Window cleaning, also known as window washing, is an exterior cleaning of interior structural glass used primarily for decorative, lighting, or structural purposes. It may be performed manually, with a wide range of tools to access and clean interior windows, as well as the exterior windows.
Windows may be cleaned with just soap and water, though it is not recommended. However, there are many chemicals and cleaners that are used to clean windows and the window-washing process must be done correctly. The cleaning of interior and exterior windows is often combined in order to accomplish the best results for the property owner.
Before any cleaning activity begins, the windows must be swept or mopped so the cleaning solutions do not get absorbed into the fabric of the window. The outside surface is then mopped to remove debris that may have become stuck in the window frame or on the glass. This cleaning should be performed before any window washing activity is done. If the exterior surface of the glass is dirty, the cleaning solution is applied on it and rinsed off with water.
Window cleaning chemicals are most often cleaners made of mild soap and water. Other cleaner types include bleach, dishwashing liquid, and ammonia-based cleaner. All cleaners are available at home improvement stores and on the internet. If the windows appear to have a lot of debris, a vacuum cleaner may be necessary. The cleaner must be used carefully and the area around the glass should be washed thoroughly. If the cleaning agent is too strong, it may cause damage to the fabric of the window.
Many cleaners are automatic and some include a power outlet. Some cleaners can be operated manually and include brushes, trays, and tools. A window cleaning robot is a small robotic robot that works by rotating and sucking the cleaning solution into a tank. These cleaners are especially useful for large structures like commercial buildings that can not fit large tanks or buckets. They can be battery operated or motorized.
Many cleaning tools come with a small brush to clean the edges of windows or at the bottom of windows to prevent debris from getting trapped within the cleaning solution. Cleaners used for exterior cleaning are usually larger and are used to get around the large, hard to reach areas that are hard to reach with a vacuum cleaner. and brush.
