With summer here now, you may find that more than just dirt is finding its way on to your windows. The animals and insects are much more active this time of the year, as are the kids in the neighborhood. Both of which can lead to you finding some very interesting messes.
If you do find something beyond dirt on your windows, regardless of the source, it is best to clean it up right away.
Bird Poop on Your Windows
Bird poop just happens, there are ways to prevent it from happening on your windows, but that is something we will cover another time. For now, the most important thing to know is how to clean it up when it does happen.
If bird poop stays on your windows for too long, it will get hard and be even more difficult to remove. So, as soon as you find it spray down your windows down and try to get as much of the bird poop off as you can. Then take a squeegee or a window scraper and scrape off more with some elbow grease. Once most of the droppings are off, finish up by using window cleaner on the window to clean the rest.
Bee Poop on Your Windows
Ever have mysterious yellow spots show up in your windows? At first you might think that it is just pollen that got stuck to your window until you take a closer look. These yellow spots are actually stuck on your windows pretty good, and while they may slightly look like pollen, you know that it isn’t.
These yellow spots are actually bee poop. Fortunately, not every homeowner has to deal with this, as it only shows up on the windows of those that happen to be under the flight path of a beehive.
To get rid of the bee poop, call in a professional that can clean your windows of this yellow mess without damaging the glass. There are special techniques, cleaning products, and equipment they use to be able to get your windows clean that most likely you cannot afford or even have access to.
You could also use grade 0000 steel wool on wet glass to remove the bee poop. Just be very, very, very careful or you will end up with damaged glass.
