How To Clean Glass

Glass materials are increasingly preferred because of their durability and high aesthetics, bringing a luxurious look to housing projects and construction work. However, after some time of use, it is easy to become blurry and dusty if the glass is not cleaned regularly and appropriately.

Why should you clean your glasses regularly?

The Chicago school of architecture belongs to modern architecture and is also the beginning of the world-famous glass. Architects used glass to create the first skyscrapers' expansive windows in the nineteenth century. Later, the Chicago school of architecture was introduced globally and became prevalent in building design and construction.

Glass cleaning process with a squeegee

Step 1: Prepare a tool and glass cleaning chemicals

Depending on the area of the glass cleaning surface and the level of dirt, We choose the suitable glass cleaning tools and chemicals. If the glass is only dust and fingerprints, you can use a solution such as clean water, white vinegar, cornstarch, alcohol, etc., according to a separate formula to clean the glass

For stubborn stains that are difficult to clean with usual solutions, We use specialized glass cleaning chemicals to ensure the cleanliness and quality of the glass. 

Step 2: Glass cleaning

Dip the microfiber soft applicator wiper into the prepared chemical solution, and then wipe the surface of the glass. Choose the appropriate glass cleaning method based on the type of stain, and clean from top to bottom so that each successive layer overlaps the previous one. Then, dry the rubber clip with a soft cloth to remove the dirt and chemicals from the squeegee. Remove the water from the glass's edges with a dry cloth.

Notes on cleaning glass

Cleaning glass on a cloudy day

The sun can prematurely dry the window washing fluid, leaving residue and streaks. If you wait for a cloudy day to wash your windows, the cleaning solution will remain until you wipe it away, and you will end up with a brilliant streak-free shine.

Clean corners with cotton swabs

No matter how hard you try, residue seems to build up in the corners of the glass, and it can be very difficult to get to that residue unless you have the right tool. Cotton swabs are ideal for cleaning those hard-to-reach areas of the windows in your home. It's a perfect size and does the trick!​

Clean the glass from top to bottom

During the glass cleaning, you should be paid attention to the direction of cleaning. If you wipe from the bottom up, it will easily leave stains. Because the glass cleaning solution will drip during the cleaning process. 

Cleaning small parts

When cleaning glass, you should divide the glass into small areas that help you save chemicals and achieve higher efficiency. If spray on the whole of the glass, the liquid may dry before you clean it and easily leave stains on the surface.

Ensure safety when cleaning glass

In the cleaning process, you have to comply with the user manual and equip protective gear to ensure safety. In addition, for the facade glass, you can check equipment such as climbing rope, safety padlock, safety helmet, etc. At the same time, avoid sticky chemicals in the eyes and falling equipment during cleaning.
