My buyer clients know that in addition to my magical smelling powers, I also have an eagle eye for clues that tell us a lot about a home. One of my favourites is grimy and moldy window tracks. Ick. Sometimes, this is merely an indication of inadequate home maintenance but other times, it may be a clue that there is moisture, and therefore potential mold in a home.
We just recently bought an income property and well, let’s say filthy would be a bit of a compliment. Have you ever heard of it taking over 3 hours to clean one window set and track? Alas, it is also feeling a bit like an early spring already so you may be thinking about your windows. Don’t stop at the glass planes. Do the tracks too.
In regard to simple cleaning, it’s really not that hard and this website will show you an easy way to get it done.
