Home cleaning becomes a top priority whenever spring comes around. As the weather becomes warmer, it might be time to pay attention to one of the features of your home—your windows. They greatly affect your home’s curb appeal, so you’d want them to be fully functional and flawless all year round.
Today, A&A Services Home Improvement, your local experts in window and siding repair, presents these essential tips for efficiently cleaning your windows with ease.
1. Prepare your windows.
Before you clean your windows, be sure they’re open and their screens are removed (if there are any). Move any obstructions inside and outside your windows that might hinder you from performing the task. From there, you can wash your windows using soapy water. Don’t do it in direct sunlight to prevent hard water stains on the glass.
2. Wash the window glass.
Wash the window glass on both sides. You can use your preferred glass cleaner, but you can also mix equal parts vinegar and equal parts water as an alternative. Spray the cleaner on the glass and wipe with a rag. To dry, window and siding repair pros recommend using either a microfiber cloth or a squeegee to keep the glass free from lint and streaks.
3. Wipe the rest of your windows.
Use a vacuum cleaner to remove debris from hard-to-reach areas. For dirt buildup, use a fine detail brush and then a soft, dry cloth. Then, wipe down the window sills and frames.
4. Pay attention to your window treatment.
Don’t forget your window treatments. Dust your blinds and/or curtain hardware and give them a quick wipe to remove dust and dirt. As for your window coverings, you can either vacuum or machine-wash them. If you’re going for the latter, make sure you have replacement curtains or drapes.
