As we’re quickly approaching Summer, many homeowners make their preparations for a deep cleaning throughout the house. From top to bottom, they sweep, mop, wash, and trash anything that has overstayed its welcome. It’s a fresh start towards enjoying your home all year long, giving you the breath of fresh air you need.
As you’re making your way through your home, you might notice that your windows are in need of significant cleaning. There’s that pesky condensation that seems to constantly form. Seeing your windows “sweating” isn’t typically a cause for concern as it’s just their way of showing you that they’re doing their job. With that said, condensation forming in between your window panes may mean that there’s cause for concern.
What Exactly Causes Condensation On My Windows Inside?
The most common cause of condensation forming on windows is when one side is a significantly different temperature than the other side. This can be from excessive cooling during the scorching summer months of South Florida, or turning the heater up a smidge on those chilly cold front days. If you find your windows are foggy, there’s a good chance there’s a difference in temperature. Simply wipe your windows down, and they’ll be good as new!
What Exactly Causes Condensation On My Windows Outside?
Similarly to that of your windows inside, condensation forming on the outside of your windows is usually caused by a difference in humidity and a significant change in external/internal temperature. This can lead to you being unable to see outside. We strongly recommend spraying your windows down with a water-repellant to help assist your windows in defending against consistent exterior window condensation.
What Exactly Causes Condensation In Between My Windows?
If you have condensation forming in between your windows, your home is likely suffering. Condensation between windows is a sign of underperforming windows where the window seal itself is failing. Older windows were filled with an inert gas such as argon that would help protect your home, however as time wears on this gas escapes slowly but surely.
Eventually, you’re left with a window system that effectively has no window seal, and condensation forming on your windows. This is a prime target for mold growth, as humidity becomes trapped, allowing mold spores to thrive. Mold can and will become a health hazard for you and everyone else living in your home.
