How to Maintain Your Windows Effectively

With any property that you own, you will need to spend a certain amount of time on upkeep and maintenance in order to ensure that it stays in peak condition. Windows are in the same bracket and although they have a long-life span in general, maintaining them during this period will ensure they live for as long as they can whilst ensuring they continue to look brand-new and stay as an asset for your property.

Today we are going to explore some helpful tips to maintain and clean your windows in order for them to continue looking great and to maximise the lifespan of the product whilst reducing the risk of damage.

It is best that you check and clean your windows every six months and every three months for properties that are based in seaside locations or coastal areas as they are more likely to be affected by the weather.

The most vital part of the maintenance process is the cleaning of the glass, this is a delicate procedure which must be done with care so the glass doesn’t get scratched and permanently damaged. We recommend using a professional window cleaner to clean your windows as they will have access to specialist equipment and cleaning products to ensure the job is completed to the highest of standards meaning your glass is clean and performing to its maximum potential.

You should undertake a thorough inspection of your windows every 6 months. Check the condition of the window frame, the glass and the seal and if you spot any damage or something that doesn’t look quite right contact us and we will be happy to come and check it over to ensure that the window is functioning to its full capacity.

You should re-paint window frames every three to four years depending on wear and tear. It helps to protect your windows from the weather and maintains their beautiful appearance. Always apply paint onto windows that have been well cleaned and do not paint over moving parts as the window could potentially get stuck.

If you have damaged window frames, cracked or broken glass then it needs immediate attention and a swift fix in order to prevent injury and energy loss. Regularly maintaining your windows will keep your home looking good and keep your windows from having further issues in the future, maximising their lifespan in the process.
