Looking back over the last few months, we noticed that our previous post on cleaning your windows was one of our most popular to date. We think that tells us something; you guys either love cleaning windows, or you just like a great tip!
As you know, we have been experts in windows in Dublin for many decades. We have picked up a few window cleaning hints and tips along the way – and we are all too happy to share them with you.
As we have said many times before, one of the great things about uPVC windows and doors is that they require very little maintenance. There are hundreds of chemical cleaning products available on the market today (some of which would burn a hole in your pocket). However, the truth is you do NOT need to spend big to get sparkling windows. Ordinary run of the mill everyday items such as washing-up liquid and vinegar will do just as good a job (if not better) than special so-called “window cleaners.”
Yes, yes, we know that steam cleaners are more expensive than your average Mr. Muscle window cleaner. It may sound as if we are shooting ourselves in the foot by contradicting ourselves…but sit tight!
We see steam cleaners as an investment. You can buy a decent steam cleaner from the likes of this one (pictured left) from the lovely people at D.I.D. Electrical which comes in just under €60.
The great thing about steam cleaners is that they last the test of time. This particular model does not require any special solutions – just plain water. Steam cleaners are great not only for windows, but for floors, upholstery, tiles, and mirrors too. The high temperature of the steam kills bacteria, dust mites and other allergens, as well as dirt and grime. We promise…they leave your windows nothing short of sparkling!
And no, we don’t have any kind of agreement with D.I.D Electrical – we just like this particular product!
