Our services include window cleaning, both exterior and interior, and commercial grade pressure washing. Our experience includes dozens and dozens of buildings cleaned annually.


How do we remove typical construction debris like adhesive, cement splatter, caulking, etc. off of glass?

Scrapers can be used to remove the following items as long as the glass is not defective, containing fabricating debris and glass fines:
  • plaster
  • taping mud
  • paint
  • texture
  • tape
  • stickers
Using a razor blade on cement will scratch glass. You cannot push or drag cement material across glass without it scratching. Chemical use is required.

Chemical Use: Cement splatter can be loosened and safely removed from glass with the aid of chemicals. We use Titan Laboratory's "MDR-B" Mineral Deposit Remover. Another product we use is called Oil Flo. It is a safety solvent cleaner also manufactured by Titan Laboratories. It is a specialized product for removing debris such as:
  • gum
  • candle wax
  • silicon caulk
  • roof tar
  • asphalt
  • tar
  • oils
  • tree pitch
  • mortar
  • adhesive stickers
  • stucco

Silicone Caulking

Removing silicone caulk from windows can be a very time consuming and tedious process. At most post construction window cleaning job sites, window installers leave silicone caulk on glass in the form of smears, finger prints, and globs. Oil Flo once again is our go-to product. Trying to remove these marks with a glass scraper, steel or copper wool pads, white nylon pads, just smears the caulking and does not effectively remove silicone from glass.

  2. Restaurants

Post Construction Window Cleaning

The post construction clean is the most important clean that your windows will ever need. Our team has experience in all kinds of post construction window cleaning for both commercial and residential properties and we can remove even the most difficult of debris. We help to get your new windows looking new -as they should!

Reasons To Hire Professional Window Cleaners and Pressure Washers After A Building Project.
  1. Windows and the building structure itself have unique debris on them that would not normally be found during the usual operation of a building during its life cycle like paint, cement, silicon, glue, excessive dirt, and various other special residues.
  2. All it takes is one large scratch and a piece of glass can be ruined and glass is expensive!
  3. This is your project and you want the best result!
Why Hire Squeegee Pros For A Construction Clean for windows and pressure washing vs a 'cleaning crew'?
  1. Residential and commercial maid services, although great at cleaning other surfaces do not usually have the expertise or tools for a specialized glass or pressure wash clean after a build.
  2. Our job is cleaning windows and structures, we have come across thousands of different window and pressure washing jobs and know how best to tackle each.
  3. We use top of the line official window cleaning equipment for scraping off debris.
  4. We use high end commercial grade mobile and trailered pressure washing units.
  5. We use proper techniques and take no short cuts.
  6. We are flexible on how we approach cleaning depending on the type of glass there is no one size fits all.
  7. We do not hire cheap laborers or other cleaners to pre-clean the glass.
  8. We know what scratches glass and what does not.
  9. We have worked on large expensive glass projects with much success.
  10. For best results, schedule us last or as late into the project as possible so we are not called back for costly re-cleans.
It is very important to hire trusted professionals for an initial clean as they are called. Unfortunately, it is all too common that non window cleaners and unskilled pressure washers, or other tradesmen in the course of attempting to remove paint and other debris have inadvertently scratched the glass or structure itself. It happens. NO shortcuts should be taken. Post-construction window cleaning and pressure washing needs to be done carefully and thoroughly. Regular cleans are then usually much easier and quicker afterwards.

Tips For Protecting Your Glass During Construction
  1. Leave the glass installation till as late as possible in the process.
  2. Leave protective plastic coatings on the glass till the construction is finished.
  3. If there is no plastic cover then find a way to shield the glass.
  4. Make sure care is taken by the glazier when installing the glass.
  5. Care taken by tradesmen and other workers when working around the glass so as not to spray it with debris, bump it or cause other damage.
  6. Most scratches on glass occur from existing tradesmen on the job.
Following these tips will ensure that your glass is in the best state when it comes time for the clean, and once all post-construction window cleaning has been finished they will look brand new and contribute to your property to look its sparkling best!

Partnering with Interior Construction Cleanup Companies

Squeegee Pros, Inc. does not do full interior post construction cleanup. However, we do partner with companies that do. Most cleaning companies DO NOT know how to effectively and safely clean windows whether inside or outside, and fewer have the appropriate commercial grade pressure washing units with the specialized know how on how to use them. Don't let your project become a recipe for disaster, hire a company with experience. Call and meet with our project managers, walk us through your project, and allow us to work up a proposal for you to review.

Upon acceptance, we will schedule the job scope you request and go to work, ultimately working as efficiently, quickly, and most importantly, safely to get the job done, leaving you with a smile.
Note: Before Squeegee Pros starts any new construction project, a scratched glass waiver must be signed by the construction company or contractor authorizing the window cleaning work at a post construction site. Work cannot be started until this waiver is signed.

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.
