YEAREND MAINTENANCE TIPS FOR YOUR WINDOWS & DOORS

The year 2015 is just around the corner and of course we want our home to look great in time for New Year celebrations. So from us here at Renewal by Andersen®, your trusted company for home remodeling St. Louis MO, here are some simple yet helpful tips on how to keep your windows and doors in tip-top shape.

What You Will Need:

  • Rubber gloves
  • 2 buckets of hot water
  • Ammonia cleaner
  • White vinegar
  • Rubbing alcohol
  • Several clean dry rags
  • Squeegee
  • Coffee filters
  • Ladder (if necessary)

What You Need to Do:

  • Mix ammonia cleaner in a bucket of water. In the other bucket, dilute 2 tablespoons of rubbing alcohol.
  • Wash the door and the window using the mixture from the first bucket.
  • Use the sudsy ammonia cleaner to wipe the window and door surfaces. Make sure to start at the top to prevent drip stains. Swipe only in one direction to avoid streaks.
  • Use the remaining water/rubbing alcohol mixture to rinse off suds from surfaces.
  • For a second round, rinse the door and the window with clean water, and using the squeegee, get rid of the excess water from the glass panes.
  • Finally, use the coffee filter to wipe the entire surface clean.

It is highly advised that you do your window cleaning on cloudy days as the sunlight may dry the solution out too fast and leave unsightly streaks on your windows and doors.

"Renewal was fantastic! They kept you in the loop from ordering to installation. They informed you at every step of the process of what was happening. The installers were kind, courteous, and professional. Everything was cleaned up after the installation. It was as if they hadn't been there except to see your beautiful new windows. I highly recommend them."

"3rd time using RBA for window replacement. Again, a very positive experience, the windows are great, the installation was done right, the professionalism was apparent from start to finish. Still have existing windows to be replaced and will definitely use RBA again to do it in the future."

"Renewal by Andersen was a good experience for us in replacement of our windows. From the initial meeting with the sales representative, Leslie, through the waiting period for manufacturing, and then to the installment process, our experience was excellent! Communication is key for me and we were kept informed and updated as our windows were being ordered and manufactured. Calls to update us on the installation process were welcomed and appreciated. They know how much is too much so they don't pester you with unnecessary contact. We love our new windows!!! Did I say that already??😂 We can tell a major difference in reduced Street noise and also the temperature at our windows. Excellent company, highly recommend!!"
