Excellent Windows, Doors & Conservatories in Basingstoke

Albeit a bit later this year than usual, as the flowers bloom and the sun begins to shine brighter (every now and then), spring invites us to freshen up our homes. Clean windows can really help to enhance the brightness of your home. So, here’s our guide to getting your windows sparkling this season.

Why Spring for Window Cleaning?

Spring provides the perfect mild weather for window cleaning, avoiding the streaking caused by the summer sun. Cleaning your windows now prepares them to shine throughout the summer months.


Essentials for Window Cleaning

You don’t need much:

  • Warm, soapy water
  • A squeegee with a rubber blade
  • Soft, lint-free cloths
  • Clean dry brush
  • Distilled vinegar or a glass cleaner
  • Light machine oil for hardware


Tips for Spotless Windows

  1. Inspect First: Check for any damage from winter’s harshness—focus on the frames, seals, and glass.
  2. Clean the Frames: Start with the frames and sills. You’ll need warm, soapy water, a rubber-bladed squeegee, and soft cloths. Distilled vinegar or a commercial glass cleaner are also effective. Ensure all dirt and grime are removed before moving to the glass.
  3. The Right Technique: Clean frames first with soapy water, then clear the glass using top-to-bottom strokes with a clean cloth or rubber-bladed squeegee, to avoid streaks.
  4. Don’t Forget the Details: Clean and lubricate the window hardware with the light machine oil to ensure smooth operation.


External Window Cleaning

For exterior windows, hose down any loose debris before cleaning. Use the same cleaning techniques but ensure everything is dry to avoid streak marks.
