Clean windows will make your home brighter and improve the overall appearance. Some builders do their clients a favor and give them crystal-clear windows on completion of their home while others fall short. They may leave streaks and smudges behind from a poor attempt to clean them. Standard window glass must be treated with care during cleaning. Glass is actually soft and porous and is left exposed during a harsh new-construction environment.
Windows and New Home Construction
During new home construction the windows can be exposed to cement, paint, urethanes, sealers, plaster, stucco, texture, taping mud, mortar, silicone, stickers, and tape that can penetrate the surface and stick to the glass. Removing these without scratching the glass is the real challenge. The best way to avoid scratches on new glass during construction is to protect them by covering them with plastic, wood paneling or cardboard.
Steps to Window Cleaning
Windows that get splatter on them need to be cleaned with care. The first step is to use flowing water and a new 3- or 4-inch-wide sharp, flexible putty knife that has no burrs on the edge. This will help get foreign material off exterior surfaces of the glass. A mist of soapy water will lubricate the surface to help prevent scratches as built-up deposits are scraped off. A sponge or wand is used as the glass is wiped. The dirt is transferred to the sponge and a squeegee is used to remove the solution left on the glass. If you only remove some of the dirt the rest will just get spread around and possibly scratch the window. All dirt must be removed to get perfectly clean windows. Whenever possible, clean the inside of the windows before the outside. This is smart because cleaning the inside window will require opening and closing the window, which could result in leaving streaks on the glass.
