You will need to clean your greenhouse’s windows all year. Because plants require sunlight, you must clean both sides of your glass. You can keep pests and diseases from getting into your plants’ greenhouse windows.
What is the best time to clean?
If you grow summer crops such as tomatoes, it is a good idea to clean up your greenhouse before winter. You will be able to save time and energy by not having to move as many items or worry about soap getting on your plants. You should clean orchids in the autumn when it is mild. As winter draws near, the light will increase. The best times to clean your greenhouse windows are autumn and spring.
It’s time to clean
Pick a time when the greenhouse is empty to clean it. Sometimes all you need is to hose down the roof.
Take a sunny day to clean the glass of any moss or algae. Avoid using tools that could scratch the glass. After the dirt has dried, you can begin washing. When washing your plants with anything other than water, you should protect them. If they are not able to be moved, cover them with a cloth until the cleaning is done. Use plastic sheets. Cover any electrical sockets within and around your greenhouse.
Use a mix of liquid, mild or organic dish soap that does not need to be rinsed. To remove dirt or hide pests, you can use rags and brushes with hard bristles. To clean the inside of the greenhouse roof, use a damp mop.
To make it easier to clean the windows, open them and then dry them both. On a breezy day, your windows will quickly air-dry. As you work, oil and clean the hinges. Make sure to clean and repair your windows as well as your floor. Use the appropriate cleaner to clean your floor and pots. It may not be necessary to use the same cleaner for the windows. Please refer to the label.
If you don’t have the time, experience or skills to clean windows yourself, a professional company can help.
What you will need
You will need the following items to clean your greenhouse windows:
- Clean cloths and rags
- Use soapy water to fill the bucket
A hose may be preferable to a bucket. You can clean the top parts of your mop with a sponge attached using a broom handle or cane. You can remove grime from the joints of window panels by using gentle pressure washers. Use a ladder on firm ground. Wear non-slip shoes. As much as possible, have someone help you. Protect your eyes with goggles and protect your hands against any broken glass. Any broken panes should be replaced.
At least once a year, clean your greenhouse. A professional can clean your greenhouse safely and efficiently if you are unsure or simply don’t feel like it. For a free estimate, call 877-A.Genie-2U today.
