In the backdrop of a pandemic that is still ruling strong, cleaning has become more critical than ever. With the arrival of spring, it is that time of the year again when we want to clean our home thoroughly, including the windows. Windows boost the curb appeal of a house. Crystal clear, sparkling windows bring light to your home. Through the windows, you connect with the outside world. Imagine having guests at your home with filthy windows around! Not done! If you are unsure how to start your window cleaning project, we share our tips to clean windows like a pro. Read on!
For cleaning windows, you can go the DIY way or hire window cleaning experts. Due to the pandemic, many prefer the DIY approach as they don’t allow outsiders at home. For DIY window cleaning, you will first need the tools.
The first thing you need is a squeegee. There are different varieties of squeegees you can buy from. You can buy a squeegee with a silicone blade or a rubber blade. Silicone blades will last long. Be sure to check the grip. Cushioned grips are comfortable and won’t slip when your hands are wet. Squeegees come with different blade widths.
Washing rags and drying rags:
Microfiber cleaning cloths have dense and absorbent fibers and can remove dirt, dust, and germs from all surfaces. These are eco-friendly products and have a soft feel you will love.
We recommend using eco-friendly window cleaning products that are non-toxic and better for the environment. If you have pets, kids, or seniors, these green products won’t harm them anyway. Shop for a microbiome-friendly window and glass cleaner that leaves your windows streak-free and sparkling. If you are against using store-bought solutions, you can make it at home by mixing distilled white vinegar, baking soda, and water. You can use citrus fruits to add a fresh fragrance around. Using hydrogen peroxide in the mix is a good idea as it is effective in killing bacteria.
You will also need a bucket ( a no-brainer), a sponge, a brush, and a ladder (if your windows are located at a height).
Start by loosening the dirt. Dipping the sponge into the cleaning solution, start from the top and come to the bottom, using a zig-zag motion. Repeat this to remove all visible traces of dirt. Use the squeegee to remove water from the window surface. Wipe dry utilizing the microfiber rag. Deep clean the window seal using a brush.
Note: Remember to remove any window treatments such as blinds, curtains, and shades before you start cleaning.
If DIY is not your thing, it is best to hire a window cleaning expert. In Canada, you can hire experienced experts who use eco-friendly window cleaning products. For thorough window cleaning services at the North and South Shore or in Montreal, ask window cleaning experts at Entretien Squidgee.
