How To Clean Windows And Keep Them Clean

Window cleaning is a big task, so be sure to use an effective and long-lasting approach. Here are a few tips to utilize:
-Clean when it is coolest and out of sun (prevents cleaning fluid from evaporating)
-Use a squeegee to avoid streaks
Staying Cleaning
-Clean and dust the surrounding
-Don't forget to dust the blinds!
-Remove the screens and keep them off if you don't make use of them
-Apply a thin coat of floor wax to the outside ledge to protect against the elements
-Replace the air filter regularly to help pull dust from the air (i.e. every 2-3 months)
-Keep smoking outside
Spraying the windows to be washed
While rags and towels are commonly used, try switching to a squeegee.
