Window Cleaning Made Easy: Tips from the Pros


Cleaning windows may seem like a daunting task, but with the right tools and techniques, it can be a breeze. Professional window cleaners have mastered the art of streak-free windows, and now you can too. In this article, we will share some tips from the pros on how to achieve spotless windows with ease.

Tips from the Pros

1. Use the Right Tools: One of the most important aspects of window cleaning is using the right tools. Invest in a good quality squeegee, microfiber cloth, and a bucket with a solution of water and a mild detergent. Avoid using paper towels as they can leave behind lint and streaks.

2. Start from the Top: When cleaning windows, always start from the top and work your way down. This will prevent drips and streaks from forming on already cleaned areas. Use the squeegee in long, horizontal strokes to remove excess water and dirt.

3. Clean in Sections: To ensure a thorough clean, divide your windows into sections and clean one section at a time. This will prevent you from missing any spots and will make the task more manageable.

4. Use a Vinegar Solution: For an eco-friendly and effective window cleaner, mix equal parts of water and white vinegar in a spray bottle. Spray the solution onto the window and wipe it off with a microfiber cloth. Vinegar is a natural disinfectant and will leave your windows sparkling clean.

5. Don’t Forget the Frames: While cleaning the glass is important, don’t neglect the window frames. Use a damp cloth or a toothbrush to remove dirt and grime from the frames. This will give your windows a polished look and prevent dirt from building up over time.

6. Buff with a Dry Cloth: After cleaning the windows, use a dry microfiber cloth to buff away any remaining streaks. This will give your windows a streak-free shine and will leave them looking spotless.


Q: How often should I clean my windows?

A: It is recommended to clean your windows at least twice a year, preferably in the spring and fall. However, if you live in a dusty area or have pets, you may need to clean them more frequently.

Q: Can I use newspaper to clean my windows?

A: While some people swear by using newspaper to clean windows, it can leave behind lint and streaks. It is best to use a microfiber cloth or squeegee for a streak-free finish.

Q: What is the best time of day to clean windows?

A: The best time to clean windows is on a cloudy day or in the early morning or late afternoon. Cleaning windows in direct sunlight can cause the solution to dry too quickly, leaving behind streaks.

In conclusion, window cleaning doesn’t have to be a daunting task. By following these tips from the pros and using the right tools and techniques, you can achieve spotless windows with ease. Remember to clean your windows at least twice a year and to pay attention to the frames for a thorough clean. With a little practice and patience, you can have streak-free windows that will brighten up your home.

“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!
