Care for Dual Pane Windows

Seal Protection

Water is public enemy number one for dual pane windows. Seals can fail for a couple of reasons, but they’re most prone to fail when exposed to consistent moisture. If you live in a damp environment, then constant moisture might just be the order of the day.

If you set your windows into wood, there may be a solution. Some experts recommend coating seals with a high-quality, latex paint. Doing so can prevent water from directly affecting the seal, extending the lifespan of your windows.

Water in the Works

If seals do fail, then you’ll be left with a compromised cell (space between panes). A wet cell will fog up quickly, as water condenses and evaporates between the glass, leaving you with blurred, impossible-to-clean windows.

Unfortunately, fogginess is just the tip of the iceberg. If left unchecked, that damp, buffered environment is an incredibly inviting home for mold or mildew. You can quickly wind up with something nasty growing in a hard-to-reach spot.

If the Worst Should Happen

Don’t hesitate if you notice any signs of leaking seals. The sooner you address a damaged dual pane window, the easier it will be to repair. For most homeowners, this means calling in a professional. Some repairmen specialize in removing condensation from cells, then resealing them. And, of course, the company responsible for installing your window will likely be more than happy to repair or replace.
