How often do you clean your windows? Do they sparkle and shine like the day you first put them up, or are they more of a mess than ever before?
Windows are an essential part of any building. They provide a way for light to enter the room and offer a space to view the outside world. However, when windows become dirty, they can cause glare on screens.
The best way to ensure your windows are clean is to use the right products. The following blog post discusses how you can make your windows installed by a reputable Denver window company spotless clean.
Remove Your Blinds and Curtains
To make your windows spotless, you’ll need to remove the blinds and curtains from each window. In addition, curtains can trap dirt against your window and should be removed for thorough cleaning.
You should also remove any valances or drapery rods that could cause a mess if not cleaned properly. Do that before moving on to step two of making your windows spotless.
Clean the Window Frame
Using a sponge, clean each window frame with warm soapy water. You can use the opportunity to inspect your windows for any flaws or cracks that you should have repaired before cleaning them thoroughly.
After rinsing off the soap residue and allowing it to dry, you’re ready for step three of making your windows spotless.
Clean the Window and Fix Any Scratches
Now that your windows are clean and in good condition, you can use a special cleaner to remove any smudges or fingerprints. Alcohol-free glass cleaners work well for most types of glass surfaces.
If there is stubborn dirt on the window surface, it’s best to try using vinegar mixed with water. Use a soft cloth and avoid any harsh scrubbing that could cause damage or scratches on the window surface.
You may consider using toothpaste for windows with bad scratches (yes, plain old white paste). It can remove light scratching from glass surfaces without causing further problems like damaging the glass finish.
Clean the Windowsill
Windowsills can get dirty from daily use and should get cleaned at least once a month. The best way to clean them is with soap and water, but you may also use vinegar mixed in equal parts of hot water for extra cleaning power.
Using an old toothbrush or sponge, scrub away any dirt on the window sill and allow it to dry before moving on to step five of making your windows spotless.
Clean the Tracks
If your windows have rollers or tracks for opening and closing, clean them thoroughly before moving on. You can use old socks instead of cleaning products in your home if you have allergies and sensitivities! Cut off the toe section and tie it around the bottom part of your broom. The sock should fit snuggly on the bristles and catch any extra dirt that could cause a mess while cleaning the tracks.
