We’ve all been there. You set out to clean your windows, thinking you’ll be able to get it done easily within an hour or so. Then, after what feels like an eternity of scrubbing, you’ve only completed a single window… and it’s taken you half an hour.
So, how do we avoid spending a whole day trying to clean hour windows? How do we clean them efficiently? Lucky for you, we’ve gathered some expert advice on how to make window cleaning efficient, sparing you from cleaning the same spot, over and over, like some kind of psychotic, window-cleaning zombie.
Pick the right weather
If you’re not a professional and don’t have all the fancy gear that the pros do, then you’ll probably want to choose a day with the right weather for cleaning windows. Aim for a day that is dry but cloudy – the sun can create nasty streaks on your windows, which kind of defeats the purpose of doing it in the first place.
Get rid of the dust
From afar, you may not be able to see it but, up close, your windows are a prime collector of dust and dirt. Cleaning your windows without removing this gunk first will result in smudging and spreading it all over the window. Take to your window with an old dry towel or a brush in order to get the dirt off. Then you can get started on the cleaning process.
Choose a good quality cleaner
There’s no point trying to clean your windows with a bit of water and no cleaning agent. You’ve got to use a good quality cleaner to cut through the grime and make your windows shine… hey, that rhymes! You don’t need to buy the most expensive stuff on the market, you just need to make sure it’s a decent glass cleaner.
Start from the top and work your way to the bottom. Don’t lose track of where you are when cleaning your windows because you might then waste time cleaning a spot that you’ve already cleaned!
Hire a professional
Possibly the most efficient way to make window cleaning efficient is to hire a professional. Not only do they get the job done quicker and safer, but they also save you from going out and buying the specific equipment for window cleaning. You also won’t have to wait around for the right type of weather! Professional window cleaners can get the job done, even if the sun is beating.
