The New Year is almost here, so now is the time to think about resolutions. When it comes to home maintenance, don’t forget about your windows. After all, they play a great role in enhancing curb appeal and increasing your home’s energy efficiency. Let Renewal by Andersen® of Cape Cod share some window maintenance tips to start your year off right.
Remove built-up dust. Start the maintenance process by tying or removing any window treatments. To remove dust on your windows, use a dustpan brush or broom.
Clean the outside from indoors. Many newer windows can be tilted inward, making them easier to clean. For traditional styles like casement, however, you can open their panes until they are fully extended between the frame and sash. Cleaning them requires more effort, though. If you wish to make your life easier, consider getting new, easy-to-clean replacement windows.
Wash with warm water. Window grilles can be prone to oil stains and other sticky materials. Warm water is the best remedy for cleaning window panes and grilles, especially those located in the kitchen area. Simply soak a cotton cloth in warm water and wipe the panes and grilles with it.
