4 Important Steps to Clean the Window

Windows are an important source of light in the home, so it is very important to maintain the cleanliness of the glass window. There are many ways to wash windows including detergents, tools like squeegees and even robotic window cleaner. In fact, cleaning windows can be very simple, and no specific detergent is needed. Let us share the 4 important steps and skills of window cleaning.

The aluminium windows must be cleaned thoroughly, and the following four parts are indispensable:

Plastic edgeWindow frameWindow HingeGlass

1. Plastic edge cleaning

Mouldy glass strips (silicone sealant) are very common after long-term usage and are usually difficult to be cleaned. Just like the cleaning of silicone sealant in toilets, bleach water can be used to soak cloth or paper strips and cover the mouldy part. Depending on the situation, the mould can probably be removed in about half an hour. If you want to completely remove the stubborn mould, 3M
Mildew Remover can penetrate into the bottom layer of the silicone sealant to remove the mould roots to prevent future troubles.

2. Window frame cleaning

Generally, window frames are made of aluminium. Dust easily accumulates on the frame. Few people pay attention to the cleanliness of frames during the cleaning process. In fact, the daily washing of window frames is very simple. You only need to prepare some water, add a spoonful of detergent, and after stirring, wipe the window frames with a cloth moistened with detergent water. No special detergent is required.

If some stains have eroded into the aluminium window frame, you can use 200 grit or below silicon carbide paper. The texture of the silicon carbide paper is relatively fine and suitable for metal surfaces. As long as the paper is wetted and polished on the stains on the window frame, the stains can be wiped away.

3. Window hinge cleaning

Few people pay attention to aluminium window hinges. A lot of dust is accumulated on the surface after long-term exposure to the outdoor environment. It is difficult to be cleaned with a rag. You can use an old dry toothbrush to brush the dirt. Then, try to wipe it with a dry cloth. After the hinge is free of dust, you can use detergent to clean it, because the wet dust will get stuck in the hinge, which increases the difficulty of cleaning.

4. Glass cleaning

The glass cleanliness affects the brightness of the room, so cleaning the glass is the key. Remember cleaning window glass should be the last step. The window wiping cloth should not be easily pilled. Dip it with detergent and wring it dry. You should wipe it up and down and prevent wiping back and forth to maximize efficiency.
