Turpentine & Baby Shampoo

“What’s your secret?” This is one of the most common things said to our field team… trumped only by: “You missed a spot!”

I know you usually kill at the office parties but I assure you we aren’t amused by that one anymore.

Final construction clean - window cleaning in Columbia, SC by Clean Metro, Inc.So, what is the secret for windows that WOW? Our Field Supervisor usually responds “Turpentine & Baby Shampoo”. Don’t. Believe. That! I’m going to let you in on a long-kept industry secret, but don’t tell anyone else, okay? It’s Dawn. Seriously, that is our standard detergent for commercial glass cleaning! Hey, it’s good enough for the seals in an oil spill, right? If it is a really tough case (think: ketchup covered kiddie fingers smeared all over the glass) we’ll add a shot of ammonia. So, how do we get a sparkle so pristine it fools poor little birds? It’s all in the skillful twirl of the squeegee. It takes time to perfect, so let us use our experience to maintain your windows in their perfectly crystal-clear state.

Multiple stories? Construction cleaning? Don’t try that at home! 🙂 Call in the experts at Clean Metro, Inc.! Construction cleaning presents its own unique set of risks. If you don’t want to replace scratched windows thanks to an inexperienced team, you should only choose a company with extensive construction window cleaning experience, like Clean Metro, Inc!

Between cleanings, what can you do to maintain those high-traffic areas? A microfiber cloth and a little elbow grease will do the trick! It’s a great chemical-free way to keep the fingerprints at bay. PRO TIP: Be sure to use cloths that have not been washed or dried using any fabric softening agents. This same method can easily be used in your home! If you hit a really tough spot, a dash of ammonia on one corner of your cloth will knock it right out. A word of caution: Use ammonia with discretion since the fumes can be overwhelming and we recommend gloves! Also, never mix ammonia with any other cleansers or chemicals!
