How to Clean Your Windows: A Step-by-Step Guide

Spring is finally here, and it’s time to start your annual spring-cleaning routine. One task that often gets overlooked but is essential for maintaining your home’s cleanliness and overall appearance is cleaning your windows! We’re sharing expert tips on how to clean your windows like a pro.

Step 1: Inspect Windows for Damage

Before you start cleaning your windows, inspect them for any damage. Check for cracks, chips, or damaged weatherstripping. Repairing any damage will help ensure that your windows function properly and prevent further damage from occurring.

Step 2: Clean the Window Frames

Use a soft-bristled brush and mild soap and water to clean the window frames. Remove any dirt or debris that may have accumulated over the winter months. Avoid using abrasive cleaners or materials that can scratch or damage the frame.

Step 3: Wash the Window Glass

To clean the glass, use a soft cloth or sponge and a solution of water, and mild soap. Rinse the soap thoroughly with clean water. Avoid using harsh chemicals, as they can damage the glass and frames. Windows from Universal Windows Direct all feature an easy clean design, such as sashes that tilt in or sashes that easily come in and out of the frame.

Step 4: Check the Window Seals

Inspect the seals around your windows for any damage or wear. Damaged seals can allow air and moisture to enter your home, which can increase energy costs and lead to water damage. Replace any damaged seals as soon as possible to ensure proper insulation and prevent further damage.
With these steps, you’ll be able to clean your windows like a pro and maintain their longevity. Now that you know how to clean like a pro, make sure you aren’t making these mistakes!
