Your windows, including vinyl replacement windows, play a key role in establishing the curb appeal of your home, so it’s important that you keep them in good condition. Cleaning them is a tedious chore though, and it requires a bit of strategy to do it effectively.
In this post, WMGB Home Improvement shares window cleaning tips to keep in mind for spotlessly clean glass and frames.
Clean on a Sunny Day
The best time to clean your windows is on a sunny day. Window cleaners and soaps will dry onto the glass and frames faster. That said, you’ll want to start on windows in the shade first before moving onto the ones that the sun is directly facing.
The Power of Liquid Detergents
Liquid detergents or any dish cleaners are great for quickly cleaning spotty glass surfaces. Not only do they remove dirt and grease quite well, but they leave the glass slippery for easy cleaning. We recommend you use 100% biodegradable soap though when you’re cleaning the outside glass as it’s harmless to plants.
Clean the Tracks
For sliding windows, you’ll want to pay close attention to the tracks. This part of the window tends to accumulate so much dirt over the course of its operating lifespan, and you’ll find everything from leaves to dust balls there. You can remove some windows from their tracks, but if this isn’t an option, you’ll want to brush or vacuum this part to get rid of the built-up dirt.
