Time to Spring Clean your Replacement Windows in Atlanta

Spring Cleaning for Replacement Windows in Atlanta

Well spring is finally here. Atlanta is very pretty in the spring with all of the dogwoods blooming, but, it can be quite a problem.
Keeping your replacement windows in Atlanta clean will help provide maximum performance if cleaned once a year.

Here are some tips to get your screens ready this spring for replacement windows in Atlanta;

Tip #1 – To clean window screens, remove them from the window frame, following the manufacturer’s instructions. Place the screens on a flat surface (such as the driveway) and use mild soap and water with a soft bristle brush to remove dirt and grime. Clean both sides of the screen and around the interior and exterior of the frame. Rinse off the unit with lukewarm water. Allow the screen to dry completely before replacing in the window.

Tip #2 – Just as with windows, never pressure wash screens because the force of the water can damage the units. Also, use extreme care when cleaning aluminum mesh, since it can be dented or creased if too much pressure is placed on the screen.

Tip #3 – If you discover a small hole or tear in your screen, purchase a patch kit from a hardware store or home center. Homeowners unhappy with the look of a patch (or who have a large gash in their screen) may choose to get the screen mesh replaced on the entire unit. Many cities have screen repair services where you can take your screen frame and have new mesh added to replace torn mesh.
