Window cleaning products and tips

Before you begin a cleaning job it always makes sense to get your supplies and equipment ready first.

You will need your window cleaner, we like our Glass & Window Cleaner its quick and easy to use and leaves no streaks behind.

We recommend  two cleaning cloths - one for wiping the cleaner on and the second for buffing up.

Begin by spraying the window with your cleaner and start at the bottom and work your way up to avoid runs. Work your cleaner in a circular motion paying attention to the corners.

If the windows are especially dirty you may wish to repeat this process to achieve perfectly clean and shiny windows.  Finish with your clean buffing cloth.

We always recommend a damp cloth for wiping down the inside and outside of frames - outside may benefit from some warm, soapy water - our Citrus Cleaner Concentrate will do a great job of removing any heavy soils safely and quickly.

Quick cleaning tips

  • Try and avoid cleaning windows requiring a ladder - leave it to the professionals!
  • Always use clean cloths
  • Keep a seperate cloth for buffing
  • Use a good quality cleaning product
  • Do a few windows at a time
  • Spray from the bottom up
  • Dont use too much cleaner
  • Remove your ornaments before you begin cleaning
