Before diving into the cleaning process, its essential to familiarize yourself with sash windows. Sash windows have been a popular feature of British homes for centuries, and they remain so today. They are characterised by two moveable panels or sashes, that slide up and down past each other within a frame. The top sash and bottom sash are usually held in place by a system of weights and pulleys, which creates a balanced counterweight effect.
At Sash Windows Berkshire, we understand that cleaning sash windows can be a daunting task, especially if you haven't done it before. However, with the right tools and techniques, cleaning your sash windows can be completed in no time.
Before starting the cleaning process, ensure that you have all the necessary cleaning tools. Heres what youll need:
The first step is to clean the glass. Start by preparing the cleaning solution. Mix one part vinegar with three parts of warm water. Alternatively, use a commercial glass cleaner.
Dip the sponge or soft cloth into the cleaning solution and squeeze out the excess water. Use the damp sponge to wipe away the dirt and grime from the glass. Use a squeegee to remove any excess water and ensure that the glass is streak-free.
Once youve cleaned the glass, its time to tackle the window frame. Use a scraper or razor blade to remove any stubborn dirt or debris that has built up on the frame. Then, using a sponge or soft cloth, wash the frame with warm soapy water.
After cleaning the frame, rinse it with warm water, and then dry it with a clean rag or a dry sponge.
To clean the sash, start by lifting the bottom sash as far as it will go. Use a damp sponge to wipe the entire surface of the sash, making sure to clean all of the corners and edges. If the sash is too dirty, you may need to use a scraper or razor blade to remove any stubborn dirt.
After cleaning the bottom sash, lift the top sash and repeat the process. Finally, close the windows and wipe down the exterior sashes as well.
To prevent streaks and watermarks, use old newspapers or a clean rag to dry the sash windows. This will also ensure that the windows stay clean for longer. If you notice any damage or cracks on the sash or frame, contact Sash Windows Berkshire immediately for repairs.
