Equipment you’ll need to get started

  • A bucket of water
  • Dishwashing liquid
  • A dry cloth

The best steps for window cleaning in Abingdon

Because our Abingdon window cleaning services are so sought after by so many people in residential and commercial properties, we’ve decided to share the best tricks and steps to help you carry out your window cleaning. Here’s what you need to do:

Step 1: Prepare the water and dishwashing liquid solution (optional)

Add around one teaspoon of dishwashing liquid to a bucket of water. In summer, the water can be cold. In winter, it can be lukewarm. However, make sure not to use household items such as vinegar because although it’s an old wives’ tale that it works to get rid of streaks on your windows, the actual proof of this is lacking.

Step 2: Dip your sponge into the solution and apply it to your window

Our tip here is easy to follow. Simply dip the sponge in the water and dishwashing liquid solution, make sure to squeeze the sponge after dipping it so that it doesn’t drip everywhere and apply it to the window while targeting the bigger stains first. If you like, you can use pure water only and apply this to your window with your sponge.

Step 3: Use the squeegee to get rid of the solution on your windows

It’s time to put the squeegee to use by placing it on your window and using either horizontal or vertical strokes (working from the top to the bottom) to get rid of the excess moisture or soapy solution on your windows. Work methodically until every part of your window is clean. If you see some additional stains, simply apply the sponge to the stains while making sure not to scrub using the coarse part of the sponge and try to loosen the dirt. After this, apply the squeegee to the wet area and wipe away the water.

Step 4: Wipe the squeegee clean often

Your squeegee will accumulate dirt, water and the soapy solution as you use it. This is why we recommend that after every couple of strokes, you wipe it clean with your clean and dry cloth before continuing to wipe down the water and soapy solution off the window.
