It makes a huge difference to keep up with a routine spring cleaning, especially for windows that require a little bit more attention. To ensure that you’ll be able to clean your replacement windows effectively, Renewal by Andersen® of Long Island shares some tips below.

Spring Cleaning Tips

Tools for Spring-Cleaning Your Windows

Prepare the following before you start cleaning your windows:

1. Vacuum

2. A bucket filled with a mixture of water and soap

3. Dry brush

4. Sponge

5. Squeegee

6. Window cleaning solution (equal parts white vinegar and water)

7. Brown paper or newspaper

8. Microfiber cloth

9. Dry lint-free cloth

How to Clean Your Windows

1. Much like in windows installation, make sure to prepare the tools beforehand.

2. Get rid of loose dirt or debris using a vacuum cleaner. This will makes things easier for you to do a thorough clean later. 

3. Using soapy water, wash the window glass on both sides and take a pass with your cleaner and rag.

4. Use a microfiber cloth or squeegee to dry the glass and keep it streak- and lint-free. 

5. Vacuum your window tracks and polish using a detail brush.


1. Cleaning windows can sometimes be challenging, especially on the upper floors. In this case, it’s best to hire a professional so that the task can be done safely and properly. You can also check if your windows can be tilted inward for easy cleaning.

2. Do not neglect window coverings. Spring-cleaning your windows will be less effective if you forget about your blinds and curtains. That said, wipe the dust from all the blinds, clean your window curtain rods and wash the curtains. You may also vacuum them.
