Window Cleaning Tips
Here are just a few tips to keep your windows looking and operating at their best.
Double-hung windows have tilt-in sashes to access and clean the inside and outside glass surfaces easily. To easily pop out window screens to get at the exterior panes of glass, use a run-of-the-mill paint can opener.
When cleaning, use separate rags or sponges for all your inside and outside window cleaning to avoid unwanted messes inside. It’s also a good idea to use one rag to clean the glass and a separate one to clean the window’s frame, sill, sash, and other parts.
A Streak-Free Shine
Your good old dish detergent makes a great window cleaner as it cuts through grease and grime on your glass just like it does on your dishes. Another household staple, vinegar, makes a tremendous no-streak glass cleaner when diluted halfway with water.
Put a new rubber blade on your window squeegee after each cleaning, so you don’t get streaks the next time you use it.
Tough Stain Magic
Try a magic eraser sponge if you’re looking to get tough water stains or silicone caulk off your windows. For removing sticky substances from glass, spray them with glass cleaner, then use super fine steel wool to get through it. With a buffing wheel and a mildly abrasive cleaner, you can break out the big guns for tough glass stains.
If all else fails, hire a cleaning service to do the dirty work for you.
Easier Cleaning with Quality Window Installation
Quality windows can undoubtedly make cleaning them a lot easier. Older windows are not equipped with tilt-in sashes to allow for super-easy cleaning. At Master Seal, we specialize in vinyl replacement windows. Unlike wood, you never have to worry about refinishing a vinyl window. Plus, vinyl is more durable than other materials and only requires regular cleaning and maintenance to keep them working the way they should for many years to come.
If you’re investing in vinyl replacement windows, you’ll also want to invest in professional installation. Choosing a contractor like Master Seal ensures you get a quality product and top-notch installation from a reputable contractor.
