Sunburst Window Cleaning & Holiday Lighting lists tips to follow when you are washing your windows.
You Need More Than a Squeegee: When you wash your windows you usually need to use a water bucket that has some cleaner in it. Once you apply the water most people will use a squeegee to remove the water and cleaning solution. The problem is that the remaining water will end up on the edge of the window and could potentially drop down ruining the window cleaning you just did. You want to also have a dry cloth on hand to wipe away all the excess water that is sure to pile up.
Wash Windows from the Inside Out: You want to be sure that you start window washing from the inside of the house. Your windows are less dirty on the inside so your window cleaning tools will stay clean longer. It also makes it easy to see what dirt there still is on the outside and you can clean them more efficiently.
Remove Streaks from Glass: The problem with using a squeegee is that if you don’t have a good quality one, it is going to leave some streaks. You want to wash horizontally across the window and you can use a microfiber cloth to help remove any leftover streaks that may be on the window.
Treat Hard Water Stains: If you are cleaning the windows on the outside of your house you are sure to come across some water spots that are hard to remove. The hard water stains can come from the hose and even rain water. Once they set in they can take some work to remove. You want to use a treatment that removes these stains so you can have a nice clean window. Use a spray bottle with vinegar, dish soap and lemon juice to spray on the spots. This will help to remove the spots and allow you to clean the windows thoroughly.
Call in the Window Cleaning Professionals: The best thing you can do to ensure that you have clean windows is to call in a professional. The professional has the right tools and skills to clean the windows efficiently and have them looking great. It saves you time so that you can focus on other areas of your life. It can also be dangerous work cleaning windows that are up high so you would be out of danger by allowing a professional to do it for you.
