Proper Window Care and Maintenance Tips for Fall
How can homeowners keep their windows in good condition this fall? With proper care and maintenance, of course!
Windows should be cleaned regularly for optimal performance. That’s because even if your windows are masterfully designed and crafted, they still won’t do much good if left neglected for long. Cleaning and taking good care of your windows will ensure peak performance from your windows as well as good service for many years to come.
To help you out with this important household task, Jones & Associates, experts when it comes to replacement windows in Lubbock, TX and the surrounding areas, offers these few simple tips:
Cleaning the Frame
Window frames are really easy to clean. You just need a sponge, a couple of clean rags, and a solution of non-abrasive soap and water. Dip the sponge or rag in the solution and wipe off any smudges and dirt on the frame. When you’re satisfied that every part of the window frame is clean, you can wipe it with a clean, dry rag. Be sure not to use abrasive soaps or acidic cleaners as they can cause permanent damage to the frame’s finish.
Cleaning the Glass
Regular cleaning can ensure clarity and outstanding performance. To start with the cleaning, you’re going to need a mild solution of dish soap and water. Apply the soap and water solution to the glass by spraying or by using a non-abrasive sponge. Wipe the entire glass area clean with the sponge or a rag and rinse completely with clean water, then wipe with a soft cloth to dry.
Inspecting the Window
Once you’re done cleaning, you should be able to take a close look at your windows. Are they worn out from aging? Are the caulking and weatherstripping in good condition? If so, are there still leaks? If there are, you might want to consider replacing your windows with newer, more efficient ones.
