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.

Reviews

"We had a large picture window and two side windows replaced. Everyone from the person who took our order to the installers were top notch. We got exactly what we wanted. Granted, we had to wait a few months, just like you do for everything these days, but we were told that up front. The windows were well worth the wait. We've replaced windows before by going to home maintenance stores. Don't waste your money on those. Our Renewal by Andersen windows look great, they operate like a dream, and are worth every penny. Quality through and through."
