Window Cleaning Adelaide Supplies

;Equipment Needed:
· Glass Cleaning
· Plastic ; Buckets
· Window Cleaning Adelaide Window Cleaning Kits
· Window Cleaning Adelaide Window Screen Cleaning
· Window Cleaning Adelaide Window Washing Squeegees
Window Cleaning Adelaide Water Fed Poles
Step 1.) Preparing the Equipment – Gather all the necessary glass cleaning supplies and take them to the general area that needs cleaning. For interior windows, or exterior ones that are found on the ground floor, a janitorial cart with the necessary supplies, or a window cleaning kit, like our basic window cleaning kit may be all that you need. For windows higher up on a multi-story building, one of our deionized window washing carts may be the optimum alternative, compared to using ladders or powered lifts. This eliminates the risk of an accident happening on the job.

Cleaning Reachable Windows

Step 2.) Cleaning Reachable Windows/Mirrors – Using a window washing sleeve or a spray bottle, coat your window with a thin coat of solution. The window washing sleeve will work better on heavily soiled windows, because it will remove dirt, smudges and other marks quickly and efficiently.
If there are any screens on the windows that also need cleaning, using an automatic screen cleaner is going to be the most efficient way to accomplish the task. Our automatic window screen cleaning machine is great for any screens that can be easily removed from the window casings. It can clean extremely large screens, up to a patio door size, effortlessly.

 

Squeegeeing Reachable Windows

Step 3.) Window Cleaning Adelaide Squeegeeing Reachable Windows/Mirrors – Take your squeegee and gently press the left most portion of the squeegee up tight against the left frame of the window. You’ll want to angle your squeegee so only about 1 inch or so of the squeegee is touching the window. With some force, drag the squeegee down creating a 1 inch barrier from the window frame and the area to be squeegeed.

Wipe off you squeegee blade with a towel. Starting in the upper left corner, pull your squeegee straight across at about a 45° angle. As you hit the right frame of the window, slowly start to turn the angle at which you squeegee is on the glass to start an “S” like motion to come back with. You will continue to use this motion until you reach the bottom of the window and can run your squeegee across the bottom of the frame, cleaning the last of the window.
While you are doing these steps, it is a good idea to use consistent pressure, and to always have 95% of you squeegee on a wet surface. This will make the squeegee blades last longer. Also, you never want to have the squeegee blade leave the window during cleaning, as this can create a line, and you’ll have to start all over if you want perfectly spotless windows.

 

Using a Deionized Water Cart to Clean Windows

Step 4.) Using a Deionized Water Cart to Clean Windows – Assemble cart and poles. Attach water supply. Use the included TDS water meter to measure the amount of particles in the water. If the water is not pure, these impurities will stick to your window after cleaning. Maintain a 20° angle while resting the brush head again your window. This will take most of the pressure off of you and transfer it to the window.
Start cleaning by spraying the deionized water into the corners of the window frame, and rinsing the window from the top down. Using a “Z” motion, continue to rinse the window until you reach the bottom of the frame. Scrub window thoroughly, and then rinse once more. Due to the pure water, the window can then dry and will be perfectly clean because the deionized water is pure and holds no impurities to stick to the window.

 

Window Cleaning Clean Up

Step 5.) Clean Up – If you’re cleaning by hand, take your rag and wipe down the window frame to pick up any water/solution that may have been missed or sprayed onto the sill by accident. Rinse out your rags. Wipe down your squeegee and hang it, as well as your rags, up to dry. Wash out all buckets and equipment.
Window Cleaning

Of all the household chores, cleaning windows has to be right up there with the ironing. Commercial cleaning, soap and water, newspaper and other methods all work reasonably well, but there has to be a better way! Werecommend the following home-made recipe for squeaky clean windows every time. Mix about 200 mls of methylated spirits with 1.5 litres of warm water. Take a synthetic chamois, dip it in, squeeze it out thoroughly and then wipe the windows all over. Next find a rag (old singlets and underpants are very good for this) and polish the windows. Don’t forget to repeat the procedure on the other side of the window as we

 

Window Cleaning Techniques

There are many different window cleaning techniques that can be learned but since this site has been designed for the beginner, I will only be discussing easy-to-learn, general techniques. Below you will find information and links for easy to follow step by step techniques.
At this point you should have already studied up on all the correct window cleaning tools. If you haven’t, you may want to do that right now.

