How to Clean Your Windows, Properly

Dirty windows are instantly noticeable. It is a sorry side effect of the transparency of glass that when this transparency is interrupted it is very easy to see. Not only does this look bad, it reflects poorly on the homeowner and can also cause premature wear to your windows and doors. Simply put, cleaning your windows is vital.

But, what is the best way to really clean your windows? To create crystal clear glass that you barely even notice is there.

The first thing you’ll want to do is to remove any built-up dust that’s on or surrounding your windows – take down your curtains so that you have the room and air space to brush and dust down the excess dust on the pane. Make sure you get the corners too, as this is where dust can gather and compact.

Start by washing your windows with a soft sponge (to avoid scratches) soaked in hot soapy water. Adding washing up liquid to your warm water is a great idea if you have painted window frames, as some window cleaners can damage and erode the paintwork. Washing the pane in circular motions to avoid streaks will give your window a sheen and sparkle.

Once you’ve given your window a good wash, it’s time to remove the excess water – this can be done by the use of a squeegee, working downwards in an “reverse S motion,” again, to avoid streak on the glass. It’s important you regularly wipe down your squeegee, to avoid placing any dirt back onto the window.

Once you’ve completed this task, you can then take a microfiber cloth to wipe off any remaining water left over by the squeegee, focusing specifically on the bottom of the windows where water will have fallen during the previous action.

If you want your windows to really sparkle and shine then you can try the extra step of buffing. Ideal Home recommend using a scrunched-up piece of newspaper, start to buff the window in circular motions – the newspaper ink will add some extra gleam and sheen to the windows.

Experts recommend that you clean your windows at least twice a year and on cloudy days too! Despite the sunlight allowing you to see the dirt and build up better, the sun dries the windows too quickly, leaving behind streaks and marks that you’ve just worked hard to get rid of.

At Clear View, we recommend you always be on the look out for damage and dirt on your aluminium windows, so that you can tackle them immediately, so your home can continue to sparkle. If you’d like more help or advice on cleaning your windows, you can call us today on 08001357167.
