Cleaning & Maintaining Windows

Knowing how to clean and maintain your windows is essential for ensuring you get the most of your home’s surrounding views at all times. If you are living in the heart of BC’s Okanagan, Adera Windows & Doors wants to help you make the most of your windows. That is why we want to offer some insights into maintaining the clarity and longevity of your windows.

Regular Cleaning

When performing regular cleaning on your home’s windows, start with a simple dusting to remove loose dirt and debris. Then use a mixture of water and a few drops of dish soap for the glass. Dip a soft sponge or cloth in the solution and gently scrub the windows. For a streak-free shine, wipe the windows down with a squeegee or a lint-free cloth.

Handle Frames With Care

While we often pay more attention to the glass, window frames can also accumulate dust and dirt. Wipe them with a damp cloth and a mild detergent. Ensure they are thoroughly dried to prevent moisture on the outside and inside, as well as mould growth.

Inspect for Damage

Inspect your windows for cracks, chipped paint, or damaged seals every few months. Addressing these early on can prevent more significant issues down the road.

Lubricate Moving Parts

If you have sliding or hinged windows, ensure the tracks and hinges are free from debris. Regularly lubricating these parts will help keep them operating smoothly well into the future.

Install Protective Screens

Window screens not only keep out insects but also protect against debris and dirt. They can reduce the frequency of window cleanings, especially during those windy days.

Seek Expert Help

At times, the task might seem overwhelming, or you may encounter stubborn stains and deposits. In such cases, consider consulting or hiring a professional to clean your home’s windows for you.
