Knightsbridge conservatory cleaning

Conservatory cleaning in Knightsbridge today was more challenging than usual, because the conservatory that was cleaned by the Knightsbridge window cleaner was located on the 4th floor of a roof terrace. To make up for the difficulty of this cleaning work however were the spectacular views of many iconic London buildings that were noticed in the vicinity. These stunning city views went some way to compensating the window cleaner cleaning this conservatory. As conservatory cleaning is more physically demanding task than most other window cleaning tasks.

Spick & Span window cleaners arrived on site in Knightsbridge at 8:30am, on the first impression the property was beautiful, situated in a Brompton Square apartment in Knightsbridge, London, SW3. This very attractive Georgian period, 4th floor apartment, is just a short walk from Harrods, and located just off Brompton Road. After completing a full risk assessment, the Knightsbridge conservatory cleaner selected a host window cleaning of tools that would get the conservatory and windows looking like -new again. The tools that were best suited to cleaning this conservatory were: a telescopic pole, abrasive pads, cleaning detergent, brushes, and a portable trolley with a water pump, and of course water.
The conservatory was in desperate need of a Knightsbridge window cleaner, as according to some, the conservatory had not been cleaned for at least 15 years. This estimate is quite likely correct. There were green algae and sun baked dirt and dust which were very stubborn to remove. There were also dust deposits that had blown in from nearby basement excavation work.
The homeowner was very keen to get this conservatory cleaned thoroughly as according to her own admission’ it had been somewhat neglected over years.’ This ‘Glass veranda’ as it was described is used as a dining area, and place for guests who visit, to enjoy the Brompton road and Knightsbridge skyscape.
It required a lot of elbow grease on the part of the Knightsbridge window cleaner to scrub away this dirt, but the results were very satisfying to see afterwards.
After thoroughly washing the roof panes and rinsing with purified water all the side glass panels of the conservatory were washed.
In all this Knightsbridge window cleaner and conservatory call-out took around 2.5 hours to completed from start to finish.
Needless to say that the propertys owner was very satisfied with how clean the conservatory looked after, which also was very rewarding to hear.

Reaching windows whatever the height in Belgravia

Belgravia window cleaning was required today by a client there who was anxious to have the windows of her 6 storey property, just a short step from Belgrave Square, cleaned by a professional window cleaning company in the Belgravia, Knightsbridge area.

The client had been dissatisfied with the windows of the period property being in a murky and unclean state, but felt that there was no alternative to this situation, given that the windows of houses in Belgravia are so high up and difficult to reach and that most ‘sensible’ window cleaners would not venture to use ladders to reach windows located at such colossal heights, such as those contained in Belgravia properties.
Because of this train of thought, like so many in central London, she felt resigned to putting up with dirty windows on the top floors and not having the maximum amount of natural light and sunshine reach into the home but made do with the status quo, dirty windows, being concerned with cleaning just the lower windows and interior window cleaning.
Upon investigation it seems that many residents in Belgravia would like to have a regular and reliable window cleaning service with a company that they can trust, however it seems that few window cleaners work in Belgravia offer window cleaning services to owners of very large properties, sticking to just smaller homes and shops in central London. As a result of this avoidance may could be left thinking that  windows at a height above the 2nd level are un-cleanable, much less as a 6 storey townhouse, such as the one owned by the client in Belgravia who’s windows Spick & Span cleaned today.
Granted for traditional window cleaners within close proximity to Belgravia it would be impractical and inadvisable to take on such a task because of the risk to window cleaner and the potential damage that could be caused to the paintwork. Many residents of Belgravia are familiar with the man with a ladder type window cleaner but had not been aware of modern window cleaning practices that are completely adept and well suited to sympathetically restore sash window glass to their peak performance enabling them to get back to being translucent and making a neat and smart appearance.

Spick & Span are window cleaners who reach higher heights for residents within Belgravia

Window Cleaning Blackheath Village

Blackheath window cleaning was required today by a client there who manages an artisan bakery in Blackheath village. It was stated to us that the windows of the bakery hadn’t been cleaned for ages and required a good going over on the inside and outside and so we went to this location well prepared. Spick & Span were required to attend this job during unsociable hours so as to cause minimum disturbance to businesses, but this is not a problem and we were more than happy to comply with the request.

Spick & Span window cleaners provide commercial and domestic window cleaning services for clients in Blackheath and the Royal borough of Greenwich and are based in Lewisham just a short drive away, and have built up a reputation of reliability and trust.

Spick & Span window cleaners were more than happy to provide window cleaning services to this bakery which is a hub of the Blackheath village community and renders a very necessary purpose.

Spick & Span used glass cleaning detergents that are ideal for removing grime, fat deposits and flour residue which are common to food establishments, such as a bakery. The windows were very grimy and some of display area was difficult to clean because of the bread shelves. These obstacles were surmounted by using telescopic poles as well as window cleaning ladders. Some areas required window cleaning more than once. After carrying out a very thorough window clean, inside and outside of the premises the glass gleamed and the bakery had a much neater appearance enabling the artisan bakers to display the produce in the window display area, which is key area that the bakery is able to use to generate more sales.

Because of the difficulty to locate professional and reliable window cleaners in Blackheath
and because of the level of professionalism that Spick & Span window cleaners have displayed. This artisan bakery in Blackheath village have made and arrangements  to contract Spick & Span window cleaners  to provide a weekly clean of the bakery on the inside and outside of the windows and other windows of the shop are being considered to be added to the regular window cleaning contract.

Georgian property window cleaning in the Royal borough of Greenwich

Greenwich window cleaning was required today by a client there who was anxious to have the windows of her quaint 3 storey Georgian property, just a short step from Greenwich park and  the observatory of Greenwich, cleaned by a professional window cleaning company local to  the Greenwich, Greenwich Park area.
The Greenwich client had been dissatisfied with the windows of the period property being in a murky and unclean state, but her regular window cleaner had retired a few years ago and she had not been able to find a replacement.
Given that the windows of houses in Crooms Hill, Greenwich are so high up and difficult to reach most local Greenwich window cleaners would not venture to use ladders to reach windows located at such heights, such as those contained in many Greenwich  Georgian properties.
Many who live in Greenwich feel resigned to putting up with dirty windows on the top floors and allow dirt to restrict natural light and sunshine from reaching  into the home, which effects the ambience and feel of the home.
It seems that many residents in Greenwich would like to have a regular and reliable window cleaning service with a company that they can trust, however likely few window cleaners who work in Greenwich provide window cleaning services that is up to the task of reaching the top windows of  very large properties.
Granted for traditional window cleaners within close proximity to Greenwich it would be impractical and inadvisable to take on such a task because of the risk to window cleaners and the potential damage that could be caused to the paintwork. Many residents of Greenwich are familiar with the man with a ladder type window cleaner but may not been aware of modern window cleaning tools that are completely adept and well suited to sympathetically restore Georgian sash window glass to their peak performance enabling them to get back to being translucent and making a neat and smart overall appearance.

Window cleaning in Mayfair  today was both rewarding and exhilarating as the weather in Mayfair was perfect for window cleaning, making the window cleaners work there a pleasure.
When you visit Mayfair to window clean you can never be too sure who you may see along the way.
Today for instance when going to clean the windows for this client we saw two Michelin starred celebrity chefs, also a well-known Antique roadshow expert who work in the Mayfair locality.
However what gives Spick & Span window cleaners the most enjoyment cleaning windows in Mayfair are the type of properties that we are asked to help clean in this area of London. This Mayfair property that we went to clean today was by far the main reason why Spick & Span take delight in cleaning windows in Mayfair and surrounding London neighbourhoods.
Spick & Span window cleaners worked on Sackville Street W1S  in Mayfair as part of a renovation project on behalf of property developer who had worked to transform this property estimated to be worth around  £50 million pounds. This Georgian period listed building had been given beauty treatment by local London based property developers, however the Georgian glass windows were dusty and grimy due to the building work as were the roof-lanterns. This Georgian period property stood tall in it’s surroundings and was majestically stunning in it’s appearance, but it now needed expert window cleaners who work in Mayfair to come down to Mayfair to clean the windows. Split over 5 levels it had original Georgian multi-paned sash windows which had iron bars, there were also 5 glass roof lanterns, serving as light wells to allow natural light to flood into the interior.

Spick & Span window cleaners had to liaise with a porter on site and had been appraised beforehand about the difficult access to many of windows that the property developers needed to be cleaned. Spick & Span took great care when working inside the building so as not to damage the carpets. Care was also taken by the window cleaners not to damage the recently installed parquet flooring with the foot of the ladders.
Spick & Span window cleaners work frequently on listed buildings in the Mayfair and the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea and use high reach and specialised window cleaning equipment that is adept at cleaning large buildings.

SW1X Window Cleaning

Window cleaning today in Belgravia was a real pleasure as the sun was blisteringly warm and the clients who made the booking was extremely pleased with the end cleaning result.

Spick & Span window cleaners went down to Belgravia SW1X today to clean the windows of a listed building in Chesham place., in between Belgrave Square and Pont Street. Spick & Span window cleaners were hired by an attorney who manages the building on behalf of the property owner.

The windows of this 6 floor property could not be cleaned sufficiently by regular Belgravia window cleaners but required professional window cleaning in the Belgravia area.
Because of the height of the windows they had not been cleaned for many years and this showed as the windows were coated with a very thick and heavy film of dirt and pollutants from the road traffic.
Spick & Span window cleaners have gained years of window cleaning tall Georgian listed buildings in Chelsea, Belgravia, Pimlico, Sloane Square, Kensington and Knightsbridge as well as other areas of the Royal borough of Kensington and Chelsea.
Spick and Span use large reach and wash telescopic poles which can reach over 6 stories high, making them ideally suited to large buildings such as those located in some of the more exclusive neighbourhoods of London. The window cleaning brushes that Spick and Span use to clean Sash windows are fine bristled meaning that they clean windows without damaging the glass.

The windows were first of all washed from the rear of the property. All the sash windows were scrubbed and then rinsed clean leaving them completely smear free and shiny. After the back windows were washed window cleaning commenced at the front of the property. Chesham place is home to a number of embassies pedestrian traffic and as a result the street is very busy, this made it essential that wet floor and safety signs be visible and all trailing hose be kept clear.
The windows looked so much better after the cleaning. The windows shimmered in the sunlight and looked so much brighter, giving the building a much better appearance. A neighbour on the street observed the window cleaning and took advantage of the Belgravia window cleaner and requested her windows to be cleaned and arranged for a follow up in a week’s time.
Spick & Span were delighted to be involved in this window cleaning project and were happy to be of service.

Commercial window cleaners in south london

Commercial window cleaning was performed today in South London, Lewisham SE13 by Spick & Span window cleaners on behalf of new client based in Central London. The windows at the commercial property were very tall and required ultra-deep cleaning on both the interior and the exterior, including frames.
The client, that Spick & Span were contracted by, was desperate to get the windows cleaned quickly and Spick & Span window cleaners were invited to carry out a deep clean at unit as soon as possible as the unit was soon to open.
The modern and contemporary glass commercial unit had very recently come to the end of internal renovation work by the client and so was to be handed over to its new owner, hence the need for the very thorough and deep window clean.
The deep cleaning requirements for this project were that the cleaning be carried in the absence of the client and that Spick & Span window cleaners liaise with a neighbour to collect the keys.
A trusting relationship was therefore crucial. Spick & Span would be trusted to collect/return the keys and carry out the work without supervision.
The windows were extremely dirty outside because the site was based on a very busy road that joins nearby Deptford to Lewisham, where this site was located, also the site was near to the main railway station and there is a lot of construction work taking place locally.
Internally dust deposits and other debris were fastened to the glass panes and the window sills were covered with thick dust which carpenters and builders had left behind after they had completed constructing a wooden staircase and mezzanine floor.
This commercial cleaning work of the unit was done by Spick & Span window cleaners within a very short time frame at the clients request and all the windows glistened after the window cleaning was completed.

