First impressions are important, and clean windows are critical to making a great first impression. Every window in your home should be cleaned inside and out so that buyers don’t notice dust, bugs and grime when they look outside – or peek inside. Cleaning takes a bit of time to do it right, but the benefits to home sellers is well worth the effort.
Here are a few tips on cleaning your windows from professional window cleaner Tim Jarvis, owner of Jarvis Enterprises.
- Remove screens prior to cleaning your windows. If the screens are dirty, wash them with a water hose.
- Use triple-concentrated Dawn dish soap to clean your windows. It will cut through the dirtiest grime and grease.
- Use a soft rubber squeegee to remove the soap and water after cleaning.
- Fine textured #0000 steel wool works wonders on stubborn bug residue without scratching the glass.
Of course, the easiest and fastest way to clean your windows prior to listing your home is to contact a professional window cleaning company such as Jarvis Enterprises!
