Your home windows deserve some time and attention to ensure they continue to function properly and maintain their beauty. Many homeowners think the only thing home windows need is a good cleaning every once in a while. While they do need that, they also need a little more attention.
Here are some important maintenance tips for your home windows:
- Clean & lubricate the tracks – The tracks of windows are notorious for collecting dust, dirt, and bugs. Over time, the debris often found in window tracts will cause your windows to not operate smoothly. An oil-free lubricant can be beneficial to the tracks of windows to keep them operating smoothly.
- Caulking – Inspecting the windows for needed additional caulking is good preventative care. Windows that are lacking caulking can lead to leaks and water damage.
- Inspection – At a minimum, you should inspect the windows of your home or business once a year. Annual window inspections can discover damages that if left alone may lead to bigger and more costly problems down the road.
- Check the fit – Over time, home windows are exposed to a lot of things that can cause damage and lead to them not fitting properly. From weather to everyday usage, home widows can change over time. When windows don’t fit properly, they tend to not function properly as well.