Glass partition wall window cleaning

Today Spick & Span went down to Fulham SW7 to inspect a roof lantern and glass partitions on behalf of client who is keen in getting her roof lantern and glass panels cleaned professionally.
Internal glass partitions are becoming increasingly more and more common among homeowners bringing rays of light into dark covens of the home. Many contemporary and luxurious properties in London’s swanky neighbourhoods have glazed light wells and panels such as those that cover excavated basements or glass corridors that bring natural light into the hallway, Glazed roof panel and roof lights are also on the increase.
Many window cleaners neglect to offer these services and many domestic staff are completely ill equipped to cope with them during their cleaning duties.
These glass areas within contemporary and refurbished properties situated in London can become a nuisance to look at for homeowners when they are contaminated with grime and dust and the odd spiders web.
Domestic staff at best dust these areas and often smear them with old fashioned window cleaning remedies.

End Of Tenancy Window Cleaning East Dulwich

End of tenancy window cleaning in East Dulwich

Today Spick & Span window cleaners visited a property in East Dulwich as part of an end-of tenancy window cleaning service to clean windows there on behalf of a tenant who was in the process of moving home.
The client, who was busy cleaning the flat in preparation for a move away from this rented property in East Dulwich, needed all the windows to be left spotlessly clean to satisfy the requirements of her tenancy agreement.
Many Landlords stipulate that in order for a tenant to receive back their full deposit the property must be left spotlessly clean by the tenant or as the agreement often defines ‘in the state that the property was at the time it was moved in to’.
Moving home can be a stressful affair at the best of times, add to this the uncertainty of receiving back a large deposit, which often is needed as a down payment for the new rental property, and it becomes clear why employing a domestic cleaner or window cleaner, is the sensible option for most London tenants who have come to the end of their tenancy .

Not only will a good residential window cleaner help lighten the load of client who has come to end of his/ her tenancy, but often times, professional window cleaners can be a good source of knowledge to tap into during this process . It could be the case that a good window cleaner may even advise you on some domestic cleaning tips as part of the bargain.
Spick & Span window cleaners stand by their work and offer money back guarantees on all residential window cleaning contracts, which includes end-of –tenancy window cleaning. Spick & Span also provide invoices as proof of window cleaning, which can be shown to Landlords, if ever they should require.

knightsbridge-lennox-gardens-wcToday Spick & Span window cleaners went down to Knightsbridge in the Royal borough of Kensington and Chelsea and carried out a Knightsbridge domestic window cleaner service on behalf of a client who required inside and outside domestic window cleaning in Knightsbridge SW1X.
This red brick property which is located in Lennox Gardens, SW1X 0DF, is on the former site of the Prince’s Cricket Club of Knightsbridge a very famous sports club of the 1800’s,often frequented by nobility.
The windows of this Luxurious property in Knightbridge needed the services of a professional domestic window cleaner in knightsbridge.
The houses in Lennox Gardens are a mixture of gothic and baroque-in-style dating from the second half of the 19th century, and the central garden, which is surrounded by thick hedge and shrubs with ornamental garden has a very well-kept lawn.

Residential window cleaners in Chelsea

Chelsea Embankment SignToday Spick & Span window cleaners went to clean windows in Chelsea SW3 as part of a bespoke Chelsea residential window cleaner service.
This very spacious and grand converted Chelsea property was set over 2 floors and had all windows cleaned inside and out by a professional Chelsea window cleaner.

Why were professional Chelsea window cleaners required?

The owner of the property had not had the windows of her Chelsea home cleaned for over a year and because of this the windows were extremely dirty and were obscuring natural light from entering into the home.
Many average window cleaners in Chelsea are not able to reach windows that are so high-up with ladders and many are not prepared to clean windows internally as well as externally. Also many window cleaners in the Chelsea area concentrate mainly on commercial window cleaning making window cleaners who carry out domestic window cleaning in Chelsea difficult to find.
Spick & Span window cleaners who are regularly contracted to perform window cleaner work in and around the Royal borough of Kensington and Chelsea felt extremely happy to tasked with the assignment and were praised on the window cleaning methods used as well as the attention to detail whilst cleaning the windows of this Chelsea home.

Spick & Span window cleaners use a very clever window cleaning contraption that is both portable and powerful. What this allows is for windows that were once out of range or ‘uncleanable’ because of health and safety concerns to now be cleaned using hi-tech window cleaning machinery, that allows for windows to cleaned with the use of ladders.

Mansion block ChelseaWhat type of windows were cleaned at the Chelsea property?
The windows of most Chelsea properties are Victorian wooden framed sashes, ocassionally we find Georgian glass and this property was no exception, there were also 4 sets of French doors that had Georgian style glass as well as Victorian sashes.

How excellent results are achieved in Chelsea residential window cleaning?
To clean the windows on the outside of this property only water that had a very high level of purity was used.
This is important as it means that the window cleaner can have complete confidence that the windows will dry completely spotless after window cleaning.
The windows on the inside of the property were cleaned using hot clean water and clean hand tools.
The chemical that is used is designed to clean windows in very hard water areas, such as Chelsea.
After all the windows had been cleaned, a lint free cloth was used for detailing.

Pet friendly window cleaners in South London

Vet window cleaning 2Today Spick and Span window cleaners did some commercial window cleaning on behalf of a Veterinary surgery that has been caring for pets in South East London for over 20 years.
Spick & Span window cleaners are pet loving window cleaners, and felt proud to be invited by this trusted Veterinary surgery to do window cleaning to improve the working environment for its friendly staff and for all our furry, feathered and scaly friends that come to the building.
Providing a pet friendly window cleaner service makes us proud, and motivates us to provide an excellent and professional service on behalf of clients.
Why the windows needed cleaning?
Vet window cleaning 4The Veterinary surgery in New Cross had undergone some recent building work increasing the number of windows and office space. However these newly installed windows had become incredibly dusty due to the debris from the nearby building site, also the Veterinary surgery is located on a very well-travelled road that is high in pollution and exhaust fumes.
It is a well-known fact that professional window cleaning makes a building look much lighter and airy.  This clean and hygienic atmosphere is good for doting pet owners, who already face high levels of stress, and whether or not pets pick up on their owner’s mood is still open to debate.
How the window cleaner worked?
Spick & Span window cleaners are pet friendly window cleaners who have years of experience cleaning the windows of clients who own pets, and so negotiating around the curious pets and owners at the Vets was not a problem.
Vet window cleaning 3Spick and Span window cleaners use modern and safe window cleaning equipment and aimed to provide the minimal amount of disruption to the animals whilst window cleaning.
Spick & Span window cleaners prefer methods of window cleaning that friendlier to the environment and use purified water rather that chemicals.
Purified water attracts dirt and dries without spots, waste water is either evaporated or absorbed by plants and vegetation.
What were the end results of the window cleaning?
All the windows of the surgery and the attached offices were successfully washed and were left gleaming and completely dirt free and transparent.
The pets seemed unaware of what had been taking place outside and disruption was kept to a minimum.

As a complementary part of the service all the frames were wiped, as was the plastic tubing that protruded out beneath the patio doors.
The large glass roof light of the kitchen extension could only be cleaned successfully from out of one of the bathroom windows. This was cleaned with the aid of window cleaner’s extension pole.
When window cleaning the windows inside the house Spick and Span used damp micro-fibre cloths, this was to limit the use of water, and so as a result, minimize the risk of water spillage.
Spick & Span window cleaners have been very busy working in Battersea of late as this in now the 5th time that Spick & Span window cleaners have cleaned windows in Battersea within the last 3 weeks.

How do you clean sash windows three floors up?

SW7 Window cleaning BWHow on earth do you clean sash windows three floors up?
What do you do when it seems that there is no ladder on earth long enough, and your money is too tight to hire a cherry picker and yet you can barely see through the windows?
Your local window cleaner doesn’t seem to have the equipment or the know-how.
Is there some genius way of doing the outside without needing to resort to abseiling down the wall to get to them?
Some clients we work for speak of the days when they used to hang out of the windows, but thinking of people taking such risks makes my tummy wobble.
What do you do for instance with a bathroom window, that is not particularly high up but is very awkward to reach? Do you dare to lean out as far as can to wipe, even though most experienced window cleaners wouldn’t take such a risk?
Some wipe as far as they can reach or use cloths wrapped around a wooden stick to wipe and then chuck water at the areas that they can’t reach. It works for them, but it’s far from ideal.
What do the professional guys do?
Most traditional window cleaners would open the bottom of the window, sit on the sill with head outside, facing in. Clean the outside of upper pane. Open the top of window, stand on a chair/ ladder inside and andthen lean out to clean the outside of upper half pane, but if you attempt this be careful you don’t fall! Also be warned, it can be very mucky, which is why it’s such a hated job.
Most of us don’t have enough of a head for heights, and leaning far out of the window for most of us is not what we really want to do.
So what are the alternatives?
Well it could be that your fortunate enough to own the type of windows that swing inwards check whether there are catches at the top of your windows, and hinges that can be opened as this will make cleaning them a lot easier. Most Upvc framed windows can open in this way. If not then you will need to consider some other options.
A safe alternative to leaning out of your window might be to use a device, such as a magnet window cleaning sponge. It is like two sponges covered with magnets on a long string. The way it’s supposed to work is that one of the sponges is moistened and put it on the outside of thewindow, with string coming in through the window, then the other magnet from the inside the window is used to control the wipe motion on the outside . However be warned this will not result in a streak free finish.

Window cleaner in Fulham

Fulham House Front Fwt.Today, Spick & Span window cleaners went down to Fulham in the royal borough of Kensington and Chelsea , to clean the windows of a very large property, on behalf of a property developer.
This fabulous 7 bedroom period property, which was set over 4 floors, was formerly the Guatemalan embassy and had just had undergone some recent renovation work.
Spick & Span window cleaners, who are based a short distance from Fulham, and who are often employed to clean windows in the royal borough of Kensington and Chelsea, were more than happy to provide the client with a professional Fulham window cleaner service.
Fulham House inside Fwt.The window cleaning for this property began bright and early in the morning, which was required, as a photographer was booked for the afternoon.
Spick & Span window cleaners were needed as the windows had lots of stains and smear marks left on them by a regular domestic cleaning company who had attempted to clean the windows, but were unsuccessful.
Because the property was being prepared to be placed on the market it was essential that great care be taken inside the house. New carpets had been laid throughout the property, therefore great care was taken to prevent water spillages, dust sheets were also used underneath work areas.
This Fulham townhouse was very tall, therefore to reach the outside windows Spick & Span window cleaners used a 47ft reach window cleaning pole which is able to reach the 5th floor windows from street level. After cleaning the outside windows, work commenced within.
Fulham House back Fwt.It was observed, from inside the property that windows were looking much nicer and shinier outside now that that they were thoroughly scrubbed and rinsed with pure water, however the smeary marks on the inside of the windows were now more noticeable. Many of internal windows also had secondary glazing panels, which couldn’t be removed; this made the job more challenging. All the windows on the inside of the property were cleaned using a special window cleaning chemical which is particularly suited for hard water areas such as is the case in London. The tools used were a step ladder, dust sheets, a bucket, micro-fibre cloths and scrims, a mop applicator and squeegee. The window cleaning took around 5 hours complete. All the windows were thoroughly washed.
The effects of this window cleaning were that it enhanced the beauty of this property, making the renovation of it complete, making it much easier to sell, and making its appearance much more pleasant to any potential buyers.

