How to Keep Your Windows in Top Shape
The windows are one of the most important aspects of any home, which is why they will need to be kept in the best possible shape. While NewSouth windows come with lifetime warranties, it never hurts for homeowners to take some of the responsibilities on themselves in order to keep their windows looking great. The windows make a first impression, so they should be aesthetically pleasing.
As you go about your regular home maintenance routine, it is crucial that you not overlook the windows. Attending to your windows will improve their overall longevity, as well as actually enhancing the security of your property. There is a high amount of wear and tear on windows, from temperature and weather fluctuations to debris to accidents than can happen either inside or outside the house.
The windows are one of the most important aspects of any home, which is why they will need to be kept in the best possible shape.
The first thing every homeowner should do is physically inspect each and every window at least once every couple of weeks. That way, should there be a small hole or crack, it can be dealt with right away. The longer a problem is left to sit, the quicker the window will begin to deteriorate. Broken seals can be especially problematic in Florida during the height of hurricane season.
Of course, the windows should also be clean. Wiping down the wooden windows with a damp cloth is the most effective way to remove the dirt and grime that has built up over time. However, you will want to avoid using too much water, as the moisture could damage the frame. For vinyl and aluminum frames, a mild detergent and soft scrubbing brush will suffice.
