Well if you're in this business than you and I should both know about window cleaning. Right?

You can ask me a question and I'll be more than happy to help you.

Thanks

Jas,
I am a handyman (dirty word) and clean residential windows 3-4 times per year. I do it the old fashion way and use microfiber cloths to wash and dry. I use a very dilluted Spi & Span formula to wash...then wipe dry.
All screens are washed then dried with compressed air. All window channels and sills are vacuumed and cleaned.

I see. first, you want to use squeegee and scraper to wash windows (it's much faster).
To clean screens I use "Screen Magic" solution. Just spray screens with screen magic than wipe off with microfiber cloth. This will save you a lot of time and give you great results.

To wash windows I use Unger the pill as this will give you excellent results. Make sure if you use this pill ad some Unger Easy Glide this will allow your squeegee to slide smoother on window.

Hope this helps.

I use a squeegee once in a while...sliding glass doors and picture windows. Tough on old divided light windows though.

That's fine.

Too often, we get one-shot wonders who stop in just to plant an advertisement. That's not what this site is for.
