If your office’s windows are covered in fingerprints and debris, then it’s time to clean them. Nothing is more unappealing to your clients than dirty windows, and you don’t want them to be distracted by grimy glass when you’re talking about important matters. Worst of all, no one will want to do business with you if you can’t even keep your office clean.
Keep on reading to learn how and when to wash your dirty windows.
Pick the Right Tools for the Job
Do you use paper towels to clean your windows? If your answer is yes, you need to stop right there. Paper towels are one of the worst tools to use, especially if they’re made of sandpaper. They leave your windows with a streaky mess, and your clients are the first to notice.
Instead, you should use a squeegee because it won’t make a wet mess, and it’s what professional cleaning companies use. Although you probably won’t have to wash your windows more than a few times a year, your squeegee will also come in handy for cleaning other parts of your office. For example, if your office boasts a shower, you can use it to clean the walls.
You won’t be able to get the job done without the right window cleaner. You’ll find several cleaning products at the store, and all of them promise streak-free results. However, they won’t tell you about their poisonous chemicals, and you don’t want to expose your employees and clients to them.
Fortunately, you can make a DIY cleaner for free. All you need to do is mix a few drops of liquid dish soap with warm water; this will cut through grease and dirt, and it’s safe to use on tempered glass. Be careful not to use too much because it can lead to a soapy residue build-up on your windows, which will cause streaks.
If you can’t stand the smell of soap, you can mix a few drops of vinegar with water to make your glass sparkle.
Clean Your Windows on a Cloudy Day
Most people clean their windows in the summer because they mistakenly believe the sun will help them see streaks and grime; however, this causes a streaky mess. If you apply a cleaning solution to glass that’s hot, your heated windowpanes will cause it to dry too quickly, making your windows look dirtier.
Pick a gloomy day to tackle this task; overcast weather is your safest bet. If you live in an area where the sun is always out, then you’ll have to wait for a time when the sun doesn’t hit the office. Alternately, you can also clean your windows at night.
