We recommend getting window cleaning services at least yearly. Some customers get in and outs done in the first part of the year (around spring) and outs later in the year (around summer). We also offer a $50 minimum maintenance window cleaning fee, for eight panes of horizontal window glass or less.
Foggy windows are generally the first signs of a broken seal. Most windows these days have two panes of glass separated by a sealed area of air or gas to provide insulating value. When the seal between those panes fails, fogginess is generally seen and doesn't go away with window cleaning. Replacement is generally the recommendation.
By request we do clean skylights and garage windows. Let us know if you'd like those included in your window cleaning services. We will clean storm windows, if they must be removed to clean the glass underneath them then we count them as a window and clean them while they are out. Storm windows require more handling and delicate methods than regular windows and are generally more expensive to clean, so extra charges may be assessed if the storm window unit must be completely removed from the house.
Traditional window cleaning is generally a dishwashing soap such as Dawn dish soap or Mrs. Meyer's. In some instances we add another window cleaning soap or solution to this. As much as we possibly can, we clean with pure water. Our pure water method filters water to near 0 TDS. Using this method gives streak-free, spotless results while knocking dirt off of frames and sills. This also doesn't leave a residue like some cleaners and soaps do.
Like windows, we recommend window screen cleaning at least once a year.
Pressure washing relies on pressure more than chemicals to remove dirt and debris. Low pressure washing uses a chemical soap to lift the dirt and then the surface is flooded to remove chemical and dirt. Both methods have their place depending on surface and cleaning required.
We can pressure wash hard surfaces such as concrete, stone, and in some instances wood decks.
We can lower pressure wash softer surfaces, such as siding, EIFS or stucco, and decks.
We believe with the right knowledge and tools the job is done efficiently and safely. We choose equipment that reflects a balance in Safety, Professionalism and Cost.
- For traditional window cleaning, we use the mop and squeegee method.
- For water Fed Pole window cleaning, we use the pure water cleaning method, generally outside only.
- For window screen cleaning, or a "Screen Scrub" we use a screen washer.
- For pressure washing or low pressure washing, we use a commercial grade pressure washer.
