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.

Ryan’s all-glass: The Best Way to Clean Your Windows

Cleaning windows is a vital component of regular maintenance for both homes and workplaces. When you fail to clean windows regularly, they will get dirty, become streaky, and even develop hard-to-remove stains. However, cleaning your windows with the wrong glass cleaner or the wrong material can cause more problems than it fixes. In today’s blog post, Ryan’s all-glass talks about some easy tips for cleaning your windows.

Clean Your Windows at Least Once a Month

The first step towards clean and shiny windows is regular cleaning. Ryan’s all-glass recommends cleaning your windows at least once a month, if not more, even if your windows don’t appear dirty. Over time, your windows accumulate dust and other small particles. Those particles are much harder to remove if you don’t clean your windows regularly.

Clear All Debris

Remove all significant debris from the glass surface when cleaning your windows. Again, regular washing plays a pivotal role in this step. Clearing all debris from the surface helps to focus your cleaning on the glass itself. When you attempt to wash glass with debris on it, you merely rearrange the dirt or dust that made the glass dirty rather than cleaning the window. Dust and particles are much easier to dust off and remove after you clear away debris.  

Use the Right Glass Cleaner

Arguably the most crucial step when cleaning windows is finding the right glass cleaner. At Ryan’s all-glass, we highly recommend the glass cleaner we provide. That way, your windows get the best possible clean. The right glass cleaner cuts through stains, removes grease and grime, and leaves windows with a brand new shine.

Use the Right Cloth or Rag

Creating streaks represents one of the most common problems people run into when cleaning windows. Using the wrong cloth or rag on a window is typically the source of these streaks. That’s why it’s important to find the right material to clean your glass. Ryan’s all-glass recommends a microfiber rag to avoid streaks. If you don’t have a microfiber rag, you will probably be better off using a simple paper towel compared to a dish rag or towel.
