Say Goodbye to Streaks: Pro Tips for Perfectly Clean Windows


Having sparkling clean windows can make a huge difference in the overall appearance of your home. But achieving streak-free, perfectly clean windows can be a challenging task. From fingerprints to water spots, there are many factors that can lead to streaks on your windows. However, with the right techniques and tools, you can say goodbye to streaks and achieve flawless windows every time.

Tips for Cleaning Your Windows

1. Use the right cleaning solution: When it comes to cleaning windows, using the right cleaning solution is key. Avoid using harsh chemicals that can leave streaks or damage your windows. Instead, opt for a homemade solution of water and vinegar or a commercial glass cleaner specifically designed for windows.

2. Invest in a good squeegee: A squeegee is an essential tool for achieving streak-free windows. Make sure to choose a high-quality squeegee with a rubber blade that can effectively remove water and dirt from your windows without leaving streaks behind.

3. Use a microfiber cloth: After using a squeegee, use a microfiber cloth to wipe away any remaining water or cleaning solution from your windows. Microfiber cloths are highly absorbent and can help to prevent streaks and water spots.

4. Clean in the right weather conditions: Avoid cleaning your windows on a sunny day or when the temperature is too hot. Heat can cause cleaning solution to dry quickly, leading to streaks on your windows. Instead, choose a cloudy day or clean your windows in the early morning or late evening when the temperature is cooler.

5. Don’t forget the window frames: While it’s important to focus on cleaning the glass of your windows, don’t forget to clean the window frames as well. Use a damp cloth or a soft brush to remove dirt and dust from the frames before cleaning the glass.

“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!