Roof light window cleaner in Streatham Hill

Roof Light StreathamToday Spick & Span window cleaners were called out to clean the windows of a 6 bedroom period property in Streatham Hill on behalf of a Landlord who lives overseas.
In cleaning the 6 bedroom property in Streatham Hill, Spick & Span window cleaners had to work around a number of contractors including gardeners and painter and decorators.
Spick & Span window cleaners were required to clean the windows inside and out.
Starting on the inside of the property the window cleaner used dust sheets to protect the interior carpet and furnishings.
The equipment used for this job comprised of a step ladder, bucket with window cleaning tools, extension pole dust sheets, and a portable window cleaning trolley.
The window cleaning took a little over 3 hours to complete.
The property was set over 3 floors. In the attic were two large sky lights, which were cleaned. On the first floor there was a very large roof light that had become rather grubby and moss covered, which desperately needed window cleaning. The ground floor had some large Tri-folding doors that needed window cleaning as the paving outside hade recently been jet washed and left stains on the windows.
All of the windows on the top floor of the property were cleaned inside and out from inside the property, as the sash windows all opened and closed, however the sash windows on the first floor were sealed shut, and so could not be cleaned externally from inside. All of the first floor windows were cleaned externally using a reach and wash window cleaning system, which uses purified water to clean the glass. The windows were left sparkling and clean ready for the new tenants to move into the house.

Spick & Span came equipped with a lime scale remover that left the glass completely shiny and clean.
Chelsea Lime Scale removal resizedFor the very high up windows the reach- up- and wash pole method of window cleaning was used, but for lower windows conventional methods were employed.
In total the work took around 5 hours to complete, as Spick & Span’s Chelsea window cleaner service has emphasis placed more on the quality of the finish, and time is less of a consideration. The aim as always to give the client 100 percent customer satisfaction. To ensure this is the case Spick & Span insist that an inspection of all windows be carried out by a staff member and be signed off by either the client by their representative.
Spick & Span get a thrill from bringing a smile to the clients face when they carry out the Chelsea window cleaner service.

How to clean windows like a pro – the traditional way

How to clean windows like a pro – yourself

Households across the country are feeling the pinch due to the recession. Many households just don’t have the disposable income that they once had. High house prices and student tuition fees mean that we are all looking for ways to save a bob or two.

With a little bit of know-how you can reduce your window cleaning bill by around a third by cleaning the inside windows yourself. By all means you will need to expend a bit of effort, something that not many of us want to do, but the results can be pleasing, especially when we look at the piggy bank at the end the end of the year.

By following a few simple steps this brief guide will have you cleaning windows as good as the guy you see down the road. You know – the one who seems like he’s been cleaning windows – since the Victorian age.

What equipment do I need to clean windows like a professional?

First of all throw away that manky bottle that you’ve got in the cupboard under the kitchen sink! I know it promises to make your windows sparkle, to remove the grime and take the strain out of cleaning but the truth of the matter is it aint gonna work. If you choose to use it you will wipe and wipe and wipe until your arms ache with pain and what will you get for all your efforts? Tennis elbow! You’ll have a smudgy mess, and wish that you paid the window cleaner in the first place. If you look at your window cleaner, if you can see him through your windows, you may even see him chuckle. So please take my advice, and don’t, whatever you do, use the dodgy chemical that the harp on about on the TV ads.
Can I just say at this point also, please, please, please, please, please, if you are going to use a ladder do so responsibly, and if you are pregnant, get the other half to do the work for you.
Statistical ladders often mean accidents. What’s the defininition of an accident, I’ll leave you to check on google.
Now that that’s out of the way we can get down to the nitty-gritty. How can we clean windows like a professional – the traditional way?
In the olden days before all this high-tech-stuff was around what did the old window cleaners used to use? Like the one in the photo above, No, don’t say  “vinegar and newspaper” who wants their house smelling like a fish and chip shop?-P00! Hold your nose . Any takers? I didn’t think so. No, not vinegar, but plain old H2O, it’s not rocket science really , just water and little secret ingredient, well at least it was until now, shhhhh! don’t tell anyone I told you, washing up liquid, “Is that it” I hear you say, “yes, that’s it”, water and a little washing up liquid, “surely there must be something else”, you say, and yes, you’d be right, but this is the recipe that will, hands down, beat all those chemicals that appear on the adverts-where the grime disappears with the waving of a wand -and if you believe that you believe anything! Believe me, try it and you will see, it worked in the past, when traditional window cleaners got up at the crack of dawn and charged a shilling per house, and it still works now.
Now that we’ve intoduced the cleaning agent, next the tools.
Go down to your nearest pound shop, “did I say pound shop” “yes that’s right, you wanted to save money didn’t you.” Go down to you nearest pound shop, if you have one near where you live, if not a hardware store, and buy yourself some micro-fibre cloths, you will need at least two, these cloths achieve results as good as that grey cloth that traditional window cleaners used, which was called a scrim.

How to clean windows like a pro

Now to the part that requires all the effort, the part none of us really like. Here’s what you do, after you’ve put on your marrigolds (yellow, or pink it doesn’t matter) : take one of the special cloths that you got from the pound shop earlier.
Soak the cloth in the water that has the ‘secret solution’ in. After its has soaked wring it out until it is only slighly moist and wipe the window pane in a circular or side to side manner ensuring that you get into the corners. Then take the dry cloth, which is why you need at least two, and repeat the process that you carried out with the moist cloth, drying the pane completely. Repeat this process on all windows that are to be cleaned and smile and enjoy the view outside, and smile at the window cleaner while you’re at it! Why not, after all you’ve begun window cleaning like a pro- traditional style.

Why not drop me a line and tell me how it went.

How to clean windows that are very high up and difficult to access

It is important that before ever you undertake any window cleaning project, where the windows are high up and difficult to access, that you seek to follow safe working practices.

Falls from height and slips and trips are still one of the most common causes for death in the work place. (hse.gov/statistics). Even though the mortality rate for window cleaning and other work at height is so high,  few us take heed which is seen by us when we witness tradesmen and others around us taking high stake risks. Often it is non- professionals that the most vulnerable, the un-enlightened as these have not been trained to identify the risks.

The following is not meant to be a fully comprehensive list but provides just few bits of information that we hope will be prove useful for you if you or cleaning staff decide to clean difficult windows yourself.

 What not to do:

  1. If you or your domestic cleaners attempt to clean the hard to reach windows do not take any uneccessary risks.
  2. It is important that you avoid leaning excessively out of windows, and that you avoid using ladders or other tools that are damaged in any way.
  3. If you are pregnant it may best that you avoid this kind of work.
  4. Never stand on glass roofs or roof tiles without seeking guidance from manufacturer.

What you should do:

  1. Before commencement of work evaluate and take steps to minimize risks. You can find an example of a risk assessment here: hse.gov.uk/risk/
  2. Use appropriate PPE. such as gloves and harnesses where necessary.
  3. Use specialized tools for reaching difficult windows such as telescopic poles.
  4. If windows can be cleaned from inside, do so, as this will be safer, but use tools that can be attached to chains to prevent them from falling on to people walking below. Also use harnesses where possible.
  5. Think about employing professional window cleaners. This can save you time and often ensure better results.

Trustworthy window cleaner service in Battersea

Window cleaning a three storey building with a 35ft carbon fibre poleToday Spick & Span window cleaners went down to Battersea to clean the windows of a semi-detached 4 bedroom Victorian property, in a tree lined street in Battersea, SW11, which had Sash windows, French doors and Velux windows. The windows of this Battersea property hadn’t been cleaned in the last 3 years,which was the time when it came into the current owners possession.

Spick & Span arrived on site 5 minutes early, just in time to meet the householder before she left to go to work.

The window cleaner was not previously informed that he would be left unattended during the work, but no doubt because of having heard of positive comments from others who have taken out the service, the homeowner, who although was a first-time client, felt comfortable enough to leave the window cleaner unattended with a set of house keys and the code for alarm. Before leaving the property she instructed the window cleaner how to set the alarm which he did before he left.

In all the window cleaning took around 5 hours to complete. Spick & Span window cleaners were hired for the day to clean all the windows on the inside and outside. The client was particularly eager to have the velux windows in the dormer extention cleaned as they were very grubby indeed.

Spick & Span window cleaners started to clean the windows from outside the house first. We used a 35ft carbon fibre pole to reach the third storey windows of the dormer. All the external windows of the house were thoroughly scrubbed and then rinsed with water that has had all it’s contaminants removed. This water which has been purified through reverse osmosis attracts dirt like a magnet. It was necessarry that all external windows were thoroughly cleaned more than once in some places because there was a considerable amount of dust on the windows which was the remnants of past building work.

While cleaning within the property great care was taken to avoid spilling any water. This was especially important here because all of the carpets within the home were a light beige colour and so would’ve shown up any water marks that had spilled. As a precautionary measure, and to prevent the carpets from getting soiled the window cleaner on location used dust sheets below any areas of cleaning. Tall windows were accessed and cleaned from a large step ladder which was carefully transported around the home.

When the homeowner returned home from work she was delighted to see the transformation that the window cleaning had made. She was particular impressed that her trust Spick & Span window cleaner had not been misplaced and the top windows of her home were shiny and clean. She Battersea window cleaner service that she had received.

Dust sheets were used in all areas where window cleaning was done and where there was a risk of water leakage this practice was used throughout the entire duration of the window cleaning process this was to ensure that all carpets remained dry and that interior furnishings were not damaged. The window cleaner who cleaned this Belgravia home also made sure that he removed his shoes when walking through this property. This Belgravia window cleaner also went over any marks that were left on the windows with a micro-fibre cloth so as to remove water stains.

He did this by lowering the sash windows and leaning outside and cleaning them. This window cleaning method was necessary, because all the windows that were cleaned were on the top 3 floors of the 5 storey Belgravia building ,and so were too high up to safely clean from a ladder outside.

The villa  boasted some attractive original period features, including stunning bay windows, stucco detailing,  and original wooden framed sash windows.

Focal Point

As the windows are one of the main focal points of any home it is vital that windows be thoroughly cleaned if the house is to present well. However because the windows of the property had not been cleaned in at least 7 years much of the properties original appeal had been restricted, this was due in part to the dirt. This  had the effect of inhibiting the view from inside, and  detracting from the splendor of this period property from outside. Spick & Span window cleaners were more than happy to rise to this challenge and offer their services in SE13. The owner of the property employed Spick & Span’s Lewisham window cleaning service to bring back to new the windows of the property, unlocking the full potential of this exquisite home.

Window cleaning in the rain in Forest Hill, SE23

Spick & Span clean windows in the rain in Forest Hill1

Spick & Span window cleaners went down to Forest Hill, SE23 today to clean the windows externally of a 5 bedroom Edwardian Property,  despite the rainy weather.

Traditionally, when window cleaners used washing-up liquid or some other cleaning detergent, clients would be reluctant to employ them to come out on a wet day, feeling  that it would be money down the drain, however,Spick & Span who are window cleaners local to SE23, do work in mild rainy conditions, and have window cleaning techniques that stand up well to light rain.

This client that they worked for today in Forest Hill,  had complete confidence that the windows would be in a much improved condition, allowing more light into the home, despite the weather, and were more than happy to have Spick & Span window cleaners clean the windows in the rain.

Spick & Span purify water use to clean windows

Spick & Span window cleaners use a purified water method of window cleaning  What this involves is taking ordinary tap water  and putting through a 5 stage process of purification,(reverse osmosis). This purification process removes the dissolved solids, found in ordinary tap water . Without putting the tap water through this process, the dissolved solid found within ordinary tap water would leave grey spots and marks on windows if this were used to clean them.

Spick & Span window cleaners insure that the dissolved solid are removed to prevent this from happening and thoroughly test the product water.This specialized water is then transported to the work location  to be used to scrub and then rinse off dirt on windows, with the aid of a telescopic pole and brush.. This purified water has an added advantage in window cleaning, in that it literally attracts the dirt away from the glass, leaving the panes spot free. Because the window pane is left wet, and not squeegeed, any rainwater that falls onto the already wet pane does not leave spotting, but runs of the pane.

