Make Window Cleaning a Part of Your Routine

People are creatures of habit. We live by routines, schedules, timelines, and the hands of clocks. We go to the doctor on regular schedules to check up on our health. We go to work everyday to earn a paycheck. Perhaps you eat lunch at noon or 1:00 p.m. Whatever your routine includes, there is one thing you should definitely add to it. Make window cleaning a part of your routine. This will bring your windows a certain sparkle and let in more light than you ever knew you could have inside your home. A bright and shiny home makes everyone that lives there feel a little better!
Hire a Professional Window Cleaner
Hiring a professional window cleaner is a much better way of getting your windows clean, especially if you have more than one story to your home. A professional will save you time and energy as well as potential money. If you have upstairs windows or high windows, then you are going to need to buy the tools and the products to get the job done. When you hire a professional, they bring their own tools and products, they bring their ladders, they bring their buckets, they even bring their finishing rags. You have nothing to do but sit back and watch the magic happen.
If you go with a pro, be sure to prepare for their arrival. If you have your exterior windows washed, then there may be a little bit of work you need to do beforehand on the outside of your house to remove any obstacles that may get in the way of the ladders or other equipment. Just be sure to contact the company you are hiring and ask for any instructions that need to be followed before and after the job.
Use a System
Anything that involves repetitive activities needs a system. There’s usually a system to window cleaning. It is important to have a plan in place if you are going to DIY your window cleaning. First, all the dirt, grime, debris and extra stuff you find built up on your windows needs to be removed. This is usually on the exterior of a house, but occasionally it applies to the inside. After all that is done, then comes to soapy water and detailed wash that makes your windows dazzlingly clean. Then the windows are wiped down with a soft cloth in just as much detail as the washing was done. When this process is over, then your home will be brighter, your energy bill will be lower, and your home will look more inviting without making it obvious what happened.
Get On a Window Cleaning Schedule
Dirty, cobweb-covered windows are for Halloween. Make window cleaning a part of your routine at least twice a year. Choose a time like during spring cleaning. Springtime is a great time to clean your windows. It washes away all the dirt and grime that is kicked up and sticks onto your windows during the winter. Or you could choose the end of fall, when the summer time mess and Autumn shedding of leaves is over. This will give your windows a bright start going into winter. Whatever you pick, make sure you can fit it into your routine easily. Having your windows done on a consistent basis helps keep the glass from cracking, and gives your home a beautiful sparkling shine.
