Keep Your Windows Crystal ClearFebruary 21st, 2012

Although we have been spared some of the below zero temperatures this winter, cold weather still can be damaging to our windows!
By just taking a few precautions however, you can maintain the original beauty of your windows for years. Most importantly, you want to keep the moisture away from windows & sills. In the winter, the cold air outside & warm air inside creates the build up of moisture or condensation on your windows. The most important thing you can do is open all window coverings in the mornings before leaving home. Bathrooms are the worst! Steamy showers bring the humidity levels up so keep the bath fan on for at least 15 minutes after showers and be sure to open the bathroom blinds before leaving.
