Well the spring time is upon us, well okay, I must confess living in San Diego the weather seems like it is always spring.  What can I say?

Being a San Diego window cleaning company sure has its perks.  But don’t think that just because the weather is perfect that it is impossible to have dirty windows.

As a matter of fact, most of the time, us San Diegans think our windows don’t ever get dirty.  Not so.

Now before we begin, let’s get one thing straight.  The window cleaning tips I give you are not just for Southern Californians.  No, these tips can be used and applied no matter where you find yourself here on earth.

Ready for the tips?  Then let’s go.

So let’s address the overarching problem when cleaning windows.  And that problem is those ugly streaks.  Let’s say you woke up and felt great.  So great you wanted to take on the world.  So what is it you decide to take on?  Your windows.

But wait just one minute.  Before you even think about taking on such a big job as cleaning your windows, and I’m not saying you can’t, let’s get the procedure right.  And when you do, you will see how much easier it makes this job.

Ready to get started?  Here it is, nice and neat.

Now right off the bat, the first thing you will want and need is the right tools for the job.  This isn’t going to be a quick spray and wipedown of your family room glass table.  No, this will be glass that has months of dirt piled on, from the weather all the way to insects and birds making it dirty.

So what will be the tools that will be needed for the job.  Well it certainly won’t be windex and some paper towels.  It won’t be much more complicated than that.  The tools you will need is a squeegee and a spray bottle and then you can use the paper towels.

Put all these tools together, use them correctly and you day of cleaning windows will be a breeze.

So what now?  You are going to need the right ingredient for that spray bottle.  And what is this top secret ingredient?  Well it is 2 parts.  It is 2 gallons of water, and here comes the secret sauce, a teaspoon of dish washing liquid.  That’s it?  That’s all you’ll need.  You get that straight, and beautiful streak free windows are yours.

One final thing I forgot to mention, and don’t hate me for this.  You are going to have to add a lot of elbow grease.

Remember when you were ready to take on the world and windows seemed like no big deal?  Well after the third window or so, you might find the elbow grease running on empty.

Well when you do, don’t forget where you got the advice.  Your wonderful local San Diego window washing company, who won’t mind adding some elbow grease.

Till next time, happy cleaning.
