Choosing The Right Window Cleaning Products
When it comes to getting your windows clean, having the right cleaning products is of high importance. It is essential that you give yourself the best possible chance of getting the windows looking as good as new for the sake of allowing as much natural sunlight in as possible. This will change the feel of the house entirely, and you will no doubt find that it lifts the mood really nicely, so it is well worth doing right! Having a look over the following products will ensure that you are able to get the right bits and pieces for an easy and efficient window cleaning process.DetergentYou will find that there is a huge amount of variety in the different products that you can use to get your windows clean. Some window cleaners swear by secret formula that they have dreamt up themselves, whilst others will just use an ordinary washing up liquid! You can find all sorts of expensive specialist window cleaning products, but in reality a degreasing product will work wonders as long as you are using it properly. Window sprays are great for the interior sides of the windows, and will ensure that you can apply the product in a non drip, mess freeway, which is useful if you want to avoid soaking the inside of your house with a sponge and bucket!SqueegeesSqueegees are what separate the men form the boys when it comes to cleaning the outside windows of a house. You will find that they come in all sorts of shapes and sizes, as well as a variety in quality across the different brands available. Getting a decent one and investing a little cash will ensure that you get something that is worth having, rather than a petrol station knock off, then will hardly do you any favors. 14 inches seems to be the best length for all purpose uses, and this will be a great way to ensure that you are doing the right job on the outside of the house. The rubber blades are replaceable for when they wear out, though unless you are a professional, this won’t happen all too quickly!ClothsTowels, rags, and microfiber cloths are all essential for ensuring that you are doing the job right, as the main issue that you will find with cleaning windows lies in ridding the surface of water marks after the cleaning part is done. You will need a rough towel for getting rid of water that collects from using the squeegee, as well as rags for the edges of the windows. Using the microfiber cloths will ensure that you don’t get water marks when polishing up a window after you have cleaned it well. Microfiber cloths also prevent scratching, which is useful for windows.Mops Window mops are sometimes called wands, and are basically a wide furry mop, which you apply detergent to the window with, and scrub away the dirt. You will find that you can get different types, some with water retention to prevent revisiting the bucket too often. Ensure that you have a matching bucket that will take the width of the mop, as otherwise the whole thing will be massive hassle.ExtrasIf you are fully going for it on the exterior windows front, then you will need extra bits and pieces like ladders, belt buckets, poles and the like. These items will prepare you for cleaning windows of a higher height, and ensure that you are able to reach certain places that you may not without them.
