Spring Cleaning: The Perfect Window Cleaning Season

Spring weather is conducive for outdoor home maintenance activities, including window cleaning. Tackling this task helps in preparing them for the unpredictable summer weather. Renewal by Andersen® of Houston shares tips to achieve pristine, spotless windows this spring.

Spring Cleaning

Clean Windows Inside and Out

The past few months may have been rough on your windows, with dirt and dust lingering around the frames and sashes. Before this buildup affects their performance, find the right time this spring to clean them. Wash the window surfaces with cloth soaked in soapy water to remove the dust and dirt before rinsing.

Inspect Window Seals

Check if your window seals are still in good condition. If you can feel cold air coming through the sides of your windows, then chances are the seal has been broken or cracked. Have experts check your window and give you an overview of its condition. They may recommend replacing the entire window if it is too old and damaged

Replace Old or Faulty Weatherstripping

Weatherstripping is an integral part of your windows and should be checked regularly. Be on the lookout for general wear around the seals that could indicate more severe problems with the weatherstrip. If this is the case, you may need to replace it.

Change Screens

Replacing window screens can help keep your windows fresh and clean. If you see any discoloration, broken pieces, holes or other signs of wear, it might be time to change them.
