I have started to wash the windows at the Sherwin-Williams store on Main St. in Newark. They had not been cleaned by anyone in a long time, but now they want me to do the window cleaning once a month. The first time I did the cleaning I had to get rid of a lot of tape and sticker residue, which can be done in a few different ways. You can use a razor blade or scrub pads or heavy duty cleaner/chemicals. For this job I was able to use a new razor blade and clean off the residue easily. However, a razor blade can scratch some glass so it should not be use in all situations. If you do choose to use a razor blade to clean glass please make sure that it is a new blade. Old blades are dull and can get nicks and tiny bends in the blade and that can cause it to scratch the glass. Also, always wet the glass first before using the razor blade to help it glide across the surface. I found a nice little video on Ehow.com about the proper way to use a razor to clean glass. You can watch it by clicking here. If you get your paint and paint supplies from Sherwin-Williams let them know how the windows look.
I clean windows all year long. Businesses and store fronts need constant cleaning to look good. Especially in the winter when snow and sleet and salt gets splashed all over the place. But what about the windows at your home? I found an article on windowcleaning.com that has ‘4 good reasons to maintain your windows clean throughout the year’. You can read the full article here.
I’ve been a window washer for over 15 years now. Cleaning windows in places like Columbus, Cincinnati, Zanesville, Granville, Lancaster, Cambridge and a hundred places in between. I’ve also done a lot of pressure washing over those years. Pressure washing concrete and vinyl siding on homes and businesses. I bring this up because, although it is usually a once-in-a-while job that takes a few hours, this week I have multiple days filled up with pressure washing jobs. And this week it is all residential. Mostly vinyl and a little stone and concrete and a few small decks. I don’t particularly like power washing decks but I will take my time and make sure the wood doesn’t get damaged.
I also offer some other services that you can find listed in the Services page.
