How to Properly Clean Your Windows: Our Tried-and-True Cleaning Process
Windows are important to your home’s beauty and comfort; they give you a wonderful view of the outdoors, protect the inside of your home from the elements and they let in sunlight to brighten up your home. Because they are so vital to a home, they go through a lot of action. It’s wise to keep your windows clean so that they can continue to do their job well.
Window glass can get dirty pretty fast, especially with little hands or pets in the home, but luckily glass cleaning is pretty simple. Many Prairie Pella Wyoming LLC windows have features that make it easier to clean the exterior of your windows from the inside of your house, too. Looking for an easy, new window cleaning process? Here’s what Prairie Pella Wyoming LLC recommends:
- Start by brushing off your window sill with a small broom or brush. The dirt and dust that accumulates on the sill and ledges will stay there for a long time otherwise, and cleaning it out will also prevent smearing on the glass later on. Do not use the same cleaning duster that you will eventually use to clean the glass!
- Run your vacuum’s dusting brush attachment on the side of your window screen that faces indoors. You can also use this vacuum piece to suck up any leftover dirt and dust on your sills.
- Use a premixed vinegar-based cleaning solution, or an ammonia-free glass cleaner like Windex® or Sparkle® to clean your glass. You can create your own vinegar-based solution by mixing one-part white vinegar to 10 parts water. Apply your cleaner generously to a clean, lint-free cloth or paper towel and wipe down your glass from several different directions for the best clean.
- After the cleaning, let your windows air dry and then rinse your glass with clean water if there are any streaks left.
There are more tips, too! We recommend cleaning your windows on a cloudy day because the sun will dry the cleaning solution too quickly and leave streaks on your glass. Also, our Prairie Pella Wyoming LLC professionals select microfiber cloths since they are the least likely to leave tiny particles behind.
Take care of your beautiful view, protection barrier and light source by keeping your windows clean all year long.
