Cleaning vinyl windows may seem like an annoying, mundane task, but it’s an important part of owning a window. Regularly checking and cleaning your windows can be very helpful and potentially save you from having to completely replace a window. How exactly do you clean a window?
Cleaning vinyl windows with a mixture of soap and water is the perfect way to gently remove dirt, dust and any other corrosion. You can use your fingers to gently rub the glass or a soft cloth to remove dirt and grime. However, it’s not recommended to use any hard and/or abrasive sponges or towels since these types of cleaning tools can scratch the glass. You should also avoid using chemicals to wash windows as chemicals can also ruin the glass and coatings.
It’s recommended that homeowners do not clean their vinyl windows in direct sunlight, and instead, clean their windows on cloudier days or evening or early morning hours when the sun is not at peak. You may also notice that if you’ve ever put tape on your windows that it was difficult or even impossible to remove. Whether you’re hanging decorations or other things on your windows, it’s important to avoid putting any kind of tape on the glass since the adhesive can melt into the glass and become impossible to remove. If you are able to remove the tape, the glue may damage the area of the glass.
While cleaning is an extremely important part of maintaining your windows, whether your windows are vinyl, wood or even aluminum, it’s equally as important to check your windows for any breakage or repairs needed every so often. Periodically checking weather stripping and checking to see if your windows have any cracks can help you in the long run if you want to avoid leaks and full replacement windows. It’s always better to be safe than sorry.
