Winter hit us fast and hard this year, and many of us didn’t have a chance to get our windows cleaned one last time for the season. With the weather getting above freezing now, you have a second chance to get those outside windows washed before Christmas.
But get it done as soon as you can, before the temperatures drop again.
Outside Window Cleaning
Since we are pressed for time, you could probably skip cleaning the window screens and take care of that part in the spring. So for now, just concentrate on getting the glass cleaned.
There are three methods that you can choose from: fast, medium, and tedious.
To get your windows cleaned fast, purchase the outdoor window cleaner that you attach to a hose. Spray down the windows and then dry. The pressure from the spraying water and the cleaner remove the dirt without having to scrub the glass.
For a medium speed method, purchase a window cleaner with a cloth head. Dip the cloth in a soapy solution and scrub, scrub, scrub. This is a great way to reach tall or high windows.
If you prefer to do things the tedious way, grab a bottle of window cleaner and a roll of paper towels. Spray down the windows and clean them up with the paper towels – don’t forget the ladder to reach the high and tall windows.
Oh, there is also super-fast. This method is when you hire someone else to clean your windows for you.
Regardless of the method that you use to clean your window, make sure that you get those windows dried so that they don’t freeze at night. To get your windows the driest, use a squeegee. After each squeegee stroke, dry off the blade with a cloth before you apply it to the window again. Follow up with a dry cloth to clean any missed spots or drips.
If you want to save yourself the trouble of having to clean your windows on the nice day between freezes, consider maintenance-free windows.
Our maintenance- free windows are high-performance Low-E4 glass that is made with a titanium dioxide exterior coating. This special coating releases dirt from the glass when the sun shines on the coating and then when it rains the dirt is then simply washed away.
You also won’t have to worry about drying the window because this special coating makes the glass dry faster.
