Winter is Coming! Here are our Cold-Weather Window Cleaning Tips for Homeowners

As winter rolls in, most of us start bundling up and staying indoors as much as possible. But what about those windows? Are they doomed to stay dirty until spring? As the go-to experts for all-things window cleaning, we’re here to tackle the frequently asked question: When is it just too darn cold to wash your windows?

The Impact of Cold Weather on Window Cleaning

Winter weather can throw a curveball at your window cleaning plans, but fear not, there’s still hope. Here’s the lowdown on how the cold affects window cleaning:

  1. Freezing Temps: When the thermometer starts flirting with freezing, washing windows gets trickier. Water can freeze before you even finish the job, leaving you with streaks and smudges galore.
  2. Safety First: Cold weather can turn surfaces, including windows, into icy hazards. Slip-sliding around while cleaning isn’t exactly fun, and it’s potentially dangerous. 
  3. Product Pitfalls: Some common window cleaning solutions just don’t cut it in the cold. They might freeze up, making them about as useful as a snow shovel in July. 
  4. Waiting Game: Cold temps equal longer drying times. So, if you want to admire those spotless windows ASAP, you might have to wait a bit longer in the winter.

  4. Timing is Everything: If you haven’t already, you should schedule your winter cleaning before December rolls around. That way, you’ll have clear windows before winter, without the cold-related hassles.
