Understanding How to Remove Cobwebs From the Exterior of Your House

While it can be tempting to simply go at your cobwebs with a brush, this can leave your exterior with residue, dirt and grime and can have you repeating the process frequently. To remove cobwebs like an expert, consider following these steps:

1.   Rinse

If you’re wondering how to get rid of spider webs outside windows, you’ll want to start with a hose. Thoroughly soak your windows, frames and screens with a high-pressure garden hose to wash away any webs and critters. Focus on the corners and hard-to-clean areas and try to rinse away as much webbing as possible. 

2.   Apply Window Cleaner

After giving your windows a rinse with water, spray any glass with your window cleaner of choice. This will ensure your windows don’t dry with streaks, giving you the ultimate finish.

3.   Wipe and Dry

Using an old rag or soft cloth, wipe away any remaining webs, dust and debris from your window frames and corners. Then, using a soft microfibre cloth, dry your glass with long strokes to avoid steaks and to give you a professional finish.

This technique can be applied to any windows and walls, and is the best way to clean cobwebs in your garage.
