PINE COUNTRY WINDOW CLEANING'S FAQs
What temperature is best for cleaning windows is a great question. There are two types of temperatures you want to avoid when washing windows. Freezing, and too hot, but how cold, and how hot?
When temperatures dip below 30º, you can add windshield anti-freeze (deicer) into your bucket of water, but if you have too much water, it will start freezing around 20º. Between 20º and 0º and you will need to use straight deicer. Anything below 0º it's simply too clod to try and wash windows. Wait for another day.
When temperatures are hotter than 80º and if try to clean windows in the sun, it may be too hot. Some areas of the country like Arizona and California get hotter than 110º but they still clean windows in that heat. How do they do it you may ask. Well, they work away from the sun, and they start around 3:00 or 4:00am so they are done before it gets too hot.
The main goal is to wash windows that are not in the sun. This will make window cleaning much easier for you when it's hot.
Washing windows in the sun is not an easy task whatsoever. Professionals avoid the sun at all costs when working.
The only downside to not washing windows in the sun is streaks are difficult to see if the sun is not shining through the glass. The sun will light up any streaks or smears.
Most window cleaning companies will start working in the shady side of the building and work away from the sun. When the sun is on the glass, it's super hot, and it will be difficult to squeegee before it dries up.
The main goal is to wash windows that are not in the sun. This will make window cleaning much easier for you when it's hot.

Cleaning windows may seem like an easy job, but it's not. Common mistakes that people, as well as professionals, make end up doing more harm than good to windows. One such common water is using tap water for cleaning purposes.
Normal or tap water contains several minerals that leave behind marks, spots, and a streaky residue when used to clean windows. Thus, window washers who understand the nitty-gritty of the job and come with experience, do not need to use distilled water for cleaning purposes. Distilled water, has not been filtered free of contaminates. It has simply the steam from boiled water. Window cleaners when squeegeeing a window can use really any tap water that is available. The squeegee is what makes the glass clean, not the water.
We also use the Pure Water and Water Fed Window Cleaning technology that runs pure water through a filtering process that helps to get rid of any contaminants and minerals present in water. This water is then sent to the top of a pole, which is equipped with a soft brush designed specifically for cleaning windows.
Vinegar and ammonia are effective and inexpensive home methods for cleaning windows. However, vinegar is the better option because it's non-toxic and less dangerous to use.
Any kind of vinegar can be used because it vinegar is high in acidity, which makes it effective in breaking down germs, grease, and mold. However, most people don't like it for its smell. Once it dries, though, the strong smell slowly disappears. You can also mix it with water if you find the smell intolerable.
Ammonia is a base product that has effective corrosive properties that break grime and grease quickly. Though they work faster and more efficiently than vinegar, they can be toxic to the throat and lungs when inhaled. They can also burn your skin. You'd have to use gloves and wear a mask to clean your windows with ammonia. You also have to open your doors windows to make sure there's proper ventilation.
Though ammonia may be more effective in breaking down grease and germs, the health risks and preparation are not worth it. Vinegar is the better option when you want to clean your windows at home.

Do you have an easy access to a professional window cleaner? If not, rendering the answer moot for most people, I would say clean the inside first.
A properly trained and skilled window cleaner will use a variety of tools and techniques to deal with three types of stains that are commonly found on windows:
1) paint (such as from brickwork) often found below windowsills. 2) water damages caused by sprinklers or wet-basements; and 3) lead based paints (common before 1978).
Tools they use include squeegees or brushes - depending on how difficult the membrane is to clean. They also may use metal poles with extensions and foam machine to wash baseboards around lower windows pop out.

Yes, window cleaners working from a ladder are at risk of falling and need climbing coverage. Most homeowners' insurance policies have coverage for this but it's worth checking with your agent. Window cleaner experts who do the work on ground level without using ladders don't need insurance as they are not in any physical danger.
Many people think that window cleaners just go up to windows and clean them - but there is actually a lot more involved than that! When cleaning from the ground, the window washer may stand next to or on top of another building which can put him at risk if he falls; when climbing a ladder, they are in more physical danger since there is potential for more serious injury or even death should they fall multiple stories.
Tropical Home & Commercial Services in Orlando provided us this excellent wisdom.
Window cleaning is a dangerous occupation; it's estimated that 4,000 residential and commercial window cleaners suffer serious workplace injuries each year. Janitorial companies and local window cleaner experts are the best bet for safer, sanitized windows. Annual maintenance costs are typically cheaper than paying an "on-call" service to clean after a break in or other emergency.
Important: Window washers use scaffolding and ropes with lines of tension to clean large windows from buildings like hospitals or hotels. They have little protection if these lines fail- in an extreme situation where they fall more than two stories (in this case while roped off) there is very little room for error before serious spinal injury could occur.

