Autumn Window Cleaning and Care Checklist | Lifetime Windows & Doors in Portland OR

Brisk autumn weather has arrived in the Pacific Northwest. It’s such a beautiful time of year here. It’s also a great time to continue to work around your home or business to ensure your to-dos are completed before the cold winter days arrive. Fall is a great time to clean and care for your windows. Here are some tips on how to care for your windows this autumn. 


Remove screens on the windows and make sure they are tear-free. Once the screens are off, you can hose them down with soap and water. While you let them air dry, clean the windows inside and out with a residue-free glass cleaner. It’s also a good time to check the sills or tracks of the windows, wiping them clean of any dirt or other debris that has started to build up over time. 


Take some time to dust the blinds and clean the draperies on or around the windows. This will help with seasonal allergies and help the space feel cleaner and brighter. 


Are the seals around your windows tight? Worn seals are a major source of heat loss when the weather cools down. This translates to wasted energy and higher utility bills. 


The sunniest days of summertime are gone and overcast Pacific Northwest days are here to stay for a while. That’s why bringing in as much natural light to your home as possible is important. Adding a new skylight, a large picture window, or other smaller windows to dark rooms can lighten and enlarge the space. Extra daylight can even make you feel happier and improve your mental outlook in life!
