Cleaning Windows in Freezing Winter Temperatures in Prince William County, VA
Frigid temperatures can put a damper on certain day to day activities, like driving on icy roads, keeping warm and making sure our pets are comfortable. Keeping the house clean usually doesn’t have anything to do with what the weather outside is like unless you are discussing the outside of your homes windows. The main problem with cold weather window cleaning is that the water freezes on the glass before you even have a chance to squeegee the glass surface. This can end up leaving an icy mess on the outside of your windows and in some cases leave them more dirty than they were when you started.
Hot or Cold Water for Winter Window Washing
If your windows are in need of a cleaning but the temperatures outside are freezing or worse, below freezing, there are a few tips to consider if you have decided to take this task on by yourself. Fill your bucket with extremely hot water, this will allow you to squeegee the water off of your window before it reaches a freezing temperature and sticks to the surface of your window. While this method is pretty effective, it is also very time consuming, as you must constantly replace the water in your bucket with hot water, as the outside temperatures will rapidly reduce the temperature of the water in your bucket.
Window Cleaning with Windshield Washer Fluid
Another option that home owners go with when cleaning the outside of their windows in freezing temperatures is using windshield washer fluid. Windshield washer fluid contains methanol, which will prevent water from freezing that is 20 degrees in temperature or higher. Obviously this method will be ineffective if it is colder than 20 degrees outside. The other downfall of using windshield washer fluid is that it can get quite expensive if you are cleaning a large number of windows.
