How to Clean French Panes in 5 Steps [VIDEO]

How-to Clean French Pane Windows

In the above video, William demonstrates how to do a construction clean of French pane glass on a residential home.

The secret is to apply very little water to the glass when cleaning.  Using too much water on this style of window will likely cause water to remain in the frame and release later causing runs that leave unsightly residue on the glass.

When wetting your applicator, first dunk it, then wring it out really good so there is very little water left in it. Using a slightly wet applicator is  key to cleaning this style of window.

5 Steps for Cleaning French Panes

 

Step 1: Wet the panes from bottom to top

Step 2: Carefully blade the panes to remove paint (use a new blade at your own risk)

Step 3: Wet the panes a second time from bottom to top

Step 4: Squeegee the panes dry from top to bottom

Step 5: Detail the edges of the panes with a clean, dry cloth

You can do this yourself if you have the right tools for the job or you can hire us to do it for you.

Earth Day: Solutions to Dangerous Toxins Found in Your Home

Danger of Toxins

Sometimes have you been found thinking, “If they sell these things on the shelves of our store, how can they be that bad? We all have been guilty of believing that surely those companies are watching out for our wellness. I encourage you to do your research. Be aware of the products you’re bringing into your home. I for one have replaced (actually tossed out) all chemicals and now solely clean my home and car without. I am healthier and happier and I even clean about 70% less and have more time for my family.

Does Norwex Work Better?

Wow! I want to say a huge thanks to fellow Independent Norwex Sales Consultant, Sonya Eckeland her team for conducting a school science experiment around the EFFECTIVENESS of standard chemical cleaners vs. the Norwex Enviro Cloth! They wanted to test how well various cleaners cleaned up RAW chicken juice!! What the experiment shows was that the Norwex Enviro Cloth completely REMOVED all the traces of raw chicken from the surface! Here are their test results.

Green means CLEAN!! Wow- those results are pretty clear- only ONE tested GREEN!! Norwex leaves a TRULY CLEAN surface! I can assure you… you won’t miss having to shell out cash for all of the standard cleaners, wipes, disposable dusters & paper towels… not to mention the healthier home that you’re creating!

Watch it remove raw chicken and other harmful bacteria from your kitchen in this video:

Cleaning Windows at Auto Dealerships

20140310-132928.jpg

Cleaning glass at automobile dealers can present numerous challenges. It is good to have a moderate to high skill set when washing exterior glass at dealerships. Reason being is that there are many situations/tasks that a beginner/newbie window cleaner may not have the experience to tackle skillfully. This is not to say that it cannot be done by a beginner.

It is always recommended to hire an experienced window cleaner who has numerous years of experience working around parked cars, moving cars, awnings, signs, customers, displays, etc. If you are a property manager or a strata member, you know that you don’t want to have someone on the job who may not know what they’re doing and is unaware of their surroundings.

When you hire a professional who has multiple years of experience cleaning thousands and thousands of different types of windows and glass utilizing different methods, you know you can be at ease because you’ve hired a qualified professional.

Sometimes it may cost slightly more to hire a more experienced window cleaner than it might even cost hiring a larger company with a fleet of vehicles and lesser experienced workers. There is no price for peace of mind though.

When people of Greater Vancouver, British Columbia hire us, they experience not only clean, sparkling windows. They are also grateful for choosing a professional, whose focus is on safety, great customer service and quality.
