Cleaning your domestic windows is one of those household chores that needs doing sooner or later. Not many people enjoy doing it as it involves working at height, manhandling heavy buckets up and down ladders, and generally getting soaked. Of course, you can’t put it off forever.
Here at Pureclean Ltd, we perform domestic window cleaning for a living, so we know how hard it can be. With our decades of combined experience, we’ve also picked up a few hints and tips to help you get the perfect gleam. These are just a few of the most useful ones:
1. Choose the right day to clean your windows
You might think a bright summer’s day is the perfect time to clean the windows, but you’d be wrong. If it’s too warm, your window cleaning spray will dry too quickly and leave smears on the pane. If it’s too bright, you can end up blinding yourself with the reflection off the glass.
2. Clear away the dirt and dust
Before you apply your window cleaning solution, you need to sweep away any noticeable dust and dirt. If you don’t, it will end up mixing with the cleaner until it’s more like painting the windows than washing them!
3. Don’t hold back on the cleaner
Window cleaning products are formulated to dissolve dirt and grime, suspending it so it can be easily rinsed clear of the window pane. If you try to skimp on the spray, it won’t be able to do its job and you won’t be able to finish yours.
4. Use the right cloth for drying
Traditionally, people used newspaper to dry their newly cleaned windows but, these days, you should invest in a reusable microfibre cloth. Not only are they washable and incredibly absorbent, they leave your panes gleaming and streak free.
5. Beware the squeegee
Professional domestic window cleaners swear by the humble squeegee, but they take some practice. If you don’t know what you’re doing with them, odds are that you’ll end up making quite the mess as you push the excess water and cleaning solution down towards the bottom of the pane.
6. Don’t try cleaning all your windows in one day
Here at Pureclean Ltd, cleaning windows is our job. This means we will tackle all your windows in one go. If you’re cleaning them yourself, there’s not need to worry about that. Do the front one day and the rear windows another. Or even spread the job out over the course of a week.
