Windows are everywhere, and you would think that cleaning them is a pretty straightforward task. While cleaning your windows seems easy enough, a lot of homeowners still have a tough time simply because they weren’t taught how to properly clean their windows and have developed some pretty bad habits that actually do more harm than good.
Bad Habit #1: Not Having the Right Tools
As with most cleaning jobs, it often comes down to owning the right tools. To clean your windows properly you will need a good cleaning solution, a bucket, a large sponge or mop, a squeegee and a microfiber cloth or scraper.
Bad Habit #2: Cleaning Windows on a Sunny Day
It may sound harmless, but cleaning your windows on a hot, sunny day can actually make the process more difficult. Most window companies recommend cleaning your windows on a cloudy day. This is because too much sunshine can cause soapy water to evaporate before you have the chance to wipe it off, leaving unsightly streaks and marks.
Bad Habit #3: Not Cleaning in Sections
If you are cleaning a large window, it is better to work on one small section at a time. This gives you ample time to soap, rinse and dry each individual section before you can move on to the next area.
Bad Habit #4: Not Calling a Professional
Sometimes, cleaning your windows can be risky, especially if you have to work on the exterior portions on a higher level of your home. For this reason, it is always better to leave it to a professional window cleaner. This way, you get the best possible results without risking your safety.
