Window Washing Services

A painter that does window cleaning in the greater Toronto area? YES! We do window. Both washing and cleaning – and not just limited to glass either. Often exterior and interior surfaces of newer windows are clad with vinyl or metal. This too can get very dirty and dingy looking and need cleaning.

Extend the life of your windows and sills

The washing and cleaning of windows is a part of our normal painting work. We’ll advise you on what can be done – and provide a fair and affordable price to complete this as regular maintenance work. Additionally, exterior clad surfaces at windows and other trim surfaces will provide a longer product life when properly maintained.

Tools We Use for Window Cleaning

Chamois & Scrim — Chamois is a basic method used to loosen and remove dirt, followed by a buffing with cheesecloth, or scrim.

Water & Squeegee — Generally, chemicals are added to water, and a device such as a brush or cloth-covered handle is dipped into the resulting solution and used to scrub glass. A squeegee is then used to sluice the dirt and water mixture from the glass.

Four Different Types of Squeegees We Employ

  1. Window squeegee is the most famous one because it is used on all types of windows. Your house, commercial or even car windows can be cleaned with the window squeegee.
  2. Floor squeegees are mostly used for large surfaces like floors, they’re mostly used in hospitals and other large buildings.
  3. Stiff blade squeegees are found in using grouts to tiles.
  4. Horse scrapers are applied to in houses to eliminate sweat and dust from the layers.

Environmental Solutions (where we can)

We try to use products that are as environmentally-friendly as possible. However, chemicals are sometimes mandatory to get the job done. Chemicals added to the solution range from dish soap and glass cleaner to Trisodium Phosphate and etching salt. In sub-freezing temperatures, anti-freezing chemicals are added to the solution to prevent it from crystallizing on the pane before it is sliced off.
