Assuming you can’t just ask your 2nd floor neighbor to do it, or hire a window washer, here are some tips on how to clean your 2nd floor windows. You’ll need a few supplies including a ladder, bucket, sponge, and soap. First, wet the sponge in the soapy water and then wring it out.

How to Clean Second Floor Windows from Inside
Cleaning your second floor windows from the inside may seem like a daunting task, but it is actually quite simple! All you need is a ladder and some basic cleaning supplies.
Make sure that the legs of the ladder are on firm, level ground before climbing up. Once you are at the top of the ladder, use a damp cloth to wipe down the outside of the window. Be sure to get rid of any dirt or dust that has accumulated on the glass.
Next, use a clean, dry cloth to buff the window until it is shining. If there are any stubborn spots, you can use a little bit of vinegar or Windex on your cloth to help remove them. Finally, step back down from the ladder and admire your clean windows!
How Do I Clean My Upstairs Windows?
Assuming you cannot or do not want to use a ladder, one way to clean your upstairs windows is to use a hose with an attachment. Many hoses come with an attachment that can be used for this purpose, or they can be purchased separately. The advantage of using a hose is that you can reach high windows without having to climb anything.
To attach the hose, first screw the appropriate attachment onto the end of the hose. Make sure it is screwed on tightly so that water does not leak out. Next, open the window and place the end of the hose inside.
If possible, it helps to have someone hold the hose in place while you turn on the water and begin moving it back and forth across the window. Be careful not to point the nozzle directly at the glass, as this could cause it to break.
To do this, simply lift up on each side of the screen until it pops out of its frame. Once all of the screens are removed, proceed with attaching and using the hose as described above.
How Do You Clean Windows You Can’T Reach?
If you have windows that you can’t reach, there are a few ways to clean them. You can use a ladder or step stool to get closer to the window, or you can use a pole with a cloth attached to it to extend your reach. If the window is very high up, you may need to hire a professional window cleaning service.
How Do You Clean Your Windows If You Live in a Flat?
Assuming you don’t have access to an outdoor space:
Cleaning your windows when you live in a flat can be a bit more challenging than if you lived in a house. Depending on the layout of your flat, you may not have easy access to the outside of your windows.
Even if you do have access, it’s not always safe or convenient to use a ladder. So what are some alternative ways to clean your windows? One option is to use window cleaning poles.
These extendable poles come with a brush or squeegee attachment, making them ideal for cleaning both the inside and outside of your windows without having to leave your home. Another option is to hire a professional window cleaner. This is especially helpful if you live in a high-rise building where accessing the outside of your windows can be difficult or dangerous.
Professional window cleaners will also have the proper equipment and supplies needed to get your windows sparkling clean.
Assuming you want a summary of the blog post “How to Clean 2nd Floor Windows”:
If your home has more than one level, chances are you have at least one set of windows that are difficult to clean. Whether they’re high up and out of reach, or just in an awkward spot, cleaning second-floor windows can be a pain.
But it doesn’t have to be! With a little planning and the right tools, you can get those windows clean in no time. First, gather your supplies.
You’ll need a ladder, bucket, sponge, squeegee, and some cleaner. Make sure your ladder is tall enough to reach the window, and that it’s stable before you start climbing. Once you’re at the top, wet your sponge with some cleaner and start washing the outside of the window.
Be sure to rinse it off afterwards so the soap doesn’t dry on the glass. Then use your squeegee to wipe away any water or streaks. If there are any hard-to-reach spots, use a cloth or brush to get them clean.
And that’s it! With a little effort (and maybe some help from a friend), you can have sparkling clean second-floor windows in no time.
