How to Eliminate Pesky Streaking for Crystal Clear Windows

by Apr 24,2017

Dirt and grime on the outside of a building can often be overlooked, but streaks on a window are immediately noticeable. Having clean windows are important for business, as they are often the first glimpse customers have into your company and the way you conduct business. The problem is that window streaks are hard to avoid.

Whether they are caused by inefficient cleaning, poor technique or simply being sloppy, windows with streaks are a common problem.

What Causes Window Streaking?

Before we tell you how to get rid of your window streaks, it is helpful to understand what causes them in the first place. Here are the top two causes of window streaking.

    1. The Cleaner.- All window cleaning solutions are created equal? False. Some multi-purpose cleaners claim to be streak-free but fail to deliver. A big problem is the evaporation rate. If you’re cleaning your windows on a warm sunny day, the liquid part of the solution evaporates quickly and leaves behind a residue that appears as streaks. On the other hand, if you don’t entirely remove the liquid you can also be left with a streaky window. Take your time when you are cleaning your windows as being in a hurry is a sure-fire way of creating streaks.

 

  1. The Towel.- The type of cloth or towel used is also a factor. Towels that are not as absorbent spread dirt and moisture instead of removing them, leaving behind those ugly streaks. Other towels may shed, leaving you with streaks of dust, debris and lint. A towel that has been previously used for other purposes may have been contaminated with other cleaners. The oils and detergents in household cleaners can remain on towels even after they have been washed, making them useless for window cleaning.

How to Get Rid of Streaks on Your Windows

Now that you know what causes streaks, you can formulate the best plan to get rid of them. The proper way to remove window streaks or marks is to do another cleaning.

Here are a few tips to help you remove streaks.

Step 1. Go over the window using a dry dust-free microfiber cloth. Often streaks will vanish with a little elbow grease.

Step 2. If step 1 doesn’t work for you, it will be necessary to use a cleaning solution. We recommend a solution of dawn dish soap or another solution such as ecover.

Step 3. Apply the solution to a small area starting at the bottom of the window working upward, to avoid dripping. Be sure to work fast but clean thoroughly and with enough force that no residue is left behind. It is often helpful to use specialized window cleaning equipment like a squeegee.

Step 4. Go back and dry the edges of the window from the top down with a new or clean dust-free cloth.

When to Call a Professional

Window cleaning can be a thankless job; meaning that when it is done right, no one notices, but when it is done wrong or haphazardly, those unsightly streaks become visible to everyone. Plus, your glass windows represent a significant financial investment and damage to glass is inherent when you don’t use the right tools and equipment.

Often the windows in commercial buildings have coatings or other glass features that make streak-free cleaning nearly impossible for untrained staff. A professional window cleaner can handle these problem areas and more.

Some areas that require professional attention are:

  • High and hard to reach windows
  • Skylight cleaning
  • Coated or tinted glass cleaning
  • Interior and exterior cleaning
  • Etched or decorative glass cleaning
  • Stained glass window cleaning
  • Crystal cleaning
  • New construction or remodel clean-up
  • Emergency cleaning

Finally, when safety is a concern, you want a professional on the job. Be sure to choose a company who is licensed and whose employees are bonded.

Zero Downtime Means Increased Productivity for Your Business

Don’t have the luxury of closing your business to have your windows cleaned? No worries, a professional team can work around your customers and staff to provide you with worry-free, zero downtime commercial window cleaning service.

As a business, your windows are the portal through which the outside world views you. If you want to be certain your windows are crystal clear, if you have a specialized glass, or difficult to reach areas it is critical that you let a professional handle the job.

Deicing roof and gutter. Prompt, knowledgeable and professional service. Honestly discussed the extent of service necessary which was less than I had anticipated. Saved me some money. Ice is gone, gutter and downspout open and roof is drained and dry.

Ultimate Advantage has cleaned our house exterior for years. Todd (owner of Ultimate Advantage) entrusted Clean and Clear to take over his accounts. Todd's vote of confidence is well founded in Clean and Clear.Travis, Clean and Clear Team Supervisor, was very thorough, was professional and courteous. DeShawn, Office Coordinator, was very courteous on the phone and helped with an invoice correction.I am looking forward to a long business relationship with Clean and Clear and the services they provide. Job well done!!

