1. Remove Dust and Debris

First our SoulMaids, Austin house cleaning - commercial, begin by removing loose dirt, dust, and cobwebs from the window frames and sills using a soft bristle brush or a vacuum cleaner with a brush attachment. Clearing this debris prevents it from mixing with the cleaning solution and creating a muddy mess.

2. Mix Your Cleaning Solution

Next, mix a few drops of mild, eco-friendly dish soap or a specialized window cleaning solution with warm water. Avoid using harsh or abrasive cleaners, as they can damage your windows.

3. Wet the Window Surface

Then we dip a clean, lint-free microfiber or paper towel into the soapy water solution and thoroughly wet the entire window. Making sure the entire glass surface is evenly moistened to loosen dirt and grime.

4. Scrub Gently

Fourthly, our SoulMaids, Austin house cleaning - commercial, use the soft bristle brush to gently scrub the glass, starting at the top and working your way down. We pay special attention to any stubborn spots or marks. For extra cleaning power on exterior windows, we add a small amount of white vinegar to the solution.

5. Squeegee Technique

The squeegee is our best friend for achieving streak-free, crystal-clear windows. Here's how we use it effectively:

  • Start at the top left corner of the window.

  • Pull the squeegee down in a straight line, wiping the blade with a clean, lint-free cloth after each pass.

  • Continue this process from top to bottom, slightly overlapping each pass.

  • Wipe the squeegee's rubber blade with a dry cloth as needed to prevent streaks.

6. Detail the Edges

Then, we use a clean, dry cloth to detail the edges and corners of the window. Before moving on, we ensure there is no moisture or cleaning solution left behind to prevent streaks.

7. Polish for Perfection

For an added touch of brilliance, our SoulMaids, Austin house cleaning - commercial, use a dry, lint-free microfiber or paper towel to give your windows a final polish. This step ensures windows are completely streak-free and sparkling.

8. Repeat for Exterior Windows

For exterior windows, we follow the same process. When working from a ladder or an extension pole, we ensure our safety by using the proper equipment and taking necessary precautions.

9. Maintain Regular Cleaning

Regular window cleaning is essential for maintaining the clarity of your windows. Depending on your environment, aim to clean your windows at least twice a year or more frequently if you live in a high-dust area or near the coast.

Mastering the art of window cleaning allows you to enjoy the unobstructed views and the invigorating natural light that clean, sparkling windows provide. With the right supplies, proper technique, and regular maintenance, your windows will always be crystal-clear, enhancing the overall beauty and comfort of your home. Make window cleaning a part of your regular home maintenance routine with SoulMaids, Austin house cleaning - commercial, and you'll be amazed at the difference it can make in the ambiance and aesthetics of your living space.
