Spotless Windows for Stunning Views: Window Cleaning Techniques for AirBnB Hosts

Spotless Windows for Stunning Views: Window Cleaning Techniques for AirBnB Hosts

Clear and sparkling windows not only enhance the aesthetic appeal of your AirBnB property, but also allow guests to fully enjoy the stunning views. Proper window cleaning is essential to maintaining a bright and inviting atmosphere. Here are effective techniques for achieving spotless windows:

1. Gather your supplies: Gather all the supplies you’ll need, including a bucket, squeegee, microfiber cloth, window cleaner (or DIY solution), and a scrubber or sponge.

2. Choose the right time: Choose a cloudy day or a time when direct sunlight isn’t shining on the windows. Sunlight can cause the cleaning solution to dry too quickly, leaving streaks.

3. Dust and vacuum: Start by dusting windowsills, frames and corners. Vacuum or brush away cobwebs and dirt from the windowsill before cleaning.

4. Prepare the cleaning solution: If using a commercial cleaner, follow the manufacturer’s instructions. For a DIY solution, mix water with a small amount of vinegar or dish soap.

5. Apply the solution: Dip a scouring pad or sponge into the cleaning solution and gently scrub the window surface, starting at the top. Pay particular attention to any stains or dirt.

6. Squeegee technique: Using a squeegee, start at the top and pull down in a straight line. Wipe the squeegee blade with a clean cloth after each pass to prevent streaking.

7. Wipe dry: After squeegeeing, use a dry microfiber cloth to wipe off any remaining moisture along the edges of the window.

8. Treat streaks: If you see streaks, use a clean, dry microfiber cloth to buff them out in a circular motion. Make sure the cloth is completely dry.

9. Clean window frames and sills: Don’t forget to clean window frames and sills with a damp cloth or sponge.

10. Consider window coverings: Use blinds, curtains or shades to protect windows from dust and dirt between cleanings.

11. Repeat regularly: Regular window cleaning prevents stubborn build-up and makes each cleaning session easier.

12. Safety first: If you have hard-to-reach windows, consider hiring a professional for high or hard-to-reach windows.

13. Green options: Consider using environmentally friendly window cleaning solutions to minimise your impact on the environment.

14. Look after your screens: Clean windows separately by gently scrubbing with a soft brush and rinsing with water.

Spotless windows create a sense of cleanliness and provide an unobstructed view for your guests. Make these window cleaning techniques part of your routine to keep your AirBnB property looking its best.
