Free Window Cleaning Tips

Do you hate cleaning windows? Every time you think about doing it, do you find an excuse do to something else? Do you want a simpler, easier way to get smear free windows in minimum time with minimum effort?

Premier Cleaning, Essex’s and London’s leading window cleaning company, have over 20 years expertise in this area and can help you achieve a smear free shine quickly, simply and safely.

There are 2 methods, as a professional cleaning company, we would recommend:

A) Using the traditional win wash and squeegee method.
This method does involve some practice to achieve good results but once you have perfected it, you will get smear free results every time. Homebase and other good D.I.Y Stores stock the necessary equipment.

  1. Apply a soapy solution to the window using a win wash.

  2. Squeegee all soap from the window. There are 2 ways you can use the squeegee:

        i) You can move the squeegee from the top left corner to the right working down in one motion. This way requires a little practice to perfect.

        ii) You can pull the squeegee from the top of the window down to the bottom, repeating this process from left to right until the entire pane has been cleaned.

  3. Wipe all edges with a microfiber cloth to remove all traces of soap/water residue.

B) A good proprietary window cleaning solution and a microfiber cloth.
This is a simple way of achieving excellent results. We have tested many different products over the years and have found AMWAYS “L.O.C. Glass Cleaner” to be the most effective.

  1. Apply the cleaning solution directly to the window preferably using a sprayer.

  2. Use a microfibre cloth in either a vertical or horizontal motion to wipe the window clean.

This second method would be our preference due to its simplicity and ease of use. It is also much more cost effective than buying tools. Amway glass cleaner is less that £2 per canister and goes a very long way.

If you would like more information on ordering Amway products please contact us today or call FREEPHONE 0800 612 4590, and we will happily help you.

For your own safety we would recommend you only clean your inside windows yourself, unless you can carry out your external window cleaning in a completely safe manner.

This would include cleaning from the inside without having to hang out of the window or ensuring you are using a set of good quality ladders that are being footed by someone else, providing you are confident to do so.

Please be careful never to over reach, this is a contributing factor to many accidents involving ladders.

Please be aware that health and safety regulations suggest you should not use ladders on anything higher than 2 storeys.

If you would like your external windows cleaned we would strongly recommend using a professional window cleaner always; the minimal cost involved is far outweighed by the superior results achieved and the importance of not putting your personal safety at risk.

The number of accidents on ladders has increased by over 62% in the last decade (sourced from the BBC - see link below).
