SPRING CLEANING TIPS FOR YOUR WINDOWS

After that long, cold winter, spring is finally here, and it’s now time for our annual spring cleaning rituals! One component of our homes that definitely needs to be cleaned, checked, and repaired after that long winter season is the windows.

Our windows are susceptible to damage, as they are always exposed to the elements outside. During winters, the window frames and the panes may have endured a heavy beating, due to the combination of subzero temperatures and the constant falling of snow, sleet, or even hail.

Now that the winter’s over, you can finally take care of your windows by doing some quick cleaning. To help you with this task, Renewal by Andersen® of St. Louis, the leading contractor that offers quality St. Charles, Missouri, energy-efficient windows, came up with this simple guide to cleaning the glass surface of your window:

What you will need:

  • Some clean, dry cloth
  • Sponge
  • Cleaning solution
  • Squeegee

Step-by-step guide:

Start by wiping away loose dirt with a soft, dry cloth. Dip a clean cloth or sponge in mild, soapy water, a solution of white vinegar and water, or a liquid window cleaner. Wipe the glass surface in a circular motion. Once each pane of a window has been wiped clean, use a squeegee to wipe away the cleaning solution, making sure to always start from the top of each window pane to avoid streaks. Also, wipe the squeegee’s rubber edge with every stroke. Dry window sills with a clean, dry cloth or a lint-free cloth. Make sure to clean windows on cloudy but dry days.

After cleaning, you should check your windows for signs of any damage. If you notice cracks, abrasions, or any other issues, you will need the help of experts to get your windows fixed or even replaced. Call Renewal by Andersen of St. Louis and we will assure you that your windows will be as good as new when we’re done fixing it.

"Everyone I worked with from setting up the initial appointment to the salesman to the installers to everyone who checked on us and kept us updated on the progress of the windows was courteous, professional, and responsive. There’s always someone who is willing to answer your question without jumping through hoops which is rare these days! The installers were on time, did a beautiful job, cleaned up the space better than I expected, and even helped me with some blinds I couldn’t remove and fixed my squeaky front door! I’ve already recommended Renewal by Anderson to friends!"
