Wipe ‘Em Down

Cleaning windows

Windows, often the most overlooked part of a home or office building, can make or break its appearance. Spring may have sprung, but it’s never too late to shift your focus to window cleaning and maintenance. Keeping your windows clean and well-maintained is essential for letting in natural light, enhancing curb appeal, and making the best impression on visitors. Luckily, with just a few simple steps you can keep your windows looking like new! 

First, it’s essential to understand the type of window you have. Most windows are wood or vinyl frames, and the material will determine how best to clean them. For example, cleaning a wood-framed window requires more frequent maintenance than a vinyl window. It’s also important to choose the right cleaner for your windows. If your windows are made of vinyl, use a cleaner specifically designed for that material; otherwise, it could damage the surface of the window.

When cleaning your windows, starting from the top and working your way down is best. Begin by gently dusting or vacuuming away any dirt, debris, or cobwebs on the frame. Then use a soft cloth and your chosen cleaner to wipe down the window’s surface. Use a squeegee for vinyl windows and a rag or sponge for wood frames. Move from top to bottom in one sweeping motion, overlapping each pass slightly so you don’t miss any spots.

Finally, use a clean microfiber cloth to dry the window and frame and remove any streaks or smears. To remove tougher stains, you can use a mixture of vinegar and water to scrub away dirt and grime. If done properly, your windows should be sparkling in no time!

Window cleaning and maintenance is a great way to keep your home looking its best. With regular maintenance, you’ll be able to enjoy your beautiful view for years to come. Just remember to choose the right cleaner, start from the top, and use a squeegee or sponge to wipe away dirt and grime. Happy Cleaning!
