Keeping windows clean can be a tedious task, but keeping them clean is important for maximizing their usefulness and effectiveness while also promoting cleanliness. The better the windows look, the better the entire world looks from inside a home. And the better windows look, the better a home looks from the outside, helping to boost its value and ensure the owners are getting the best value for their home housing dollars. But many people ignore the task of cleaning their windows, partly from the tedium of cleaning multiple windows and partly due to not having the right tools to get the job done. Still, even when waiting between professional window cleanings, homeowners can do some simple tasks to help keep their windows as clean as possible.
Windows should be cleaned thoroughly at least once per month
To keep windows looking their best, they need a professional cleaning at least once per month during more peak season when windows are most in use and the sun is out the longest. Making it simple to keep those windows as clean as possible is aided when the rest of the home is kept clean. The less dust, grime and other possible contaminants are in the air, the less that can settle onto window. Avoiding liquids near windows can help, too, as does keeping any house plants away from the windows. Their leaves are drawn to the sun and its nourishing rays, but those leaves can leave compounds on the windows while any watering can cause staining on the sills.
Pet Hair Can Get Thick On Windows
Homeowners with pets also can have problems when it comes to keeping their windows as clean as possible. When pets shed, their fur can find its way to the windows and adhere to them if there is any condensation or some sticky substance on the windows that will cause the hairs to stick. Keeping interiors of homes clean of dust, pet hair and other messy sources will help to keep windows clean and make it easier to get them professionally cleaned for less money.