Window washing can be a messy and time-consuming job, which is why many people hire professionals to do it. Yet if you want to give it a try yourself, you'll first need the right tool – in most cases one of two things;
Most modern window cleaners will use either a product they spray onto the windows that makes dirt easy to wipe off and doesn't leave smudges or streaks behind, or they'll use a squeegee with lots of rubber on the bottom that glides across glass without leaving scratches. Of course there are other tricks of the trade like using products designed for cleaning windows but when it comes down to it, your best bet for keeping your home looking its best is with some quick effort and an inexpensive option.

Most people do it themselves using an epoxy product. You can also use polyurethane concrete paint. The best way is to apply the coating professionally.
The floor should be cleaned beforehand, preferably with a 30-percent bleach solution mixed with warm water or whatever cleaner you have access to that will remove embedded dirt and grease, then dried thoroughly before applying the coating. To extend the life of your floor, stop in-shoe traffic when possible by installing carpeting or other floor coverings in areas where it is not desired. Cushion areas prone to wear by sprinkling them with gravel or crushed stone dust when finished rolling on the coating material so that foot traffic does not significantly wear down the surface prematurely.

Hiring a professional eliminates all your risk as a homeowner (and the roof is their job!). Hiring a company that has OSHA safety training will pay dividends as a homeowner!
If you plan to hire someone, you should ask them if they use chemicals; and if not, request they do so. Chemicals are the best and least harmful way to clean your roof!
Some people find that when it rains heavily after they have done this, the last bits of cleaner comes off in the rainwater which washes away their hard work. One solution to this problem is to add some sugar or salt spread over your home's surfaces under the layer of cleaner. This helps remove any last traces of detergent after rainfall and leaves no aftermath for weeks or months later.

Mos window washing companies are usually hired by homeowners here in Flagstaff to clean their windows. They may either do the cleaning themselves or sub-contract it out to a company who specializes in office window washing.
Very experienced window cleaners can make upwards of $200 for one day's work, but that varies depending on the type of building they are working on, where it is located geographically, etc. The easiest way to find an approximate cost for this service is to search online for residential window cleaning costs in your area and compare them with prices at local commercial property management companies or websites offering window washing services.
Chuck from HMS Window Cleaning gave us this answer!
It can vary from state-to-state, but usually between $14 and $24 per hour.
Window cleaners often have to go from job to job without much time for breaks or other work since they are low on the totem pole in terms of workers that are hired. The pay varies greatly depending on your level of experience, skill set, etc., which is similarly low compared with other jobs.
If you're not trained as a window cleaner coming out of high school or college - you should be prepared for "lots" of hard physical labor coupled with many sleepless nights scrubbing window panes at breakneck speeds under the hot sun!
The good news is that some people have turned this trade into a very nice income, or several million dollar per year businesses!

Should you hire your local window washing company or a home cleaning company to clean your window blinds & shutters?
There are many window cleaner companies that are happy to clean your window blinds and shutters for you. Since they are already washing the glass and the shutters or blinds are right there, it makes sense.
I would recommend to not assume they will do the service. It is always best to ask in advance in case the window washing technician shows up to your home and does not have enough time in his or her schedule, then you will be out of luck.
Make sure when you book the appointment to ask for any additional services and make sure there is sufficient time in the schedule to fulfill your request.
A special thank you to our friends at Blue Skies Window Cleaning in Minneapolis MN.
*Pine Country Window Cleaning DOES NOT clean window blinds or shutters. Please contact a house cleaner for that service.
Yes, you can use pure water to clean windows. You will need to use a squeegee to push water around the window and up the glass so that you can get it to drip down. Your efforts will be spot free when they dry.
Pure water is very versatile in household cleaning - if your goal is just simple cleanliness or easy sanitation without too much elbow grease or chemicals, then plain old water should do the trick! This includes scrubbing up dishes, toilets, grout lines in bathrooms, even walls with just plain old soap and hot/cold H2O!

Yes and no.
Most window cleaners will clean security screens that are on the outside of your regular windows, but the security doors on your front door of your house, typically are fixed around some type of metal or iron. These are extremely difficult to clean, and it may be cheaper for your to wash it down with a hose yourself than to pay someone to clean them for you.
Security screens on outsides of windows sometimes have electric wires that connect them to a centralized alarm in the house. If they get unplugged, it may cause a disruption to the security service in the home. These wires can also grow very old and brittle over the years by sitting in the hot Arizona sun. So when they are handled, they must be handled with great care!
