Ever wondered about what Window Cleaning Technicians do in a day?
Published: January 25th, 2018
A day in a life of a professional window cleaner is hard to describe in one post; each day is different. There are so many variables that can make one day extremely different from the next. We’ve tried our best to summarize a typical day!
Our typical day actually starts at the beginning of every week where we de-brief and get ready for the week. We map out our destinations and different properties that we will be serving within the week. We could be in North Austin one day and in Johnson City the next! It gives us the opportunity to explore Austin and the surrounding areas and we end up stumbling on the most obscure but beautiful places imaginable! There are some amazing and unique properties and areas in Austin that you would never see otherwise!
Once we arrive at the scheduled property, we like to make sure we check out our work area before starting on a clean, making sure that we work logically depending on the scope of the job. For example, we always assess the safety of the job at hand. We are fully insured and trained to tackle majority of projects and scopes which, as mentioned in The Benefits of having your Windows professionally cleaned is a great reason to hire us to meet your cleaning needs! It is so much safer for everyone!
We always like to follow-up with our customers once we are done! We complete a walk-through and make sure that we have 100% satisfaction from our customers! This is the most important part for us as it also gives us the opportunity for our work to be admired! It’s a great feeling!
Also, the flexibility of our work schedule as well as meeting a range of different people makes each day exciting for us!

Three reasons to have your windows professionally cleaned.
Published: September 9th, 2017.
There are many factors to consider when professionally cleaning your windows.
The question as to whether to get your professional window cleaning depends on many things. For example, how dirty are your windows? How many windows do you have? Do you have screens? Do you have windows with tiny divided panes or great towering panes of glass that even you can’t reach on your own ladder? Do you have the right equipment or are you running to your nearest supplies store to clear out the window cleaning aisle?
It is possible to do it yourself, but it is much safer and easier to hire a professional window cleaning company. As mentioned in our How to clean your windows (and what not to do!) blog, technique is key. Our Window Techs are trained to make sure they clean your windows effectively, leaving no stains and your windows looking shiny.
We are proud to state that we have been established since 2012. That includes being fully insured, which means no liability for you if anything was to happen at your home. This is the mark for any great window cleaning company so when in the market for hiring a Tech don’t be afraid to ask for a copy of their insurance if you are unsure. Better safe than sorry! We strive on maintain our professional attributes as mentioned here in Expertise’s, “17 Best Austin Window Washing Companies 2017”.
Lastly, having your windows professionally cleaned leaves them looking better for longer! As a result, your curb appeal is heightened greatly and you don’t have to worry about cleaning your windows regularly. We advise our customers to have their windows cleaned 1-2 times a year. Ask your Window Tech if there are any pre-payment deals or discounts if you decide to clean your windows regularly.

How to clean and wash your windows (and what not to do!)
Published: August 15th, 2017.
Have you tried to look out your windows recently and realized you couldn’t see through them?
That once sunny view has disappeared in a cloud of stains and smearing? Has summer vacation meant an increase in those grubby hand prints? Has the dog developed an interest in the cat opposite the street and slobbered everywhere?
Everyday dirt build-up and changes of season as well as the weather elements all contribute to dirtier windows which overtime becomes more and more noticeable. Follow these three steps to ensure a professional looking window clean and banish all of those marks away! Say hello to sparkling and stain free windows.
Make sure your prep the area your working in. For example, if your windows have screens, remove these all first to make cleaning all the windows hassle free. You can clean the screens first (lightly brushing them or hosing them done to that ensure no damage is done) and while these are drying, clean your windows so the screens have enough time to dry before putting them back on. Wipe off any loose dirt from frames, sills and glass before starting the actual clean.
2) Using the right product!
There are many cleaners and concoctions out on the market. Here at Weird Window Cleaning we swear by our secret formula: dish soap and water! Yes, you’ve read that right. If your windows aren’t covered in hard, stained on debris, then there’s no need to add anything corrosive or strong. We swear by this method and it has proven to leave your windows looking great for longer. Plus, we’re doing our environmental due-diligence by keeping green and eco-friendly! (Extra tip: Do not use glass cleaner. Not only is this expensive as you would probably work your way through several bottles to clean your home, but it just ends up smearing the already stained windows.)
3) Technique is key
Part of great window cleaning is not just the product but the technique, that our Window Techs swear by. Using a squeegee like this one is probably your best bet. Use a sideways motion while working down the glass rather than up and down to ensure that all the residue is wiped away successfully. Use a rag like this to touch up on the corners or for smaller panes you can’t use your squeegee on.
