Dirty windows are no joke. If they aren’t regularly cleaned, it can lead to health issues and the formation and buildup of dirt, grime, mold, and mildew. In this month’s blog, we’ll discuss a few health reasons and benefits of maintaining a good routine of cleaning your windows.

Prevents mold

Did you know that mold can easily form on your windows and window sills? The combination of condensation and a warm, dark environment creates a situation in which mold can form and thrive. If you see any dark or brown spots forming on your window sill, it may be time to call in some professional help. It’s important to eliminate mold as fast as possible before it can spread and cause respiratory infections. Keeping a good routine of dusting and wiping your window sill will prevent dirt and mold build up.

Less Allergies

Windows are a place where dust and dirt can easily accumulate, especially in the corners, on the window tracks, and the window screen. When you open your windows during warm or hot seasons, the dust and pollen will blow into your home. This can make your allergies even worse, especially if you’re already sensitive to it. Regularly wiping down the corners and crevices of your window and window sill can make a huge difference. 

Less Insects

If you have an exterior window screen, insects often find their way on there to nest. Not to mention, the corners of your window sill are a common spot for spiders to web down and lay their eggs. Prevent potential bug bites and insects from entering your home by routinely dusting and wiping down your windows.
