Spring is a good time of year to get pressure washing done around your home or business. Pressure washing will remove all that algae, mildew and other organic matter off your surfaces to make everything look great gain for the summer! We use Low Pressure Washing or "Soft Wash" on most of the surfaces we clean. It's safer this way, of course for concrete or brick surfaces, then we use hot water pressure washing.

Get your windows cleaned and let the light shine!!!
This is damaged to a window due to not using a professional window cleaner. This can happen by not knowing the type of glass your cleaning, using the wrong equipment or technics in cleaning the glass. Don't let this happen to you, call a professional to care for your window cleaning needs.
A lot of people don’t have their windows cleaned in the winter mostly because of the cold weather or they would rather have it done in the spring. But having them cleaned in the winter has it’s advantages, first most window cleaners are not that busy so you don’t have to wait a long time to get it scheduled. Also, they will stay cleaner longer because there is not as much dust and pollen in the air. But sometimes its just too cold to get them cleaned!
I usually get this question a lot, but the truth is there is no right answer. It really depends on two things. First, the house, how often do the windows get dirty? If the owner has pets or small children, if the windows are in an area that gets hit by a lot of wind and rain then they probably get dirty quite often. Second, the home owner. Some people can’t stand dirty windows, not even a little. I would say at least once a year you should have your windows cleaned. It's all up to you though!
This is a question I often hear as a window cleaner. The short answer is no, rain doesn’t make your windows dirty... dirt does. Many people blame the rain because it leaves spots on the glass but this happens because the rain simply collected dirt that was already on the glass and left it behind after it evaporated. But if your windows have just been cleaned the rain will not leave any water spots because it’s pure water with no dissolvable solids. So it will evaporate clean, no worries.
Automatic sprinklers can be great for your lawn when they are properly adjusted, but can cause damage to your windows. Over time, the water that is spraying on your windows is drying and leaving hard water deposits on your window. As the months and years go by, this buildup will "fog" your windows or hardwater deposits will be very visible. The good news is it can be remedied. The deposits can be removed by specialized chemicals that are for this, also try adjusting your sprinkler head.
Do your screens look like the screen on the left? Over time screens will weather and become dry rotted, brittle, develop tears or holes. There is a relative simple fix, have them rescreened. You will get new screen fabric and spline that holds the screen material in. Repairing your screens not only help keep the insects out when you raise your windows but it also adds curb appeal to your home. See the picture above for the difference it can make and then go for it, get them fixed.
The Significance of Hard Water
Dissolved minerals increase the hardness of water and reduce its effectiveness in cleaning. Magnesium and calcium are two minerals that reduce the foaming and cleaning effects of soap. Total dissolved solids (TDS) are organic and inorganic materials that exist in water. High levels of TDS cause spots and streaks to appear on glass. Softening the water involves removing these minerals, which increases the effectiveness of cleaning.
Have you ever seen your windows like this picture? So why does this happen? Most windows older than 15 years are at a higher risk of fogging due to their age. I've also seen windows less than 2 years old which had fogging, there are several reasons why, here are some of those:
1. Poor installation the seals were damaged in the process of installing the window 2. Low quality windows 3. Manufacturing error, coming bad from the maker of the window. 4. A small crack in the window itself.
