Tips for washing your window
Here are some tips on window washing that will help you get the job done quickly and efficiently:
- Start by preparing your window washing supplies. This typically includes window cleaning solution, a squeegee, an all-purpose towel or cloth, and some window washing tools like plastic scrapers or rubber blades.
- Before you begin window washing, it’s important to make sure that the window glass is clean and free of any dust or dirt. Use a soft brush or cloth to wipe away any debris from the window surface before getting started with your actual window washing.
- When it comes to window washing, there are two key techniques: horizontal and vertical strokes. For horizontal strokes, start at the top of the window and wipe downwards in smooth motions until you reach the bottom of the window frame. Then move on to the next section and repeat.
- For vertical window washing strokes, start at the top of the window and work your way down in smooth motions, making sure to clean both sides of each window pane with even strokes. You can also use a window cleaning tool like a plastic scraper or rubber blade for this step to ensure that you get into all the corners and hard-to-reach areas of your window.
- Once you’re done window washing, it’s important to dry off any excess cleaning solution or water from your window panes using a soft towel or cloth. This will help prevent streaks and leave your windows looking shiny and clean.
