Window cleaning may seem like a relatively simple task. However, depending on how effectively you want to get the job done and to what quality, there are a number of factors you need to consider. So, what do you need to use for window cleaning to produce the best results?
If you want to avoid streaking and hard-water deposits on your windows, we recommend using pure water in the solution. If you want to make a homemade solution, you can try out a mixture of distilled water and white vinegar. To create an effective solution, mix together 2 cups pure water, ½ cup white or cider vinegar, and ¼ cup rubbing alcohol at 70% concentration. Once you have a solution, pour them into a spray bottle.
To avoid smearing or damaging glass, we suggest using a microfibre cloth, t-shirt, or newspaper. You should avoid using paper towels. In addition, you should spray the product directly onto your cloth instead of onto the window to prevent drops which you will have to wipe up afterwards.
To get to hard-to-reach places, we recommend using a ladder. If you are just cleaning windows in a residential property, you most likely will just need to use an extension ladder. A 20-foot ladder should be tall enough to reach second floor windows, so there shouldn’t be a need for a ladder which is any higher.
As is clear, window cleaning is pretty simple, but there a few things you can use to make the job easier and more effective.
