The life and usability of your double-hung, sliding or casement window can be made longer by observing proper cleaning practices. Renewal by Andersen® of Phoenix suggests that you observe the following as you try to keep your windows safe, sound and clean at all times.
Do an inspection before actually cleaning your windows. Try to spot signs of disrepair or moisture damage. See if all the hardware are working well and if any have to be replaced. If you see signs of warping in the frames or fog in your glass panes, have a window contractor look at your windows right away. The earlier any problems are caught, the better the chance your windows can outlast them.
Pay as much attention to your window frames as you do your glass. Keep all the hardware clean so they don’t only work well but accentuate your windows nicely at the same time. If you have Renewal by Andersen of Phoenix gliding windows installed, keep them working great by maintaining clean tracks. Use appropriate cleaning materials and prevent excess moisture from pooling anywhere on and around your windows too.
Keep a Regular Schedule
It is important not just to clean your windows consistently but to have them professionally inspected regularly, as well. There are some problems that only window experts can spot or anticipate and, as prevention is key in most cases, so will it be in maintaining your windows at home. Heeding professional advice can go a long way in ensuring that a window performs and lasts in good condition for as long as it is expected to.
