Spring Cleaning Made Easy: Tips for Cleaning & Maintaining Your Home Windows & Doors


Home maintenance is crucial for preserving property value and avoiding unexpected surprises. As the holiday season ends and we find ourselves with some extra time at home, it's the perfect opportunity to show our houses some spring-cleaning love! Whether you have new or older windows and doors, regular maintenance will help keep them looking and performing at their best. In addition, regular maintenance will reduce your workload over time as accumulation will be significantly less. Here are 5 easy steps for spring window and door maintenance — Contact B.T. Window & Doors LLC to enhance the quality of your home and your life, without the hassle.

1. Establish a Regular Cleaning Routine:

Set up a regular cleaning routine for your windows and doors to maintain their appearance and functionality. Use a glass cleaner to wipe down window and door surfaces regularly to remove dust and dirt. Use a soft cloth or sponge to avoid scratching and remember to clean the frames and tracks as well to remove any buildup of dirt and debris.

2. Inspect for Damage:

Before spring arrives, take the time to inspect your windows and doors for signs of damage or wear and tear. Look for cracks, leaks, or loose seals that may have developed over the winter months. If you find any damage, don't hesitate to contact us for a free estimate. Addressing these issues early can prevent further damage and ensure that your windows and doors function properly.

3. Check and Lubricate Hardware:

Inspect the hardware on your windows and doors, such as hinges, locks, and handles, for signs of rust or corrosion. Clean and lubricate them as needed to ensure smooth operation. This will help prevent friction and extend the lifespan of your hardware.

4. Seal Gaps and Drafts:

Examine the seals and weatherstripping around your windows and doors for any gaps or drafts. Replace any worn or damaged seals to prevent air leaks and improve energy efficiency. This will help keep your home comfortable and reduce heating and cooling costs.

5. Trim Overgrown Vegetation:

Trim back any overgrown vegetation, such as bushes or trees, that may be blocking or rubbing against your windows and doors. This will help prevent damage to the frames and ensure that your windows and doors can open and close properly.
