There’s nothing like clean windows to give your room that bright and airy feel. However, keeping them spotless can be a lot of work. That’s why you want to make sure those hours count. It’s probably best to keep common window cleaning mistakes in mind so you won’t end up doing them:
Picking a clear, sunny day
Woman’s Day says this is one of the most common mistakes people make. There’s a reason why professionals recommend washing your windows during a cloudy day. When there’s direct, full-on heat on your windows, the cleaning solution dries up that much faster, leaving behind streaks. That could be why you always end up with unsightly marks.
Cleaning the glass first
You’re so wrapped up in cleaning the glass that you forget to clean the frames, blinders or sills first. Only when you see your windows getting grimy again after you’ve cleaned the sills or when the blinders brush against it do you realize your slipup. Now, you’ll have do the glasses all over again.
Doing it yourself
A DIY solution can be great, if you have the time to learn how to do it properly. You must have the right tools too. If both of that’s a no, if you don’t have the time to learn and you’re just doing it the way you’ve always done it—wipe dirt away with towels or use tools that leave scratches behind—it might be better to step away from the work and let a pro handle it for you. By hiring a professional window cleaning service in San Ramon, you won’t have to worry about tools or proper window washing techniques. And since companies like WindowSmith only give you a quote after they take a look at your windows, you can be sure they’ve carefully considered the work involved instead of unscrupulously plucking the numbers out of a hat.
