Clean windows look great and give you a good view of the outdoors. Here are some tips for cleaning your windows in fall.
Clean Your Windows on a Cloudy Day
Cleaning solutions must not dry up too fast to prevent streaks on the glass. This is why it’s ideal to clean your windows on a cloudy day instead of a sunny one.
Remove Blinds and Draperies
Taking off blinds and draperies gives you enough room to clean your windows from the inside. By doing this, you can also dust and clean your window treatments thoroughly.
Brush Everything Away
Use a soft-bristled brush to remove debris from your window frames, tracks and screens. Then, use a vacuum with an extension hose to make sure all debris is gone.
Wipe and Clean the Glass
Line a microfiber cloth along the window sills as you wipe the glass with a sponge and soapy water. The fabric will absorb excess moisture and protect your window sills. Use a scrub to clean your window sills and tracks for smooth window operation.
Use Residue-Free Cleaners
Scented, dyed and soapy cleaners can cause stains and streaks on the glass. Residue-free cleaners do not cause stains and won’t attract dust and grime to the surface.
Observe Proper Cleaning Techniques
Use a dry microfiber cloth to wipe the glass from top to bottom and then side to side. Avoid using a circular motion to prevent static from attracting dust to the surface.
Check for Window Leaks
Replace worn-out window seals to prevent heated air from leaking out.
Clean the Window Screens
Remove window screens, and use a garden hose to remove dirt and residue. Then, look for small tears that need to be repaired.