Learning techniques

Learning techniques on how to clean windows is no different than learning anything else for the first time The more you practice the better you will become at the task.
Give yourself some time to play around with what you learn from this site. Once you get going you will discover that it’s not as difficult as it seems.
If you like to be competitive, invite a friend to learn all the window cleaning secrets with you. Once you get good you can make a game of it. Make fun bets and race each other to the finish. Before you know it, all the windows in your house will be cleaned, and you’ll realize you had fun doing it.

Learning the art of window cleaning

When you’re first learning the art of window cleaning, you will encounter different challenges each time you clean a new window. Relax, if it doesn’t turn out how you like, just re-wet the window and try again until you get it. If you run into recurring challenges you cannot overcome, you can always refer back to this site. You can even go to the window cleaning troubleshooting guide where you can look for solutions or ask your own questions regarding your challenges.
Once you have mastered the window cleaning techniques listed below you will soon realize the value in your new skill.
Your friends, family and neighbors will all be amazed and wonder how you get your windows to look so crystal clear.
You will also be saving a bundle of money by cleaning your own windows V.S. hiring a company.
If you so desire, it can be turned into a very profitable window cleaning business opportunity. Everyone has windows and everyone I know loves to have clean windows. There will always be people out there that do not want to clean their own windows and will pay good money to have you do the work for them.
Tip: Start by practicing on easy to reach ground level windows. Work on the outside first, this way you can make all the mess you want and not worry about it.

Scrubbing a Window

Here you will learn techniques for scrubbing a window. The techniques discussed here will work with whatever type of window scrubbing tools you have chosen to use.
First, mix up your homemade window cleaner and fill your window cleaning bucket. Then place your scrubbing tool inside the bucket.
If the window is super dirty you will want to give it a pre-wash. Using your scrubber or a natural sponge, soak the entire window. Then use your squeegee to remove the dirty water.
After all the loose dirt and grime is removed you want to look for pre-existing conditions that may have been hidden by the dirt. Look for things like scratches, cracks, chips, hard water spots, paint, stucco, silicone, cement, etc. This will give you a good idea of how hard to scrub, or whether or not you will need to use a window scraper.
Tip: Start cleaning the dirtiest side of the window first.

Window scraper.

Usually it is the outside.Now wet the window again and begin to scrub. If you discovered debris that needs to be removed with a scraper then you will want to see the page on window scraping. Otherwise you can continue as follows.
When scrubbing a window, start with the edges. Scrub back and forth, up and down along each edge. Then, start scrubbing from the top and work your way down to the bottom using small circular motions. Use caution when pressing on any glass. Windows can take quite a bit of pressure, but if the glass is thin or the integrity has been weakened due to deep scratches or cracks, it could break.
Again, if you find that there is debris that will not come off with normal scrubbing, you may have to use chemicals/solvents or a window scraper. If you are cleaning non tempered glass, a window scraper is usually safe to use and will remove 98% of all stubborn debris.
Now that you’ve learned about the scrubbing techniques, you are ready to learn all about using a squeegee.

Window Scraping

There are very important rules that should be followed when it comes to window scraping. I highly suggest all the rules below to be carefully studied before you attempt this procedure. You can also see this done on the window cleaning videos page.
If these rules are ignored, you will end up with damaged windows.

Window Cleaning Adelaide Rule #1

If you need to scrape a window to remove hard, caked on debris, always use a window scraper.
These scrapers are specifically designed to be used on glass. Never use any other tools such as house hold razor blades, flat screwdrivers, box cutters, putty knives, scratchy pads, etc.

Window Cleaning Adelaide Rule #2

Always wet the window with soapy water before it is scraped.

Window Cleaning Adelaide Rule #3

Always inspect your scraper each time before you use it. Make sure the blade is not covered in any rust. Also check the corners of the blade to make sure they are not bent or chipped off. Whenever you’re in doubt, play it safe and put on a new blade.

Window Cleaning Adelaide Rule #4

Before you scrape the whole window, check to see that it is not leaving scratches. Do this by scraping a small section in the corner of the window. Then inspect closely at different angles.

Window Cleaning Adelaide Rule #5

Only use forward scraping motions like a plow. Scrape forward, lift the blade off the glass, pull back, and scrape forward again. Do not slide the scraper backwards. Doing so can trap debris under the blade. If this happens, it will scratch the glass.

