Cleaning windows can be a daunting task for many because they are unsure how to clean windows. Luckily, it takes just a bit of planning and a little elbow grease. Washing the windows is a great way to spruce up the exterior of your house, however we advise to only clean the windows on your house that not at a height. Please leave this job to the professionals. Here are a few steps for cleaning windows:
Choose a cloudy day
We don’t get many sunny days here in Ireland so don’t want to waste a sunny day cleaning away the dirt and grime on your windows. One of the best pieces of advice for how to clean windows is to pick a cloudy day. The absence of sunlight will help to minimise the chance of streaks because heat makes window cleaning solution evaporate faster than you can wipe it off. Sunlight rays also enable you to better see—and better clean—the windows. Makes sense right?
Remove dust and dirt from windows
No window washing job is complete without using your hoover first. Dust and dirt can accumulate onto and inside the sills of your windows, and once that gets wet, you’ll be left with muddy streaks to clean up. That’s why an essential step in cleaning windows properly is to hook up the hoover first, many hoover come with added attachments to help you do this. While you’re at it, use the hoover to suck up dust, cobwebs and other nasties that have gathered at the window. Then wipe off any dirt and cobwebs with a wet cloth to reduce smears.
Clean outside windows
There’s one crucial step that many people skip when learning how to clean windows: an exterior hose-down. Close all your windows and use a garden hose to spray the outside. You’ll remove the first layer of dirt and make the rest of the process a lot easier. sing a new clean and dry cloth clean the indoor glass panes with a window cleaner or some vinegar and water. Use a spray bottle and spray an even and light layer over the entire window, using your clean cloth (lint free, for best results) – them wipe horizontally and vertically to ensure a streak free result.
Clean inside windows
Use a hoover with an appropriate attachment to suck up any dust, cobwebs or dirt. Use a clean dry cloth to wipe down the windows, this will catch anything that the hoover did not pick up. Using a new clean and dry cloth clean the indoor glass panes with a window cleaner or some vinegar and water. Use a spray bottle and spray an even and light layer over the entire window, using your clean cloth (lint free, for best results) – them wipe horizontally and vertically to ensure a streak free result.
