Your windows are an important part of your home that needs regular cleaning and maintenance for them to perform at optimal levels. As such, you want to prepare them for the incoming fall season. Here’s a five-step fall window cleaning checklist for you to follow.
1. Clean the Blinds and Shades
Your blinds and shades are the first things that come into contact with the window surface and are the first layer that regularly absorbs all kinds of dust and debris. As such, you’ll want to clean them to remove these pollutants that can cause respiratory problems in your home, especially with the cold months approaching. You can clean them by using a long vacuum to suck out the dirt, especially in hard-to-reach spaces.
2. Clean Drapes and Curtains
Much like your blinds and shades, drapes and curtains collect a lot of dust. This is the perfect opportunity for you to take them down and give them a thorough wash. You can toss them into the washing machine or a deep hand wash will do if they’re made of a sensitive material.
3. Clean Your Interior Glass
Just because your interior glass isn’t exposed to the outdoors, doesn’t mean that you don’t have to clean them. The air inside your home carries trace amounts of pollutants as well that attaches to your interior glass windows.
4. Watch Out for Leaks and Cracks
Your windows have to be airtight for them to function properly. Inspect them for any cracks or leaks because these can affect its energy efficiency. Leave it to our experts to carry out the repairs so that we can make your windows functional again.
5. Clean Outdoor Glass
Your outdoor glass needs more preparation to clean because of the grime, dust and dirt that has accumulated over the past few months. We recommend leaving the cleaning to a professional like us to ensure that your windows are absolutely ready for the new season.