Window Cleaning Adelaide Rule #6

Be aware of Tempered Glass. This type of glass may contain raised imperfections that will cause scratches if not cleaned properly!
Tempered glass is most commonly used in (but can be found anywhere) glass doors, side lights, windows located in stairways, over sized picture windows, next to bath tubs and showers, including shower doors and skylights. Most tempered windows or doors will have an etched labeled in one of the corners that says tempered or safety glass. Always test and check every window for this label before scraping.

Procedures for Scraping Glass

First, wet the window. Second, find a corner to test the scraper out on. Scrape in a forward motion three or four times in the same spot. If it feels and sounds smooth on the third or forth scrape and there is no scratching, you’re safe to continue with the rest of the window.
If it sounds and feels like the scraper is sliding across sand paper, and continues to sound this way even after the third or fourth scrape, do not scrape the rest of the window. The sandpaper-like sound indicates that this may be flawed or tempered glass that contains raised imperfections.
If tempered or regular glass that contains raised imperfections is scraped, it will cause scratches in the glass.
Once you have determined that it’s safe to scrape the glass, finish the whole window. Start with the edges. Scrape from the inside of the window towards the outside edge. Work all the way around the window with a one to two inch pattern. After the edges are scraped, start from the top and work your way towards the bottom. Scrape in a straight pattern of about four to five inches while overlapping each time. Remember to keep rule #5 in mind at all times while you work. If the window starts to dry out before your finished, wet it again and then continue where you left off.

Using a Squeegee

Using a squeegee and learning the techniques are the most challenging part of window cleaning. It will take some practice and a little trial and error on your part. I will be giving you simple step by step guild lines to explain the techniques involve. I can’t stress this enough, the only way you will ever get any good using a squeegee is lots of practice.

The Feel

The feel accounts for about 90% of successful squeegee usage. What do I mean by the feel? When you are using a window squeegee there’s a certain amount of pressure and speed you have to use to avoid getting window streaks. If you press to hard or not hard enough, go to slow or to fast all in the wrong combination, you may get streaking. The pressure you use will change depending on your speed and the position you are in when facing the window. You will have to adjust each time you practice until you get it right.
Tip: Pick an easy window to practice on. Scrub it and squeegee it twenty times in a row. Pay attention to what is happening each time. You will soon learn what works and what doesn’t.

Squeegee Channel Check

After the window has been scrubbed and all the debris removed you are ready to start. The first thing to do before using a squeegee is to check the squeegee channel, make sure it is perfectly straight. Also make sure the squeegee rubber does not have excessive ware. If in doubt, put on a new rubber. You will also need one or two dry window cleaning towels.
Tip: Drape one towel over each shoulder. This way they are convenient to grab when you need them. Use one for wiping off the squeegee and use the other for wiping your edges.

Step by Step

You should start out learning to squeegee the window from side to side. It is much easier than starting from the top and pulling down. The majority of the windows you clean on a normal basis should be cleaned this way. Too often I see beginners pulling from the top and getting nothing but a window full of streaks.
The entire window should be wet with soapy water. Determine which side of the window you will be starting on. This may depend on whether you are right or left handed. Take one of the window cleaning towels and wrap you index finger. If you are right handed, wipe the entire right hand edge of the window. Make sure it is completely dry. You may have to move the towel around to a dry spot in the process. Now do the same with the top edge of the window. This will help keep water from dripping down on your window after you squeegee it.

Wiping the Edges/ Detailing

Now that the side and top edges are dry, take your squeegee in hand. Place the rubber blade at the top of the dry right hand edge. As you start to pull it across the window, pull the top of the channel out first so that you can maintain an angle of about 15 to 20 degrees. Pull the squeegee all the way over to the opposite side of the window. See diagram.
Using your towel, wipe the squeegee blade completely free from water. Also check to see if the side and top edge is still dry. If not give them a quick wipe so that they stay dry. Repeat the same step to finish the lower half of the window.
Wiping the Edges/ Detailing
Now that the window has been squeegeed off, you will need to wipe the edges. Also known as detailing. It is very important to wipe all the remaining water from the edges in order to get that crisp, flawless finished look.
Tip: You must constantly wipe the edges with a dry part of the towel. If the towel is to wet when you wipe, you will see wipe marks after it dries.

