Washing windows doesn’t have to be a chore. CCMS will make sure you have streak free windows and free time to spend with your loved ones.

We also have a Professional team to do Commercial Buildings the right way.

If you have the right tools and these tips, the process is quick and easy. Keep all your window-washing tools in one plastic or metal bucket (and use a second bucket to mix cleaning solutions).

  • Tools and Materials
    A soft-bristled counter brush
    White vinegar (or mild dishwashing liquid)
    Large polyester sponges
    Squeegees, with extension poles
    Lint-free cloths
    Rubber gloves
    Straight-edged razor blades
    A sturdy ladder
    Nonammoniated all-purpose cleaner

Window Washing How-To

1. Choose a time of day when the sun is not shining directly on the windows. The heat from the sun can cause the cleaning fluid to dry, which will result in streaks or water spots.

2. Brush the exteriors of windows and frames lightly with a soft-bristled counter brush, dusting away cobwebs and loose dirt. Don’t forget the hinges, sills, and tracks.

3. Mix a solution of 1 part white vinegar and 1 part hot water.

4. When using the squeegee indoors, place a towel along the windowsill to catch drips.

5. Using a sponge, wet the window with the vinegar-and-water solution, and rub the dirt away. Keep the solution from touching the window frames.

6. Wet the squeegee; a dry blade will skip.

7. Starting at an upper corner of the pane, draw the squeegee down in a straight stroke. Return to the top and repeat, slightly overlapping the first stroke. After each stroke, wipe the rubber edge of the squeegee with a sponge or lint-free cloth. Finish by pulling the squeegee across the bottom of the window, and dry the sill with a sponge or cloth.

8. Wipe frames with a cloth dampened with a nonammoniated all-purpose cleaner and water. Rinse them thoroughly with a clean, damp cloth to remove cleaning solution and dry immediately by wiping with a clean, dry cloth.

Note for washing large windows: For huge picture windows, professionals favor a method called the snake. Starting in an upper corner, pull the squeegee horizontally across the window. At the opposite corner, turn, lower the squeegee to the water line, then pull it across the window. Work your way down and touch up the edges with a cloth.