Spick & Span window cleaners went down to Forest Hill today and put this system to use. First of all the windows of the front of the property were cleaned and afterwards the trolley system that transports the water was carted to rear of the property to clean the windows there.

In total around around 22 windows were cleaned externally using this window cleaning method ,that suits the rain, the homeowner was very satisfied with the results.

Spick & Span window cleaners also clean windows internally when the rain is very severe.

Window cleaning is a very hazardous job for all but especially pregnant women which is  probably why a large percentage of Spick & Span’s calls are from expectant mothers.It is mainly in the interests of  hygiene, that  that many want their home to be completely dust and germ free at the arrival of their children, but especially in this case as the expectant mother planned to have her child at home.

Spick & Span window cleaners rose to the challenge and kept disturbances to a minimum whilst cleaning this property in Peckham so as to show extra special consideration for the circumstances of householder, although she first asked whether she should move into another room, the window cleaner took the initiative to suggest that work begin on the outside of the property, at the rear.

From the garden area, Spick & Span cleaned three casement windows and two glazing panels and the windows of a Upvc door. All windows were first of all scraped with a window cleaning scraper to remove paint marks with the exception of the windows of the door. These windows had to be treated in a different way as grooved patterns within the glass prevented them from being scraped. To clean this window effectively white spirits was used. After the white spirits was applied over the glass surface it was rubbed with with a scourer. Because of the smell of the white spirits, Spick & Span aerated the room to prevent the smell from causing any irritation to the mum-to- be. Whilst working inside the property care was taken in order to prevent water spillages and breakages. All objects were carefully removed from in front of the windows and dust sheets were placed under the bucket and step ladder. All windows frames were cleaned with a damp cloth to ensure that there were were no water marks left behind. At the front of the property was a bay window which had paint marks and thick dust blocking out the view to the street above  after this window was cleaned internally and externally using a window cleaning pad and squeegee the difference was clear.

At the end of this window cleaning job without any coercion or instigation by the window cleaner this happy client said that she would be in touch again the future.

After this process was completed, Spick and Span window cleaners used a t-bar hand applicator mop and then squeegee the glass dry using an s-motion. After this had been done a line scrim was used to buff out any marks that remained. After the outside glass was washed by the window cleaner, people that were walking down this busy market road in Waterloo began to notice much more what was taking place inside the store and became aware of that gallery was opening up. Although the inside badly needed cleaning, it was quite amazing how much difference that it made now that the outside windows had been cleaned. When the window cleaner went inside the gallery it became evident by the expressions of those within that they now had confidence that the gallery would be ready in time and they seemed to be able to visualize a little more what the overall appearance would be once the work was finally complete. The window cleaned the inside windows very much the same as outside, although with greater care not to spill water. Dust- sheets were placed under the areas where the windows were cleaned. One the attendants commented on how much better the place now looked and another said that Spick & Span had done a” smashing job.”

At the rear of the property on the ground floor there was a utility room that  had three casement windows  that were washed as well as a glass door . There was also a glass kitchen extension that had a glazed roof  and very large patio doors and window panes all of which required cleaning. On the upper level at the front there were five sash windows and at the rear of the property three sash windows and a glass panel.

All of the window cleaning at this property in West Dulwich  took place  without the homeowner being present, through prior consent, and took a total of two hours to complete.

Work started at the back of the property where the window cleaner used the following tools:A ladder, a  carbon fibre telescopic water-fed pole, a barrel of purified water, a bucket a washer mop, a squeegee, and a scrim.

The windows on the upper level at the rear of the property were the firs to be washed, they were thoroughly scrubbed with the window cleaning pole and brush, and rinsed with purified water. Then the glazed roof of the kitchen extension was cleaned. A ladder was rested on the flashing, rather than the brick work, to prevent damage to the paint work and to allow the top of the extension to be accessed for cleaning. The window cleaner used traditional methods of window cleaning and extended his reach with the use of pole. By attaching his mop and squeegee to a telescopic extension  pole he was able to reach in to the corners of the roof and and as well as clean the glass, remove leaves and silt , after mopping and pulling away the dirt with a squeegee the panes were dry and dirt free. After finishing the roof the window cleaner then cleaned the large patio doors. These were cleaned without the use of ladder , but with large window cleaning tools designed for large paned floor-to-ceiling type glass. After cleaning the windows of the kitchen extension and utility room the property was made secure and locked and all  tools were taken to the front of the property where work started on the front windows of the house.

High-level Internal Commercial Window Cleaning

Today Spick and Span window cleaners went down to an educational building in Kennington south east London, where they were employed to clean  internal windows located high-up  in the main hall area of the building .The modern educational facility had very large glass panes put in it, approximately 30 ft. from ground level, by the building’s architect to allow maximum light to fill the hall, however glass this high  is very difficult for on site cleaners to clean without having specialized high-level internal window cleaning equipment, hence the need to call professional window cleaners in.

Spick and Span were able to clean the windows and at the the same time reduce the risk of water running down the panes and damaging paintwork while cleaning by using a purpose built mop-head attached to an internal window cleaning pad .This mop and pad was connected to a telescopic window cleaning , extended to around 25 ft.To lubricate the glass and clean the windows effectively purified water was applied to the pad , this helps attract the dirt from the glass. To ensure that the glass was cleaned thoroughly and that dirt and dust adhering to glass was removed, an up- and- down and side- to- side action was used, whilst applying pressure to the mop head, to clean all the marks away  from the glass. After this window cleaning action had been repeated on all the large glass panels within the hall ,the panes were inspected, and a second stage of cleaning was performed. Upon completion of the glass cleaning in the main hall area of the college, there were noticeable differences after cleaning. Work then shifted to the reception area.

Some of the windows in  the reception/office had to first have some furniture moved before the windows could  be cleaned .

The windows  were  large paned floor to ceiling glass,  these had marks and smears of various descriptions preventing light from entering into in. For instance a milky white chemical substance covered much of the glass, which was the leftover results of previous attempts to clean. After the window cleaner mopped a special window cleaning solution and squeegeed the glass panels, they were again translucent and clear to look through. Posters were carefully removed from the windows at the main desk, and sellotape marks were scraped off, particular care had to be taken that no water was spilled as the window cleaner worked close to computer equipment and power supplies. After the windows were all cleaned and detailing had been done furniture that had been moved to get to the windows was put back into the original position, and the job came to it’s completion.

The contemporary building built in 2005, opened by the HRH Prince of Wales in 2007  is set in  Kennington SE11within sight of the House of Commons and the sound of Big Ben .  The glass areas that required cleaning were within the sites training rooms, offices, reception, meeting rooms, toilets  and hall.

Different combinations of cleaning methods were used to get the best results, and flexibility was required of the window cleaner who worked ,as the the training rooms could only be cleaned  intermittently, whenever the students took a break. However Spick and Span window cleaners were more than happy to meet this very reasonable request.

After being shown around the building the first area to have the window’s cleaned was a ground floor meeting room.

The meeting room had four, four-paned wooden casement windows as well as a glass door that was cleaned inside and out. The  method used was the traditional window cleaning method of a strip-washer and squeegee along with the use a window cleaner’s scrim. After this attention moved to a large hall also situated on the ground floor level . The Hall had low-level and high-level glass that had become dusty because of recent floor polishing.The low-level glass consisted of approximately 17 8ft by 2ft glass panels and one glass door. The high level glass consisted of approximately 34 panes of varying sizes, the majority of these were cleaned using a 35 ft telescopic window cleaning pole and purified water making it into a very light and airy space once again.

It was noticed that on a number of the window panes of the hallway there was resin like substance that spotted the glass and so this was promptly scrapped from the glass without scratching the surface beneath.

Many of the first floor windows were cleaned externally by standing on a sturdy platform.

As the window cleaner walked around the building through the gardens to access the windows at the back of window care was taken to keep to the pathed areas and high – and low-level glass was thoroughly scrubbed and the rinsed using the purified water window cleaning machine.

The reception area windows were noticeably dirty due to it being located so closely to the garden, and also smeary, these were thoroughly scrubbed with a window cleaners strip-washer and squeegee afterwards to be left  smear free.

After completing the work the facilities manager who obviously was impressed with the results remarked that they looked two hundred percent better than they had looked before.

Today Spick & Span window cleaners cleaned a property in  the Loughborough Junction end of  Camberwell on behalf of a group of students.The student who  arranged for the window cleaning on behalf of her housemates was on a strict budget and needed the work done before leaving for college, therefore the time selected for this job was early morning, but this also brought with it the challenge of keeping noise to a minimum so as to prevent disturbance to her fellow housemates that were still asleep.

At the end of the job she commented on her satisfaction with the speed that the work was done as well as the price.

The converted  period house in Camberwell had ten  windows in total , five of which were first floor, and the other  five were on the  ground floor . The window style was multi paned Georgian type sashes, therefore the method of cleaning that was suggested was the water-fed pole method of cleaning, so as to prevent lengthy time spent with detailing.

Work started at the back of the property where the windows were given a thorough rinse with purified water jetting out of an abrasive brush which scrubbed not only the glass panes making them immaculately clean , but also the wooden sash frames. Dirt  could literally be seen running down the glass panes as the purified water rinsed  above.

The student who required the window cleaning was impressed that window cleaning had moved forward from the use of ladders, and couldn’t help but observe the immediate difference that the cleaning  had brought to the kitchen window’s where she was eating her breakfast.

After cleaning the kitchen windows ,a normally difficult to reach window above a bathroom extension ,was cleaned with ease using a telescopic pole, the lower frosted bathroom windows were cleaned with the same pole that had been retracted .

After  drying the tyres sufficiently on the trolley that had transported the water and machinery  to the garden ,the trolley was then wheeled to the front of the house where the window cleaning resumed.

The three top windows at the front were noticeably dirty, particularly the top third of the window panes where road film and soot had gathered, theses were scrubbed with the high pressure jet window cleaning system, which after cleaning revealed a light airy room inside the home. Finally the ground floor sash window was cleaned as was a rectangular fanlight above the front door. The whole job was completed with this method in just forty five minutes, which was most appreciated by these student who had time constraints.

SE22 kitchen extension window cleaning

Glass extension window cleaning in Dulwich6

Today Spick & Span window cleaning went down to East Dulwich and did exterior window cleaning of five bedroom Edwardian property that also has a very large glass kitchen extension as part of a regular six-weekly cleaning contract.

The client, who initially contacted Spick & Span via a local community forum in East Dulwich on a one-off basis, has since set up regular window cleaning to maintain the large glass kitchen extension exterior as well as the windows at the front of her Edwardian property.

After cleaning the leaded glass at the front and side of the house on the ground and first floor with a purified water method of cleaning, the large glass kitchen extension is cleaned. The large glass kitchen extension has approximately 14 large 2m by 1m panes and 5 glass roof light panels  that measure approximately 2m by 1m. all of which require cleaning. To make sure that the glass extension always looks at it’s best the home owner has taken out a six-weekly cleaning schedule for the outside panes and a three to six-monthly clean for all the interior glass panels, this will be necessary because of the finger prints that the young children leave on the glass.

Spick and Span opt to clean these windows using traditional scrubbing and rinsing window cleaning methods, but have ensured that  large hand tools that suit large window panes are used. When accessing the roof to clean the roof lights above, care is taken, and it has been decided only to clean this part of the the kitchen extension either early, or late in the day, as the roof felt is set on bitumen  which melts and becomes unstable during times of extreme heat. When accessing the roof area leaves and other debris that hamper sunlight from entering the kitchen and office below are easily removed and glass panels are thoroughly  washed.

The large bi-fold kitchen doors and window panes that bound the extension are all cleaned from ground level with a very short extension pole.

It is always the aim of Spick and Span window cleaning to keep hassle to a minimum for all clients. For example during cleaning, maximum effort is made to prevent unnecessary disturbances,also if the visit of the window cleaner is during a busy time, whereby the homeowner has been unable to visit the cash machine an electronic invoice is sent and BACS payment is encouraged.

