Tall windows or those installed in not-so accessible places around the home can be challenging to clean. However, window cleaning is an important home maintenance task that needs to be crossed off the to-do list. Fortunately, there are methods you can use to clean your tall windows. Trusted windows contractor Renewal by Andersen® of Milwaukee shows you how to do so in this article.
Pick a Cloudy Day
While it might seem counterintuitive to clean your windows on a cloudy day, it makes more sense to perform the task this way. Hot or sunny days aren’t conducive for window cleaning because the warm temperature will dry the glass cleaning solution on your windows before you can even wipe it off. This will also result in unsightly streaks on your windows.
You can purchase extension wands from your local hardware store so you can reach your high or tall windows better. You can also use a ladder and an extra long squeegee so you can reach all the nooks and crannies of your hard-to-reach windows. Just make sure to wear the proper gear and to always have someone to assist you when using a ladder.
Concoct Your Cleaning Solution
Even the best tools won’t be able to clean your windows efficiently if you don’t have a cleaning solution that works. You can make your own window cleaner using a mixture of dishwashing liquid and water and a mixture of white vinegar and water for the exterior windows. In any case,you can always ask your windows manufacturer about specially formulated cleaning solutions compatible with your windows.
