Window washing is more than likely not part of your normal cleaning routine as it can be dangerous and hard to do! Clean windows with a clear view can almost seem unattainable except the couple times a year that you drag out your ladder, bucket and additional tools to get this cumbersome chore checked off of your to-do list. If your windows are old, dingy or damaged, it is time to consider replacements and check out some features that make them easier to clean as well.
Double-hung features: Double-hung style windows have two sashes that slide by each other allowing you to have either ventilation at the top or the bottom of your windows. Top ventilation can be beneficial if you want to circulate air differently or you are worried about pets scratching at your screens. These types of windows have tilt-in features, which means that you can clean the outside of your glass as easily as the inside by tilting in your window to clean it. A tilt-in feature is especially beneficial if you are working to clean your windows upstairs.
Sliding access: Sashes that slide horizontally can also allow access to clean the outside from the inside by being removed and lifted out. Removing window sashes from the interior of your home is another safe way to access your glass in order to get it sparkling clean.
Venting style: Casements or venting windows typically have sashes moving along the top and bottom rails and they are designed to allow for access to clean both sides and to have proper ventilation to let the breeze inside. Since casement windows are hinged on one side, you can easily swing them open when you want to shine up both sides of your windows.