Local window cleaner to West Norwood

Today Spick & Span window cleaners took just fifteen minutes to arrive on location at West Norwood from their base in Camberwell, a short distance away, making them window cleaners local to the West Norwood , SE27 area.

After arrival at the three bedroom  property in West Norwood a brief assessment was made as to the cleaning methods that would be used. It was noted that some of the windows at the back of the property would be difficult to access by placing a ladder outside , because the property was set over two floors and built on a hill , meaning that the windows were very high up, also bay windows protruded  out underneath the target windows, making ladder access a problem, but as the client required the inside windows cleaned as well as the outside it was decided that the best way to approach this job would be to clean all windows from inside of the property.

The client was very realistic in her expectations stating that the windows had long been neglected, and certainly had not been cleaned in the years that she had occupied the property, nevertheless good cleaning results were accomplished through the methods employed.

Spick & Span window cleaners began work at the top floor of the property where the bedrooms were located, because of water spots on the glass, a water mark removal chemical was applied to some of the windows and left to penetrate, after which it was cleaned and then rinsed. In one of the second rooms there was putty on the glass that surrounded the window frame causing the window to look unsightly this was scraped off after the glass had been washed. In the stairwell area there was a large Sash window that was badly water marked and stained and while this did not come up perfect, because of damage to the glass itself, it was greatly improved through use of a water spot removal chemical and cleaning. After these areas frosted glass was cleaned in the bathroom and toilet and three sash windows were cleaning in the lounge and dining area two of which required paint removal cleaning. A difficult to reach window was cleaned above the kitchen sink and a stained glass window near the front door was cleaned with a damp micro-fibre cloth and  a fanlight window above the front door in the communal entrance was cleaned.

The client, who was a perfectionist, was very satisfied with the results. The whole job from start to finish took three hours ,for one window cleaner to complete.

The kitchen extension all of which is glazed with floor-to-ceiling, two by two metre, panes of glass and three glazed bi-folding doors and has glazed panels in the roof was in desperate need of cleaning, as cement splashes were on the glass, the metal frames of the extension also required scouring due to the the presence of dust and other debris. After Spick and Span window cleaners cleaned this glazed section of the house the homeowner remarked of the improvement.

At the top of the property were two bedrooms that between them contained   four velux windows, but only three were accessible, these were cleaned by using a damp cloth  to collect dirt and a dry cloth to remove any smeary marks that remained.

The middle storey contained the master bedroom which had four casement windows the upper section of which contained leaded glass, this glass was cleaned with damp micro fibre cloths, as well as a T- bar  window cleaners mop a squeegee and scrim.

The glazed roof lights of the kitchen extension were cleaned from out of one of the back bedrooms, after the sash windows in those rooms were cleaned  and after that the opaque, frosted, glass of the bathroom was cleaned.

The main lounge area of the downstairs of the property mirrored the master bedroom, having casement windows partly containing leaded glass, these were treated as the windows in the master bedroom, and were washed using traditional window cleaning methods.

All that was left to be cleaned in the inside were the  stain glass windows that  surrounded the front door, these were very gently cleaned to prevent them from being damaged.

The external  windows  at the top of the front and side of  the property were left spotless after they all were brushed  clean with purified water and a carbon-fibre window cleaning extension pole, the lower windows were cleaned traditionally with the use of  a small ladder.

 

Domestic window cleaner in SE15

Today Spick and Span window cleaners did a domestic window cleaning job in SE15.The work involved cleaning a two bedroom garden flat in a Victorian property internally and externally.The young couple had been in the accommodation for 18 months and the windows had not been cleaned during that time

There was a bay window at the front of the house, a fanlight above the front door, a velux window above the rear kitchen extension, two patio doors and a three pane window at the back of the kitchen. All the windows of the property were cleaned thoroughly as were all the frames.

The windows were mainly dusty due to being located on a busy road, but there was also quite a lot of grime that had stuck to the glass on the inside of the flat.

The work began at the back of the property where all the frames were  first of all wiped to remove the dust and dirt. Then to remove the stubborn grime of the kitchen windows a chemical solution was applied and the grime aggravated , and scraped and then washed .

The velux window in the kitchen was reached by using a two-section ladder, and was cleaned on the inside only after a dust cover was put in place to prevent drips from soiling work surfaces and the floor beneath. As there was a problem with the mechanism of the velux window this  was unable to be opened, and so the outside of the kitchen velux was cleaned from a ladder placed in the garden, and was reached with an extension pole . The glass was scrubbed and then squeegeed and all remaining spots and marks were rubbed out with a scrim.

Cleaning continued with the windows and patio doors at the rear of the home after which internal window cleaning was done on the front bay window.

To prevent the curtains from getting wet they were safely propped to the side to allow access to all the glass and this was cleaned in an s motion with both the hand mop and squeegee, all water runs were caught so as to prevent stains on surfaces underneath, at this point almost all the work was complete except the fanlight above the door, and the outside of the bay window, these were cleaned, as were the frames.

It was noticeable afterwards the difference in the properties appearance and the homeowners were very satisfied which was indicated by their generous tip.

Secondary glazing window cleaners

Secondary glazing panel window cleaning

Today Spick and Span window cleaning cleaned the windows of a 6 bedroom property in Denmark Hill. All of the glass within the house was cleaned  internally and externally, this job took one window cleaner a day and a half to complete.

Work began on the first floor of the home, which housed two offices, the leaded windows of one of the offices was cleaned very delicately inside using a damp micro-fibre rag, the second office on the floor, which had a large 6 pane sash window with hinged  secondary glass windows attached, was cleaned after unscrewing the secondary glazing, this was cleaned using a hand application mop and squeegee, the secondary glazing was also cleaned on both sides this way. In bedroom number one, on the first floor ,were two sash windows with secondary sliding glass, each one was maneuvered to allow the window underneath to be cleaned, the bathroom and toilet had opaque glass and so was cleaned very simply using a damp cloth. The second bedroom on the  first floor had two sash windows with sliding secondary glass panels, which were cleaned the same as the windows in the first bedroom.

Moving up to the second floor, there were three bedrooms, one with a small six paned bay window, which had secondary glazing ,this was cleaned internally and externally by leaning out of the window, the second room had  a  small sized sash window which was cleaned much the same , and the third room had a large velux window was cleaned by pulling it’s catch and reversing the window so that both sides could be cleaned effectively.

At the entrance way of the ground floor there was a  stained glass door surround, in the porch area and a fanlight above the front door which was cleaned. In the front room was a large six paned bay sash window  with secondary glazing ,also a set of two paned sash windows with removable secondary glass attached. All of the secondary glazing within this room was detached with great care and the glass panels were cleaned on both sides and the sash windows were cleaned internally, before the secondary glazing was replaced. The opaque glass of the door leading from the back garden to the living room was  cleaned with a cloth. The kitchen had four windows of various descriptions, which were  cleaned. In the lounge was floor to ceiling glass and  a set of french doors and Georgian style glass conservatory which was washed internally with the use of a ladder.The perspex roof of the conservatory was cleaned using  a  a special chemical and hose pipe . After all of the glass had been washed internally the front of the ground floor and first floor were cleaned externally with purified water and a water-fed pole, this method was also used at the side and rear of the property,with the exception of the conservatory, which  was cleaned using more  traditional methods of window cleaning.

Local window cleaner in SE22

Today Spick and Span went down to East Dulwich to clean the windows of a two bedroom flat in a converted Victorian terrace in SE22. The windows were in desperate need of a clean. The homeowner required window cleaners local to the East Dulwich area and therefore called Spick and Span to provide her with the service.The windows  of the property that needed cleaning were high up on the second storey of the property,and therefore would have been very risky for a window cleaner to reach from a ladder which no doubt was one of the reasons why they had not been cleaned by anybody  for such a long time.Three of the windows were located  at the front and two windows were at the back of the property, all were wooden framed sash windows. The homeowner was a little embarrassed by the condition of the windows, and desired only to be able to see out of them again. This was achieved through the deep methods of window cleaning that Spick and Span use.

Spick and Span window cleaners washed the windows using abrasive brushes and jets of purified water pumped through a pole. areas where water could seep through the glass were taped to prevent water ingress. The windows at the front of the house were dirtiest as they faced a busy main road and so not only were these windows  scrubbed, but they were also rinsed to ensure that all dirt was removed. high concentrations of dirt underneath the frames of the sash were also cleaned .At the back of the property  the windows were not quite so dirty being away from the road, but nevertheless still needed a good clean. The water-fed pole was used to clean one of these sash windows  but the other sash of the master bedroom could not be cleaned this way because a kitchen extension of the ground floor flat within the property restricted access to this window.Instead this window was cleaned by climbing out of the bedroom and cleaning it using traditional window cleaning methods  from  on top of the roof of kitchen extension. Care ws taken to minimize any risk in cleaning the window this way. After the final window was cleaned externally and inspection was made of cleaning to ensure that it met with the homeowners approval. After touching up a few areas a schedule was requested to have the windows cleaned every three months.

Glass panel roof window cleaners

Lean-to Window Cleaning

Today Spick and Span window cleaners were called out to Telegraph Hill SE14 to clean a three storey, five bedroom house with  a glass extension kitchen, and a  glass panel roof.

After showing Spick and Span around the property to make an assessment, the homeowner expressed doubt as to  whether  the glass panels in the roof could be cleaned or the windows above the glass kitchen extension could be accessed, but Spick and Span found ways to clean these to a satisfactory standard. Spick and Span window cleaners were able to clean the glass panel roof windows by working from a balcony and using an extension pole with an applicator pad attached, and then following the same action, but with a squeegee. The velux window in the loft conversion was also cleaned internally and externally.

The glass kitchen extension roof was cleaned externally, by leaning a ladder against a partition wall and vigorously scrubbing the panels from above .Afterwards the loosened dirt and excess water was directed away from the glazed panels by using a squeegee.The glass kitchen extension was cleaned internally using a step ladder, special care was taken to prevent dirty water from dripping onto the table and other furniture beneath,  this was accomplished by placing a waterproof sheet below.

All of the external windows at the front of the property were brushed clean using purified water run through a 30 ft. water-fed pole, special attention was given to areas  beneath the frames of the sash windows where dirt often collects.The front windows were cleaned on the insides using traditional window washing methods, this was especially helpful for the windows above the glass kitchen extension at the back of the property, which could not be reached with a water-fed pole or a ladder, instead they were cleaned  from inside the property, the sashes were positioned so that the windows could be cleaned from  a step ladder.

Some of the windows at the back of the property could not be opened , and so could not be cleaned on the outside from inside the property, as window locks prevented them from opening, therefore the water-fed pole was used to clean these outside.

All furniture was put back into their original positions after the work was completed and all tools used for the job were gathered before payment was collected .After asking the householder if she was happy with the results, she said that she was very satisfied .

Local window cleaner West Dulwich

Velux cleaning

Spick and Span window cleaners went down to West Dulwich today to clean the windows of a four bedroom semi-detached house in South Croxted Road in SE21.

The homeowner was in desperate need of a window cleaner who could clean all the outside glass of the property, but particularly the velux windows of the kitchen extension, which they required to be cleaned internally and externally .

The outside of the velux windows had a green scum that covered the glass severely restricting the daylight from into the kitchen, but also looking ugly from within.Internally the velux windows had thick grease covering them, as well as stickers.the velux were cleaned on the outside using a ladder and a stand-off.

After climbing up the ladder the green algae coating the velux glass was scrubbed with a window cleaners mop attached to an extension pole, and then rinsed with a squeegee. Difficult to reach windows above the kitchen extension were cleaned using purified water pumped through a water-fed pole.

Cleaning the velux on the inside of kitchen was done using a ladder and a three stage cleaning process, so as to prevent water spillages. First a lightly damp window cleaners mop was used, second a scraper was used to remove stickers from the windows , and third a micro-fibre cloth was used to buff out any remaining marks.

