The most seemingly simple household chores are also some of the most challenging to get right. Cleaning windows is one of them — it may look easy, but even the most accomplished spring cleaners find themselves overwhelmed by the task.
Fortunately, certain window types are designed to make cleaning much easier on homeowners. If you’re getting ready to install new or replace existing windows, these two window styles both increase curb appeal and make it simpler to keep them looking great inside and out.
Getting and maintaining your Kansas City home’s windows is a big job. Happily, most of today’s window manufacturers consider “easy maintenance” when designing windows. Zen Windows offers slider and double-hung windows whose easy-to-clean aspects make them the ideal choice for just about any style of home.
Tilt sashes make cleaning double-hung windows incredibly fast and easy, as you simply need to:
Then you clean each section of glass with your chosen cleaning solution and use a lint-free cloth or squeegee to wipe off the cleaner. Then return the window sashes to their original positions.
While double-hung windows are extremely popular for traditional houses, many homeowners choose sliding windows for modern or contemporary style homes. Sliders also have two sashes, but they slide by each other horizontally.
Cleaning tilt-in sliding windows is just as easy as cleaning double-hung models.
You can now easily clean the inside and outside of your sliders.
As you can see, double-hung and sliding windows that tilt in are easier to clean than traditional models. And because it’s so simple, you can clean your windows more often. You won’t need to hire a professional service or use a ladder yourself to reach windows on upper floors.
Simple tips to remember when cleaning your windows include:
You’ll soon be on your way to getting the maximum amount of natural light and enjoying the lush outdoor views in your Kansas City home!
