Cleaning Your Skylight

skylight cleaning

A skylight can add a lot of aesthetic value to a house, not to mention monetary value and sunlight. We’ve discussed previously the benefits of owning a skylight. If you have one, you may wonder about the best method for cleaning it. If so, we’ve gone over the process briefly here for your convenience.


  • Clear out any furniture resting under the skylight.
  • Lay down towels to keep water off of the floor.
  • You can invest in a squeegee made specifically for skylights.
  • Place a sturdy step ladder underneath the skylight.


  • Take off the screen if it has one.
  • In a bucket, mix a gallon of water, 1/4 cup ammonia, and some dish soap.
  • Use a mop or cloth to rub cleaning mixture onto skylight.
  • Dry off with the squeegee.
  • Wipe with dry towel.
  • Get on the roof, and repeat on the other side of the glass.
