When the summer months hit, you have a lot of sunshine to enjoy. And that means you want your windows to allow that natural light in—while keeping the heat of the sun out, of course. Windows go through a lot in the winter months and since the spring can be so rainy, it can be hard to keep them sparkling clean until summer hits. Here are a few things you might want to add to your to-do list in order to make your Ontario, CA replacement windows and doors shine like they’re brand new.
Dust The Windowsills
You might clean the glass of your windows from time to time but dusting the window sills is just as important. Letting the dust gather will make the sill look dingy and dirty and can eat into the color of the windows. You want to dust that debris away to keep you from having a real mess. Dust first, then clean the windows so if some cleaning solution drips down, you won’t have a muddy mess to clean up.
Clean The Glass In The Clouds
You might think that cleaning your glass when it’s sunny is the best bet because you can see better, but the opposite is true. You don’t want the heat of the California sun beating through the windows when you clean them. In fact, it’s better to do it when it’s cloudy so the windows don’t dry too fast. That way, you can prevent streaks and get the glass as clean as possible.
Use The Right Materials
What do you like to use for window cleaning? Some people enjoy microfiber cloth, which is a great aid for getting a streak-free clean. Others swear by newspaper for avoiding streaks. Whatever you prefer, have some extra on hand to get the glass clean and make the windows really sparkle this summer.
Don’t Forget The Exterior
While it’s easier to clean the interior of your glass, you don’t want to forget to do the exterior as well. This can be easy if you have windows that tilt into your home, like double-hung. It’s not always easy on other types, but it is important. You need to get dirt, bird droppings, and other debris off the windows to leave them sparkling clean so you can enjoy them over the summer months.
