When you get new windows, all you want is for them to last as long as possible. Replacement windows are an investment and they look so good on your Pompano Beach, FL home. When they first go in, all you really want is for them to stay that way. With a little maintenance and cleaning on your end, they can! Here are some tips to help you clean your replacement windows to help them look as good as new well into the future.
Clean Those Screens!
Even if you don’t clean the windows all that often, cleaning the screens will help you get a clear view. The screens on your windows are the first line of defense your house has against dust and dirt. When you open the windows, those screens can prevent things from getting in. If you want to keep the dirt from getting into the house, clean the screens every now and then. Remove them from the windows and prop them up against the house. You can then spray them down with a hose and scrub them with a soft brush. Once they dry, put them back on the windows and you can start enjoying the view again!
Window Cleaning 101
While you are cleaning your screens, it’s a good time to clean the windows as well. Replacement windows will still get fingerprints and dirt on them. If you want them to look nice, cleaning them every now and then is a must. If you have vinyl windows, just wipe them down with a soft cloth as you go. Then, clean the windows with spray and newspaper for a streak free shine. It’s nice to do the outside while the screens are already off, but the inside is easy to reach any time.
Replacement Window Assessment
If you just got new windows, you don’t have to worry about assessing them when you clean, but it’s nice to know what they are like so you will notice any changes down the road. If your windows are older, cleaning them gives you a good chance to look them over carefully. Are there new cracks or gaps that you didn’t have before? Are some of them harder to open and close than they were in the past? Cleaning gives you a regular time to assess the windows so you can stay on top of repairs or recognize when you need replacement windows.
