How to clean a window – techniques and hacks

Cleaning windows may seem like a straightforward task, but achieving streak-free, crystal-clear results requires the right techniques and a few clever hacks. Whether you’re tackling vertical blinds, removing the stains from the inside, or braving the elements to clean the outside, here’s everything you need to know to master the art of this chore.

How to clean a window – inside techniques by our team?

Their maintenance from the inside requires attention to detail and the right tools. Follow these steps:

  1. Start by removing any dust and debris from the glass surface – don’t forget about the frames and sills. Professionals prefer using a dry microfiber cloth or vacuum cleaner attachment because they provide high-quality and fast removal of pollution.
  2. Prepare a solution of warm water and a small amount of mild dish soap in a bucket – this will help you to remove the stains.
  3. Dip a squeegee into the soapy water and wring out excess moisture – if you don’t have a squeegee you can use a microfiber cloth.
  4. Start from the top down – starting from the top corner of the window, use the squeegee or cloth to work on the glass in a horizontal motion, overlapping each stroke slightly.
  5. Remove moisture and dirt – wipe the squeegee blade or cloth with a dry microfiber cloth after each pass to remove excess water and prevent streaks.
  6. Finishing touches – finish by drying the edges with a dry microfiber cloth to prevent water spots.

The best ways to clean the outside of it

Cleaning windows from the outside can be more challenging, especially if you’re dealing with hard-to-reach areas or stubborn dirt. Here are some hacks to make outdoor maintaining easier:

  • use a hose with a spray nozzle attachment to wet them thoroughly before cleaning. This helps loosen dirt and grime for easier removal;
  • invest in a telescopic pole with a squeegee attachment to reach high or awkward windows safely from the ground;
  • add a few drops of dish soap to the water in your spray bottle for extra cleaning power when tackling stubborn stains or bird droppings.

Our team reminds you to be careful when performing these actions, especially if you live on a higher floor.

  4. Starting from the top of the blinds, gently wipe each slat with the damp cloth or sponge, working your way down.
