The Best Tips for Cleaning the Outside of Windows
Cleaning the outside of your windows can be a daunting task, but with these 8 simple steps, you’ll have your windows looking like new in no time. And with the energy-efficient Synergetic Home windows, you’ll not only be able to see the world outside clearly, but you’ll also be reducing your carbon footprint.
Step 1: Rinse
First things first, give your windows a good rinse to get rid of any loose dirt or debris. A hose is the easiest way to do this, but if you don’t have one, a bucket of water and a cloth will work just fine.
Step 2: Get your cleaning solution ready
For outside windows, DIY is often the most cost-effective way to go. Simply mix 1 part white vinegar with 2 parts water in a spray bottle or bucket. Alternatively, you can use a commercial window cleaner if you prefer.
Step 3: Apply the cleaning solution
Using a clean cloth or sponge, apply the cleaning solution to the entire window. If you’re dealing with a particularly large or tall window, a sponge mop on a pole might be more efficient.
Step 4: Rinse again
Rinse the entire window with a hose or wrung cloth to get rid of any remaining dirt or cleaning solution.
Step 5: Apply more cleaning solution
Apply another dose of the cleaning solution to the entire window.
Step 6: Use a towel or squeegee
Using a towel or squeegee (for taller windows), wipe the cleaning solution in an S-shape from top to bottom. Remember to wring out your towel or wipe your squeegee at the end of each line.
Step 7: Rinse and repeat
Rinse the window again and repeat steps 5 and 6 until your window is clean and streak-free.
Step 8: Check for streaks and let it dry
Make sure there are no water streaks on the window before letting it dry. And there you have it! Your Synergetic Home windows are now sparkling clean and energy efficient.
Pro tip: Clean your windows on a cool or overcast day to avoid streaks caused by the cleaning solution drying too quickly in the sun.
With these steps, your windows will be sparkling in no time. Now go ahead, enjoy the beautiful view outside with crystal clear windows!
