Get Your Windows Crystal Clear With Our Guide

Keeping your windows sparkling clean and streak-free can seem like an endless chore. But with the right tools and techniques, you can get your windows crystal clear in no time. As a professional window cleaner with over 10 years of experience, I’m sharing all my insider tips and tricks for getting flawless windows.

Pick The Right Cleaning Tools

Having the proper cleaning tools makes a huge difference in the quality of your window cleaning. Here are the supplies I recommend:

  • Squeegee – A window squeegee with a soft rubber blade is essential for streak-free windows. Make sure to get one with a handle that extends so you can reach higher windows.

  • Microfiber cloths – Soft microfiber cloths trap dirt without leaving lint or streaks behind. I prefer the waffle weave kind.

  • Extendable scrub brush – An extendable brush helps scrub hard to reach spots on windows and window tracks. Look for one with soft nylon or microfiber bristles.

  • Spray bottles – Use separate spray bottles for washing solution and clean water to rinse. Choose ones with an adjustable nozzle.

  • Window washing solution – Opt for a store-bought window cleaner or make your own solution of vinegar, water, and a squirt of dish soap.

Know The Proper Techniques

With the right tools in hand, it’s also important to follow these professional window cleaning techniques:

1. Remove Screens and Obstacles

Start by removing any screens, blinds, curtains or furniture blocking the windows. This gives you full access to the glass.

2. Apply Cleaning Solution

Spray cleaning solution directly onto the glass and use a microfiber cloth to spread it around. Apply it to one small section at a time.

3. Scrub With a Scrub Brush

Use an extendable scrub brush to clean all corners, edges and window tracks. Scrub any tough spots in a circular motion.

4. Squeegee From Top To Bottom

Wipe excess cleaning solution with a squeegee using firm, even strokes from top to bottom. Overlap each pass slightly to prevent streaks.

5. Use A Microfiber Cloth For Final Touches

Lastly, dry any leftover moisture with a clean microfiber cloth using light buffing motions. Check closely for any missed spots.

Schedule Regular Cleanings

To keep your windows looking crystal clear long-term, I recommend cleaning them at least every 2-3 months. More frequent cleanings may be needed for windows that are exposed to high traffic, weather elements or environmental pollutants.

For exterior windows, schedule cleanings during dry weather when temperatures are moderate. This prevents cleaning solution from drying too fast before you can squeegee it off.

Bonus Tips for Sparkling Windows

Follow these extra pointers and your windows will shine:

  • Clean on an overcast day – Direct sunlight causes cleaning solution to dry too quickly.

  • Start high and work down – This avoids drips streaking already cleaned sections.

  • Rinse squeegee often – Give it a quick rinse in clean water to prevent solution buildup.

  • Consider window film – Window films can reduce cleaning frequency and improve energy efficiency.

With the right tools, techniques and regular cleanings, you can have spotless, streak-free windows that sparkle! Let me know if you have any other window cleaning questions.
