Window cleaning

Now that spring has finally sprung, families across Northern Oklahoma and Southern Kansas are throwing open their windows and getting to work on spring cleaning! Although they are only a small part of your house and may not appear to need that much attention, your vinyl siding and windows are constantly exposed to the elements and require specific cleaning processes.

Here are just a few ways to properly maintain your vinyl siding for years to come.

Tip #1 – Use the Right Cleaner

Vinyl is a tough and sturdy building material, but it is ultimately a chemical creation and is susceptible to chemical damage.

When preparing to clean your vinyl windows or siding, avoid using solvents or abrasive cleaners, and instead use a simple mix of soap and water.

Vinegar and water is another useful cleaning option. It’s environmentally-friendly, so it won’t damage the plants and greenery beneath your windows.

Tip #2 – Manage the Moisture

If your community experiences high levels of moisture and humidity, your vinyl siding and windows might be at risk for mold and mildew.

Mold and mildew can severely impact the air quality of your home, so be sure to use the right cleaners and control the humidity of your home with the help of dehumidifiers.

Tip #3 – Do NOT Paint Your Fixtures

Painting or varnishing your vinyl might seem like a quick solution to scuffs and damage, but it can actually do more damage in the long-term.

A new coat of paint for dirt or damage is unnecessary, and any chemical makeovers can ultimately harm the vinyl and void your warranty.

Tip #4 – Give it a Good Scrub

When dirt, sand, or leaves get caught inside your vinyl windows, they can grind away at the vinyl material and become embedded in the tracks.

Prevent this damage by scrubbing inside every nook and cranny of your windows. Make sure to do this at least twice a year to remove any build-up and keep your windows sliding smoothly.

Vinyl window frames and siding are wonderful to look at, but homeowners must take great care when cleaning or maintaining them.
