We have experience window cleaning in all types of homes, including large estates, townhouses, older farmhouses, duplexes and city properties, all of which we service on a regular basis. We clean windows of all shapes, sizes and styles. No window cleaning job is too large or difficult for us to handle.

All of our crewmembers are friendly, well groomed, and uniformed from head to toe. Plus, they are completely aware of your window cleaning job requirements. While many of our competitors send a different crew to your home each time you schedule a window cleaning, I come to every job site personally to make sure you get the service you expect. That’s because we’re not here just to clean your windows. We want to build a lasting relationship with you that you can count on year in and year out.

residential-window-cleaning-3Our Technique

Some of customers tell us our window cleaning technique is mesmerizing. We just think it’s the best window cleaning process in the industry. At Squeegee Klean, we use ladders – never poles – to reach your windows, so that we have complete control over the window cleaning process. And we never clean your windows using spray bottles or paper towels – we don’t expect you to pay for something you could do yourself. Instead, we use window cleaning mops known in the industry as strip washers, along with traditional squeegees. We carry our liquid cleaning solution in buckets attached to our belts, and use a precise, non-traditional cleaning technique that leaves all of your windows spotless and streak free. When we’re done cleaning the glass, we wipe down the window frames to remove any excess solution, and then finish each window by wiping clean the window well.

Why Get Your Window Professionally Cleaned?

The obvious reasons:

  • To enjoy a better view.
  • To benefit from better heat efficiency.
  • To have a brighter home.
  • To free your time for activities that you enjoy.

Additional important reasons:

Glass allows natural light into your home, which helps cut down on energy costs. It also helps with the heating of your home during the winter months by allowing in and trapping heat from the sun. Unfortunately, glass delivers none of these benefits fully when it is dirty. Finally, if glass becomes damaged due to long exposure to contaminants, it must be replaced at considerable cost.

How does window glass get damaged?

Residential Window Cleaning Company 5

Glass can, over time, become permeated with a variety of contaminants that compromise its transparency and performance.
These contaminants include:

  • Hard minerals (from sprinkler systems and building run-off)
  • Oxidization (from windows encased in metal frames and screens)
  • Acid rain
  • Overspray (from paint, chalking, mortar and more)

Understanding glass

Residential Window Cleaning 6

Glass is a porous liquid that continues to harden over time after it has cooled. Because it is porous, airborne pollutants can compromise its transparency. Hard water also can damage glass that is not cleaned on a regular basis. This can happen when rain water runs over man-made surfaces such as stained wood, painted siding or concrete sealant, collecting minerals and acids. These minerals and acids then accumulate in the pores of the glass. Glass that is not maintained over long periods of time can suffer permanent surface damage, and, ultimately, structural damage.

Aluminum screens damaging your windows?

aluminum screens window cleaning

Aluminum screens are common in homes that were built between 8-40 years ago. What most homeowners don’t realize is that aluminum oxidizes over time. The oxidation from your screens and window frames will stain your glass. If this condition is corrected in the early stages of oxidation a traditional cleaning will in most cases take care of the problem. However if the problem is left unnoticed a special acid chemical may be needed to correct the problem. This process can be very timely and expensive but will restore the condition of your glass back to new.

Signs of Oxidation: A milky appearance on the exterior of you windows, present even after cleaning them. Don’t be confused, sometimes what looks like dirt on the exterior of your windows can be oxidation. Another sign of oxidation is a grayish look to your window sills. If your window sills are grey that means oxidation has already started and you need to call us immediately…

Removing the Oxidation: We begin the process, by applying a special acid chemical specially formulated to remove the oxidation from your glass. We then scrub your windows with a semi abrasive pad to ensure all the oxidation is removed. We complete the process by cleaning your windows our traditional way; leaving your glass restored to factory condition and clean.

If you think this condition might be affecting your glass, call us today for a no cost, hassle free glass inspection.

Screen cleaning is available upon request. Why just clean your windows when the screens are also dirty. Experience the best view possible and have your windows and screens cleaned.
