There are many mistakes which might occur when cleaning windows. Cleaning the windows on your own without any professional help is a very tedious choice. I have personally tried to do it multiple times on my own. Even though I do a better job with each try. At the end of the day, my cleaning is nothing as compared to what the window cleaners could pull off in such a short time. Since Sydney has a sunny climate throughout the year. There are more streaks than I can imagine while I am cleaning my windows. So, as a bonus for this article and with personal experience, I can easily recommend you one of the best window cleaning companies in Sydney. Make sure to check them out.
1. Choosing a sunny day?
Normally, you would think that choosing a sunny day will let you dry your windows quicker and better. But, it’s the opposite. You will be leaving more streaks on the windows than you can wipe them off. So, choose a dry, cloudy day or do it only on the shady parts of your house if it’s sunny.
2. Dirt and Deposit?
Never start cleaning your windows right away. Vacuum the dirt and scrape out the bird droppings and other deposits on your window first. For more stubborn deposits, you can apply some hot water or a little bit of cleaner solution and then scrape it off with a scraper that doesn’t damage your window glass.
3. Wrong Materials?
Don’t always go for that all-organic lemon and vinegar duo because they may be harmful to excessive usage and for some window glass. If it’s your first time, research on a proper cleaning solution or hire a window cleaning company and learn from them to manage the second time on your own. Please don’t use the old newspaper trick to dry your windows because they leave behind paper deposits. Make sure to use a thick lint-free towel. Also, don’t be greedy with that cleaner solution. You may need to pour/spritz it a lot to avoid streaks.
4. Approach and Safety Risks?
If you have ever seen professionals cleaning windows, they always follow the top to bottom approach to avoid dripping liquid and leaving streaks behind. Also, I am sure you can’t do a proper job on some windows of your house while cleaning them from the inside-out.
Doing so is also dangerous and so is using a ladder on your own to clean from the outside without any professional expertise or experience. Are your life and body worth that risk? Think again.
Now if you keep in mind the points I just made, I am sure you can avoid some layman mistakes. But if you aren’t cleaning your windows daily, isn’t it much better to hire a good cleaning company once in a while and let them finish everything in a day while you relax sipping coffee on your backyard?
