When you hire professional window cleaners, you know that you are getting a quality job on all of your windows and that they take pride in their work and won’t cut corners. It also saves you a great amount of time and expense because they bring all of their specialized tools and cleaning solutions to your location. The professionals also have the safety risks under control, so you don’t need to worry about that issue either.
Professional Window Cleaning Equipment
Professional and experienced window cleaning companies invest quite a bit of money in tools and supplies. Some of the more common items include a ladder that can reach up to the top of a two to three-story house to enable them to clean your highest windows as well as the lower windows. They generally have several other specialized window cleaning tools, such as a square bucket that the other hand equipment can easily fit it. They normally have a long extendable pole that they can adjust the length on to reach different window heights. Several items fit on the long pole, but they can also fit on a shorter handle for cleaning the lower level windows. Attachments can include scrub brushes with soft bristles that won’t scratch glass, microfiber cleaning cloths and plush T-bar window cleaning cloths that fit on ahead and screw to the handles. They may also have tools for windows with many small panes in them that are smaller and usually round in shape instead of the average rectangular shape. Professional window cleaners usually carry a supply bucket of large disposable cloths to wipe your windows dry made in a specialized cloth that doesn’t leave streaks or lint on your windows. An alternative to this is the squeegee. Some professional window cleaners will enlist the help of a water-fed pole where water runs through a long pole and exits out the center of a brush to clean tall windows.
Professional Grade Cleaning Solutions
Professional window cleaners use an assortment of concentrates for cleaning windows that usually can only be purchased by a licensed company. Some cleaners work better on different types of dirt, debris and other items on window panes including bird droppings, salt from seawater nearby and pollen as well as mold and mildew. These products are diluted with water before they use them and in some cases, they will let the solution sit on a window and soak it with any type of tough stain on it and then come back to the window in a few minutes to finish cleaning it.
What is The Process of Window Cleaning?
Professionals follow an exact process to clean your windows so that the results are clear and pristine with no streaks or smudges when they are done. They always start cleaning from the top windows to direct the dirt and debris to a lower window in the process. The first part they clean is the top of the window frame where debris may be hiding and then they move on to the glass on that particular window. Stubborn stains are soaked and in the worst of cases, they may need to carefully use a scraper or an abrasive pad to remove the entire stain with care so as not to scratch your window. Each window is scrubbed thoroughly at least twice to remove all the dirt and debris. Then the window needs to be rinsed thoroughly either with fresh water and a brush or by turning the water jets on their water fed pole on to supply fresh and clean rinse water to rinse the entire surface from top to bottom. The last step in window cleaning is to clean the window sill with a special sill brush and rinse it. If the company dries your windows, they will use the special clothes that are lint-free so as not to leave any streaks or water spots on your newly cleaned windows. If they do not use drying cloths, they will squeegee the windows dry.
Hiring a professional to clean your windows saves you a lot of time and money that you would need to spend on equipment and solutions to do the job yourself. The employees will also have safety training so you don’t need to worry about safety issues on your property.
