If you find yourself looking out your window only to see streaks and dirt instead, it’s time to do a window cleaning. But how can you get to cleaning your windows like a pro for the best results?
Check out our complete guide so you can learn how to get your home looking its best.
Step 1: Gather Your Supplies
To get the job done right, you need the appropriate tools. Treat yourself like a professional window cleaner, and you’ll get results like one.
Here are some of the high-quality window cleaning tools you need to wash like a professional.
- A 10 or 12-inch Squeegee
- A Sponge or Scrubber
- A Bucket
- Small Towels
- Dish Soap
- A Ladder
Before you even start, make sure your squeegee has new and sharp rubber blades. If you can purchase extra rubber blades, the better.
Mix a teaspoon of dishwashing liquid and water in the bucket. Vinegar and water is another solution that can work.
Step 2: Scrub Glass
Scrub the glass and make sure to reach all angles and edges. With the squeegee, move it horizontally, so the excess water is drained towards the uncleaned area.
Using the squeegee tip, reach out to the top corner of the glass window and clean a narrow strip of the glass from top to bottom. It makes it easier for horizontal strokes.
Place the squeegee on the upper corner of the window and pull it across while maintaining contact with the top edge.
Step 3: Clean the Squeegee
Wipe the squeegee blades between strokes with a clean towel. This will remove excess water and dirt.
Repeat the process with the squeegee overlapping the previous stroke a bit.
Step 4: Wipe Off Excess Water
Use the towel to wipe away any excess water. This ensures the minerals in water don’t harden and leave streaks.
You Can Clean Your Windows
Now that you have this guide in hand, you can confidently get all the window washing done around your home. Who knows, it may just become your favorite chore!
