To get sparkling clean windows, it takes a bit of work and a simple crash course on knowing the most common window cleaning mistakes to avoid.
Is there such a thing as cleaning mistakes?
Yes there is. It is because in our eagerness to attempt to clean our windows; we actually end up doing it the wrong way and we can even damage the glass or parts around the window. Read on to discover the top 4 most common window cleaning mistakes you might already be making.
- Ignoring the weather
- You don’t address deposits in your main cleaning process
- Using the wrong cloth
- Trying to do too much at a time
Ignoring the weather
Don’t be tempted to clean your glass windows on a bright sunny day, because you’re likely to end up with smears everywhere, as the cleaning solution will dry too fast. Also, don’t clean your window exterior just before the rain comes. You are just wasting your effort for a short term result – when the rain comes and goes, so does your clean window! That is why professional window cleaners start so early to avoid the hottest part of the day.
You don’t address deposits in your main cleaning process
When cleaning deposits off your windows, such as a bird droppings, dirt, salt and grime; clean it as you would clean a stain in your carpet. Don’t waste a whole bunch of cleaning solution. Instead, just spot clean the area. Spray a little cleaning solution and lift the deposit away. Paper towel is recommended, as you can easily dispose of when you are done.
Using the wrong cloth
Use sponges, micro fibre or chamois cloth to achieve better results. Do not use lint based cloth or paper towel (other than spot cleaning) as these cleaners, these will leave fibres all over your window!
Trying to do too much at a time
If you have lots of windows, clean them one by one, one at a time. It’s better to have less clean, but all matching windows rather than having many half clean windows. If you don’t want to spend hours of your time, if you don’t have the expertise or equipment; call in the professionals to get a fabulous job done quickly.
