Cleaning Glass Windows

Glass is commonly used in many houses in Australia to make the most of the best features of the home. One thing that glass window at home or in the office can give is the view when you look out the windows. This material however is porous in nature, so it is very important to be careful when you clean it. Hiring a professional window glass cleaning company to perform the task of cleaning is recommended.

There are several ways to clean your glass window effectively. If you are looking for some useful tips for doing the job yourself, look no further!

Before you start the actual cleaning of the window, you must vacuum the sill and frames. Make sure to use a vacuum with brush attachment so it can sweep the dirt or dust that has accumulated on the sill and frame. You may also see spider webs on the frame. You can use lemon oil for post-wash to ward spiders off from spinning their webs.

One way to clean glass doors and windows is to use a bucket of cleaning solution composed of clear ammonia or vinegar or a combination of both and warm water. You can also use a cup of methylated spirits for one bucket of warm water as an alternative. You should not clean glass windows on a hot sunny day because your windows may get streaks as a result of the solution drying up faster than having time to wipe it off.

When you perform glass window cleaning, you must do it one pane at a time. This is to make sure that it is thoroughly washed. After doing all the panes, you can use a lint-free microfiber cloth to dry the glass. You may read up somewhere that using newspaper is good, but we do not recommend it because newspapers can leave lint behind. In addition, newspapers today have latex-based inks that can result in streaks on your window. Using a squeegee is what our window glass cleaning team at All Aces Cleaning & Restoration recommends to effectively dry up the glass after cleaning.

Having clean, spotless glass windows makes the home look great. After all, it is much nicer to wake up in the morning, gaze out at the morning sun, and enjoy a cup of coffee rather than seeing dirty marks on your window. Window cleaning should be done at least once every six months. If you do great with your cleaning, your window will surely sparkle for much longer.
