HandymanWire - Cleaning Tips




Cleaning Windows

Lightly Soiled Windows:

1 cup of vinegar
1 gallon warm water

Extremely Dirty Windows:

1 tablespoon household ammonia
3 tablespoons denatured alcohol or vinegar
1 quart warm water

To save money and get good results dry and polish glass with crumpled newspaper-but do not use this method on plastic glazing.

Homemade Cleaner

For a window cleaner you can add 2 tablespoons of vinegar to 1 quart of warm water. Clean away!

Cleaning Plexiglass and Other Plastic Surfaces

Stick with the polishes that clean and leave an antistatic coating on the plastic. Wash area first to get any dust particles off the surface. Use lots of circular motions with a wet cloth!

Cleaning Walls

Painted Interiors

Clean with a mild solution of detergent and water, rinse. If uncertain about washability of paint, check on an inconspicuous place.

Glazed Tile/Brick

Wash with soap and water solution. Remove discoloration with non-abrasive household cleaner.

Wood Paneling

Clean with commercial wood cleaner; treat with linseed oil or special wax.

Mildew

To remove the fungus that causes it; use 3 tbsps. TSP and 1 ½ cups household bleach in 1 gallon water. (Wear rubber gloves.) Allow several days before painting of papering.

Cleaning Solutions: Hot and Cold

Hot is not always better----do not use hot water on wood or cork. Hotter water means those water molecules are moving around quickly and aggressively, and breaking down the dirt better and faster. Heat helps remove grease or wax faster also.

Floors

Hardwood

Mop or vacuum and periodically use a paste wax. If excessively soiled, clean with mineral spirits or commercial floor cleaner, then wax.

Linoleum, Asphalt, Vinyl, Vinyl-Asbestos and Rubber

Sweep, mop, or vacuum. Clean with diluted detergent or recommended floor cleaner. Wax to protect. Use detergent or ceramic-time cleaner on tile.

Unpainted concrete

Clean with 4 to 6 tbsps. Of washing s...

HandymanWire - Windows Questions and Answers

Alcan Vinyl Windows: Condensation btwn Panes

Does anyone know anything about vinyl windows? Specifically, moisture has gotten between sealed insulating glass panels and the windows are only 7 years old. I would like to avoid replacing them every 5 years or so. Any suggestions as to how to get rid of the moisture and seal them up again?

Find a number for the manufacturer and complain. they may (well there is always a chance) replace them for you. There is no way for you to get rid of the moisture and reseal the panes. And you are right 7 years is too soon for them to fail. I know that Anderson Windows has replaced ones that failed that way after quite a few years, so it is worth trying. It is definitely a defect that caused them to fail.

Storm Window Condensation

I have looked on your website and haven't found this exact problem. I have just bought an older home which has old, painted double hung wood windows inside & aluminum storm windows on the outside. I live in Colorado which is a fairly dry climate but I am still getting a lot of condensation on the inside of the storm windows (between the two sets of windows). This happened a little bit even in the summer, but is apparent even more now that it is getting colder. I have lived in Colorado my entire life, and never really had a problem in other homes I've lived in, unless it was extremely cold outside. First of all, is this condensation a particularly bad thing? If so, what is the exact problem, too much ventilation or not enough? Other than replacing all the windows, is there any quick (inexpensive)solution?

It is a problem but a long term sort. The condensation will wet and rewet the wood over and over a period off time cause the sills to rot. The problem of condensation BETWEEN the inner and outer windows is caused by leaky inside windows. The humidity indoors travels into this space and condenses on the cold outer pane. T...
