Keeping your windows in good shape is an achievable goal. You just need to keep them on your radar. For instance, windows need to be cleaned at least once or twice a year. Unless you set up a specific reminder, it’s easy to forget about the cleanings.  

You should also remember to open the windows occasionally. You want to make sure that they’re still functioning.
