Window Cleaning at Home

Some may believe that this post offers a motivating message, but that is not the case… this article is a call to action. And there’s a lot of it. “Massive activity” is another term for it. I don’t want to scare someone away by using the word “huge,” but it’s sometimes vital to be realistic. Good luck with your cleaning business if you think you’ll find success by looking for a good firm in the phone book’s yellow pages.

Project to Remove Water Spots

Here’s a short trip before you begin your water spot removal project. Improperly adjusted sprinklers most commonly cause hard water stains. So, before you begin, double-check that all sprinklers are properly regulated to avoid spraying the windows. You’ll first need a good Vinduespudser. I’m not referring to Limeaway or CLR.

The next step is to use a rag or scrubber to apply the stain remover. Apply this to the glass and massage in a circular motion until it feels smoother to the touch. The next step is to clean the window with the soap and water solution once more. After soaping up the window, use your squeegee to remove the soap and water. It can take a few tries to get the stain off completely.

Needed Products and Tools

You’ll need a few pieces of equipment to accomplish the job properly now that you know what solution to use to clean your windows streak-free. You might get reasonably priced equipment from a store that caters to professional window cleaners, which I have listed here.

One option is to order tools online and have them delivered within a week. Basic items can also be purchased at a hardware store such as Home Depot or Lowes. For the greatest outcomes, below is a list of a few fundamental goods you’ll need to make your job go more smoothly and quickly.


For home windows, a 6-inch to 12 inches is ideal, while for business and storefront windows, an 18-inch to 22-inch is ideal. To be safe, it’s best to get a few different sizes.


A wand can be purchased from a hardware store. Get a squeegee that’s the same size as yours. Soaking your glass and cleaning your screens will be significantly faster due to this.


“Huck towels” or “surgical towels” are the best towels to dry the edges of your windows. They’re made of 100% cotton, are absorbent, and lint-free. You can order them from J Racenstein or purchase them from a janitorial supply business near you. Maids frequently use these. If you can’t find this towel, don’t worry. A typical tightly woven cotton rag will suffice but have a few more on hand, so you can always use a dry window washing towel.

Bucket for Window Cleaning

Any container or bucket with a capacity of 2 to 5 gallons qualifies. Almost anything that you can carry and move easily would suffice.

Ladder with Steps

Self-explanatory: Depending on the size required, it can be found at any hardware store. A 6-foot step ladder will suffice for a single-story home and most storefront jobs. These are commonly used in homes to assist with cleaning the outside windows, which are typically taller on the exterior, and cleaning over the door entryway windows.


To remove screens and dig any leftover material out of the corners of window tracks and frames, you only need a flat head screwdriver and occasionally a Phillips head screwdriver.

Window Cleaners Who Are Professionals

Finding a professional window cleaner to clean your windows at home or work is easy. Type in your city or town name and then “window cleaning service” to receive a list of nearby businesses. If you use Google, a map with listings in your region will most likely show.

Washing Costs

This information should be useful if you are attempting to figure out how much it will cost to have your windows cleaned by a professional. Most Vinduespudser firms count windows to calculate a price point for their estimate. Here are some very basic criteria you may follow to ensure the pricing is reasonable and assess if hiring a professional cleaning service or doing it yourself is more cost effective. A brief note: If your home has more than one story, hiring a professional is strongly advised.
