3 Great Solutions for Common Window Cleaning Problems

by | Sep 6, 2017 | Blog

Keeping the windows clean is a chore most homeowners usually neglect. Here you’ll find answers to the most irritating window problems you might already be experiencing.

When mildew grows on your windows
Remove the window and clean or replace the frame and fix the leaks. If mold has gotten into the window frame, you will have to have the window removed and the frame cleaned or replaced.  Remove all wet insulation or framing and thoroughly dry any framing that’s left in place. Then, seal up the leaks around the window and frame to prevent the problem from reoccurring. Source: Modernize

If your window always streaks after cleaning
Even if you do exactly the right things, you can still end up with a streak or three. In that case, the simplest solution is to finish the job with a quick buff. A chamois or a microfiber cloth is best, although a regular rag will do. Keep it dry, and just buff over the glass when you finish cleaning it. You’ll find those streaks just disappear. As always, keeping up with the job makes it a whole lot easier. The less dirt and grime your windows accumulate, the less time you’ll spend cleaning them — a quick vinegar spritz, newspaper swipe and you’re on your way. Source: Home.HowStuffWorks

If your windows get dirty unusually fast
Change the filter in your heating and cooling system. Modern airtight homes trap more dust, pollen, dander, and other particles inside than ever before. While furnace and air conditioner filters extend the life of your appliances, they also help trap that dirt. Filters should be changed every month or two, or anytime you can’t see through the filter when you hold it up to a light. Cleaning your air conditioning filter regularly is also an inexpensive way to keep your house cooler. Source: RD
