Windows are one of the most unforgiving surfaces to clean. With streaks appearing, smudges and marks showing as light filters through it can be aggravating to clean. With some professional advice from Unicpro, New England’s premier janitorial service, you can confidentially make the windows of your facility show clearly your attention to detail.

  1. Start with the right product – Most people use a rag or paper towel to clean glass surfaces. This can leave dust behind which leaves the glass looking dirty. Using a squeegee is another mistake people use, even most local commercial cleaning companies will use a squeegee. The disadvantage of using a squeegee is if the rubber or cloth is not frequently changed then the dirt is just being wiped across the glass. The best product to use is a trowel specifically for glass cleaning. We at Unicpro use the Flimop brand which allows an easy to change microfiber cloth which catches all traces of dust and dirt. Having a telescoping handle will help to give you a greater reach as well.
  2. Use the right temperature of water – Lukewarm or cold water is best when cleaning windows. If the water is too hot it will evaporate too quickly and not allow for enough time to properly clean. Some people swear by vinegar but you want to use a mild detergent, the soap will help to lubricate your tools.
  3. Pro trick – Don’t think you are done after the first time. Make two passes at the window. On the first pass wipe horizontally, then rewash the window and wipe vertically. The difference in directions will help to show any areas you may have missed. Use constant pressure, not to light that you pass over the dirt and not too hard that you can’t move your tool. Think of goldilocks and make sure the pressure is “just right”!

Now you have the inside knowledge you need to get a perfectly clear glass surface. With these tricks, you can start cleaning windows like a pro! Whether it is your home, car windshield or an entire office building you will see a noticeable difference.

Whatever choice you make it pays to hire the right partner to protect your investment and keep you from costly issues. Unicpro has the expertise and can provide value by keeping your windows in the best condition so that you can focus on other things.
