Darren Does Window Cleaning

All window cleaning techniques are essentially the same. One wets the window with water, agitates the grime to bring it into solution, and then get all the dirty water off the window leaving behind clean glass.

The difference is the care and attention that the person cleaning the window gives. At Darren Does That, we guarantee your clean windows.

In the bustling city of Edmonton, where the urban landscape meets natural beauty, the importance of clean windows cannot be overstated. From residential homes to commercial buildings, sparkling windows not only enhance the aesthetic appeal but also contribute to a healthier and more pleasant indoor environment. In this comprehensive guide, we delve into the world of window cleaning in Edmonton, exploring techniques, benefits, choosing the right service, and much more.

Understanding Window Cleaning Techniques

Window cleaning has evolved significantly over the years, from traditional methods involving a squeegee and bucket to modern, high-tech approaches utilizing water-fed poles and pure water systems. While traditional methods are still effective for certain situations, modern techniques offer efficiency and safety advantages, especially for high-rise buildings. Additionally, the equipment used in window cleaning has undergone innovations, with advanced tools designed to achieve streak-free results efficiently.

Choosing the Right Window Cleaning Service

When it comes to selecting a window cleaning company in Edmonton, several factors merit consideration. Reputation, experience, insurance coverage, and safety protocols are among the key aspects to evaluate. It’s essential to ask pertinent questions regarding their cleaning process, safety measures, and satisfaction guarantee before making a decision. By conducting thorough research and obtaining multiple quotes, homeowners and business owners can ensure they choose a reputable and reliable service provider.

The Process of Window Cleaning

Professional window cleaning involves a systematic approach to ensure thorough cleaning and safety. It typically begins with an initial assessment and quote, followed by preparation, including the placement of drop cloths and safety harnesses. The cleaning process itself involves the use of eco-friendly solutions and specialized tools to remove dirt, grime, and streaks effectively. Finally, a comprehensive inspection is conducted to ensure the windows are spotless and any remaining imperfections are addressed.

Benefits of Professional Window Cleaning

The benefits of professional window cleaning extend beyond aesthetics. Clean windows contribute to enhanced curb appeal, creating a positive first impression for visitors and potential buyers. Moreover, regularly cleaned windows allow more natural light to enter indoor spaces, reducing the need for artificial lighting and improving energy efficiency. Additionally, clean windows promote better indoor air quality by eliminating dust, allergens, and pollutants that accumulate on glass surfaces.

Safety Measures in Window Cleaning

Safety is paramount in window cleaning, particularly in high-rise settings where workers are exposed to elevated risks. Professional window cleaners undergo rigorous training and certification to ensure they can safely navigate heights and operate equipment effectively. Employers also implement strict safety protocols, including the use of personal protective equipment and adherence to industry standards. By prioritizing safety, reputable window cleaning companies mitigate risks and protect both their employees and clients.

DIY vs. Professional Window Cleaning

While some homeowners may attempt to clean their windows themselves, professional window cleaning offers several advantages. Professional cleaners have the expertise and equipment to achieve superior results efficiently, saving time and effort for busy individuals. Moreover, hiring a professional ensures safety, especially for windows in high or hard-to-reach areas. While DIY cleaning may be suitable for maintenance between professional cleanings, it’s advisable to rely on experts for periodic deep cleaning.

Maintaining Clean Windows

To prolong the cleanliness of windows between professional cleanings, regular maintenance is essential. Simple practices such as wiping down windowsills, removing debris from tracks, and spot cleaning can help prevent buildup and preserve clarity. Additionally, scheduling periodic professional cleanings ensures thorough removal of stubborn dirt and grime, maintaining the pristine appearance of windows year-round.

To get windows incredibly clean we use a combination of the traditional and the cutting-edge. For up-close work, interiors, and ground floors we’re masters of the squeegee. We achieve a streak-free finish with mild dish detergent, wicked squeegee skills, and lint-free detailing cloths.

For work at heights, we use a pure water cleaning system. Think about it like the spot-free rinse at your favorite car wash. A multi-stage filtration unit cleans all the contaminants out of the water, and we send it up a 40-foot carbon fiber pole to scrub and rinse your windows clean.

When the water evaporates, nothing is left behind but beautiful see-through glass. Despite the terrific technology, this system still takes skill to use. Luckily we have that in spades.

It’s not as magical as you might hope. We use blue Dawn, though we’ve used Sunlight, Palmolive, and soaps marketed specifically to window cleaners in the past. What’s in the water isn’t as important to a terrific window cleaning result as getting all the water off the window so nothing is left behind. For that, it’s all about the squeegee technique.

Of course, if we’re using our pure water cleaning system there’s no soap at all!

You’ll see in our window cleaning quotes we use the term Building Envelope Glass to describe what all is included. The building envelope is the part of your house that separates the interior heated spaces from the outdoors. That means that the glass in your front door is included, but things like glass railings, windows that look from one room into another, interior glass doors, and sunroom glass are not. Can we clean those? Absolutely! Please make sure we know you have additional glass you’d like cleaned and we’ll make a quote that includes it.

We love cleaning interior windows! We take great pride in making your windows truly see through by doing a bang up job cleaning both sides.

For Exterior Window Cleaning you do not need to be home. We’ll message you when we’re on our way to your house, and send you the bill electronically when we’re done. We do want you to prep a couple things for us first though:

Please ensure you’ve left a gate unlocked for us.

Please clean up doggy mines from your yard.

If you have screens on the exteriors of your glass that cannot be taken out from the exterior, please take it out from the inside. We hate having to leave uncleaned glass behind.

Pretty well any way you like! You can have a cheque or cash ready for us, but most prefer to pay by e-transfer or credit card. When the work is all done we’ll text or email you an invoice with an address to e-transfer to and a link to follow to make a secure online credit card payment.
