We Love Our Windows All Year Long
Windows can be a big investment for many people, and they are one of the most important features of your home! As such, it is vitally important to invest in proper washing. A lot of homeowners wonder when is the best time to get them washed at home. The answer depends on many factors including how often you use your glass surfaces and whether or not you want them to be sparkling clean or just streak-free.
Window Washing Throughout the Year
That’s right, it’s time to get your glass surfaces shining again. Regular cleaning is a great way to keep them looking nice and can also protect you from the sun when they’re up high in your home or office. It will help preserve their energy efficiency as well! A lot of people are surprised that this task should be done year-round, but it’s important to keep them clean all year long.
The first few weeks of spring is a great time for washing. This will help to get rid of winter grime and dirt that often accumulates on the outside pane from snow, sleet, or ice melting off your roof. If there’s been any rain in recent days, giving your windows an initial wash can also help to remove any dirt, pollen, or dust that may have accumulated on the inside of your windows from the rain.
Summer, Summer, Summertime
When it’s summer we are ready for outdoor barbecues, vacations, and pool parties! Is it a good time to take on your glass surfaces? Yes! But because it’s hot outside, you might want to wait until evening when temperatures are lower. This will help prevent water from evaporating as quickly off your glass cleaner which increases their efficiency.
Fall into Clean
Possibly one of the best times to wash is during the fall season! This will help you get rid of dirt, pollen, and dust that accumulates from leaves blowing onto window panes throughout the year. Cleaning them in late fall can also be helpful because it’s often just after the first frost, and this will help to clear off any dirt or grime that has accumulated on them from leaves blowing onto the outside panes.
If you want something sparkling clean, it is best to wait until after a snow storm before wiping down the glass with water and soap. This will prevent ice from forming on them which would make it difficult for the cleaner to get rid of dirt and grime that has accumulated on them. It is best to have them washed when there has been rain in order to avoid attracting dirt from outside and also prevent frosted or iced-over panes of glass. A good rule of thumb is to do this in the winter when rain has fallen.
