One of the many reasons Renewal by Andersen® is one of the most trusted window companies in the country is the quality of our products. We design our double-hung replacement windows with your convenience in mind, which is why we’ve developed them to require minimal routine maintenance. Of course, they can still benefit from a thorough cleaning every now and then.
Read on as the window experts at Renewal by Andersen of Cape Cod offer a few tips on how to keep your double-hung windows looking as good as new.
Our window replacement products, including our double-hung windows, are framed with our exclusive Fibrex® material. This durable thermopolymer composite is resistant to almost any type of weather. Like any material, however, Fibrex does accumulate dust and dirt, which could make your windows look rather unkempt over time. Simply wipe the window frame down with soap and water using a soft dishrag to maintain the natural sheen of the Fibrex material.
Glass Cleaning Options
Renewal by Andersen windows feature High-Performance Low-E4 glass as a default glazing option. Use a non-abrasive cloth to dry-wipe the glass as often as needed. Microfiber cloths work best to minimize microscopic scratches on the glass surface. For a deeper clean, you can use a 50-50 mix of water and liquid detergent. You may also use store-bought window cleaners. Dry the windows completely after washing.
Grilles, sashes and trims generally don’t need professional maintenance from window contractors unless you suspect a break on the weatherproofing seal or leaks in the double-pane glass. All you need to do is give these components a good wipe with a dry cloth every once in a while to keep them looking their best.