The client was amazed at how much better the velux looked after cleaning. After completing the velux windows the glass in the  bi-folding doors to the kitchen was cleaned using a mop and squeegee, and cement or glue spots on the glass were scraped off.

At the front of the property was a glass roof which covered the porch area this was cleaned using a water-fed pole. The front windows of the house were PVC framed and so they were cleaned along the with the glass. The top frame was cleaned first so as to remove the dirt and to prevent this from running down the window panes. following this the glass was cleaned in a side to side motion ensuring the the windows were thoroughly brushed and the rinsed down with pure water. Included in the clean was the fanlight above the front door and the glass panes inside the door itself, these were cleaned using traditional window cleaning methods. While cleaning the front of the property a neighbour also took the opportunity to enquire of Spick and Span’s window cleaning services offered in West Dulwich.

Local window cleaner in SE15

Spick and Span window cleaners went to Nunhead today to clean a split level flat in Nunhead SE15. The split level Flat had six sash windows and one bay window all of which required cleaning.

The landlord of the property required an end of tenancy window cleaning service to prepare the flat for the arrival of some new tenants, although finding a window cleaner local to the Se15 area had proven difficult.

Spick and Span were contacted after the landlord had visited our website, and was extremely impressed with the ease in which arrangements were made. When doing the work she commented on the lack of fuss brought to her as a result of the way that the work was carried out .

Access to front bay window was restricted by a tree,  although this was overcome by using a water-fed pole. The front sash window and bay window was cleaned with a water-fed pole although two sash windows above the bay were inaccessible by pole because of the lip of the bay window below, so these were cleaned from the inside of the property.

Around the back were  three sash windows two could be cleaned from outside with the water-fed pole one was above an extension and so had to be cleaned from inside the property.

The landlord had just had the carpets of the home cleaned and so shoe covers were placed over shoes to prevent mud from soiling the carpets and the sash windows were cleaned from inside the house. Once inside It was noticed what a difference the external window cleaning had made. Mud that once clung to the sash windows had been washed off with purified water the only marks that remained were those inside the property which the landlord was cleaning herself.

The windows on the top floor of the house that were above the bay windows were cleaned from off of a step ladder by lowering and raising the sash windows whilst leaning out and mopping the glass, loosening the dirt with soapy water and squeegeeing the glass dry. Any parts of the glass that were missed were wiped with a clean cloth. At the stairwell upstairs was the other window that couldn’t be cleaned from the outside this was cleaned by climbing out of the ladder onto a roof and cleaning with a mop , squeegee and cloth.

At the end of the job the window cleaner was commended for the job done and for the efficiency of the service and a definite promise was made to use Spick and Span window cleaning services again in the near future.

Shop window cleaner near East Dulwich

Shop Fascia Glass Cleaning

Today Spick and Span window cleaners washed the glass of a  canopy roof of a restaurant that is due to open in Peckham near East Dulwich on the 8th of August.The  new owners of the restaurant had contacted a number of  local window cleaners to the East Dulwich area, but found Spick and Span to be the nearest and most reasonably priced window cleaners and so decided accept our offer, after receiving the quote.

The glass panels of the shop roof  had evidence of not having been cleaned for many years as they had algae all over. they also had moss growing on top as well as branches .The debris and soiling that was on the glass was deeply impressed and so required thorough scrubbing.

The difficulty in the job, was the location of the shop which is on a busy thoroughfare, where numerous people pass by . This presented a hazard, but was overcome. Another difficulty with the job was the glass access.  Reaching the high up glass roof window panels and scrubbing them was also compounded by the extreme turn in the weather.Because of these reasons Spick and Span window cleaners decided to clean the windows using a three stage cleaning process, working at different times during the day, and using a variety of glass cleaning techniques. The dirt and algae on the windows was first of all aggravated from the panes by using a soapy  glass washing solution and micro-fibre window cleaning pad on a carbon fibre  pole. After loosening the dirt this was then rinsed off, the final process involved repeating step one, but this time squeegeeing off the residual dirty water.After communicating well with the owners during this period of time and working within their parameters, Spick and Span window cleaners were highly praised for their work and willingness to go the extra mile in helping them with the launch of the new business venture.

A request was made by the owners for an invoice to be made out in the company name, this was met, and advice was sought from Spick and Span window cleaners about the  maintenance of the shop windows in the future as well as the possibility of  Spick and Span providing window cleaning on a ongoing basis After the jobs completion  an invoice was sent electronically.

Residential property window cleaner

Today Spick and Span window cleaners cleaned all the outside windows of a three bedroom end of terrace residential property located in East Dulwich, SE22.It is one of many residential properties that we have cleaned , although this was for the first time.

At the front of the residential property  were two sash windows and a bay window which were cleaned. At the rear were two sashes a wooden framed french door a sliding glass bi-fold door and a large all-glass kitchen extension which housed two velux window,which all were thoroughly washed, as was a UPVC framed window above the extension .

The time spent cleaning the windows at this his in total was 2 hours. The reason was that the homeowners had not had the windows cleaned in sometime due to building work.

The job ran very smoothly, although there was one or two access problems, for instance at the front of the house there were some slippery tiles and sand on some of the paving slabs, which made the ladder placement a concern, but this was overcome by locating a safer place to rest the ladder. At the back of the property it was decided not to use a ladder at all because of the risk, due to the wooden decking, and so a safer alternative in the water-fed pole method of window cleaning was used.

Access to window above ,and the velux windows above the kitchen extension was not straightforward as the tile above the extension were very fragile, and so could not be stood upon. But these were accessed and cleaned safely by working from a wall which provided a sturdy and safe platform to clean the glass from.

The kitchen extension was of complete glass,but the difficulty in cleaning this proved to be the thistles that had been planted tightly to the glass, these need to be treated sympathetically so as to prevent damage whilst glass washing, but the effect of the clean afterward was that the glass dazzled with a high sheen as the sun reflected off of it.

As the fanlight of the french door was cleaned, a little water ran inside of top of the seal, which was quickly noticed by the window cleaner, who then took preventative measures and cleaned the residual water that had leaked inside the house. the bi-fold doors were cleaned with a window cleaners hand mop and squeegeed off and after this the job came to an end and Spick and Span window cleaners went of to clean the windows of another residential property in  East Dulwich

Dirty windows cleaned in SW2

Grime removal landlord window cleaning

The windows of the 4 bedroom terraced house that were cleaned in Brixton today had not been cleaned for thirteen years. The windows had hard baked mud covering the top two thirds of the pane, which had a very dismal effect on the outward appearance of the property, but also effected the daylight  from reaching within.

The double fronted period house had very high ceilings meaning that for window cleaning the first floor was quite high and dangerous to access from a ladder.

A safer alternative of window cleaning was used, as the client required internal and external cleaning to bring the property back to standard.

Spick and Span chose to begin  their cleaning on the top floor on the  inside of the property, and out of the way of the homeowner who was working at home in an office downstairs, this was done so as cause minimum disturbance.

After cleaning a bay window on the inside, the sash windows were opened and then cleaned on the outside after flower pots were carefully removed from the ledges.

Furniture was covered over to prevent water drips and other debris from causing a mess in the room.

Many of the windows after being lubricated with glass cleaner were then scraped to remove years of dirt that had built up on the glass.

Black streaks of loosened dirt  rolled down the panes of glass and collected on the cross beam of the sash these were wiped clean with a clean cloth as were the window frames.

There was one particular window in the hallway on the top floor of the house that was the main source of light that the homeowner especially wanted clean. It was reached using a two section ladder, and the paint marks on it were removed.

After and hour or so had passed the client travelled upstairs and became quite emotional over the transformation that window cleaning was already starting to bring to her home.

In the bathroom were transparent glass tiles that had splashes of cement on the outside these were scraped off and the glass was polished with a micro-fibre cloth.

Next it was time to move downstairs to clean the windows in the front room, a bay window at the front, and french door leading through to a courtyard at the rear, these were cleaned as were windows in a kitchen and office.

As we walked through the home afterwards it became noticeable, the difference in the feel that the property now had, the daylight now shone in, made even more noticeable by the beautiful rays of  sunshine that lit up the day.

Mansion house window cleaning in Knightsbridge

Mansion window cleaning Knightsbridge

Today Spick and Span window cleaners went to Knightsbridge and cleaned a large one bedroom flat in a mansion house in SW7, set over ground floor and basement levels. The windows were floor to ceiling type windows, and so required the use of long ladders.The client also required the cleaning of an adjacent guest flat, at basement level.Both properties were cleaned on the inside and out.Because of the clients demanding schedule, arrangements were made through the PA for Spick and Span to come and clean the windows  at a convenient time .

Spick and Span’s window cleaner was welcomed by the house keeper, after showing photo ID, and work began on the outside of the lounge area.The ladder was carefully placed on the decking area outside, after it had been negotiated carefully through the home.The windows were mainly dusty, due to the London Poplar tree seeds that had made contact with the glass , as the property is set next to lovely gardens .This dust was effectively removed, as was the the grime and other dirt, using a high performing window cleaning solution mixed with some water, a micro-fibre window cleaning pad, and window cleaning squeegee.Careful attention was given to paint spots and other blemishes on the windows, and these were successfully removed with a window cleaners scraper. After the casement style windows and french door was cleaned , they were polished using a lint free linen cloth and  residual marks in the corners of the frames were lifted out.

The  basement windows were large sized 2m by 2m panes, these were set around  a bathroom and linking into the bedroom was a french door, which were all  washed similar to the windows on the ground floor.Within the bathroom were six glass mirrors, which were very difficult for the house-keeper to clean, because of their height. Spick and Span window cleaners were able to reach and clean these without the use of a ladder, but with an extension pole.

The guest flat had sash windows with secondary glazing, and another french door.Before these were cleaned the window cleaner made sure to change his water and add some more cleaning chemical.After a brief inspection of the work, the tools were gathered, and the job came to it’s conclusion.

The house-keeper after mentioning how great a task it was to clean the windows of the flat set there in knightsbridge, hoped that we would come again to clean the windows in the future.

 

Window cleaning charges

Why the variance in window cleaning prices?

Window cleaners prices vary greatly depending on a number of factors, as some may have noticed.But in many cases you get exactly what you pay for.

If you are happy to pay the lowest rates then don’t be too surprised if the end results of the clean leave you wondering why you hadn’t attempted to do the work yourself.

Sloppy workmanship, including the use of dirty rags and water, and an altogether un-professional approach to window cleaning  are ‘the order of the day’ for all who seek simply to pay the lowest rates for window cleaning services.

Such an attitude really is to ‘shoot oneself in the foot’. Why? because, Just as there is a difference between standards of food quality in supermarkets, according to where you shop, there is also a huge  variety of standards, that you should be aware of when it comes to domestic window  cleaning, and choosing a window cleaner.

If you drive down a window cleaner in his price or seek to find a window cleaner who charges the lowest prices in Se22, SE23, and SE24, then be mindful that the way that they approach the work will often be in a negative frame of mind, and this will effect their eventual output.

Might it not be better to use window cleaners in SE22,SE23,SE24 who charge very reasonable rates and prices that are not too high or too low,but who charge the going rate, the average.

Recently Spick and Span window cleaners gave a quote to clean a four storey Neo-Georgian townhouse in Camberwell. The glass of the  house was to be cleaned inside and out as was the conservatory , the price quoted was £100. Later we were informed that within the same week a team of three window cleaners had knocked on the door of the same home in SE5 and provided a quote to clean windows for £50, quite a variance in price.

The householder, thought it over,and concluded that he would accept Spick and Span’s quote, although more. The reason given was that he felt that the price of the competitors was simply too little for the work that would have been  involved, He quite astutely,decided to go with his head .Needless to say he was very satisfied with the clean that  Spick and Span did for him, and he has become a regular customer.

