Windows play an important role in your home’s security and visual appeal. Here are some useful window maintenance tips from the team at Renewal by Andersen® of Cape Cod to ensure your windows provide long-lasting beauty and performance.
First Things First
Do not remove the product label on the side of your window. The label likely contains specific information about the window, which will be very useful should you someday need to have the unit repaired.
When a window is delivered to your home, you may also notice that the glass is covered by a polyethylene film. This film should be removed no more than half a year after installation to prevent it from causing damage to your window.
Avoid Voiding Warranties
Products from a reliable window company come with care and maintenance instructions that you should never ignore. For example, one of the things we emphasize at Renewal by Andersen of Cape Cod is how to care for our Fibrex® frames. Failure to abide by these care instructions can result in your warranty being voided.
You can clean your windows with mild soap and water. Start by cleaning the frames, working from top to bottom. Check all the hardware and make sure that none of the screws or handles are coming loose. Clean the glass last and dry with a soft microfiber cloth. Never use newspaper to clean your window panes.
