How Often Should Window Tracks be Cleaned?
It is recommended to clean the tracks of your window every fall and every spring. During a professional window cleaning, this area will also be deep cleaned.

How to Clean Your Window Track
Usually there is a heavy amount of black dirt, dead bugs, and small leaves caught in the track. Start by vacuuming the large debris.

Vinegar naturally kills bacteria and can be used as a pet-friendly, child-safe way to clean window tracks. Next, use vinegar and paper towels to clean the larger areas. Once you have wiped up most of the visible dirt, use q-tips dipped in vinegar to get the smaller, harder to reach areas. After you have completely rid the track of any visible dirt or condensation, wipe the area with warm water and a paper towel. This will help reduce the scent of any remaining vinegar and any remaining dirt.
