Addressing Your Home’s Molded Window Panes
Molded window panes can impede clear, sharp views of the outside world and diminish your home’s curb appeal. A problem that can impact two of a window’s main functions might seem significant, but if you know how to handle it, you’ll have nothing to worry about.
How Mold Can Grow on Your Window Panes
Knowing what causes molded window panes can help you avoid the issue altogether. Mold grows when organic matter is present, and organic matter tends to collect on window panes in one of two ways. One is through the accumulation of dust, while the other occurs when moisture is trapped between two panes of a double- or triple-paned window.
So, an easy way to avoid having a molded window pane problem is to regularly clean and maintain your windows.
What to Do About Your Molded Window Panes
If it’s too late for mold prevention, you’ll need to take measures to eradicate the problem. First off, it’s important that you protect yourself from the mold, as exposure can put your health at risk. Use gloves, goggles, and a face mask to be safe, then you can clean the area. Wipe the area with a dry cloth before applying a mix of dish detergent and warm water. If that doesn’t rid you of the mold, you can use a plastic scraper.
Once you’ve removed the mold, scrub your window with a mixture of bleach and water and then let it sit for 15 minutes or so. After that, rinse the window and your problem will be taken care of.
