Dirty Windows in Summer?

All windows get unclean. It is something that can not be avoided. Even if your windows are made with self-cleaning glass (which has a grime-resistant covering), they are still going to need the occasional wash to keep them shimmering. The good news is, keeping the glass clean is quick and simple – as is cleaning up the frames (uPVC is particularly low-maintenance). You might have discovered, though, that dirt and gunk shows up more strongly when the sun is shining, which it is more difficult to make the glass look clean in the summertime, even after cleaning it. If you were questioning why this is the case, then here is all the information you require.

Specks of dirt in the sun

In brilliant sunshine, even the thinnest covering of dust is highlighted. Your windows may not be any dirtier than they were the day before, when the weather condition was dull and grey– it’s simply more apparent in the sun. The look of filthy windows on bright days is enhanced by the reality that specks of dust can cast little shadows, making the glass appearance grimier than it is. Sunlight can also show up streaks and smears that have been missed out on while homeowners have been washing their windows, which can either be very helpful or extremely discouraging!

Streaky windows

Typically, the only time window cleansing is an appealing prospect for homeowners is when it is sunny exterior. This is really the even worse time to wash them, as it is really challenging to prevent unsightly spots. The heat of the sun causes the water to evaporate faster, indicating soapy residue is left behind before you have the chance to wipe it off. This can be avoided by working rapidly and just washing small locations of glass at a time, however, in general, it is best to wait until there is a cool, cloudy day before getting out of the bucket, sponge and soapy water!

Cleaning uPVC windows thoroughly

Spotting dirt on your window frames is maybe a little simpler than with glass– especially on uPVC frames that are ended up in white. To clean your uPVC frames, use a non-abrasive cloth to prevent scratching the frames, and soapy water rather than harsh chemicals.
