Sliding windows are popular because of their gliding operation and sleek look. However, their ease of use is compromised once the window tracks are riddled with dirt and dust. Since they have plenty of mechanical parts, they need careful cleaning to keep them functioning smoothly.
Renewal by Andersen® of St. Louis, your top windows installation company, discusses how you can take care of your sliding windows.
Proper Window Track Cleaning
Dirt and grime often lodge their way into the window tracks on a daily basis. No amount of wiping could get all of it out. Fortunately, you can follow these three simple steps to ensure your window tracks are well-maintained: vacuum, brush and spray.
First, you should have a high-power vacuum cleaner with a tip nozzle to get as much stubborn dirt out. Afterward, take a small brush and wipe the hardened grime on the window tracks. And lastly, spray the window tracks with soapy water or mild cleaning agents before giving it one last wipe to restore your window tracks back to its pristine glory.
Proper Sliding Window Frame Maintenance
Energy-efficient windows rely on their window frames to keep drafts at bay. Low-quality window frames need constant cleaning to keep them looking fresh and damage-free. Without window frame maintenance, your windows frames are likely to deteriorate and rot.
We offer a window solution to make your window frame maintenance easier: our exclusive Fibrex® material. It is made of specialized glass fibers and coatings for less maintenance than the average window frame.
