How to Clean French Panes in 5 Steps [VIDEO]

How-to Clean French Pane Windows

In the above video, William demonstrates how to do a construction clean of French pane glass on a residential home.

The secret is to apply very little water to the glass when cleaning.  Using too much water on this style of window will likely cause water to remain in the frame and release later causing runs that leave unsightly residue on the glass.

When wetting your applicator, first dunk it, then wring it out really good so there is very little water left in it. Using a slightly wet applicator is  key to cleaning this style of window.

5 Steps for Cleaning French Panes

 

Step 1: Wet the panes from bottom to top

Step 2: Carefully blade the panes to remove paint (use a new blade at your own risk)

Step 3: Wet the panes a second time from bottom to top

Step 4: Squeegee the panes dry from top to bottom

Step 5: Detail the edges of the panes with a clean, dry cloth
