Summertime with its long days of full of sunlight is the time of year when people most need to have spotlessly clean windows. But with the summertime heat in Las Vegas, keeping windows crystal clear and free of spots isn’t necessarily a simple thing. Unless done during the very early morning hours, the hot sun and baking temperatures can make it downright unsafe to clean windows while outdoors when the temperature is well above 100. Moving around a heavy ladder and climbing it on a hot day can wear down most people fast, and some might get dizzy as they climb that ladder to reach second-story and higher windows.
Casement Windows Help Greatly
Casement windows are the easiest to clean during the summertime because
they can be opened and removed from the inside. Although heavy if they are double- or triple-pane windows, it’s very easy to slide them to slightly beyond fully open, lift slightly and then pull back to remove them, clean them and replace them from inside the comfort of an air-conditioned home. Such windows always have at least two pieces so that they can slide and open easily for homeowners. Other windows require the use of a ladder to clean them on the outside when located on the second story or higher.
More Cleanings Needed During Summer
Even when located in a dry desert, more rain will fall during the summer than many other times of the year, particularly when the Arizona monsoon season begins in July and occasional storm systems penetrate deeply into the Desert Southwest from the Gulf of California. When that happens, strong storms and lots of rain can fall in the area, bringing with it high winds that batter windows with rain, sand and other substances. To counter it, homeowners need to clean their windows more often, usually at least once per month and many times twice, to keep their windows in the best possible shape.
Do you tend to look outside your windows more during the summertime?
