Proper care and maintenance can help keep the windows in your home looking their best and extend their lifespan. Even if cleaning your windows doesn’t seem like the best way to spend a sunny Saturday afternoon, it’s a necessary activity that will save you money and repair costs over the long run.

Window Cleaning

For general window cleaning, prepare cleaning solution by using either of these basic recipes:

Recipe Option 1 – Soap

  • 1-teaspoon baby shampoo
  • 1 gallon of water

Recipe Option 2 – Vinegar

  • 1-1/2 cups vinegar
  • 1 gallon of water

Next, follow these easy steps:

  1. Rinse surface with clean water from top to bottom
  2. Clean with mild soap and water and sponge or soft brush with uniform pressure horizontally, then vertically. Note! Quickly rinse and dry any run-down. Don’t allow cleaning solutions to collect or puddle on vinyl surfaces, crevices, etc
  3. Promptly rinse thoroughly with clean water (sponging while rinsing may be helpful; do not allow cleaning solution to dry on the glass or vinyl surface).
  4. Wipe dry with lint-free, dry cloth
  5. If necessary, repeat steps above until clean
  6. Dry window frame and sill with separate cloth

Since there’s so much to cover, we’ll touch on maintenance in a follow-up post to ensure you get the full scoop on what you need to do to keep your windows operating soundly.
