If you don’t have uPVC windows or are wondering why so many are switching to them, you should read about the benefits they offer. Read on for our top tips for cleaning your uPVC windows.

Things You’ll Need

Before you start, make sure you have:

A damp cloth or dustpan and brush
Sponges
Washing-up liquid
Microfibre cloth
Newspaper
Vinegar

Dust It Off

Dust builds up on the corners of your windows and on the windowsills. Before you clean, you need to remove the dust. If you forget this step, then you’re likely to smear dust across your windows and stain them.

Clean It Your Way

If you go to any supermarket, you’ll see lots of window cleaning solutions all offering “spectacular” results. In reality, you can use your own solution and save money. All you need is some soap and warm water. You only need a small amount of washing-up liquid, so don’t go overboard. Use a sponge to gently clean your windows.

You can also use white vinegar as a cleaning solution. Add two tablespoons to a bucket filled with warm water and clean with a sponge or wet cloth.

The Perfect Finish

After you’ve removed the stains from your windows, you need to dry them. To get a streak-free finish, use a microfibre cloth and gently wipe around the glass. Now it’s time to shine. Newspaper is an old favourite and an inexpensive tool to use. Roll it into a ball and start buffing. You’ll get a streak-free, shining window.

Further Tips

There’s the right time to clean your windows and the wrong one. On a cloudy day, you’ll be able to clean your windows, but a sunny day will dry your windows too quickly and stop you from getting the perfect streak-free look. Let’s face it: nobody wants to spend a summer cleaning their windows when there’s a chance for days out. Save the cleaning for cloudy days.

Windows at work

If however your at work it is not your duty to clean all the windows in the office and getting to them could be tricky. This will probably require a specialist so why not grab your manager and suggest a Commercial cleaning Gloucester company which you might be able to find at sites such as http://intocleaning.co.uk/.  Companies like these will not only offer window cleaning services but office cleaning too.
