Open House: The Perfect Time to Get Your Window Washing

Open House: The Perfect Time to Get Your Window Washing!

Window washing can be a daunting task. It’s often one of those chores that we put off because it seems like it will be too difficult, or take too much time. But the truth is, window washing doesn’t have to be hard – and it’s definitely worth doing regularly, especially before hosting an open house. Here are a few tips for getting your windows clean in no time!

Clean the frame

Before you get started washing the windows, you should take a few minutes to wipe down their frames. Dirt can get stuck in these crevices and corners, so by cleaning them first, you’ll be able to see when they’re really clean! You don’t have to use harsh chemicals for this step – common household bleach diluted with water is a very good option.

Rinse, don’t wipe!

When it comes to actually washing the windows, there’s a debate among some professionals about whether you should clean your windows from the top down or bottom up. The traditional method of window cleaning has been to start at the top and work your way down, but some people say that this actually causes streaks and smudges. The idea behind this method is that by starting at the bottom of the window, you’re giving it time to dry, and you won’t end up with any drips or smears on your windows. So if you’re willing to take the chance (and the risk) of not cleaning your windows to perfection, go ahead and wash them from the bottom up! If you’re concerned about smudges or streaks, it might be best to start at the top.

Don’t forget the screens

Last but certainly not least, make sure that you also take a few minutes to clean any window screens. This can be one of the most annoying parts of window washing, but it’s still worth doing. Taking care of your screens now will prevent them from getting ripped or torn later on!
