Cleaning windows with grills or small panes is more challenging than cleaning large, unobstructed windows. Here’s a step-by-step guide to help you effectively clean windows with grills or small panes.
Firstly, remove dust and loose dirt with a soft brush or a vacuum. Prepare a cleaning solution by mixing water with a small amount of dish soap or white vinegar in a bucket. For the best clean without leaving streaks, ensure you have microfiber cloths or sponges, a squeegee with a rubber blade, a soft-bristle brush or toothbrush, and a lint-free cloth or newspaper for polishing.
Dip a sponge or microfiber cloth into the cleaning solution, and wet the window surface, including the grills and panes. Scrub the grills and edges with a soft brush or toothbrush, paying close attention to corners and areas with noticeable dirt and grime. Use a squeegee to remove the cleaning solution, starting from the top and wiping the blade after each pass to prevent streaks.
Clean the corners and edges with a damp cloth or sponge, addressing any remaining grime or streaks. Dry and polish the windows using a lint-free cloth or newspaper, ensuring a streak-free finish. If windows are exceptionally dirty, repeat the process as needed.
- Clean windows on a cloudy day or when the windows are not exposed to direct sunlight. This helps prevent the cleaning solution from drying too quickly, reducing streaks.
- Work from top to bottom to avoid drips on already cleaned areas.
