Keeping your windows clean doesn’t just enhance their appearance; it also helps them function properly for longer. If the thought of regular window cleaning sounds tedious and time consuming to you, don’t worry.. Renewal by Andersen® of Seattle, home of your local window replacement pros, share some of the features that make our windows easy and safe to clean.
A Look at the Easy Cleaning Features of Our Windows
Certain window styles have hard-to-reach areas, making them difficult to clean. In addition, windows located on upper stories of homes can be dangerous to clean if they don’t have certain features enabling cleaning from inside the home.
In this situation, you have the option of buying or renting cleaning tools, leaving your windows partially cleaned, or risking injury by using a ladder to clean the exterior parts. You may also consider professional window cleaners, but this can be costly.
Fortunately, our custom replacement windows have features that allow for easy cleaning. For example, our casement windows have operator arms in place of traditional hinges. When opening the window, the arms create a gap where the hinges normally are. This allows you to clean both the inside and the outside of the unit from the safety of inside your home.
The most notable feature is in our double-hung windows, which have sashes that can be tilted inward. Clips hold the sashes in place securely, but they can be disengaged during cleaning for easy, safe access.
Other Notable Features
Our replacement windows can be equipped with grilles to add style. The grilles can either be installed in between the glass panels or on the surface of the glass interior, which has fasteners that allow for easy attachment and removal. This feature prevents dust and dirt from collecting in the tight corners.
