Our company utilizes two methods of window cleaning.
The first is what we refer to as our traditional cleaning process which entails scrubbing the glass by hand to release any dirt, grime and debris, we then squeegee the solution off the glass and finally wipe down all the edges to prevent drips and streaks. This method is ideal for windows that have gone some time in between cleanings and windows with storms. Our traditional cleaning process is also used for all interior cleanings.
The second method of window cleaning that we utilize is with the use of a water-fed pole system. Our water-fed pole system is used solely for exterior cleanings. This process uses pure water which is deionized and has all minerals removed through filtration. This leaves behind spot-free results. This method is generally ideal for newer style windows without storms, hard-to-reach windows, conservatory roofs, greenhouses and sunrooms, solar panels, and windows that are cleaned on a recurring schedule.
The water-fed pole system allows us to access windows that were previously inaccessible or hard to reach by ladder, such as skylights. Cleaning windows via the water fed-pole system also allows us to clean not just the windows, but the frames as well, resulting in a better overall finish.
Here is what to expect on the day of your cleaning:
Our team will arrive on time, in our uniforms, and we'll wear shoe coverings inside your home. You won't have to worry about there being any mess when we are finished because our window cleaning equipment is designed to prevent drips and spills. To ensure that there will not be any scuff marks or damage on your walls, we will put covers on the tops of all of our ladders.
All we ask of you before we arrive is to remove any items from the window sills and make sure there is a clear path to each window. We can take care of everything else and will move it back when we are finished!
We begin by using a soft scrubber to scrub your windows and combine this with our tried and tested window cleaning solution. This solution is safe to use on all window film and is eco-friendly.
Next comes the squeegee! We remove all of the dirt that might be suspended in the cleaning solution.
Then, we detail the edges of the glass using a lint-free towel. This ensures a spotless shine. We then wipe any loose dirt or solution from the window sill using a damp cloth.
To finish, we wipe your screens and frames with a damp cloth to give your windows the full, sparkling treatment!
*When it is necessary, we can also use a specially-designed glass scraper to remove any paint or tape, or other debris for you.
Our expert team members are trained to clean all types of windows and glass, including older-style windows with storms. With three generations of expertise, you can rest assured that your storm windows will be handled with care. Storm window cleaning entails carefully taking each storm window apart in order to clean all surfaces; we then carefully reassemble, leaving you with a picture-perfect view!
