Most of the time, when people say they “clean” windows, what they actually do is “fade out” the stains. The result will be broadly OK, but far from satisfactory for a trained eye. An expert in window cleaning from Fredericksburg, VA was kind enough to share his know-how with us, and now we can tell you how to deal with some of the most stubborn stains on your windows. He works for Home & Business Services, a family-owned company operating in the Greater Fredericksburg Area, offering professional cleaning services (residential, commercial, carpets, air ducts, windows), as well as handyman services, home maintenance, and turnkey services.
“There is no such thing as a perfect human being, but perfection can be achieved in window cleaning Fredericksburg VA. People who are not used to this activity might think it’s easy, but they will end up leaving traces, smudges, or scratches on the surface of the glass. However, a well-trained expert, such as myself and my colleagues from HBSOnTime.com, can deal with your windows in no time at all. The secret, apart from using the right tools, which I will present below, is, believe it or not, gentle hands. The worst thing you could do is apply pressure on the glass while cleaning it”, the professional cleaner says.
The expert in window cleaning from Fredericksburg, VA says that the tools used for the process are just as important as the outcome itself. “You don’t need anything more than a microfiber cloth and a squeegee. The cloth will clean the window thoroughly and won’t leave any lint behind, which means it can be used for cleaning the lint left by other materials. The squeegee is used for washing and wiping the windows as should be used always, together or separate from the microfiber cloth. Alternatively, you could also use black and white newspapers or coffee filters, which are similar to the microfiber cloth”, the professional advises.
When it comes to the techniques used, the window cleaning in Fredericksburg, VA professional says that first you should dip a sponge or cloth into a solution of window cleaning agent and warm water. “After you wipe the entire window, use the squeegee to remove the solution from the window, with vertical strokes, from the top to the bottom, without interspersing them. After that, wipe the whole glass surface with a towel. After every wipe, make sure that the squeegee is clean, so that it doesn’t leave any suplimentary traces”, he says.
Last but not least, the expert in window cleaning from Fredericksburg, VA says that, for better results, you should clean the exterior windows on an overcast day rather than a very sunny or breezy one. “If it’s too sunny, the solution will dry too fast and won’t clean your windows thoroughly. On the other hand, if it rains or it snows, you won’t have how to tell if your windows are clean, and it will also be difficult to finish the operation due to the difficult weather”, he ends.
