Your home’s windows help protect its interior from the elements as well as keep your energy consumption low and manageable. And, with proper care and maintenance, your windows will be able to last well until the end of their life cycles. If you think, however, that normal cleaning methods should suffice for your own windows, that may not always be the case.
Paper Isn’t Ideal
You might often use paper towels and newspapers for scrubbing and drying the glass of your windows. This isn’t ideal, however, as they just break down and leave the lint behind. Instead, use a microfiber cloth to do the job as it will effectively grab dirt and dust while leaving behind no streaks and lint.
Use a Magic Eraser
When you’re popping out the screens for a more thorough cleaning, you’ll need to do a good and thorough wipe down to get rid of unwanted grime. Use an eraser pad for a quick scrub between deep cleanings.
Clean Your Blinds
During cleaning, it’s a good idea to address the treatments at the same time. If you have blinds installed, they’re magnets for pollen, dirt, dust and even pet hair. To clean your blinds properly, take a pair of tongs from the kitchen, and wrap microfiber cloths around each side securing them with rubber bands. Now you can efficiently clean each individual blind with a quick swipe.
Clean Your Windows Twice a Year
We recommend this not just because it’s good practice, but it’s also ideal to wash both the inside and outside of your windows during the fall and spring seasons. This is to effectively prevent buildup of tough mineral deposits from rain. Otherwise, putting off the cleaning will only make the stains deeper, and you’ll end up having to pay for more expensive and probably harsher chemicals to clean them off thoroughly.
