General maintenance of aluminum windows
Windows form an integral part of the beauty and functionality of the exteriors of every abode. They are designed to bring in sunshine and fresh air. Just like other parts of the home, windows need regular care and regular maintenance. If they are not maintained properly, problems like- rot and corrosion may occur. Therefore, first and foremost one should do is to inspect the windows regularly both inside and out as soon as they show signs of needing it. If the windows of an abode are made up of aluminum and have accumulations of dirt and debris, then it is quite obvious for one to know how to effectively clean them. But, before starting with the cleaning first ensure that the aluminum windows are opened for at minimum 10 minutes a day to purify the air. With some basic cleaning tools hired from our dedicated teams at Homecraft Windows operating in Cary, Apex, Chapel Hill, Clayton, Durham, Garner, Fayetteville, Fuquay Varina, Goldsboro, Hillsborough, Holly spring, Knightdale, Morrisville, Raleigh, Rocky Mount, Sanford, Wake Forest, Wendall, Zebulon and Wilson, your aluminum window frames will be impeccable in no time in the following 3 ways:
Step 1- Dusting the windows with a feather duster- Start at the top and work all the way down by simply running your dusting tool across the window frame in broad until all the dust has been successfully removed.
Step 2- Cleaning and drying– After having finished dusting the windows of your home, be ready to mix your cleaning solution inside of an empty spray bottle with 1 cup of warm water and 1/4 cup of ammonia. Then, securely seal the bottle and shake it vigorously until the cleaning solution takes shape. Having mixed your homemade cleaning solution, spray it onto your dirty window frames and allow it to sit for not more than 3 minutes. Now, take another empty spray bottle and fill it up with warm water. This is just for rinsing off your cleaning solution once the cleaning job is finished. After everything has been done, dry the frames with a dry non-abrasive washcloth.
Step 3- Powder coat chalking- Lastly, to reduce the effect of chalking which happens due to aging, just apply a vinyl restoring solution or light oil on the frame after the cleaning process to look good.
Now, you can enjoy your beautiful new windows for several years to come.
