Winter is the time of year that people spend more time inside and less time out in the fresh air. The weather makes it so that you go out to get from one place to the next but that is it. For those few long months your children might start to get bored of being inside and playing the same old games. Children are naturally curious and hours spent in their room or around the house may get them thinking about what else there is to do. Kids love to color and draw pictures for their family to hang on the fridge but they might start to venture off the paper. Many kids have taken their crayons and markers to their own body, to the walls and carpet. None of these are good to find but kids have even been known to put their artwork on the windows. A window is a nice smooth surface that looks like a perfect canvas to a child that is bored of their coloring book. As much as you probably love the custom artwork, no one wants to have it on their beautiful windows.
Sunburst Window Cleaning and Holiday Lighting has some tips on removing crayon and markers from your residential windows.
Removing Crayon and Marker from Your Windows
If you have a child that has shown their artistic skills on your windows, you will want to wash it off as soon as possible. The task is not terribly hard but be sure that it is done right to remove all the residue so that it does not damage the glass. You can use standard glass cleaning spray to spritz over the window. Then use a clean, dry, soft cloth to wipe away gently at the marker or crayon marks. This should be the step that starts to remove most of the colors. After this step you need to repeat again to get the residue and remaining color off the window and leave it looking clean and clear. If a standard window cleaning spray does not work, try a vinegar and water mixture to help break down the thick waxy crayon. You may have to scrub in order to get the crayon and marker to lift off the window and as long as you are doing this with a nice soft cloth you should not cause damage to your window.
Call A Professional To Clean Your Windows
If you have an art project on your window and don’t feel confident that you can remove it appropriately, you can call a professional window cleaning company to come out and clean the mess as well as the rest of your windows to have them all equally clean and clear.
