Windows Spring Cleaning

Windows Spring Cleaning

May 13, 2013


Now that spring is officially here, it’s important to make certain that the windows sparkle as they let in the spring sunlight. In your spring cleaning to make sure your windows are squeaky clean, consider these windows cleaning tips:

  • Choose a cloudy day for your spring window cleaning. Direct sunlight can dry the cleaning solution before you can properly polish the glass.
  • Be sure to wash both inside and outside the windows for a full-window clean.
  • Consider using a rubber-edged squeegee instead of cloth or paper towels for a faster, more effective method of cleaning.
  • For high windows, use a squeegee with a long handle for maximum reach.
  • Once washing, start from the top to avoid drips.
  • Place a cloth at the base of the window to absorb any drips and help protect the frames.
  • Wash one side of a window with horizontal strokes and the other with vertical strokes. This technique will allow you to see which side of the window has a streak.
  • Polish away tiny scratches using toothpaste.
  • If you want your windows to have an extreme shine, try polishing windows with crumpled newspaper or a well-washed cotton T-shirt.
  • After washing, be sure to dry the windowsills with a cloth to help protect the varnish and frame.

Hear From Our Customers

This was a great crew to work with. Both the original install manager we worked with (Jay) and the install team (Daniel, Mason, Tony, Ethan, and Jose). Everyone was very professional and knowledgable. They answered all my questions and the end result on the house is great. In 3 days they replaced an old bay window with a new bay window, a set of french doors on the patio with a sliding patio door, and our old front door with a new front door and storm door.

I cant express how happy we are with choosing Andersen for our window installation. Our sales representative was knowledgeable with product and answered any questions we had without hesitation. I did also fill out a survey that was sent in an email, but sadly I failed to personally name the two gentlemen that performed the actual installation. Barrett and Francisco were our guys, and let me tell you, they were outstanding!!! They did Excellent work and were professional as well as efficient and made this a smooth, none evasive process for us. I strongly recommend this company and these installers to anyone in need of windows!!! My husband and I could not be more pleased we chose Andersen for replacing our windows!!!

Jason and Brett did an awesome job installing our doors. We had separate installers a month earlier for our windows who also did a fantastic job. They were all very professional and cleaned up almost better than the area looked before the installation! Since these were both jobs that took more than one day the installers were great at keeping us informed on the status of where the project was at along the way.
