For some people, window cleaning ranks right up there with getting a root canal. While it is one of those things that eventually needs to be done, no one ever wants to do it. However, if you want to improve the appearance of your home or workplace, then window cleaning is a task you cannot put off for too long.
Your business will maintain a professional appearance and your home will look brighter and more welcoming. The easiest option is to hire a window cleaning company London to do the job for you. However, if cost is an issue or you just want to do it yourself, here are some window cleaning tips for getting the most out of your efforts.
1. Avoid Direct Sunlight
There’s no point in window cleaning when the sun is blazing behind you. Not only will you work up a sweat even quicker, the heat will rapidly dry the solution onto the glass, leaving soapy spots and streaks.
2. Creating Your Own Window Cleaner
You want to use a good window cleaning solution. Harsh chemicals, like ammonia, are not necessary to get a streak free shine. A mixture of vinegar and water will do for windows that are mildly soiled. Use a sink washing liquid and water on windows that require a little more attention. Pour your homemade cleaning product into a spray bottle.
3. Having the Right Tools
Make sure you are using the appropriate tools for your window cleaning service. You will want to use a soft towel to wash the windows and a durable squeegee to whisk the water away. Don’t use a cloth to dry the windows as it might leave lint on the glass. Using a squeegee is less likely to result in streaks.
4. Remove Cobwebs
They always appear over neglected windows. It’s a good idea to remove them before you begin the window cleaning. Use a feather duster or dry cloth so that it doesn’t cling to the glass once the windows are wet.
5. How to Use a Squeegee
When removing the excess water with the squeegee, start from the top and work your way to the bottom. This way you won’t have water dribbling over the sides of the squeegee that will dirty the space you just cleaned.
6. Clean the Window Frames
Don’t forget to wipe down the frames as well to get rid of the dust and grime that have accumulated on them. It’s probably best that you do this before cleaning the glass to avoid messing them up again.
If this all sounds like too much work or you have windows that are just too high up to clean, then consider hiring professional window cleaners London. Not only will you save yourself the time it takes to clean your windows, you won’t have to deal with unsafe conditions. Be smart and make the right choice.
