Windows provide illumination and energy-efficiency to a home, therefore, it is important to maintain them with proper care – including keeping them clean. It is easy to wipe your windows when you are doing a general cleaning inside your house, but how is it to clean windows on the outside?
None of us want to have a view of our windows being so dirty and dusty on the outside, so they need to be cleaned as well. Many homeowners find themselves in a dilemma on how to proceed to cleaning their windows on the outside, specifically if they are hard to reach.
In this blog post, we will mention some methods that can be used to clean windows that are high located or of difficult access, on the outside.
Ways To Clean Outside Windows You Can’t Reach
Use a ladder
The most common method used to clean high windows on the outside is by climbing a ladder. Get a safety helmet and safety gear, gloves and your cleaning kit – a bucket, soap, window-cleaning solution, and a squeegee.
Climb your ladder – make sure it is safe to do so –, spray the window-cleaning solution and wipe your window clean with the squeegee (or paper towel).
Get a mop or an extended wiper
If, for some reason, you can’t extend your arm to reach the window and wipe it with the squeegee or the paper towel, get a mop or an extended wiper. The practicality of this method is in you dipping the tool into the bucket containing the window-cleaning solution, and wiping it from a far and higher place than you could have reached with your own arm.
Buy a hose
Another quick and efficient way to clean windows that are hard to reach is by using hoses that are fabricated for this purpose. Water-fed poles have the mixture necessary to clean windows in them, and all you need to do is turn them on and spray it on your window.
