How do you guys deal with window vents?


Recommended Posts

A lot of my first cleans on windows with vents have come out a right mess. I spend a lot of time scrubbing them, and rinsing first clean. Come back later that night and there's a lot of drip marks. Windows without the vents are perfect? Does this normally just happen first clean? My mate who works with me doesnt touch them with the pole but they come out perfect, to me it seems lazy and half arsed though, but it works.. any tips, or should i just not touch them as well?

I do clean the vents, but if the side bits of the vent with the screws are discolored beware! The discoloration means the plastic is aged, weak and will snap off easily - be warned. These side bits of the vents are made with a different type of plastic are do become brittle.


Anyway, back to cleaning them… if you give them a good clean the first time, you normally don't have an issue subsequent cleans.


I always go back over first cleans for a 2nd rinse after the whole house is done. When I do this, I don't touch the frame with my rinse and am especially careful not to touch the top frame. This works for me.

any windows with vents always miss, this battered my head when I first started clean top frames or not,

top frames only get cleaned on bottom windows if really bad mainly on first cleans

I was told to avoid vents when I started, but I decided not too. Reason being once you've got the vents clean it makes your future cleans a lot easier and less awkward. After cleaning them I turn water off and run edge of brush under them, this eliminates the drips mostly.