The benefits of using professional window cleaners

Many who look for window cleaners fail to recognise that there are; ‘window cleaners’ and there are ‘professional window cleaners’ , it is important not to confuse the two. A ‘window cleaner’ can potentially be anyone, he or she could be a DIY enthusiast or a person that has a little spare time on their hands or someone who is need of a little spending money, he or she,in less common instances, may have the best of intentions, but because of a lack of experience or the correct equipment, will not be able to deliver the high standard of cleaning that your property deserves. On the other hand ‘professional window cleaners’ who may charge a little more, because of the overheads that they incur, such as tax, insurance,storage costs,and water rates,  the purchasing of professional window cleaning tools ,which when used properly, transform the entire feel of you home, and add to it’s overall beauty.

Professional window cleaners invest in training, are members of trade associations which keep them upto date of all the latest developments and news within the cleaning industry are fully vetted, helping you to feel more secure ,and to have peace of mind when they wonder around your home. Professional window cleaners also have websites, and commnicate effectively, making the window cleaning process one that is stree free.

Parking and travel times

Other factors that affect window cleaning charges are things like parking costs,and  the congestion charges, these considerations should be factored in by your window cleaner when he provides you with a quote.(You may be able to reduce the cost by providing a visitor’s parking permit).Also how quickly he can arrive at your property, and how quickly he can arrive at other jobs after he has finished with you.(You may be able to reduce the cost by arranging with neighbours nearby to have your windows cleaned the same time).

Glass types

The types of glass that you have within your property also makes a difference to how much a window cleaner charges. For instance some types of glass is notoriously time consuming to clean, such as Georgian glass(wooden beams that separate panes), Crittall glass( steel metal framed) or leaded glass (glass with leaded metal strips). Also if you are having the windows of your house cleaned internally, then windows with nicotine stains of thick grease or grime may take longer to clean as they require more vigorous effort and polishing, as will windows that have not been cleaned for over a year.

Make a wise decision

Many window cleaners pack up business after a short period of time because being unable to sustain themselves. Why not select a professional window cleaner who, may cahrge a little more, but one whom you can to know overtime and can rely on to  provide your home with this service

Window cleaning in the rain

Have you ever booked a window cleaner to come by and clean your windows and when the day finally arrived for him to come by, the forecast was rain all day? if so, did you feel like cancelling? Well here are some reasons to think again:

  1. Many window cleaners offer indoor window cleaning , which enables the cleaning of internal windows during heavier spells of rain.
  2. A great number of window cleaners today, use the purified water method of window cleaning, which can even be used to good effect in heavy rain.
  3. Light rain, contrary to common opinion, does not make windows dirty, but rather it is dust and other pollutants.
  4. Windows that are cleaned while it is raining will always look better than windows that have not been cleaned at all.

Today Spick and Span window cleaners went to Camberwell SE5 and cleaned a three bedroom Victorian terrace. Upon arriving the heavens darkened and rain began to pierce the sky. Despite the shower ,Spick and Span window cleaners continued with the work at the request of the Landlord of the property, who was preparing the home to receive some new tenant. First of all, the windows were cleaned at the front of the property, There were two bay windows and  a single sash window which were cleaned with a n abrasive window cleaning pad and squeegee, despite the rain that had fallen the results of the clean were very satisfactory.Moving round to the back of the home, there was a set of french doors three sash windows and a casement window in the bathroom which were cleaned. One of the sash windows had some thick grease on which was scraped off.After all the windows were washed on the outside Spick and Span windows cleaners repeated the cleaning process in all the rooms on the inside of the house taking care not to splash water on the carpets. After an inspection of the work on it’s completion it was noted despite the shower windows all looked very clean.

The rain continued to persist throughout the day, nevertheless another booking was confirmed close by in SE15, a property similar the the first although this time the request was that it be cleaned just on the exterior. the reason given for the cleaning was that the property was to be viewed by an estate agent. The front bay window had some water marks which were removed by limescale remover before being washed and rinsed.

Window cleaning without making a mess

If you have requested a domestic window cleaner to come and carry out window cleaning services for you internally, then the last thing that you want is a window cleaner to make more mess than before he had started, by splashing water from a bucket on your carpet or walls.That is why it is often best to find a recommended window cleaner, one that you can trust.Spick and Span are recommended window cleaners in  East Dulwich and other areas, where you can read genuine comments of others,  regarding the consideration that is shown around the clients home, in local community forums.

Spick and Span are professional window cleaners who, when in the course of carrying  out internal or external window washing,do so with great care.This they do, by carrying buckets and other hand tools that have the capacity of leaking water, with care through your home.

The water that we use when window cleaning a home is regularly changed, so as to prevent dirt build up, which if coming in contact with window frames or panels or walls within the home can leave muddy streaks.

Spick and Span window cleaners have the practice of placing any buckets that they use within the home on cardboard or waterproof sheets, which prevent soiled buckets from leaving marks on flooring.

To prevent the traipsing of mud through the property when cleaning internal glass, Spick and Span wear either plastic shoe covers or remove footwear altogether.

When cleaning the window panes Spick and Span window cleaners first of all rinse the mop that they use to release excess water, using just the amount required and at the same time prevent water draining down the window onto the surface below, by placing a hand mop which soaks up water after the squeegee is applied.

So clean and effective are our domestic window cleaning work practices that we often clean the  offices and studies of our clients homes without the need to remove papers and documents, which if ever got wet would result in obvious problems.

Any wood chippings or flakes of paint that are loosened through cleaning are also vacuumed, with the householders permission.

When cleaning external windows of the property care is taken in and around flower beds, so as to prevent the destruction of flowers and plants when window cleaning outside the home.

It is always the aim of Spick and Span window cleaners to treat the home-owners property and surroundings with the respect deserved and to ensure that all window cleaning services performed are done without making a mess.

Solar energy panels in East Dulwich

Solar Panels in SE23 (2)

As you look around the landscape of East Dulwich it is noticeable that a number of properties in the area have on top of their roofs solar energy panels to harness the energy from the sun and to provide clean forms of energy.

Whilst good for the environment, solar panels prove a problem for home-lovers as within short amounts of  time they become sullied and dirty damaging the appearance of the homes that they dwell on .Due to the grime and high pollution levels and dust within the city, solar panels provide a big target for dirt of all sorts to lock onto, but not only are they  hazardous to clean, working  off of a ladder, because of their precarious positions, but they also require very thorough and intense scrubbing, which is both time and labour intensive.

Spick and Span window cleaners, while primarily working as window cleaners are able to reach high into the air with their window cleaning equipment, which is equally effective on solar energy panels. The window cleaners use special abrasive brushes on the end of carbon fibre extension poles that can reach solar panels on roofs , giving them the clean that they need so as to maximise their efficiency in converting the suns rays into energy.

Trustworthy window cleaner SE15

Today Spick and Span window cleaners carried out the first phase of  window cleaning in a four storey house in the Camberwell side of Peckham.The home-owners  have been living in the property for six years, but had not found a suitable window cleaner during that time.

When asked why they had chosen to use Spick and Span’s services the reason given was that they had done some thorough research on the web, and read client reviews, which no doubt made them more comfortable in their selection.

On arrival to the job, the window cleaner was shown around the property, but before walking around the home he put over-shoe covers on, which impressed the home -owner, who explained that in past he had a bad experience  with less considerate tradesmen who had traipsed mud through the property, he also seemed impressed, when after the first phase of cleaning was completed, the window cleaner vacuumed up the dried paint/wood chippings that had stripped off of the weather beaten sash windows.

The work done consisted of external and internal glass cleaning, which had to be done from inside the property due to the height of the building, and also building works that were being carried out on the lower ground floor. Some of the sash windows were difficult to open, which meant that some windows had to be cleaned from on top of ledges or flat roofs, with the use of an extension pole, but in the most part the method of cleaning was using a step ladder inside the house and leaning carefully outside the window. In addition to the large pane sash window that were cleaned there was also a french door that was cleaned on the ground floor . The bay window on the ground at the front of the property was first of all scrubbed with a window cleaning detergent and afterwards scraped to remove paint spots from the glass.

During the cleaning process the home-owner regularly checked the how the work was progressing and he was visibly astonished with the difference that window cleaning had made to his property.

Toward the end of the cleaning, arrangements were made to carry out the second phase of window cleaning, which will be the lower ground section of the property,inaccessible at the time due to gardening works .The client also asked about arranging a regular cleaning schedule, as he said that the windows should have been cleaned in the property long ago.

Domestic window cleaning in SE22

Spick and Span window cleaners did a domestic window cleaning job in East Dulwich SE22 today after being contacted by email.The cleaning requirements were that two sash bay windows with multi-paned glass and two casement windows be washed externally and that some paint marks be scraped from the glass.After arriving a brief assessment was made about the best way to get to the windows as a fence outside the property restricted the safe placement of the ladder , therefore it was decided that to minimize the  risk  the windows would be cleaned from inside the flat. In preparation for the work, handles had to be unscrewed from the double glazed reproduction sash windows so that they could easily slide open and allow cleaning from the inside. To ensure that the windows were cleaned to the clients satisfaction a four stage cleaning process was employed. First a damp cloth was used to loosen the dirt, second a glass scraper lifted off paint splashes, third a micro-fibre cloth picked up the loosened remains and finally a linen cloth was used to  polish the glass and remove streaks.This same procedure was used on the other windows within the property. Within a short while the property was again looking neat and attractive with the outside glass dirt and paint free, the only marks that remained on the windows were those  on the inside of the property.

How best can marks on the inside of a window be removed?

Spick and Span window cleaners do provide an internal as well as an external window cleaning service, but if your budget only stretches as far as to have just your outside windows cleaned the answer to the above question may be of interest to you.

Many feel that the best way to clean the windows inside the home is with vinegar and newspaper or to use a popular window cleaning spray from a supermarket, but it has often been observed that these methods do not always bring the desired results.

The first thing you must remember if you are going to clean your windows internally yourself  is  your safety, make sure that whatever you stand on to reach the tops of your windows is sturdy.

To get consistent results with your cleaning use micro-fibre cloths, these can be purchased now in most high streets. lightly soak one of the micro-fibre cloths in warm water and rinse dry. Apply the cloth to the glazed pane, rubbing in either a circular motion or from side to side, being careful to move into the corners, then follow the same motion with a dry micro- fibre cloth. The result should be sparking glass that is streak free.

How to remove condensation from windows

Condensation in window pane Camberwell

Spick & Span window cleaners are often asked by homeowners how to solve the problem of condensation that builds up on windows, and so we thought that we would write a brief article on the subject.

If you ever take a cold can of drink out of the fridge and put it on the sideboard you will notice how in a short-while water droplets form and begin dripping down the tin. What has happened? Warm air, or humidity within the air of your room when coming in contact with the cool can drops in temperature and vaporizes. The same is true when warmer air hits your window panes.

How can this be prevented? One way is to ensure that there is sufficient ventolation in the room itself, to achieve this keep the window adjar if at all possible and regularly open the windows, alternatively you can purchase a de-humidifier.When the seal to a window becomes loose and condensation gets in between the sheets of glass, you may be able to solve the problem by using a hairdryer, if not replace the sheets of glass, but ensure that , when you do , you regularly follow the steps mentioned above to prevent this occurring again.

Because this method of cleaning was employed to time to clean the windows was greatly reduced and an additional benefit was that the many Upvc window frames could be cleaned at no added cost to the client.

In some areas window had to be cleaned more than once to ensure that the detergent that was use by the previous window cleaner had been completely rinsed away from the rubber seals within the double glazed glass, which leaves spots when dry when using purified water cleaning.

The client on a couple of occasions came out to inspect what was taking place, as this cleaning method had never been seen by her before, but she was very impressed with the health and safety factor, with the window cleaner having both feet on the ground at all times as she expressed that ladders were dangerous.

