When you install replacement windows into your Oceanside, CA home, they look great. They’re a valuable investment and you want to make them last. Plus, they look so nice when they’re first installed that you’d really like to hold on to that appearance for as long as you can. How do you keep those replacement windows as clean as you can? Here are a few tips to help them shine like new for many years.
Tip 1: Install Window Coverings
If you want the window glass to stay clean, it might be a good idea to put window coverings over the replacement windows. That way, when you aren’t around, you can close the covers and prevent dust from building up. Plus, if you have pets or children and you close them, you can prevent nose prints and fingerprints from occurring.
Tip 2: Wipe Them Down
New replacement windows won’t take much maintenance, but it’s always best to stay ahead of the dirt and dust that can build up over time. If you get vinyl windows, all you will have to do is wipe them down inside and out to keep the dust and dirt away. Even if you get wood windows, wiping them down gently every week or so to avoid too much dust is a good idea.
Tip 3: Get Good With the Glass
Cleaning glass takes a special talent that not everyone has, but someone in your family likely does. They may have a new job! Figure out who does the best at cleaning windows without streaks and name them the official glass cleaner in the family. Some like to have a special glass cleaning cloth while others use newspaper for a streak-free outcome. The glass doesn’t take much work, but when you clean it off every few weeks, it’ll keep your home looking nice for the long haul.
Tip 4: Stay Up On Repairs
When you have new replacement windows Oceanside, you likely won’t have to do anything in way of repairs any time soon. But if someone throws a ball that cracks the glass or something happens at some point down the road, it’s best to fix those replacement windows as soon as possible to keep them looking as nice as possible.
