What makes my windows dirty?
Airborne particles from heating & cooling systems, fingerprints, pet smudges, tobacco smoke and cooking residue collect on window surfaces to form a hazy layer on the inside glass over time. Environmental contaminants like dust, bird droppings, acid rainfall and plant pollen obscure build up on the outside glass the same way that indoor contaminants do.

Which tools will you use to clean my windows?
We use a soft strip washer for scrubbing and wetting windows, a concentrated cleaning solution, a variety of squeegees, and use lint-free towels to wipe the tools between strokes and to dry excess water around panes.

Are your cleaning materials harmful or toxic?
All of the products we use in our window cleaning services are home-safe and biodegradable. We do not use any ammonia or alcohol-based solutions that could affect flooring or home fabrics or aggravate respiratory conditions due to fumes.

Will I have to move my furniture around to have my windows cleaned?
To safeguard against water damage and possible splashes or accidents, we do ask that you move any furniture away from window sills and ledges prior to performing our service. Of course, it's easier to clean windows that do not have draperies on them, but our team can work around them, if need be.

Is your window cleaning service messy?
No! In fact, we use very little water and make every effort to avoid any spills. Our window cleaning teams will gladly wear shoe covers to protect your flooring while working in your home, at your discretion.

How often do my windows need to be cleaned?
We advise our clients to have their windows cleaned every 3 months or with the change of a season. Adhering to this schedule, your windows should remain clean between scheduled cleanings.

Will my scheduled cleaning be canceled in the event of rain?
We closely monitor the current weather conditions so that we can be prepared in the event of an adverse weather situation. If the weather reports call for light precipitation, we can proceed with the cleaning because light rain has no effect on the process. However, in the event of heavy rain or showers, our team will return within a couple of days to finish the service for you.

Can rain make my windows dirty?
No, not by itself. However, rain can carry dust, pollen, exhaust and other contaminants onto your windows. Rain drops move the dirt around your windows and after the rain dries, the dirt and debris is left behind.

Can windows be cleaned in the winter?
Yes! Window cleaning is actually more important during the winter than any other season. Road salt used to de-ice highways and streets turns into an air-borne powder when cars drive over it. This dust settles on your windows just as any other type of dust does.

Do I have to be at home when you come to clean my windows?
