Your home’s windows are a part of your home that requires a considerable amount of cleaning to look pristine and perform as intended. However, you should be careful when doing so since using harsh chemicals can damage the glass and leave smudges or blemishes. One of the quickest and safest ways to clean your windows is through steam cleaning them. In this post, your windows replacement specialist, Renewal by Andersen of Cape Cod, shares some helpful tips for you to steam clean effectively.
Why Steam Clean?
Some homeowners might wonder why they should go through the trouble of steam cleaning their windows when they can do the tried-and-tested method of using chemicals and a towel to clean them. While the previous technique works, you run the risk of tarnishing your windows if you use a strong agent when you clean them. This isn’t the case when using steam. It’s environmentally safe for every member of your family and removes oil, dirt, grease and fingerprints with ease without the use of any harmful chemicals. It also sanitizes and kills germs present on the surface.
Steam Cleaning Tips
1. Use the steamer exclusively for cleaning. Using them for other purposes may warrant unwanted effects such as moisture buildup or heat marks.
2. Your window replacement contractor strongly advises you to wear shoes when using any kind of steaming device for your safety.
3. Use a portable steamer on surfaces or materials that can handle high heat and moisture.
4. Be mindful of temperature variations before using your steamer. Don’t use a portable steamer during a cold winter day since the difference in temperature can cause the glass to break, just like when washing a hot cup with cold running water.
