How To Get Hard-To-Reach Windows Clean

If you have a lot of windows in your house, then it can be hard to keep them all cleaned, especially if you have a two-story house or some of the windows are in hard-to-reach areas, such as behind bushes or other barriers. There are some things you can do to clean the outside of the windows that you normally have a very hard time with and this article will educate you on them.

Use a power washer

You can use a power washer to spray the windows clean from a distance. You do want to be careful not to blow the water at them on so high of a pressure and from so close that it can cause them to break. However, with a power washer the water should reach and clean dirt and dust off. You won't be able to get the window perfect with this method since spots will be left, but it can be better than leaving the windows very dirty.

Use an extendable squeegee

It may be worth it for you to purchase an extendable squeegee for these windows. This type of squeegee will have a sponge on one side and a rubber wiper on the other side. It will also have a handle similar to a broom handle that you can make longer by twisting or telescoping it. If you are using this method, you may want to hose the windows down first so you won't have to scrub so hard to remove stubborn dirt from the windows, because the extension pole won't allow for you to put much muscle behind your scrubbing.

Remove one window

If you are sure you can remove the side of the windows that opens, then you can remove that window and clean it inside the house. Then, you can use a regular length squeegee to clean the outside. You do want to be sure the pole on that squeegee is long enough to reach the whole window without you needing to lean out so there is no chance of you falling.

Hire a professional

The best and easiest way for you to get those hard-to-reach outside windows as clean as possible is to hire a professional window cleaner. They will have all the necessary supplies to get them as clean as possible so you don't have to deal with trying to clean them yourself, only to find out they have spots or smudges you can't get off them. Contact a company like Elite Clean Up for more information.
