How to Care for Your Windows This Summer

Whether you have double-hung, sliding, or casement windows, you must clean them regularly because they are constantly exposed to the elements. Well-maintained units usually last longer and perform better. Clean windows can also brighten your home since they allow more sunshine indoors. They can make your living space look fresher and more welcoming.

Windows This Summer

Here’s how to care for your windows this summer.

Look for Signs of Leaks

Extreme temperature changes can cause certain window materials to expand and contract. Over time, it can create gaps in some components of the window. As a result, water can leak indoors when it rains. This issue can also occur due to improper installation. Consult a reputable window company if you suspect some units have leaks or damage.

Remove Dirt and Dust From the Sills

Are your windows hard to open and close? It could be because of dirt and dust buildup on their sills. You can remove debris from this part of your windows using an old toothbrush or paintbrush.

Wash Windows Using Appropriate Tools and Cleaning Solution

Your windows will last longer if you regularly clean them. Be sure to use tools and cleaning solutions recommended by the manufacturer. Avoid abrasive cleaners because they can damage the components of your windows. It’s also best to wash your windows when it’s cloudy outside to prevent unsightly streaks on the glass.

Check the Weatherstripping

Windows have weatherstripping that seals the space between sashes and frames. Over time, it can dry out and crack, resulting in air leaks. When this happens, you could experience discomfort and increased energy costs. If your windows’ weatherstripping is old or deteriorating, don’t wait long to replace it.
