Worried about the rain? Worry no more!

A common misconception is that rain causes windows to dirty and spot. Not true. As discussed and dispelled in Good Housekeeping magazine and Martha Stewart Living, rain does not cause windows to dirty or spot.
 
However, it is a commonly held belief that windows should not be cleaned when it rains because the rain will just make them dirty again. Is this really a fact? Does the rain make my storefront or building windows dirty?

The simple answer is 'no'. It is normal practice around the country for window cleaners to carry on in all weather except storms and high winds. Rain does not make the windows dirty, dirt does. Dust accumulates on the outside of the glass from lawn mowers, leaf blowers, tree pollen, car exhaust, droppings, and many other sources. This dust settles as a uniform layer on the glass. When it rains, the rain drops push the dust into different patterns and after the water dries the dust remains on the glass. This new "mud residue" is now highly visible because it is no longer uniformly spread but is sporadic throughout the pane. Clean glass will stay clean after a rain because once the rain water dries, there is nothing left behind to obscure the view.

When windows are clean the rain will simply run off and the glass continues to remain clean. Rain water is pure water. You can put it directly into a bucket and clean windows with it!

So, with that, we will give you the most generous rain guarantee we've seen in the marketplace yet for commercial storefronts.

YOUR SATISFACTION IS 100% GUARANTEED FOR 48 HOURS!

None of our competitors offer a guarantee this strong. In fact, they don't even offer one. If you find any marks on the glass caused by the rain, we will come back. Simple as that.

Your windows are guaranteed to look great in any kind of weather. Whether it's 90 degrees and sunny or it rains during or after your window cleaning service is completed, you can rest assured that your windows will look great! If for any reason you are not pleased, let us know and we will make it right. Please contact us within 2 days of your window cleaning service if your windows get dirty because of the rain, so that we can promptly address your concern. We feel as comfortable with this as any other guarantee. Why? We've never once been called back because rain ruined our work! Every time we've followed up with customers they were amazed how clean their windows stayed, even after it rained!

Our Weather Policy

So, what if the forecast predicts rain... If it is not raining it is our policy to complete the job as scheduled. If it is raining but the precipitation is light, we will proceed as scheduled because rain does not affect the cleaning. In the circumstance of heavy rain, downpours, or high winds, we will return when the rain stopped, unless you have sufficient awnings that cover the storefront. In the event of extreme weather, all inside work may still be completed as scheduled to avoid disrupting your busy calendar (or ours), then we will come back to finish the exterior after the extreme weather is gone.

Because we know your time is important like ours, our weather policy effectively ensures that all work orders are completed in as timely a manner as possible. From our years of experience, we are able to make accurate decisions to ensure that service quality and safety come first in serving you. We are confident you will be pleased.

To recap. We use only the finest methods and cleaning solutions to wash your windows, we guarantee your windows will stay sparkling clean even after it rains; however, if it rains within 2 days of your original window cleaning service and you feel your windows still don't look great, and you call in that time period, you get a complimentary touch-up on the affected windows.

More on... Rain Water is Pure Water
Rain water is very, very different from pool, sprinkler, or even water from your hose. It's pure or de-ionized. Rain water is naturally soft, containing almost no dissolved minerals, salts, or chemicals.'

The truth is, windows need cleaning because they get dirty NOT because they get wet. Windows are engineered to use rainwater and natural sunlight to remove organic dirt and debris. So, if your windows are clean to begin with, the rain will simply sheet off the glass and your windows will continue to remain clean. Regular rainfall could even help your already clean windows stay cleaner longer!
When completely purified water drips on a surface and then either drips off or evaporates, it leaves absolutely nothing behind, leaving you with a still clean surface. After all, it is pure. So rain won't ruin your clean windows!

How Do You Clean Windows?

How to Clean Windows:

Every glass window needs cleaning to look good. This is not as easy a task as you may think. Following a few small steps, cleaning windows can be done without much effort and time.

1. The first thing to do when deciding to clean windows is to choose the time of day when visibility is best. Professional window cleaners typically choose early morning, or later in the afternoon when the sun is not directly on the glass you will be cleaning.  The sun will dry the glass fast and will most likely leave streaks. To avoid this risk, it is better to choose a cloudy day so that the sun cannot dry the cleaning agent.

2. Before you start cleaning the windows, it is necessary to clean the windows and openings first. A tip is to pass a brush with wide bristles between the cracks in the window to eliminate dust.

3. Divide into parts and start from top to bottom.

4. There are many specific products for window cleaning, but if you want to wash your windows like a pro, you will need a squeegee, and a mixture of dish soap and water.

5. Use a scrubbing cloth or window mop to get the soapy water all over the glass; scrub harder on the dirty spots. Now use the squeegee to gently pull all the soapy water off the glass.

This should leave the windows spot-free and looking great!

What is the best way to clean windows streak free?

It is a common desire to get your widows spotless.

Is it even possible to achieve this feat? Yes, it is possible to clean windows streak-free if you follow basic steps or with the help of professional window cleaners in your city. The prime tip for a clean window is avoiding using towels, rags, or paper towel glass cleaners. The reason is that these "cleaners" will simply move dirt around your glass and will show when the sun shines through your windows.

Using a spot-free water rinse, or a squeegee will give you the best odds for perfect results.  Spot-free window cleaning utilizes water that has had all the contaminates removed.  Scrubbing the glass, and then rinsing it off will remove any spots or smears and leave it sparkling.  Finally, rinse with pure water further to remove the remaining streaks.

What is the Best Window Cleaning Solution?

When it comes to homemade window cleaning solutions, you can't beat ordinary household vinegar. It has an antibacterial, germ-killing acidity which works wonders on just about any surface, including windows. And it's all-natural and non-toxic, so it's perfectly safe to keep around the house.

For the best results, you'll need to create a mixture of white vinegar and warm water, then apply it to the window with a sponge. The amount of dirt that has accumulated on your windows will determine how strong your vinegar solution needs to be. On average, a 50-50 split should be fine, but if the window in question is particularly dirty, you could even try straight vinegar.

A frequent problem with homemade window cleaning solutions is the streaks they leave behind on the glass. With vinegar, that's not a problem. The great thing about vinegar is that it's cheap and easy to come by, while its effectiveness has been celebrated by home-care gurus the world over.

Professional window cleaners typically use a simple dish detergent such as Dawn liquid as their best window cleaning solution.  The key to this is the commercial squeegee that pulls off all the dirt from the glass and leaves it perfectly clean.

How Do You Clean High Windows?

When it comes to cleaning high windows, there are a few different approaches you can take. It all depends on just how high they are. If it's several stories up, for example, then you're going to need to invest in a ladder. But make sure you are taking all the relevant safety precautions when you set up, such as checking that its "feet" are completely flat against the ground. Uneven ground could throw you off balance and puts you at greater risk of an accident. It might even be worth shopping around for a ladder with non-slip feet. Also, you will need to check that the ground is firm- you don't want to run the risk of your ladder sinking in the mud.

Alternatively, if you don't have a head for heights, your best bet might be to use an extendable window cleaning pole that will allow you to reach upstairs windows without leaving ground. This is certainly a safer option, but of course it won't allow you to reach those really high spots.
