Sliding Window / July 14, 2018 / Tearlach DuLin
Sliding window locks are often called vent locks as they allow the window to be locked slightly open for ventilation. The recommended gap is 100mm but never have more than 150mm. The theory is that if a head can get through a window a person can squeeze through. The venting position is not as secure as when the window is shut and locked. Therefore you should only leave your windows locked open you are at home.
You then use a dry non lint cloth or those absorbable cloth used in cleaning cars to dry your window. Dont forget to also clean the track where the window is and the area around it. Place Your Windows Back. After the cleaning and drying is done you need to put them back together. Put your windows back following a reverse order of how you removed them. You need to make sure that the sliding windows are reinstalled securely and there will be no chances of them being accidentally removed.
Remove The Windows. You can easily remove the windows by sliding it open past the lift blocks and then placing your hands on either side of the window and lifting it out of its track. You can then remove the window towards you. Do the same with the other window and place them in a safe area. Proceed With The Washing. Wash them using a window cleaning solution and a nonlint cloth. Make sure to thoroughly clean the glass and remove any stains that you will find. Start from the upper left corner of your window glass and proceed downward using an Sshaped motion for wiping the window.
