Understand your Surroundings
Cleaning windows in one type of climate can be very different than another. The same goes with the different seasons of the year as cooler windows have to be cleaned differently than warmer windows.
Direct Sunlight Isn’t Good
It may seem like a good idea to clean windows in the direct sunlight, but it’s not. This can actually make the job much harder as it will cause your solution to dry faster and start evaporating before you are done with it.
It’s best to clean your windows first thing in the morning before the sun is set to full blast. If you can do it on a day with cloud cover, this will put you at an even greater advantage.
Use the Right Technique
Streak-free windows require the right technique. You don’t want to use a paper towel, as it will not only leave behind streaks, but also some of the paper towel dust will be found on the windows. Instead, use a squeegee to ensure you get the cleanest windows possible.
Microfiber Towels Only
Even with using a squeegee you can end up with streaks. A Microfiber towel can make it easier to clean off the excess water without causing streaks or smudges. This type of towel won’t leave anything behind.
Hire a Professional
Probably the easiest way to ensure you get a streak-free shine on your clean windows is hiring a professional window cleaner. With a professional window cleaner, you will get the quality service you desire and clean, streak-free windows the first time.
It’s very possible to get streak-free windows. Use these tips and you will be well on your way to a cleaner window for your home or business.
