Having your windows cleaned by professionals is a great way to keep them in tip-top shape, but do you take care of your windows between professional washings? In this blog post, we will discuss how to maintain your windows between cleanings.
How to Clean Windows Between Professional Cleanings
First, it’s very important to remove any debris from your windows. An easy way to clean out the window sills is by using the brush attachment on your vacuum to sweep up any bugs or dirt.
Next, use distilled water, vinegar or dish washing detergent to clean the window glass. Use a sponge to wet the windows, then use a squeegee, starting in the upper corner and working down. Use a clean cloth to wipe the squeegee off after each pass across the windows. A dry squeegee prevents drips and streaks from forming on your window. Using a squeegee is the best method to clean your windows because it removes the dirt and dust. Paper towels move the dirt around and cause a static charge, which attracts dust.
It can also be helpful to run a cleaning cloth over the windows after you’re done with the squeegee to remove any streaks or residual cleaning solution. It’s important to then dry your window frames with a cloth, especially if you have wood windows.
If you can, clean your windows when the sun isn’t shining on them. Direct sunlight can cause the glass cleaner to dry quickly and leave streaks.
Why should I Maintain My Windows Between Professional Cleanings?
Glass has a porous nature, which, overtime, can be infiltrated with contaminants and pollutants. Preventing the degradation of your glass will increase the lifespan of your windows.
Maintaining your windows can also increase the lifespan of your window frames. Over time, wet, dusty, and dirty windows can weaken your windows and cause sagging or rotting.
