If you keep your office windows clean in between visits from your window cleaner, then you’ll want to know the quickest and most effective methods.
Total Clean Blackpool are Professional Office Window Cleaners with a wealth of experience in the industry and we’ve put together our top 5 tips to help you keep your business gleaming.
Here are our top 5 tips to keep your office windows clean:
1. Don’t clean your windows on sunny days
Check your weather app before cleaning your office windows. Clear sunny days aren’t the best days to clean your windows as direct sunlight will dry your windows too fast, which will leave streaks due to the cleaning products drying too quickly.
2. Clean your window sills before you clean the glass
Have you ever started cleaning your windows and ended up smearing dirt all over your windows? Well, that’s a perfect example of why it’s important to clean the window sills and frames before the window glass.Try sweeping any dust and dirt away with a dustpan or broom and then give the window sills and frames a quick wipe over.
3. “My outside window sills get dirty so quickly”
Apply a coat of floor wax. Because your exterior windows are exposed to the elements, they are subject to collecting a lot of dirt. But there is a simple way to keep your sills clean: Wipe on a coat of clear floor wax to protect them.3. Use a sponge with warm soapy water first
Before you reach for your window/glass cleaning sprays, give your windows a good wash with a sponge and warm soapy water. The key is to use just a little bit of soap, otherwise you’ll end up streaking your windows! Wet your sponge with the water, wring it out and give your windows a good scrub. This technique is perfect if you have particularly stubborn stains on the outside of your windows.
4. Get the squeegee right
Giving your windows a streak-free clean can all come down to the way you squeegee them. Sloppy squeegeeing can leave streaks on your windows. So, what’s the best way to squeegee your windows? Start in the top corner, moving across and down the windows in a reverse-S pattern (left to right, right to left, left to right). As you move down the window, stop and wipe the squeegee blade — that way you won’t spread dirt around the window. If you want to get the best results, spray on a little bit of window cleaner and squeegee the windows a second time.
5. Buff your windows with newspaper
Have you heard of the old newspaper trick for windows. Well, the experts say you’ll get a streak-free and shiny window by buffing with a wad of newspaper. Apparently, the paper and ink will help your windows sparkle. All you need to do is fold the newspaper in half to make a solid wad and wipe down your window in a consistent vertical or horizontal direction.
