3 Window Cleaning Tips During Cold Weather

You don’t need to forgo cleaning your windows just because winter has hit. In fact, there are plenty of ways for you to keep the windows inside your home or your business looking as streak-free and shiny as possible, even if it’s ten below. At Minch Professional Cleaning Services, LLC, we have a few cold weather cleaning tips that are sure to keep your windows looking great all winter long:

1. Use cold water.

During the winter, you can give your home windows a good clean with just a little bit of cold water. The science behind it is kind of interesting. Since glass is non-porous and rigid, it doesn’t offer much room for stress. This means that heat causes the glass to expand, which will then cause it to contract. Using hot water to clean glass windows increase the chances of your windows cracking. Cold water, on the other hand, will safely clean your windows and eliminate any chances of ending up with cracked glass.

2. Try vinegar and water.

Using a simple vinegar and water solution is another great option for winter window cleaning. Simply use a clean spray bottle and add ⅛ cup of vinegar, then fill to the top with water. You can easily clean both interior and exterior windows with this simple solution. We recommend using a lint-free cloth as well. If you still have questions about how to clean your windows during the winter season, then get in touch with our team at Minch Professional Cleaning Services, LLC. Our cleaning company is always prepared to help you achieve a healthy and happy home.

3. Opt for alcohol and salt.

One window cleaning solution that might not be so familiar is one that uses alcohol and salt water. Add three tablespoons of alcohol to your vinegar and water spray solution. Mix this solution until dissolved, and then spray your windows. Wipe clean with a soft cloth. If your windows have a lot of spots on them, pre-treat them by spraying with one of your solutions, and then let sit for about fifteen minutes. Scrub clean with a rag and then wipe clean.
