Windows are essential to your home’s beauty and comfort; they give you a wonderful view of your outdoor space, protect the inside of your home from the elements and they let in sunlight to brighten up your home. Because they are so important to a home, they go through a lot of action. It’s important to keep your windows clean so that continue to enhance your home.
Window glass can get dirty pretty easily, even sooner with little hands or pets in the home, but fortunately glass cleaning is pretty simple. Many Pella Windows and Doors windows have features that it make it less painful to clean the exterior of your windows from inside your home, too. Looking for easy to manage, new window cleaning process? Here’s what Pella Windows and Doors swears on:
- You can start by brushing off your window sill with a small broom or brush. The dirt and dust that accumulates on the sill and ledges will stay there for a long time otherwise, and brushing will also prevent smearing on the glass later on. Do not use the same cleaning cloth that you will eventually use to clean the glass!
- Run your vacuum’s dusting brush attachment along the side of your window screen that faces indoors. You can also use this vacuum piece to grab any leftover dirt and dust on your sills.
- Use a premixed vinegar-based cleaning solution, or an ammonia-free glass cleaner like Windex® or Sparkle® to clean your window’s glass. You can create your own vinegar-based solution by mixing one-part white vinegar to 10 parts water. Apply your cleaner generously to a clean, lint-free cloth or paper towel and wipe down your glass from several different directions for the best clean.
- Let your windows air dry after cleaning and then rinse your glass with clean water if there are any streaks left.
We’ve got a few more tips, too! We suggest that you clean your windows on a cloudy day because the sun will dry the cleaning solution too quickly and leave streaks on your glass. Also, our Pella Windows and Doors professionals prefer microfiber cloths since they are the least likely to leave tiny particles behind.
Take care of your beautiful view, protection barrier and light source by keeping your windows clean throughout the year.
