Clean windows let the sun shine into your facility and give your space a more professional, polished look. Follow these tips from the experts here at DP Supply, Inc. to get clean, streak-free windows easily and quickly!
Start with a Squeegee
The key to getting streak-free windows is to choose the right cleaning supplies in Danville. Start with a 10- to 12-inch squeegee, and don’t forget to stock up on replacement rubbers, also known as blades. Good blades are essential to getting a professional finish, so take care of them by making sure nothing is touching them in storage, and change them when they become sliced, rounded or nicked.
You’ll also need a large bucket, glass-cleaning solution and good sponge to clean your windows like a pro. Once you purchase your cleaning supplies, follow these steps to get streak-free windows every time.
Step One: Dip your sponge or scrubber in the solution and squeeze out excess water.
Step Two: Scrub the glass, taking care to clean the edges and cover ever square inch.
Step Three: Place the squeegee at the top corner of the glass and move it down using even pressure from the top to the bottom. Tilt the squeegee at an angle so only the blade touches the glass.
Step Four: Next, starting in the upper corner, pull the squeegee horizontally across the top of the window. Keep the squeegee’s top edge in contact with the window’s top edge.
Step Five: Use a clean towel to wipe off the squeegee blade and remove excess water and dirt.
Step Six: Continue working down the window horizontally. Overlap each stroke with the previous one by about one or two inches, and don’t forget to wipe down the squeegee with your clean rag after every stroke.
Step Seven: Use your clean rag to wipe away any excess water at the window’s bottom, then run the rag around the window’s perimeter to get rid of any suds that remain.
