You should always take the time to open your windows several times a year, opening your windows helps you monitor the performance over time and it can also be a great indicator of possible foundation issues. Windows in your home are a means of egress, this means that in case of an emergency where your windows are the only means to escape, they should easily be open and not be obstructed on the inside of the home. Windows in your home should always be professionally cleaned and never pressure washed, pressure washing your windows can break the seal on the window panes, which can allow the vacuum between the glass to be broken causing the glass to become cloudy.
