As a reputable cleaning company in Orange County, SRS Cleaning has years of experience in keeping glass surfaces spotless. 

In this blog post, we’ll share with you eight insider secrets that will help you achieve crystal-clear glass surfaces that will make your guests go “Wow!”

Start with the right tools

Let’s face it, cleaning glass surfaces can be a hassle, especially if you don’t have the right tools. To achieve crystal clear glass, you’ll need a microfiber cloth, a squeegee, a bucket of warm water, and a cleaning solution. You can either buy a commercial glass cleaner or make your own by mixing equal parts of water and vinegar.

Dust off the surface

Before you start cleaning, make sure to dust off the glass surface with a dry microfiber cloth. This will remove any loose dirt or debris that could scratch the surface when you start wiping it.

Use a squeegee for windows

If you’re cleaning windows, using a squeegee is the most efficient way to get rid of streaks and water spots. Start from the top of the window and work your way down, wiping the blade of the squeegee with a clean cloth after each stroke.

Don’t forget the edges and corners

When cleaning glass surfaces, don’t forget to wipe the edges and corners. These areas tend to collect dirt and grime and can make the entire surface look dirty. Use a cotton swab or a toothbrush to get into the tight spaces.

Use a newspaper for mirrors

If you’re cleaning mirrors, skip the paper towels and use a crumpled-up newspaper instead. The ink in the newspaper will help remove stubborn streaks and leave your mirrors sparkling clean.

Avoid direct sunlight

Cleaning glass surfaces in direct sunlight can cause the cleaning solution to dry too quickly, leaving streaks and water spots. It’s best to clean your glass surfaces on a cloudy day or when the sun is not shining directly on them.

Dry the surface completely

After you’ve cleaned the glass surface, use a clean microfiber cloth to dry it completely. This will prevent water spots and streaks from forming. Make sure to get into the corners and edges.

Clean regularly

To keep your glass surfaces looking their best, it’s important to clean them regularly. Wipe them down with a microfiber cloth once a week, and deep clean them once a month. This will help prevent dirt and grime buildup and make your cleaning tasks much easier.

Achieving crystal clear glass surfaces is not rocket science, but it does require some insider secrets. Remember to start with the right tools, dust off the surface, use a squeegee for windows, don’t forget the edges and corners, use a newspaper for mirrors, avoid direct sunlight, dry the surface completely, and clean regularly.
