Window Cleaning Tips

Cleaning windows is something that is incredibly important if you hope to make your property look its very best. What many people forget with regards to cleaning their windows is that this is one of the only ways that we can improve the look of a building from both the inside and the outside, and that it will also affect areas that aren't even near the windows due to the amount of light they let in when clean compared to how much is let in when dirty. Clean windows make your room seem larger, more spacious, cleaner and lighter – so it's well worth putting some time and effort into making them as clean as possible.

However for those who aren't window cleaners by trade, cleaning windows can be a sometimes challenging and difficult task – and it's highly frustrating to spend hours wrestling with a window only to find it's still covered in ugly streaks, or that it's just generally dull and unappealing looking.

So how do you go about making sure that your windows look at crystal clear and clean as possible? Here are some tips.

Choose Your Moment: The best time to clean your windows is when it is both warm and light. The reason for this is that you can this way ensure that the process is as pleasant as possible for you – and that you don't get very cold dipping your hand into the water bucket, or struggle to see what you're doing – and that the liquid you use doesn't freeze onto the glass and prevent you from being able to wash it thoroughly.

Be Safe: You need to make sure that you are as careful and safe as possible when cleaning your windows. This means making sure not to lean out of any high up windows and crane to reach the glass which is a sure-fire way to fall. At the same time it means making sure that you don't balance high up to clean tall windows.

Use the Right Products: If you are cleaning your windows then use window cleaning products. It sounds obvious, but you would be very surprised at how many people think they can get away with using just soap or other household cleaning products. If you don't use these, then you'll find that you end up with ugly soap suds on your glass and generally sticky windows. Make sure as well that you use a good ratio of product to water – as even glass cleaners can leave trails if you don't have enough water.

Clean Top to Bottom: Come up with a logical process to clean your windows quickly and cover the whole area. Make sure that this process goes top to bottom, or you will have drips and streaks down your glass after you've washed. Gravity is not the friend of the window cleaner.

Top Up Your Bucket: Over time it is important to make sure that you replace the water in your bucket and to top it up with fresh product. Fail to do this and you will collect dirt in there and begin fighting a losing battle.

Dry After: After you have washed everything, it's time to dry everything. Otherwise you can leave water marks which actually look dirty themselves.
