacement windows and patio doors can come into disrepair when neglected. This spring, give these unsung heroes of your house the love and care they deserve.

Spring Cleaning

Here are some timely spring-cleaning tips from our experts at Renewal by Andersen® of Memphis for your windows and doors.

Proper Cleaning

Sliding patio doors typically operate on a track and rail system. Unfortunately, their tracks are susceptible to dust and dirt buildup. Over time, enough dust can accumulate and cause problems with the operation of your sliding door. This spring, check the tracks for any potential obstruction and make sure you clean them completely. Do the same to your sliding windows as well.

Visual Inspection

Give your patio doors and home window replacement a quick inspection and check for any visible signs of a problem. You want to look for chipping, small cracks or even little rips and tears on the frames, jambs and sashes. Call your local window and door contractor if you see any physical damage on the structure of the door and window itself.

Security Features

Double-check the latches and other hardware on your windows and doors to make sure they are working properly. Ensure that their locking mechanism is not showing any problems. Hardware issues are not just a security risk but they can also cause your doors and windows to lose some of its performance.

Clean the Glass

Even though it may sound easy, your door and windows installer may discourage you to use a power washer for cleaning. Too much force can crack the glass and cause a leak in double or multi-pane windows. Use a non-abrasive microfiber cloth and a 50-50 mix of soap and water to clear away any muck on your windows and doors.

"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!!!"
