Spotless Windows: Your How-To Cleaning Guide

November 3, 2023

The clarity of your windows can transform the atmosphere of your home or office, but achieving that streak-free shine can be trickier than it looks. InPlace has gathered the best professional tips to help you see the outside world through impeccably clean glass.

Preparing Before Cleaning

Before you begin, remove dust and debris from the window frames with a dry cloth or a soft-bristle brush. This will prevent dirt from turning into mud when it comes into contact with the cleaning liquid and will also make the glass cleaning process easier.

Choosing the Right Product

The market is full of glass cleaning products, but many InPlace professionals prefer a simple solution of water and vinegar. Mix one part white vinegar with ten parts water for a natural and effective solution. If you prefer, you can also use a mild liquid detergent diluted in water.

The Cleaning Technique

Use a spray bottle to apply the cleaning solution directly to the glass.Clean the windows with a squeegee, starting from the top and moving to the bottom in a continuous vertical motion. This reduces the chances of leaving streaks.For smaller windows, a microfiber cloth may be more effective. Make sure to change the cloths regularly to avoid transferring dirt from one window to another.Don't forget the corners and edges. Use an old toothbrush or cotton swabs to reach these difficult areas.

When to Clean

The timing of cleaning is also crucial. Avoid cleaning windows under direct sunlight, as the heat can cause the cleaning product to dry quickly and leave marks. Prefer cloudy days or clean in the early hours of the morning or late in the afternoon.

Regular Maintenance

Regular window cleaning not only improves the view but also protects the glass. Residues and dirt can cause scratches and damage to the glass over time. InPlace recommends cleaning your windows at least once every season.
