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.
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

Seems pretty easy to clean gutters huh? Well it is not. It’s a lot of hard, awkward work since you will have to use a ladder to reach your gutters.
We always recommend hiring a professional who has many years experience with working on ladders. Ladder work is not for the faint of heart. You can injure yourself if you were to fall, so please be extremely cautious and take your time if you plan on cleaning your own gutters.
Of course, you can always request a free estimate here if you wish to hire us. We offer more than just gutter cleaning as you can see on our home page.

We now feature roof moss treatment and removal at LangleyWindowCleaning.com. Removing moss from a roof is extremely hard work, yet the results can be nothing short of amazing after you see the difference.
You can see how to remove moss from a roof in this video I made on location in 2014 in Langley, BC, Canada.
If you live in Greater Vancouver area, you know how much it rains here and what a favorable environment we have for moss growth; especially on the north side of a roof!
We are always working on improving our removal process so as to do no harm to your roof. In fact, having it removed properly can extend the life of your roof.
Depending on your location, your house may be a little more prone to moss growth, especially if you have trees nearby. It’s best to not let it get too out of hand, so we recommend having your roof treated once a year to keep things under control.
In really extreme cases, we can also gently clean roofs as shown in the above video. We can access most gentle pitched roofs. We will not climb on steep pitch roofs. We will utilize fall arrest harnesses and safety lines where necessary for our safety.
If you have problems with moss growth on the roof of your house, and you would rather not risk climbing up and tackling it yourself, you can always fill in a quote request to get a free estimate delivered to your inbox.
By having moss removed from your roof, you may save the thousands of dollars it would cost to have your roof replaced. You can save money by allowing us to clean the moss of your roof. Why not give us a call today?
