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.

"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!!"
