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
- Cleaning solution
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.
