Cleaning Tips for Your Storefront Windows

Your storefront window may be the first impression you make on potential customers who pass by your business, particularly if you have a beautiful display or colorful signage. One of the biggest mistakes your business can make with storefront windows is failing to keep storefront displays clean. Foggy or dirty windows are noticeable. They’re also easily fixed. Ryan’s all-glass takes a look at some of the best cleaning tips for your storefront display to ensure your business makes a great first impression. 

Use the Right Equipment

The most common mistake made when cleaning windows, and the easiest one to avoid, is using the wrong equipment. Cleaning windows with the wrong rag or cleaning solvent can leave streaks and make your storefront windows harder to clean in the future. It’s tricky to find the right tools to clean your storefront display because of how big the surface of the glass is. A strip washer coupled with the right solvent offers a great way to clean the window. After cleaning, the best way to dry your windows is with a squeegee. 

Dry Correctly

You must dry your windows properly when you clean them, especially the side that is facing the street. If you don’t, debris and particles can accumulate, and streaks may remain once the window dries. A squeegee is the best way to dry your windows because it covers a lot of surface area and it’s easy to use. Once you finish with the squeegee, get rid of any additional liquid left behind. A microfiber cloth is one option, but take care to wipe the glass consistently and avoid wiping areas that are already dry. In fact, dabbing your window after squeegeeing is more effective because it simply absorbs any leftover water and does not leave behind streaks. 

Don’t Neglect the Inside 

Another easy mistake to make when cleaning storefront windows is to neglect the inside of the window. Naturally, the street-facing side of the window accumulates more debris and grime, simply because it’s outdoors. However, that doesn’t mean dust and grime don’t collect on the inside of the pane. Neglecting to clean the inside of the window can negate the work you do on the outside of the display.

These glass features make your business and your building more attractive to customers and clients. They also keep your customers safe and your building comfortable. We offer a variety of exterior features at Ryan’s all-glass. In today’s blog post, we examine several types of exterior features, including storefront windows, aluminum entries, and curtain walls.

Storefront Window Displays

Ryan’s all-glass works with aluminum entries to provide functional and secure storefront entry for your customers or clients. Our commercial glazing department creates a standard or custom storefront solution for aluminum entries. We walk you through the entire process and complete the installation on time.

Curtain Walls

Curtain walls are common exterior features, yet many people might not even know what they are. Essentially, glass curtain walls are an alternative to a solid surface wall. This alternative allows you to enclose multiple floors of a building and still enjoy the natural light of the outdoors. Large solid glass surfaces can be expensive, and curtain walls allow you to have glass features for these larger surfaces at a more affordable price. Curtain walls also create energy efficiency. Our team at Ryan’s all-glass works with you to find the most efficient glazing option for your business.

Creating a Storefront Window Display that People Won’t Forget

If you own a business that depends on foot traffic, your storefront window display will be vital for your ability to promote your products. Creating the best storefront display can be difficult and requires strategy and planning. What items do you want to promote? What items do potential customers want to see before they walk into your store? What will your glass needs be for your storefront window? In today’s blog post, Ryan’s all-glass will take a look at how you can create a storefront display that people won’t forget.

Keeping Your Storefront Window Clean

The most important aspect of a strong storefront display is keeping the glass and display area clean and organized. The storefront window is the only thing between potential customers and your merchandise, so you should keep it clean and clear. You can use your commercial storefront glass to your advantage with branding accessories like lettering and logos.

You will also need to keep your display organized. Your display needs to be aesthetically attractive to potential customers, and disorganization or clutter in the display can drive potential customers away.

Utilize Your Space Efficiently

You only have so much space to work with in your storefront display. It’s important that you are utilizing your space efficiently and not wasting your space with clutter or disorganization. You need to be intentional with what items you are putting in your storefront display. An easy way to do this is to create seasonal campaigns. Rather than cramming all of your items into a small space, rotate items that are more popular during certain times of the year.

Design Your Display

You don’t just want to put products in your storefront window at random, you want to carefully design your storefront display to promote your products. Your storefront display is a great tool for getting potential customers in your doors, but a display that is cluttered or lacks design can be counterproductive. Utilize design elements like lighting and color to make your display more aesthetically pleasing.

Tips for Maintaining Storefront Windows

Storefront window

For businesses with foot traffic, there are few things more important than storefront windows. As the saying goes, you never get a second chance to make a first impression, and your storefront display is the best first impression you will get with customers. For that reason, it is crucial that your displays are the best that they can be. In today’s blog post, Ryan’s all-glass will give some tips for maintaining your storefront windows.

Clean, Clean, Clean

Nothing is less appealing to potential customers than smudgy, dirty storefront windows. Failing to clean your windows is not only unprofessional, but it doesn’t present your products well. If you want to make a good impression, you will need to clean your windows regularly. Cleaning your storefront display goes beyond just the windows, frames and display features should also be free of dust and grime.

Organize Your Storefront Windows

The effectiveness of your storefront display will come down to your organization. It’s important to feature the products that customers want and organize the display in such a way that they see what they are looking for. Secure and organized storefront displays will prevent your items from falling and prevent accidental damage to your storefront windows.

Don’t Neglect Damage

Damage to storefront windows is a big deal. While a shattered window would require emergency glass repair, it is easy to neglect small nicks and cracks. That, however, is a big mistake. When you see damage to your storefront window, whether that be a crack or a scratch, you will need to take care of it before it becomes a bigger problem. A window with a small crack is much more likely to shatter, so don’t neglect what might seem to be minor damage.
