Cleaning your windows may seem like a chore, but it’s important to keep them fresh and clean. Fortunately, there are some quick tricks that make window cleaning a breeze. Renewal by Andersen® of Central Pennsylvania explains more.
A common mistake people make is rubbing the entire glass with a sponge. While this can work, it’s time consuming and you’re more likely to spread the dirt around. Instead, get a squeegee and wipe in a reverse-S pattern. Then swipe through the window normally with the blade. Clean out the squeegee’s blade with a cloth, and you’ll have all the windows clean in five minutes.
People often make mistakes when it comes to drying the window. Many homeowners try using newspapers, which leave traces of paper behind. Instead, dry your replacement windows with a microfiber cloth. With this, you’ll get a clean and dry window. You’ll remove the chance of streaks and you’ll enjoy a beautiful shine.
Washing on the Right Day
You might think that washing your windows on a sunny day is better. After all, the sunlight would dry up the washed windows quickly. However, the problem is that direct sunlight can actually dry them too quickly, resulting in soap stains. Instead, choose a cloudy day, or clean them with a shade overhead.
Cleaning your windows with these techniques is easier, faster and more effective. As experts in casement windows and other window types, we know how to maintain windows properly.
