Get Your Windows Glowing with These Foolproof Cleaning Tips

Cleaning windows can be a tedious and time-consuming task, but with the right techniques and tools, you can make the process much easier and more efficient. Whether you’re cleaning the windows in your home or office, these foolproof tips will help you get your windows sparkling clean in no time.

1. Use the Right Tools

Before you start cleaning your windows, make sure you have the right tools on hand. You’ll need a squeegee, a bucket of warm, soapy water, a sponge or microfiber cloth, and a dry, lint-free cloth for drying. You may also want to invest in a window cleaning solution or make your own using vinegar and water.

2. Start with the Frames and Sills

Before you clean the glass, start by cleaning the window frames and sills. Use a damp cloth or sponge to wipe away any dirt, dust, and grime that has accumulated. Pay special attention to the corners and edges where dirt tends to build up.

3. Clean the Glass

Once the frames and sills are clean, it’s time to tackle the glass. Dip your sponge or cloth into the soapy water and scrub the glass in a circular motion, working from top to bottom. Be sure to remove any stubborn dirt or grime by applying a bit of pressure.

4. Use a Squeegee

After scrubbing the glass, use a squeegee to remove the excess water and soap. Start at the top of the window and pull the squeegee down in a straight line, wiping the blade with a dry cloth after each stroke. This will help prevent streaks and ensure a streak-free finish.

5. Dry and Polish

Once you’ve squeegeed the entire window, use a dry, lint-free cloth to dry and polish the glass. Wipe away any remaining water or streaks, taking care to buff the glass to a sparkling shine.

“Dear Haim,
It has been so very busy here, thank God, that I never had the chance to formally thank you for the absolutely beautiful job you and your team did with our rugs and sofa. I know when a job is superior and such is the case, much to my surprise, upon entering the apartment after you completed the work.

Thank you again – you will ever be our service provider etc…“

Sunlight Customer, Oriental Rug Cleaning

A few weeks ago, I had Haim Shemesh clean my sofa & I was very pleased. He was professional, the price was reasonable & my sofa looks brand new again!

Sunlight Customer, Oriental Rug Cleaning

I had Haim Shemesh from Sunlight clean all my area rugs. He did a fabulous job! They are all handmade Orientals and he took them to a place that soaks them in a tub and hand washes them the way it’s supposed to be done. They look so much better and brighter Haim came to my apt to give me an estimate, took the rugs, then delivered them back to me a week later. He even helped me set them back up, including moving furniture around to do so. Prices were very reasonable. I highly recommend doing business with him!
