Spring Cleaning: Tips for Window Cleaning
Did you know that windows are one of the most overlooked areas when it comes to cleaning? This means they can get pretty dirty, which affects your view and how much light enters your home.
A dirty window reflects poorly on the person who owns the house! Make sure your windows always look shiny by taking time to clean them regularly.
However, you might need a little help from a professional cleaner if you have a lot of them in your home—the professionals know what methods work best for each type of glass. No matter what kind of glass you have in your home, there’s an easy way to make sure they’re looking their very best all year round!
Window Cleaning Tips:
– It is easiest to wash windows during summer when they face the most direct sunlight. This will help to dry them more quickly, which reduces the risk of mold and mildew growth on your windows.
– Make sure you have a cloth or squeegee nearby to dry off any water that gets left behind by the cleaning products. For exterior glass, you can use a lint-free cotton cloth, dry paper towels, or specially designed window cleaners for this purpose.
– To clean interior windows without leaving streaks, cut a fresh lemon in half and dip it into some salt to create an abrasive paste. Scrub away at your windows with this mixture and then rinse them clean with warm water and wipe them down one last time with a damp sponge.
– If your windows are very dirty or if there’s a lot of dust and grime on them, you can use an all-purpose cleaning product made with ingredients such as vinegar, water, ammonia, and hydrogen peroxide. This is a good option for removing more stubborn smudges and dirt marks.
– It’s also important to remember that window frames, window sills, and window screens get pretty grimy over time—take some time to wipe these down using warm soapy water and your favorite household cleaner.
