Gradually grime will erode the glass of your windows. To ensure your windows stay in perfect shape, it is recommended to clean them 2-3 times a year.
Below we are going to discuss a few tips and tricks you can do to have sparkling clean windows.
Pick a Cloudy Day
When you finally decide to clean your windows make sure to clean them on a cloudy day. If you choose to clean them on a sunny day the cleaning solution you have on your windows will dry too quickly. Thus, when you go to dry your windows, the solution will already be dry and you will have streaks on your windows.
Clear the Area
To ensure your furniture or other items don’t get damaged, move them away from your windows. Remove any curtains or blinds you may have up. Place tables, chairs, lamps, etc. away from the windows until your windows are clean.
Lay down towels or rags near your windows to further ensure there is no damage done to your floors.
Dust and Vacuum Your Interior Windows
To make cleaning easier, dust and vacuum your windows, windowsills, and window tracks. Apply the cleaning solution after you dust and vacuum.
By dusting and vacuuming, you will remove a lot of the dirt. This means while you are using the cleaning solution there will be less dirt spread around. You will spend less time cleaning.
Water with a Touch of Soap
Many cleaners can leave streaks behind. It is recommended that you use water with dish soap to clean your windows. You only need a small amount of dish soap.
Use a sponge for your windows, window tracks, and windowsills. If you are having a hard time getting into all the crevices of your window tracks, you may want to use a toothbrush.
If you have dirtier windows you can add vinegar to your cleaning solution. Vinegar will make it easier to remove the grime.
Use a Squeegee and Dry Cloth
After you have put the cleaning solution onto your windows, the next step is to use a squeegee. Wipe off your squeegee on a dry cloth every few strokes so you aren’t putting water back onto your windows.
Once you have finished, go over your windows with a dry cloth to ensure there are no streaks left on your windows.
If Your Interior Windows Are Too Far Gone
Maybe you haven’t touched your windows in years and they have become quite filthy. Perhaps you recently had repairs done to your house that made your windows very dirty.
