Spring Cleaning: What is the Best Way to Wash Your Windows?

Spring is here, and it’s time for spring cleaning! One of the most important parts of home maintenance during this time of year is cleaning your windows. Not only does it improve their effectiveness, but also beautifies your indoor living space and helps boost your home’s curb appeal. Washing your windows may seem daunting, but with the right techniques and tools, it can be a breeze!

Cleaning Your Windows

The following steps detail the best methods and techniques for cleaning and maintaining your windows throughout the process and beyond:

  • Use a soft-bristled brush or vacuum cleaner to remove dust and debris from the window before washing it to prevent dirt from being spread around rather than removed.
  • Use mild dish soap and warm water to clean the window with a soft, non-abrasive cloth or sponge.
  • Start at the top of the window and work your way down, wiping away excess water as needed.
  • Use a squeegee to remove any remaining water and leave the window with a streak-free finish.
  • Make sure to dry the squeegee blade between passes to avoid streaks and smudges.

For hard-to-reach windows or larger jobs, consider using a professional window cleaning service. If you’re looking to take on the task yourself, replacement Home Guard windows with FlexScreen makes it much easier to maintain your windows without the hassle of traditional screens.
