Operating Your Windows for Easy Cleaning and Maintenance

Home Maintenance

As a homeowner, maintaining and cleaning your windows is an easy way to ensure that they continue to function properly and look great. Fortunately, all Tilson homes are installed with tilt sash windows, making cleaning and maintenance a breeze. Watch this video to see how simple it is to properly operate your windows! 

To access your windows for cleaning or to remove the screen, there are three simple steps you need to follow. First, unlock the window and raise it approximately six inches. Secondly, using both hands, slide the two tilt locks toward the center of the window. The tilt locks are located on the far left and right of the window. This will allow the lower sash to tilt inward toward the home, giving you access to clean the glass and remove the screen if needed. Please note that you will need to support the window in this position to ensure that it does not accidentally fall.

When you're done with your cleaning or maintenance, place the window back into its original position by tilting it back upright and locking it into place. Make sure that the window is seated correctly in the frame before closing.
