How Often Should I Clean My Windows?
Best Time to Clean Your Windows
Cleaning windows will always require hard work, even during the “best” times of the year. It is frequent to hear people asking what the best time of year is to clean the windows, and truthfully, that is a tough question to answer.
Although some might think spring is the best time to clean their windows, the reality is that to keep your windows in good condition; ideally, you should keep them clean throughout the year, because excess debris can cause permanent damage to your windows.
Winter will make your windows the dirtiest, so naturally, it is a good idea to give them a good clean in the spring. When cleaning them on a breezy day, cleaning in the same direction as the breeze will help prevent streaks. If it’s a sunny day, it’s best to start before the sun gets all the way up, so start first thing in the morning.
Spring releases lots of pollen in the air which sticks to your windows. Cleaning them in the summer will help get the pollen off. However, this can be a tricky season for window cleaning, because as the windows get hot, cleaning solutions will evaporate much quicker.
Cleaning in autumn might seem counterintuitive since it can be very wet, but rain won’t affect how clean your windows look, thanks to the fact that it doesn’t contain any chemicals, minerals or salts. However, if your windows are already dirty when the rain hits, they will look even dirtier after it rains. The good thing about cleaning your windows this season is that temperatures are much more manageable and since it’s windy, it’s easier for them to dry streak-free.
You would think it can’t be done, but winter window cleaning is real. The products used can vary since now, something that doesn’t freeze will be needed to clean your windows, and of course, you’ll need warmer clothes to get the job done.
