How To Clean Windows Without Streaking
Cleaning windows without streaks is never easy. Just when you thought that you’ve given your windows a thorough cleaning, you become frustrated after seeing residue. Fortunately, there are some things you can do to clean your windows without streaking. This task is simple to do provided that you know that you are doing. Provided below are some important window cleaning tips you need to know.
The first thing you need to ask yourself is if you are using hard water. You have to be sure that you are not using hard water especially when you are using tap water when diluting the glass cleaning solution. Hard water contains minerals that can leave behind unexpected streaks. When diluting your cleaning solution, you will get clearer and cleaner result You can also use this tip when cleaning other glass surfaces such as mirrors and tabletops.
You should also think about using vinegar, which is known as a multipurpose cleaning tool. It is an effective cleaning solution that can take care of carpet stains, puppy puddles, soap scum, and get rid of dirt on glass surfaces. It is very easy to use. All you need to do is fill half of a spray bottle with vinegar and add water. Spray it on the glass surface and wipe it off with a clean cloth. If you are uncomfortable with the scent of vinegar, then you may have to find another cleaning solution. If you would like to give it a try but is afraid of its smell, you can try it first on your exterior windows. You can also try it inside if you will be away from your home for some time. You also have the option to hire a professional Myrtle Beach window cleaning company to get this done for you.
In case you do not want to use vinegar and you prefer the regular glass cleaner, be careful of the typical old soap. Sudsy soap cleaners will almost always leave streaks on your windows. You need to avoid using this if you don’t want to see any residue on your windows after wiping it clean.
The next thing you have to think about is what you are using to soak up your selected cleaning solution. Are you using paper towels? If yes, you might want to rethink this choice. Paper towels are easy to use and inexpensive. However, their plush texture often leaves behind lint and streaks. To get rid of this residue, you need to use newspapers, squeegees, or microfiber cloth. If you want to use newspaper, be sure to put on some gloves so your hands will be protected from the ink.
Don’t forget to buff all tricky spots. Rub the areas with streaks using circular and fast movements with enough pressure. The stubborn streaks will eventually disappear. But you need to be patient and you need to put in some effort. Meanwhile, a lot of homeowners think the best time for window cleaning is when the sun is out. That is actually not a good idea. Cleaning windows in warm and direct sunlight will cause the soapy water to dry on the glass prematurely, which will leave soap streaks and marks.
