How to Clean Hard-to-Reach Windows

November 28, 2019

Tall windows or those installed in not-so accessible places around the home can be challenging to clean. However, window cleaning is an important home maintenance task that needs to be crossed off the to-do list. Fortunately, there are methods you can use to clean your tall windows. Trusted windows contractor Renewal by Andersen® of Milwaukee shows you how to do so in this article.

Pick a Cloudy Day

While it might seem counterintuitive to clean your windows on a cloudy day, it makes more sense to perform the task this way. Hot or sunny days aren’t conducive for window cleaning because the warm temperature will dry the glass cleaning solution on your windows before you can even wipe it off. This will also result in unsightly streaks on your windows.

Equip Yourself

You can purchase extension wands from your local hardware store so you can reach your high or tall windows better. You can also use a ladder and an extra long squeegee so you can reach all the nooks and crannies of your hard-to-reach windows. Just make sure to wear the proper gear and to always have someone to assist you when using a ladder.

Concoct Your Cleaning Solution

Even the best tools won’t be able to clean your windows efficiently if you don’t have a cleaning solution that works. You can make your own window cleaner using a mixture of dishwashing liquid and water and a mixture of white vinegar and water for the exterior windows. In any case,you can always ask your windows manufacturer about specially formulated cleaning solutions compatible with your windows.

High windows are even more beautiful to look at when they are clean. Renewal by Andersen of Milwaukee offers low-maintenance yet high-quality doors and windows for your every need. Call us today at (262) 522-3034 for a quote. We serve several areas in Wisconsin, including Milwaukee, WI. 

Hear From Our Customers

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.

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!!!

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.
