What do you first notice in a house? A lot will say the floors, and some would say the structure of the house, but how about the windows? Sadly, many people overlook the importance of having clean windows. And if you manage the household, you’ve definitely cleaned the windows yourself. Having them regularly cleaned can make a huge difference. And we’re here to tell you why cleaning your windows is more important than you think.
As time passes, glass in windows become dull due to contaminants such as oxidation, hard mineral, acid rain, dust and grime among others that usually make the glass weaker causing it to break down.
Cleaning your windows regularly is more important than you think because it helps to remove contaminants and pollutants that stick to the glass. You don’t want dusty and stained windows, do you?
Most importantly, regularly cleaned windows also decrease the growth of allergens that can cause allergic reactions, skin and respiratory problems.
More reasons to regularly clean your windows:
You think that by having energy-efficient windows, you’re good to go, but you'll be surprised to hear that even dirt particles on your windows can lower their heating efficiency! Dirt that has built up on the surface and in the pores of your windows may begin reflecting some of the UV light away from your home, lowering the amount of sun that can enter and add warmth.
Not everyone is aware of this fact, but because glass is porous, dirt and microorganisms can build up inside the pores, and that results in reduced strength of your windows. Besides dirt, other things that may damage your windows and should be cleaned off regularly are:
an accumulation of minerals left behind from hard water
oxidation that occurs from window screens and/or metal window frames
accidental overspray from construction materials such as paint, mortar, chalk, drywall texture or other substances
One of the best ways to clean your windows is with an all-natural window cleaner.
