6 Tips For Commercial Window Cleaners

6 Tips For Commercial Window Cleaners

1. Don’t Overlook A Sea Sponge

Sea sponges are just as important for window cleaning as squeegees. You can pick up residual water from the frames and the window after squeegeeing. The wet sponge can be used to clean dirty frames and the squeegee blade.

Today, there is a high demand for commercial window cleaning services that use specialized equipment, such as boom lifts, to ensure a quick and efficient process that can save you time and money. Learn more about our boom lift rental services for working at heights.

2. Make Frequent Stops

After you swipe a squeegee against the glass, make a short stop. Waiting just 2 seconds allows the water to drip from the blade. You can also use a dry sea sponge to remove the water. If the drops stay, you may accidently shake them onto the glass during the next pass.

3. Invest In Ladder Leveler

This simple tool allows you to keep the ladder straight when working on an uneven surface. A small investment can keep you safe when you are up high.

4. Get A Small Squeegee

One large squeegee is enough for a great window cleaning session. However, if you carry the second squeegee, you can do your job faster. A small squeegee can be used to pick up residual drops left by a larger one. This way you save on using paper towels or microfiber cloths.

5. Ask To Clear Access to The Window

When taking an order for a window cleaning session, ask the customers to clear the access to the window. If, when you come, there is still some furniture blocking your way, ask for help to move it. Don’t try to move heavy objects on your own. It’s not part of your job.

6. Don’t Use Too Much Detergent

The beauty of modern windows is that they are easy to clean. Most of them can be washed without any cleaning agents. Don’t use too much soap or other solutions. Keep them to a minimum unless the windows haven’t been washed for years. You’ll use up too much water and time trying to get rid of the soap.
