For those of you that didn’t already know, we are Premier Windows – with an extensive amount of experience amassed in the world of double-glazed windows, you can be sure that we are well-versed in the art of window maintenance. Below, you can find our tips and tricks for ensuring that your windows remain looking first-class.
Utilise household cleaning products
When you initially start focussing your efforts on preserving the high-quality visuals of your windows, it is vital that you ensure that you have the right equipment in your possession. Namely, this should include a clean sponge and, more-importantly. Some household cleaning spray. After application, you should wait a few minutes, as this will allow the chemicals to soak in and fight any stains that might-have developed. Once you have paused, you can simply wipe-clean your glass panes, and stand-back in admiration of the sparkle that your windows once-again have.
Don’t neglect the frames
It is understandable that your first point-of-call, when cleaning your windows, will be the panes of glass; however, it would be foolish for you to completely disregard the importance of the frames. As time goes by, the weather can damage these, and any cracks that appear need to be dealt with swiftly. In particular, you should be mindful of water-deposit build-ups, as these can drastically reduce the structural integrity of your frames.
Target the window tracks
Almost-all windows that have been sold in the past few years possess a track at the bottom – the reason for this is to allow them to smoothly-and-seamlessly open as-and-when you want. Unfortunately, this is where dirt can easily accumulate, which can make for rather-unhygienic living conditions. Before you put down your sponge, it might be worthwhile taking a closer look at these tracks, and ridding yourself of the dust and debris that is hiding here. If you fail to do this, it won’t take long for the problems to start piling up.
Check them on a routine basis
Arguably one of the main issues that homeowners run-into in relation to their home’s windows, is that they find the problems after that have started to fester. After a certain point, it becomes nigh-on impossible to restore them to their former glory, meaning that you are forced to conduct damage-limitation. If this is a scenario that you would like to avoid, your best-bet is to complete an in-depth check of your windows, at the very least, once a month.
