Cleaning your windows – inside and out this summer

Author: Matt Whatley   |   Date: 16th August 2019

We are all enjoying the benefits of warm sunshine and more daylight hours, and this time of year also brings a great opportunity to get your workplace sparkling with some window cleaning. Cleaning your windows - inside and out!

Dirty windows will block your view and limit the amount of light coming in, which is more important as we move into Autumn and the days get shorter. Natural light helps us all feel brighter and more positive, and a clean and tidy area helps with this too. Not only does it increase productivity for your staff, but cleaning your windows will also help to make a great impression on your clients. These are our top tips for getting your windows sparkling clean on the inside and out.

Remove dust and cobwebs before you start

A build-up of dust and perhaps even cobwebs will hinder your cleaning, so make sure you give the whole area a wipe over with a dry cloth to prepare the surfaces for cleaning.

Use soapy water or a specific cleaning product

You don’t need anything complicated to bring your windows up to a great standard of clean. Simple soapy water will do the trick, and you can use the washing up liquid you have sat on the sink. Be careful not to use too much of the liquid if you do, because too many soap suds will be harder to clean off and are likely to create streaks. Alternatively, there are a whole range of purpose-made window cleaning products to choose from at your local supermarket, and you can easily check the ingredients to make sure there are no chemicals which may damage your window frames too.

Use a squeegee

Using a squeegee well takes a bit of practice, but they’re a great tool for removing all the water from your windows when you wash them. If you’ve ever seen a professional in action you’ll have noticed the ‘s’ shape action they use to catch every drop, and that’s the best method for a squeegee. Keep a cloth handy to wipe the rubber blade from time to time and mop up the drips as you reach the bottom of the window. We love a microfibre cloth for this, but if you grab a few pieces of kitchen roll or similar be careful of it breaking up when it gets wet and ruining your streak-free shine!

Pick a good day for window cleaning

Many people think a bright sunny day is great for cleaning windows, but in fact, a bit of cloud is best. If it’s too warm the water and soap will dry quickly and leave marks or streaks, which is not the look you’re after!
