Clean windows not only add street appeal to your property, but also make sure that the windows do not need to be replaced anytime soon. This can be a great way to cut the costs for replacing windows.

Cleaning windows might seem like a walk in the park, but it surely is not. Without the proper tools, it can be a disastrous job. Windows will be packed with scratches and blotches that, over time, can ruin the beauty of the windows.

Professional equipment and tools are needed to appropriately clean the windows and keep them shiny. Companies and stores around the world have numerous professional window cleaner tools to offer. All you need to do is find it and get to the job.


· Consequences for not using proper tools:

In case you were thinking of using unprofessional methods for cleaning the windows do take the following into consideration:

1. Micro scratches:

New glass even ones that are 5 to 10 years old, may have a defect which causes, glass dust to get fused to the window pane during the tempering process.

This dust dislodges and gets snowploughed across the window, when the wrong toll is used for cleaning, causing micro scratches, which becomes visible as the sun shines through the glass.

2. Paper lint:

You need to have proper knowledge about which window cleaning spray to use for your windows. A window cleaner with ammonia flash dries faster, leaving a trail of paper lint on your windows. This cannot be a pretty sight for anybody.
