11 Tips From A Professional Window Cleaner

Let’s know 11 tips from a professional cleaner so that we can get accurate guidelines for window cleaning! 

  • Equipment

Having high-quality tools will help you clean your windows effectively from the outset. Here is a list of what you would find in my window cleaning bucket. Some of this may be a little more specialized, but you should be able to find everything at a big hardware store, or a cleaning supplies shop – a professional window cleaning supplies shop is even better.

  • Bucket

Usually big enough to accommodate the mop and squeegee. For homeowners, this blue one might be a bit much, but it’s ideal for pros.

  • Squeegee

The quality available ranges widely and is perhaps the most important instrument of all. We recommend investing in a high-quality one rather than the kind you buy at the gas station.

Good quality squeegees usually consist of three sections and are assembled. Channel, rubber piece supports it and handle. When the rubber starts to wear, it can be changed and when both sides are worn, it can be replaced. 

We professional window cleaners usually have a preferred rubber brand, but we don’t believe it makes a significant difference.

  • Mop

The plastic T-bar and sleeve are divided into two parts. If the sleeve gets dirty, you can remove it from the T-bar and wash it. Usually, Velcro or buttons are used to fasten it. An ideal length is 14 or 18 inches.

There are several varieties of sleeves: porcupine, regular, and scourer, the latter of which has a scouring strip on one side to help remove tough stains. Water retention is my favorite.

It’s convenient not to have to return to the bucket frequently to add additional water. There are two options for handles: fixed and swivel. The swivel is much better and easier on the wrist when using a pole.

  • Scraper

This has replaceable metal blades and works well to remove tough stains like paint, varnish, or tenacious insect marks. 

For the majority of maintenance tasks, a small one-inch pocket scrapper is sufficient, but larger 3 and 6-inch ones that fit onto the end of the pole work well for scraping larger areas. 

Use glass scrapers with caution! If you don’t employ the right techniques, you risk doing irreparable harm!

  • Detergent or Other Formula

Use branded and harm-free window cleaning formula or detergent that eases your work. 

  • Rags

It can simply be an old towel. Always use a microfiber cloth and a towel. Later on, more on how to use them.

  • Poles

Use one that is short and extends. It measures 1.5 meters when closed and 2.3 meters when open. Use a 4-section pole that can reach a height of three stories, albeit it is quite difficult to clean precisely at that length. Squeegees on a pole can often only go up to two stories. 

  • Ladders

We urge you to select a three-step step ladder because it’s highly practical, and anyone who is not comfortable being at heights should avoid using an extension ladder, which may reach up to 2.5 stories high.

  • Belt Tool

This serves as a support for a side bucket and provides good access to your scraper and rags.

  • Bucket-on-a-Belt

Experts use this tool. It’s a little bucket that hangs from a belt around the waist by one leg. It’s a terrific spot to conveniently store your mop and squeegee, preventing them from dripping all over the place and providing you two extra hands for other tasks like climbing a ladder or working on the roof.