After the window cleaner had completed the work at this location in Sydenham Hill he asked the client to inspect the work to make sure that she was entirely satisfied with the window cleaning. This is a comment that she later placed on the East Dulwich Forum:

“Mark  of Spick & Span window cleaning services  is the best cleaner I have ever had – routinely cleaning the frames as well as windows. The windows are sparkling, plus he’s a charming and helpful worker. Highly recommended!”

The young family who had just recently moved into the period property in Camberwell  SE5 were very desperate for a window cleaner, and for all the windows of the house be cleaned internally and externally. The windows of their new home had been badly neglected  by the previous occupants, who rarely if ever had their windows cleaned, and so they required professional window cleaners to come down to the house in Camberwell to give them a very thorough and rigorous cleaning.

The homeowners had had recent renovation and building work  carried out at the property and because of this there was a lot of thick dust on the windows, and also paint marks which needed scraping off, which was done without damaging the glass.The windows were black and restricted needed light from entering inside the home, Spick & Span attended to this by using a strong cleaning detergent window cleaning scrubber and squeegee .

The total amount of time spent at the job was about three hours. After completion of the work the homeowner said  “It’s so nice to be able to see through the windows again!”

SW2 window cleaning in Brixton Hill

Today Spick & Span window cleaners went down to Brixton Hill, to what is a very busy thoroughfare of London, to help freshen up the internal and external appearance of a two bedroom Art- Deco flat, by cleaning the properties windows on both the inside and the outside.

Because this properties was located on such a busy thoroughfare  on a major artery of London the windows of the home in this SW2 postal area of Brixton needed rigorous window cleaning.The windows of this two bedroom Art-Deco flat had been badly neglected over the years and were in a very poor and dirty condition.Thousands of vehicles including buses travel up this busy street in Brixton, which no doubt accounts for why there was thick dust and soot laced over the glass and frames of the windows , making the outlook of the property misty in the extreme.The occupant of the home had never managed in the many years that she lived in the property to clean the windows herself or find window cleaners local to her area, which was why the windows were in such a poor and neglected state. She came across Spick & Span window cleaners after being referred by a local community forum and she was delighted  to learn that Spick & Span window cleaners are professional window cleaners local to Brixton,  being based just a 10 minute drive or so from her home.

Within a short time of being at the property the homeowner commented on  the efficiency and professionalism in which Spick & Span attended to the window cleaning. All the windows of the property were cleaned internally and externally as was a communal window.

Span and Span cleaned the windows with a strong window cleaning solution added to water, a window cleaning pad and squeegee and used a scrim to detail the windows making sure that no water marks were left. Within the front room the two windows there also had secondary glazing panes, which also needed cleaning. All windows were cleaned from inside the flat as there were very busy shops below making window cleaning from a ladder both impractical and dangerous from a health and safety standpoint.Although the cleaning of this property required very rigorous and thorough cleaning the diligent efforts of the window cleaners were rewarded when the  happy resident said at the conclusion of a later conversation with staff members:  “My windows look lovely, I am fully appreciating all the autumn colours through them!”

Health and clean windows – is there a link?

It is common knowledge that sunlight effects our mood. SAD syndrome, and the like, have become familiar household terms to many . In lands where there is regular sunshine people tend to be happier, whereas in lands that have less daylight and sunshine, depression runs high, even suicide.

Could this well researched and now scientifically proven fact be of any interest to window cleaners and homeowners ?Well up until recently, I thought very little about the subject until I received and email from a very satisfied client who said “that it was great to live with clean windows!” I began to think about this statement  and then to think of the reactions of many of my clients, who often exclaim how nice it is to be able to see outside again and to enjoy the view into the world outside.

There is no doubt that dirt on windows does restrict nautral light from entering into a prperty and that when a window is dirty there is an increase of shadows. This leaves the occupant of the home regularly in an environment that is light deprived and dull .Clean translucent glass, that window cleaning causes maximizes the suns rays that enter the living space enhancing the properties feel and ambience.

According to a study by researchers at the University of Michigan, U.S.A., employees with a window view perform better. Contrary to popular belief, having a view does not necessarily encourage daydreaming. The magazine Business Week reports that a 1,200-person survey revealed that “workers with views of the outside world show more enthusiasm for their jobs, less frustration, more patience, better concentration, and fewer physical ailments.” In contrast, workers in windowless cubicles are likely to be “less imaginative and more irritable” and have more problems with concentration.

Windows that are dirty could negate the potential benefits that windows serve increasing enthusiasm and  a well-being.

If the above hypothesis is true then  window cleaners are not merely “window cleaners” but “Mood Doctors” bringing a sense of well-being and brightening up the lives of the clients they serve, changing outlooks literally, and metaphysically.

There is no denying the fact that when a person has their windows cleaned they almost always comment on the immediate difference they notice.

Could it be that there is a link between clean windows and good health?

Reduce the risk in using ladders

Window Cleaning off ladder Camberwell

It’s likely that this week someone in Britain will die from an accident with a ladder, and more than a hundred will be injured. Most of these accidents occur during household maintenance and DIY, by following some advice many of these risks can be cut down or even avoided. Here are a few examples.

Before you start you should ask yourself:

Am I up to the task?

If you are in any doubt at all it is better to seek professional help.

Is the ladder up to the task?

It may be that for the type of work that you are considering that scaffolding or other access equipment will be better suited to the task at hand.

To avoid many common accidents make sure that you :

1. Get the correct ladder.

It is important that the ladder that you use is the right height for the job If the ladder is too short you will have to overstretch, if too long then you might have to put it at a dangerous angle. .The ladder that you use should meet the required British standards: BS 2037 (Aluminium) BS 1129 (Wood). All ladders have a load capacity.Make sure that your weight plus that of the tools does not exceed the limit of the ladder you are to use.

2. Inspect your ladder carefully.

Do not use a ladder that is rickety or damaged, if you notice that this is the case do not attempt to repair it have it destroyed.Wooden ladders contract in the cold and expand in the heat, so check that the rungs are still firmly riveted, and have not rotten, also look out for any cracks. Check the screws that fasten the rungs on metal ladders as well as the rungs themselves to see that they are fastened and have not been damaged by rust. Carry out any repair work and make replacements as soon as they are noticed. Before each use of the ladders remove dirt that may have accumulated in the l grooves.

3. Position the ladder correctly.

Place your ladder on a level, solid surface.The ladder should never lean sideways but should be placed at an angle of 75 degrees from the floor.

4. Provide support at the top and at the base.

Be careful where you put the top of the ladder. Make sure that the top surface against which the ladder rests is stable and nonslip. Never rest the ladder on glass or plastic such as guttering. When possible, tie it securely to a fixture, with the top rising about 1m above the top point of the landing.Take particular care that when you initially climb the ladder, you tie it at the top.If the ground slopes away from the building, place something heavy like a sand bag at the base of the ladder or tie a lower to a fixture. If the ground is uneven but solid, use a wedge to get a level base. Provide wooden board to make a firm base if the ground is soft or of loose material.If you use a stepladder make sure that all four steps are firmly on the ground.

5. Check your shoes.

Flat shoe are appropriate footwear for climbing ladders. Before you climb make sure that the sole of your shoes are dry. Remove anything like mud that might make you slip.

6. Carry things carefully.

If possible carry tools in a holder that is attached to a belt so as to leave hands free for climbing.Be deliberate and methodical, and do not rush. Remember that even a small screw driver can cause injury when dropped from height.

7. Check your state of health.

Do not climb if you are on medication, feel sick or nauseated or if you suffer from vertigo.

8. Be considerate of others.

If you are working in a public place, make the ladder easily visible, and if you have to move a ladder around a corner, be aware that others will not be expecting this. Shout a friendly warning, and check to see if the way is clear.If you have to go away and you have been unable to tie the ladder securely, get someone to stand guard, or lay the ladder down safely until you return.

9. Climb safely.

Always face the ladder when ascending or descending. When on the ladder avoid overreaching by making sure that your belt buckle (navel) stays within the stiles and keep both feet on the same rungs throughout the task.Always have three points of contact with the ladder two feet one hand.Never climb a ladder in strong winds. Do not stand or sit on the top three rungs of  ladder.

10. Do not overstretch.

When you extend your arms and legs while working up high, you may make the ladder unstable. Avoid dangerous overreaching. Move the ladder often to keep it close to your work.

 

 

Cleaning tips

One of the keys to having a clean home is to educate each individual within the home of the need to play their  part. This includes young children. Teach your children the value of playing their part in  maintaining a clean home by making their beds, and helping in other household tasks, according to their age. You will be surprised by how much young children enjoy helping in cleaning the home, and this also has health benefits for them.

 Be a shrewd consumer

When purchasing items, have in mind the cleaning time  that will be required for each item.While brass or other metallic  items seem attractive as home furnishings, remember that they are dust magnets, and over a course of years they require hours of dusting. So be careful not to be lured by the beauty of an objects appearance, try to think of the time it would take to clean, and weigh up whether you are prepared  for such an investment.When it comes to  the décor of your home  think carefully about  the  material you select to cover your walls. For instance  using semigloss to  paint walls can be a good idea, particulary if you have young children  because this can be washed very easily and still looks nice.You can rapidly reduce the investment of time in cleaning floors by remembering that smooth linoleum or wooden floors are easier to clean than a carpet. But beware of floors that require constant waxing as this can consume time.Choose the colours  of your furnishings wisely, and remember: dark upholstery shows up the dust,and  light colours are easily soiled, so look for  in-between colours, and check the fabrics  washability, try to  get something that will be easy to clean,and  will hold up to normal wear for longer.

Minimize clutter

Analyze your home to see what you could eliminate and remove items that are infrequently used. You may have to be tough with yourself on this one . If this is difficult for you to do, apply the six month test; place the infrequently used item in a box for six months and if within those six months you do not use the item  you can rest assured that it  isn’t needed. Get rid of it at once!If your house is large, close off a section, perhaps covering the furniture with old sheets and open it only when you have company or when it is otherwise needed. This will save you much valuable time.

Window cleaning on the ninth floor in SE10

Today Spick & Span went down to the millennium village in Greenwich SE10., and cleaned the windows of a Luxurious 9th floor Penthouse flat. The Penthouse, that was high-up on the 9th floor of this smart apartment block. consisted of  an office space as well as two bedrooms. a kitchen,and balcony area.

The owner of this property had had many problems with the window cleaning of this property. He had attempted to clean the windows himself without success, and had been refused by a number of professional window cleaning companies in the area .Eventually the homeowner came across Spick & Span window cleaners through the internet.

This proved to be one of the most complex window cleaning jobs that Spick & Span have ever encountered.The  reason for this is that the ceilings of this building were very high, and a long ladder could not be transported in the lift.The windows within the main living and office area were floor-to ceiling glazed panels,approximately 14ft. , with a mezzanine floor. The high windows had  wooden intersections separating many of the panes at the top of the room making cleaning very awkward. These very tall windows had to be cleaned on the outside also. But the very narrow balcony outside the room had a metal grated floor, which meant that a water-fed pole could not used, because water would leak through the grating  to the apartments below. The only method that could used to clean the windows of this building in Greenwich was traditional window cleaning methods. Clearly  the buildings architect had not taken into the consideration some of the difficulties that would be encountered in cleaning these windows. By employing a 3.5m. telescopic window cleaning pole Spick & Span were able to clean the windows to a good standard.

The compensation that Spick & Span received for this extremely difficult window cleaning Job in Greenwich was the delight and relief it brought to the resident of this apartment to and the satisfaction he showed in having clean windows ,also from this height the view of the river Thames was simply breath-taking! The boats that sailed along it looked the size of match boxes. In the nearby distance the Canary Wharf tower could be seen as could the stadia that are being prepared for the Olympic games which are to be held in London in 2012.This reminds us of why being a window cleaner in south east London, although can     be a challenge at times can also be so much fun!
