_____________________________________________________________

***CAUTION***

Never use abrasive soaps, sharp or metallic objects, razor blades, steel wool, squeegees,
high-pressure washers, ammonia or powder-based cleaners.

THESE CAN DAMAGE THE GLASS, LOW-E COATINGS, & FINISHES

_____________________________________________________________

GLASS
 Use a mild liquid window cleaner and a soft, dry cloth to gently wipe the glass surfaces.
 Clean the interior and exterior in opposite directions. This way if you see a streak, you’ll know which side it is on.  Example: Clean the interior using horizontal movements and the exterior using vertical movements. If you see a horizontal streak, you’ll know it’s on the inside of the glass.
 To avoid streaking, avoid cleaning glass in direct sunlight.

SCREENS
 Use a damp soft, non-abrasive sponge or soft cloth to gently wipe any debris from the screens.
 A mild soap solution (dishwashing soap is useful) diluted with warm water can be used if needed.
 If your vacuum has a dusting brush attachment this can be used to gently vacuum any loose
debris or dust.
 To avoid tearing your screen use limited force when cleaning.

FRAME, TRACK, AND SILL
 Vacuum dirt, pet hair and debris from the sill or track prior to washing.
 Use a damp soft, non-abrasive sponge or soft cloth to gently wipe any debris from the Little girl washing back patio doorframe.
 A mild soap solution (dishwashing soap is useful) diluted with warm water can be used if needed.
One of the benefits of buying replacement windows from AHT Wisconsin Windows is the ability to clean the exterior of your windows from inside your home. Below are some tips to help with exterior cleaning:

DOUBLE HUNG WINDOWS
 Lift the lower sash at least 4-6 inches prior to pressing the release buttons. This will ensure the
sash does not rub against or crack the bottom frame.
 When tilting the sash in and out for cleaning, hold from the center vs. the sides. This will help
keep the window in alignment.

SLIDING WINDOWS
 Open the window to the halfway open point, then lift up while tilting the lower portion towards you to release the sash.
