The Do’s & Dont’s of Window Cleaning
Stains and streaks on windows are an eyesore but dirt and debris can mean more than just a bad look. It might not seem like it, but glass is a porous material. This means that in the same way dirt can get into the pores of a sponge, it can get into the pores of a window – although on a much smaller scale.
When they are clean, windows can have a major impact on both comfort and cost. Clear glass lets in more natural light, cutting energy costs while intact window frames help lower air conditioning costs in summer and heating costs in winter.
It is easy to see why clean windows are important but before you reach for those everyday window cleaners, here are some things to consider:
Don’t: The most common approach to window cleaning for amateurs is a bottle of blue cleaner and a roll of paper towels. This is problematic for two reasons: static cling and corners. The friction that comes from wiping surfaces creates static cling which attracts new dirt and debris.
As soon as you pack up supplies, you might notice bits of lighter debris stuck to window panes, making them look dirty all over again. This type of cleaning also can’t dig into corners and tough angles, so dirt just piles up, degrading certain parts of your glass and frames. Glass is known to be fragile but as it degrades from the inside out, it is even more prone to breakage.
In addition to not getting the right results, inexperienced cleaning can also be dangerous. Climbing up on a ladder to reach higher windows can mean slips and falls.
