Caring for casement windows involves a few simple steps so you can be sure they remain in good working order. Regular casement window care also means your windows will offer increased energy efficiency and improved home security.
Regularly cleaning your casement windows will help maintain their appearance, best of all, it will also improve their energy efficiency. To clean your windows use a soft cloth or sponge and a mild soap solution to rinse the glass and frames. You should avoid using harsh chemicals or abrasive scrubbers, as these can damage the window.
2. Lubricate the hinges
Over time, the hinges on your window might become stiff, leading them to be harder to open and close. This is natural, as the product ages, but there is a way to keep them operating smoothly. To improve the functioning of your hinges you can apply a silicone-based lubricant to the hinges. This will reduce friction, making it easier to open and close your casement windows.
3. Check the weatherstripping
The weatherstripping around your casement window helps to seal the window, preventing draughts from entering your home. If the weatherstripping becomes worn or damaged it can let in draughts, creating a chill in your home, and reducing the energy efficiency of your property. You should regularly check the weatherstripping on your casement windows to keep an eye on this.
4. Inspect the hardware
The hardware on your casements, for example, the locks and handles, should be inspected regularly to ensure it is in good working order. If you notice any issues with the hardware you should have it fixed immediately to ensure your home stays secure.
