Key Tips for Window Washing (Interior and Exterior)

Why Clean Windows Matter

Clean windows go beyond aesthetics and have a profound effect on your daily life in various ways:

  1. Natural Light and Energy Efficiency: Having clean windows allows natural light to flood your home, minimizing the reliance on artificial lighting throughout the day. This not only enhances your mood but also helps lower your energy bills.

  2. Improved Views: Whether you have a breathtaking ocean view, a lush garden, or a picturesque cityscape, clean windows ensure you get the best view possible from inside your home. Immerse yourself more closely with your awe-inspiring surroundings and experience the sensation of a vacation every day.

  3. Health Benefits: Clean windows create a healthier atmosphere for you and your loved ones by reducing the number of allergens and pollutants that can enter your home. Additionally, clean windows enhance mood, reduce stress, and provide better visual comfort, making your home a healthier and more pleasant place to be.

  4. Enhanced Curb Appeal: Dirty, streaky windows can detract from your home's curb appeal. Clean windows make a strong impression on visitors and potential buyers if you ever decide to sell.

DIY Window Cleaning Tips

While our professional services guarantee the highest level of cleanliness, here are some DIY window cleaning tips you can use to maintain the shine between our visits:

  1. Gather the Right Supplies: To get started, you'll need a bucket, squeegee, microfiber or lint-free cloth, a soft bristle brush, a window cleaning solution (or a homemade solution of water and a few drops of dish soap), and a drop cloth or old towels to protect your floors.

  2. Dust and Remove Cobwebs: Use a soft bristle brush or a duster to remove dust and cobwebs from window frames, sills, and corners.

  3. Prepare the Cleaning Solution: While our team uses top-of-the-line window cleaning solutions, you can test homemade solutions or find your favorite brand to purchase. For instance, for an interior solution, you can mix ¼ cup of vinegar, ½ teaspoon of liquid dish soap, and two cups of warm water.  For an exterior solution, use one part vinegar, and one part water. Avoid using harsh chemicals that can damage your windows or harm the environment. 

  4. Start with the Interior: Dip your lint-free cloth or sponge in the cleaning solution and wipe down the interior glass in an S-shaped motion. This technique prevents streaks.

  5. Squeegee Technique: For exterior windows, use a squeegee to wipe down the glass from top to bottom, wiping the blade after each pass. This method ensures a streak-free finish.

  6. Polish with a Dry Cloth: Finish by using a dry microfiber or lint-free cloth to polish the glass to a sparkling shine.

  7. Check for Streaks: Step back and inspect your work. If you notice any streaks or spots, touch them up with your dry cloth.

Common Window Cleaning Mistakes

Whether you decide to tackle the task yourself or entrust it to a professional cleaning service, it's important to be aware of the following common mistakes that can occur when inexperienced individuals attempt to clean windows:

  • Cleaning windows in direct sunlight – The bright rays of the sun swiftly dry the cleaning solution before you have a chance to wipe it away, resulting in unattractive streaks marring the clarity of your glass.
  • Skipping interior or exterior window cleaning – If you only clean the exterior windows and neglect the interior ones, you are missing out on the full benefits of having clean windows.
  • Using too much window cleaning solution – Using an excessive amount of window cleaning solution can make it difficult to achieve a streak-free finish.
  • Ignoring the dangers – Window cleaning that involves heights is dangerous. Every year, more than 700,000 emergency room visits are related to falls.

The simplest way to avoid window cleaning mistakes and to keep yourself safe is to hire a professional window cleaning company - or even better hire Hunter Best Cleaning!
