Cleaning your house it typically not going to be a fun experience, so anything that you can do to reduce the amount of housework you have to do is a great idea. One area in which you can cut down on your housework is your windows. Two window replacement options that can make housework easier are windows with built-in blinds and double-hinged windows:
Dealing with your window blinds can be a major hassle, especially when you consider how many things can go wrong with them. Not only do blinds seem to attract quite a bit of dust that you will need to clean, but they also seem to attract children and pets. In particular, pets seem to enjoy destroying blinds whenever they try to look outside or perch in your windowsill.
An easy way to get rid of all of those problems is to replace your windows with new ones that have built-in blinds. These types of windows will consist of two layers of glass with the blinds situated between them. The only parts of the blinds that are outside of the glass are the parts that you use to raise/lower and open/close the blinds.
This setup ensures that your blinds will not be destroyed by pets and children, while also preventing dust from building up on the blinds. Not only will this save you money on replacement blinds, but it will also remove dusting your blinds from your list of household tasks.
Double-hinged windows are windows that have been designed to make cleaning your windows much easier and safer. Without double-hinged windows, you will need to leave your home in order to wash the exterior side of the glass. If you have a house with multiple floors, then you will either have to leave the upper floor windows uncleaned, or attempt to hose them clean from the ground.
However, double-hinged windows eliminate all of that hassle by allowing you to open the window in such a way that it folds into the home. This will allow you to clean both sides of the glass without having to go outside of your home.
Speak to a window replacement contractor today in order to discuss the many window replacement options that are available to you. A double-hinged window will make cleaning both sides of the window glass much easier and more convenient, while windows with built-in blinds are great for reducing dust buildup and preventing damage to your blinds.
