A DIY Guide for Window Cleaning

When it comes to cleaning windows, the right tools and techniques can make all the difference.

To get started, you’ll need a few essential items:

-10 or 12-inch squeegee
-Soft-bristled brush or sponge
-5-gallon bucket
-Dawn dish soap
-Lint-free cloths or towels
-Ladder or step stool

Next, mix up your window cleaning solution. For a homemade window cleaning solution, combine 2 gallons of water with a small amount of dish soap (about 1 teaspoon per gallon of water). If you prefer a streak-free shine, you can always add a cap or two of white vinegar instead.

Now it’s time to get started! Begin by preparing the area around your windows. Move any furniture or plants away from the windows to prevent any accidental damage or mess.

Then, use your soft-bristled brush or sponge dipped in the solution to scrub the windows, covering all surfaces and edges. Remove any debris or cobwebs, and create a dry narrow strip from top to bottom on one side of the window to help your squeegee glide smoothly.

Next, place your squeegee blade at the top corner of the window and pull it across, maintaining contact with the top edge. Repeat this process in sections, wiping your squeegee clean between strokes. Finally, use a lint-free cloth to wipe away any excess water and remove any remaining soap residue along the perimeter.

If you’re cleaning windows inside, the process is similar. Simply squeeze out excess water from your scrubber and wipe it clean. Keep rags handy to quickly wipe your squeegee and clean up any spills. And for a streak-free shine, try using microfiber rags – they make a big difference!

Some final tips to keep in mind: avoid using paper towels, which can leave behind lint and scratches. Clean windows on a cloudy day to prevent streaks and water spots. And always use a ladder safely, maintaining three points of contact and considering enlisting a helper for extra support.

By following these steps and using the right tools, you’ll be able to achieve sparkling clean windows that will make your whole house shine. Happy cleaning! If you need help, All Clear Window Cleaning is always a phone call away.
