Winter Window Cleaning Tips

If the sunshine exposes your dirty winter windows, it may mean it’s time to tackle your window cleaning before the weather breaks. With a few easy tips and some creative cleaning tools you can get the job done quickly and safely.

Cleaning from the Inside Out

Get started by gathering your supplies and cleaning all window interiors first. Often, this alone does the trick!

For double hung windows that offer easy cleaning by folding in, you can tackle the exteriors as well. There is likely to be less dust and grime on the windows than in the summer months, but be sure to have plenty clean cloths, spray and a squeegee.

Cleaning Window Exteriors in Winter

You may need to get creative, but it’s definitely possible to get those exteriors cleaned even when the temperatures are frigid.  Keep an eye on the weather forecast so you can select a day when snow will not block your access to the windows, and the temperature is tolerable to be outside long enough to get the job done.

Since the ground may be frozen or snowy, we do not recommend using a ladder to clean any exterior windows.  If possible, fold in the window for cleaning or use a squeegee extension. Simply spray the sponge side of your squeegee instead of the window, and use the extender for better access.

Just in case you have to split the project over several days, it is best to tackle one room at a time. Cleaning the window interior first is a great way to prioritize the windows that need cleaning the most!
