It can be difficult to know what to do and what not to do in the age of COVID-19. It may seem that the CDC and other government agencies are constantly changing their best practices. At Progressive Insulation & Windows we are constantly monitoring these changes and making decisions as new information comes in. Recently, we’ve noted that the CDC recommends that windows are opened daily. Keep reading to find out why. If it is time to replace your windows, contact (800) 500-6200 now to learn more.
How Opening Your Windows Can Help
Opening your windows lets fresh air and at the same time lets old air out. Without open windows, the air that’s been circulating in your home may have been in there for days or even weeks. As more and more people are spending the majority of their time indoors, this air can easily get stale – much faster than it normally would.
It does not matter how strict you are about social distancing – airborne germs can still move through your home. This can be a particular problem with COVID-19 as it does move through particles in the air. The CDC recommends that homeowners open their windows for a few minutes every day.
What to Do with Windows That Are Difficult to Open
We work with clients who would like to open their windows but find that their windows are difficult or impossible to open. There are many potential reasons for this. It could be something as simple as condensation having sort of “glued” the window to the frame. It may just need a good push.
In other cases, it could be that the windows are warped so badly that they no longer open. It could be that someone has painted over the windows and they are now painted shut. In these situations, it may be worth it to contact Progressive Insulation & Windows to learn about new windows and how they can help.
Our Showroom is Available by Appointment for Your Safety
Many clients assume that there are limited options to check out the available windows in the current COVID-19 pandemic. While this has certainly changed the way many companies are doing business – including Progressive Insulation & Windows – we have found a few unique options to help ensure you get what you need while also remaining safe.
The main thing we have done is to close our showroom except by appointment. This means that you can browse windows, doors, and more without coming into contact with the general public. Between each appointment we take the time to sanitize our showroom to keep you safe. Contact us at (800) 500-6200 to set up an appointment or to learn more.
