Cleaning windows is just a given when you have a home. If you don’t clean them, then your home looks uncared for.
The worst thing is, is that you can’t hide dirty windows. They can be seen from both the inside and the outside of the house, and with the light shining through them the dirt is projected for the world to see.
So, unless you plan on removing all the windows from your home, you are going to have to accept the fact that you are going to have to clean them. What you don’t have to accept though, is that you are going to have to clean them all the time.
Keeping Windows from Getting Dirty
There is no way to keep your windows from ever getting dirty. But, there are ways to decrease how dirty they get, and if you can keep them from getting really dirty then you can go longer in between cleanings.
The best way to keep your windows from getting really dirty is to keep children and animals away from them as much as possible. Children leave fingerprints, face prints, dirt, food, and much more all over your windows. Animals leave nose prints, paw prints, droppings (outside birds), and even full body prints (birds flying into windows).
You can prevent your windows from being subjected to all of the above contact by keeping furniture or anything easy to climb on away from your windows on the inside of your home. On the outside, don’t put bird feeders near your windows, don’t keep anything that could be climbed on under your windows, and remove anything that birds can perch on from above your windows.
The more contact you can prevent from animals and children, the fewer times you will have to clean your windows each year.
Sounds too good to be true, doesn’t it?
Not with our high-performance Low-E4 glass. This special glass has a titanium dioxide exterior coating that releases dirt from the glass when the sun shines on the coating. Then the next time that it rains, the dirt is then simply washed away.
You also won’t have to worry about water spots, because the titanium dioxide coating also makes the glass dry faster when it’s wet; which decreases water spots on the window by about 99%.
Now, the glass on this window won’t clean up everything, but it is definitely going to decrease the number of times you would normally have to clean your windows.
