While living at the same house or apartment for a long time sooner or later we start thinking of how to clean our home windows, as they are not becoming cleaner with time. Then we start to remember different recipes we’ve been hearing and using since childhood.
For a long time people have been using such things as soap, vinegar, lemon juice and so on in purpose to make their home windows spotlessly clean. In this article we will try to clear up which way of window cleaning is the most effective.
- How often to clean
Frequency of window cleaning really means a lot, as the more often you clean your windows, the less dirty they are. That is why there are some homeowners who enjoy cleaning their windows once a week. But on the other hand there are a lot of people who just don’t have time and desire to be engaged in such activities so often, and that’s why they consider normal for windows to be washed very well and carefully two or three times a year, usually in spring and fall.
It’s better not to clean your windows in hot season and in sunny weather, because everything dries up too quickly and streaks most likely appear on your cleaned windows, which looks not so well.
- Vinegar or soap or…?
‘So, what is the best way to clean the window?’ you may ask. In fact there is no right answer. Much more important is how well and careful are you going to clean your window glass.
The easiest way is to use a solution of a few drops of dish soap for one gallon of plain water. Using a soft rug apply your cleaning solution to the surface of the window. For cleaning places that are hard to reach, you can use old toothbrush. After you ensure that all the surfaces of the window are washed, you can use squeegee to clear the solution away.
To prevent the appearing of streaks, dry your washed window up with a soft towel or newspapers. Paper towels also can be used very efficiently for this purpose.
- Reasons to shout ‘help’
There are different situations, when people just have no opportunity to clean their windows by themselves. For example if they have no time, or they live in a three-storey house, so they need to use a huge ladder to clean windows from outside. It can be extremely dangerous and that’s why it’s better to call the window cleaning company with the special equipment.
Apex Window Werks highly recommends you making sure that the workers of the window cleaning company are insured and have good reviews, so they can be considered good specialists in the window cleaning sphere.
Also you should ask the cleaning company, how many people are going to come in a group for cleaning your home windows. Obviously group or four people will do their work and leave your house much quicker, then if the same task will be done by only one person.
