Wash Windows like a Professional
Cleaning your own windows can be a major chore, I know this well because I'm a professional and have been doing it for 14 years now. If I didn't learn the right way to clean windows a long time ago I would have never been successful. Not only would I have given up because it would be too hard, but also because customers would never have me back after it took me all day long to clean there windows and they still didn't look very good.
Of course the best thing you could do would be to hire me, and you know where to find me (shameless plug) Pacific Window Washing. But, if you really want to do all the work yourself I will let you in on an insider secret..Every One Can Do it. It's not that hard to get started, and I will show you how.
1. You're going to need some tools. This may come with a slightly larger initial cost than buying a bottle of Windex and some newspaper or towels. Using Windex is really a bad way to go unless you want to get a really good arm workout, which you will get with all the buffing that comes with trying to get all the streaks out. This is nearly impossible. Also, once you buy the equipment you need, you can use it many times and you won't have to keep new bottles of window cleaner and rolles of paper towels.
These tools are pretty much all you need.
1. A bucket for soapy water.
2. Dish washing soap. Yes that's right it's the trades secret formula.
3. A T-bar mop. This is the blue handle thing with a scrubber mop on it.
4. A few towels.
5 A squeegee