Missed Spots

If you’ve missed more than a dime size amount of water or created any streaks or lines, it is better to just start over than to try and wipe them with the towel. Usually if you wipe the middle of a window with anything it will show up when the sun shines through. Also, when using a squeegee, never start directly in the middle of the window. You have to start with an edge and finish with an edge.
Water Beads
Imagine that the water beads spread over a window are similar to marbles spread across a flat board. If you move the marbles across the board using a squeegee or a flat stick, you will see how they react. It is the same reaction the water beads have on the glass when a squeegee is moved through them. You can also picture a snow plow. The way the snow moves when the plow pushes it away is similar to the water beads and squeegee.

Trouble Shooting

Using a squeegee can be challenging at first, if you have problems with things like, water lines being left behind, drips or runs from the top, streaks, chattering across the window, etc. no need to worry. These things even happen to the experienced. The important thing is to know what the causes and solutions are. I have put together a trouble shooting guide to help with some of the situations you might be dealing with.Window Cleaning Troubleshooting
Cleaning Window Screens
Cleaning window screens can be a frustrating job at times. Here is an easy three step process that will help.
Tools You Will Need
3 liter bucket
Medium soft brush
Dish Soap
Lint Free Hand Towels
Window Screen Layout
Most houses have different sized windows and screens throughout the house. If this is the case, you don’t want to mix up the screens because, it will become a jigsaw puzzle when it’s time to put them all back.
You can start the window screen cleaning process by pulling them all off. If the screens come off from the inside, just set each one next to the doorway of that room. If they come off from the outside, set each one next to the window that it came from.
You can then gather a few screens at a time to clean. After each small batch is cleaned, put them back on the same way they were taken off.
Tip: The best place for cleaning window screens is out in the front lawn on a nice warm day.

Screen Cleaning Procedures

Step 1 Fill your bucket with warm water. Mix in a few drops of dishwashing soap. Starting with your first batch of screens, dip the brush into the soapy water, and lightly scrub each side of the screen.
Step 2 Hold the screen up with one hand and gently whip the back side until all the water comes off. To tell which side is the back, look for the rubber cord located around the edge. This cord is what holds the screen in the frame. Whipping or tapping the opposite side could push out the screen.
Step 3 After all the water has been gently whipped/tapped out of the screen, wipe the frame. You are now ready to put the screen back into place.

Extra Dusty Window Screens

When it comes to cleaning window screens, the method above will work most of the time. There may be a few exceptions for screens that are super dusty. What I find works best is it to pre-dust each side. You can do this by using either a vacuum with an upholstery nozzle, or dust them with a dry rag. You may have to dust each side twice. After most of the dust is off, follow the steps above.

Stained or Faded Screens

Certain outdoor screens that are made of vinyl may still look dirty even after they have been pre-dusted and washed. This could be because the dirt has stained the surface of the vinyl. Sometimes screens will become faded from being exposed to the sun. For the most part, stained or light fading should not affect the performance of keeping bugs out. If this is a concern, see the link below on screen repair.

Vinyl V.S. Metal Screens

You will find that most modern homes are equipped with vinyl screens. This is mostly because vinyl is less expensive than metal.
Vinyl screens are lighter in weight and are usually easier to clean than metal screens.
Metal window screens are more durable and will last longer than vinyl. They also will not fade in the sun.
The down side to metal frames is that they are not as easy to repair, and the repair job will more than likely be more expensive than a vinyl screen repair job.
However, if keeping your pets in is a concern, cats and small dogs will be less likely to claw or chew through metal screens.

In your bucket

Cleaning windows is relatively straight forward once you have all the correct tools and know what you’re doing.
Cleaning Solution
In your bucket all you need is cold water and some washing up liquid and that’s it. There are people who swear by putting in a bit of vinegar and other rubbish but I wouldn’t bother.
I’ve personally started using Ettore Squeegee Off because I’ve found it actually allows you to clean windows faster than if you just use regular washing up liquid. I don’t think Squeegee Off gets the windows looking any cleaner than washing up liquid, but it does let you squeegee windows faster.

Squeegee Off solution

I’m not sure why, but the Squeegee Off solution lives up to its name by getting more of the water off the window when you squeegee it. This is important because it means you have less detailing to do. (Detailing is the mopping up of trails and water at the edges of the window with a scrim/cloth after you’ve squeegeed it.) Because you don’t have to spend as much time detailing, this makes you ultimately faster and capable of earn it
