Even “low-maintenance” replacement windows still need to be cleaned periodically to ensure they perform and look their best. Today, Renewal by Andersen® of Seattle explains how to go about cleaning your windows this fall.
The Right Weather Conditions
It may sound counterintuitive, but you should avoid cleaning your windows on a sunny day. This is because the heat from the sun can cause the cleaning solution to dry too quickly, leaving unsightly streaks on your windows. For best results, wait for an overcast day to tackle this chore.
Remove or push aside window accessories like blinds or drapes before cleaning the windows. Dust the blinds and clean the draperies according to the product instructions.
Frames, Tracks and Screens
Cleaning the frames and tracks of your window is simple; just use a soft bristle brush to wipe any dust away. Alternatively, you can also use an extension hose to vacuum any debris. For the screens, remove them from the window and use a garden hose to wash them.
Use a residue-free glass cleaner for your window. This is because cleaners with soaps, scents or dyes leave residue that can form streaks and attract more dust and grime to the surface. Avoid using newspaper to wipe the glass because it may contain softening agents and ink that could be transferred to the glass. Of course, you can always contact reliable window contractors with any questions about window maintenance or cleaning.
