Prepare the Right Tools
You will need some essential tools to get started.
- 10 to 12 inch squeegee
- Scrubber or sponge
- 5-gallon Bucket
- Dish Soap
- Lint-free rags or towels
If you are looking for a window cleaning solution, you can find one in most stores. You can also make a homemade solution by mixing one part white vinegar with two parts of warm water or use a tablespoon of dish soap with 2 gallons of cold water.
Now Let’s Get to Cleaning
The first step in the exterior window cleaning process is to scrub the glass, working at all angles to clean the edges. You can also use a large brush to clean hard-to-reach edges. Removing the stubborn dirt first will make the cleaning easier, and you will get better results this way. Brush around corners, frames, window sills, and surrounding areas.
Now dip your sponge or scrubber in the solution you have prepared and soak the entire window. Make sure to get the corners and edges too. It’s recommended to move horizontally across the window, but you can also do it with vertical strokes. Make sure to guide the cleaning solution to areas that have not been cleaned.
Next, use your squeegee to clean off the window. Start with the top of the window and press the squeegee from one corner of the window to the other, moving horizontally. When you have reached the edge of the window, brush your squeegee on your rag or towel. Work down the window, cleaning again on the second row. Make sure to have a 2-inch overlap with the row you have already cleaned, that way, you won’t miss any spots. Follow this method to clean the entire window.
Finally, poke your finger into a dry spot on a separate lint-free rag and run it around the perimeter of the window to remove any remaining suds.
For most office windows, this is all the love they require. Never underestimate the power of clean windows to transform your rooms, making them light, bright, and good for the soul.
