Good Window Maintenance Habits for 2021

For a lot of people, the new year means setting new goals and starting new habits. If you have things that you want to achieve for yourself, why not also have a plan for your home? It’s a good idea to start with your windows since they affect the look of both your interior and exterior.

Good Window Maintenance Habits for 2021

Here are good maintenance habits to know for 2021 that will help prolong the lifespan and efficiency of your windows.

Remove Dust From Your Windows

If you have curtains or blinds, make sure to remove them first before you start cleaning. Using a broom or brush, clean the corners of the window and window sill to get rid of dust buildup.

Clean the Outside from Indoors

In most modern houses, you won’t need to use a ladder to clean both sides of your windows. Many of today’s windows can be tilted inward for easier outdoor cleaning. If you have casement windows, open the window until it is fully extended between the frame and sash. It would help to learn about what your windows can do and if you have windows that do not open inward, it may be time to invest in units that do. For easy to clean windows and doors, you can rely on Renewal by Andersen® of Kansas City.

Wipe Off and Clean Excess Water

Using a clean squeegee, start from the top of the window. Work your way down in a mirror-S pattern for the best results. You can prevent spreading dirt all over your windows with frequent cleaning of the squeegee blade. Wipe any excess water along the base of the window using a towel. Any streaks on the glass must be wiped off with a lint-free towel.
