How to Maintain Your New Windows

Upgrading your windows is a huge deal, especially when it comes to your home’s curb appeal and energy efficiency. This is why homeowners should keep them in good shape at all cost. 3JM Exteriors, Inc., a leading general contractor in the area, shares some ways to keep your replacement windows in tip-top condition.

How to Maintain Your New Windows

Clean Like the Experts

You need a few things to clean your windows like a pro. For large windows, prepare a bucket of warm water with a few drops of dish soap. This will remove the dirt from the window. Use a squeegee to remove the liquid solution and leave your windows streak-free.

Use Microfiber Duster

Floor-to-ceiling windows are challenging to maintain. With the help of a telescoping microfiber duster, you can clean hard-to-reach areas. Spray some water to the textile and scrub the glass. The soft microfiber cloth won’t  leave any scratches on the glass that can compromise the window’s charm.

Wipe the Glass Using Eyeglass Cloth

To make your replacement windows as clear as your eyeglasses, use the cloth that comes with your eyewear. You can also buy these textiles from local stores and use them to wipe away spots or smudges that obstruct your windows. This quick tip will give you crystal-clear glass every time.

Ditch the Newspaper Trick

Using newspaper to clean your windows is one of the oldest tricks in the book. This window cleaning method, however, leaves an oily film that may eventually turn into a dark smudge on your new windows. Stick to using microfiber cleaning material for cleaning your windows instead of newspapers. Microfiber won’t streak or leave micro scratches on the glass.

Take Time to Clean the Screens

Dust gathers on your window screens over spring and summer. Instead of washing the screens, use a large-looped microfiber cloth to pull the dust off the screens.
