Windows are a huge factor in enhancing the appeal of your property, from standard double glazed windows, to an entire conservatory. Keeping your windows clean all year round is therefore a priority for many homeowners, ensuring the house looks tidy and hygienic at all times.

Ensuring your windows are up to standard at all times can be a difficult task to keep on top of, so our team at Windows Direct London have provided our top tips to keeping the dirt at bay.

Streak free windows

A common problem homeowners will experience when washing windows is that they streak afterwards, making them look unappealing for your home. Using a squeegee to remove water will help reduce the chance of streaks, starting at the top and working your way down to the bottom of the window.

Keep trees and bushes back

If you have a lot of trees and shrubbery in your garden, dust and debris can quickly gather on your windows, making them dirty. Keeping your trees trimmed back will not only keep your windows cleaner, but will also ensure your home looks better, too.

Dusty blinds

If your blinds are prone to dust, it’s probably because there is too much static present. Try using an antistatic spray immediately after cleaning them to help keep the dust at bay.



A dirty windowsill can ruin the aesthetic of your windows instantly, so keeping these clean and tidy all year round should be a priority in your cleaning routine. A simple wipe down with a damp cloth should keep your windowsills looking fresh, and cleaner frames will keep your windows clean for longer, too.

Use the exhaust fan

When cooking, the windows in your kitchen can fog up, and get spattered with oils and grease. If left unattended, your windows will begin to look stained and grimy in no time. To help them stay cleaner for longer, turning on your kitchen exhaust fan will reduce the amount of oil and grease in the area.

Pay attention to both sides

There is little point in regularly wiping down the inside of your windows but ignoring the exterior – or vice versa. Be sure to regularly clean both sides, or enlist the services of a window cleaning company, to keep your windows streak free at all times.
