All window frames and glazing need cleaning, yes it may seem like an obvious point, but it does have big benefits. Cleaning helps to keep everything moving as it should, cleaning them regularly will keep them at their best.

Inspect Locks And Hinges
Design to last as long as the window themselves, the locks and hinges will need to be inspected & maintained as well. Check if each window opens fully without sticking or any amount of force, if they do stick or it takes great effort to open them, consider greasing the hinges.
