How often should you clean your windows?

Do you know how often you should clean your windows? It turns out there's no one-size-fits-all answer to this question. It depends on several factors, such as where you live, how much sun hits your windows during different seasons and how often they get dirty from outside elements like bird droppings, pollen, or dust.

How often should you clean your windows?

Although there's no rule, as mentioned above, your windows should ideally be cleaned once per month to keep them looking their best.

If you live in a high-traffic area like the city centre, near a main road or airport, or near trees that shed leaves and pollen, you should probably clean them every few weeks.

The things you need to clean them

Cleaning your windows doesn't require a lot of products, but there are a few things that certainly make the job easier.

  • A non-abrasive cleaning solution Window cleaning solutions are usually vinegar-based to help add shine, remove streaks, and prevent damage to the surface of the window or the frame.
  • A microfiber cloth This type of cloth is best for cleaning windows due to being soft and won't scratch the glass, but also helps to prevent streaks when drying.
  • A Squeegee You should also use a squeegee to remove water from the window glass after cleaning. This will help prevent streaking on the glass surface when it dries off.

Should you clean them yourself or hire a professional?

Depending on where you live, the type of windows you have, and even how high up you live, you might feel that cleaning your own windows simply isn't possible or safe. In this case, you can look for a professional window cleaner or company that can help.

A professional window cleaner will generally come to your home once per month and clean the windows. However, depending on the type of service you book, most of them only clean the outside of the windows.

In this case, you should consider whether or not you're happy with taking care of cleaning the inside of the windows or perhaps think about hiring a professional domestic cleaning service that also covers cleaning the windows on the inside.

Generally speaking, you'll pay a bit more for this service because of the extra work involved, but overall it's worth it because the job will usually be done to a much higher standard.

How often you should clean your windows depends on various factors such as where you live and the climate.