WE USED THEM TO INSTALL CHRISTMAS LIGHTS. i WAS LATE TO THE GAME IN CALLING THEM AND THE WINTER WEATHER WAS ALREADY UPON US BUT THEY WERE VERY ACCMMODATING. Kept clear communication going. Always responded quickly to my emails or texts. After Isaiah hung them in the daytime, he came back at night to make sure all bulbs worked! He did replace a couple of lights that were out. I will definitely use again and refer to anyone that asks. I see they do window cleaning too and will reach out in the spring for that.

We had another company tell us they put us on the schedule over and over to do our Christmas lights and then backed out, So we contacted Clean and Clear. They got back to me right away, said they could come out and do our Christmas lights without a couple of days. Sure enough, they got us on the schedule and the communication was great the entire time. Quote was great and they were extremely professional and so friendly, we had Jordan and Liam out and they were great!We will only be using them moving forward! We have had a lot of compliments on our house since!!

A day late is the only negative. But the gentleman who cleaned my gutters was ok with scooping out the gutters and then offered to go back up on the roof to blow out the down spouts. It was cold and windy today and with rain predicted for the next few days, I was relieved to have clear gutters.

I arranged for Christmas lights to be installed at my home. The quote and early interactions were great. Unfortunately, the communication about scheduling was poor. I was told about two tentative planned dates, each time following up when the date had past and I had heard nothing from the company. Today the technician failed to show for our confirmed appointment. Again, no communication that they would be unable to come. I'm so disappointed in the customer service, better communication and follow-up are needed, would not recommend.

Don’t bypass the reviews. Truly, the integrity of this company is very disappointing. Good communication and customer service display but it’s not what it seems. I have been charged for services that had not been done.My service lasted 8-10 min top and was told the job had been done. They had no proof of the gutter cleaning… for both home and two car garage & could not show proof of what it looked like prior to.That’s the trick, make it sound and look good… Be aware. I could have went with a more trustworthy company and chose to give these guys a try.Give your money to someone who actually cares. These guys don’t!

Clean and clear did an absolute excellent job. They jumped in when another company “walked on the job“ because we have storm windows. They were prompt, wonderful communication, very fair pricing and KJ, the technician, was extremely nice, polite, efficient and did a wonderful job. He even went the extra mile to help clean two windows that had paint residue as best he could. I would absolutely hire them again and will only use them in the future. They are a company that clearly cares about customer service from start to end.
They came and cleaned my moms windows for Mothers Day! They were on time and professional. the windows were immaculate. Thanks Clean and Clear!

Sills and screens were not cleaned. I would have mentioned it to your tech before he left, but my assumption was he did it. Contacted the service manager and he was less then helpful. His response was basically the service removes 80-90% of debris and they could come back if I want a deeper clean. I explained many times that it wasn't done at all.

They don’t clean off water spots. Don’t even offer the “extra” service to clean windows. Didn’t get ANY corners clean, still black dirt. one window missed a cleaning completely. Although….they are fast!

They make it so easy to schedule my gutter cleaning every fall by sending a reminder and coming over within a day of my requesting service. The gutters and site are clean and look great and the tech was courteous and thorough. First rate service.
Extremely flexible with our changing schedule, on-time arrival, friendly staff and excellent job on our very old, never been cleaned windows at a fair price! The estimate over the phone stood when they did their pre-work walkthrough. I would highly recommend!

Got to love a service company that calls to see if they can show up early, works efficiently and leaves your windows looking crystal clear! Great work - we’ll be using them regularly!

Overall happy with the service, windows are great but I had my gutters cleaned and they left my house a mess - didn't clean up the residue from the gutters and it's all over the siding and just looks sloppy as well as the ground and window sills that were under the gutters - not super happy about that and the price seems high compared to other companies we've worked with. Again - windows great but not going to use for other services.

I feel like this company sets you up for disappointment when working with any other company. We’ve used them several times. We always get very clear concise answers to questions, clear pricing and communication is perfect. We’ve had multiple people come out to work in the gutters and every one of them was polite, respectful of the property and did their job quickly and efficiently. We will absolutely be using them in the future.

Henry and Joe did a great job hanging holiday lights on our home. Even answered questions about soffit and gutter cleaning. Looks great. Zack promptly came out to replace a burnt out bulb when one went out.

We’ve had clean and clear out several times for our window cleaning needs, and they have always been outstanding to work with. The crews are so friendly and nice, and our windows look great when they are finished.

This year, we decided to use them for our exterior Christmas Lighting needs. Wow... they did such a great job!! Their customer service is wonderful, they are quick to put you on their schedules, and because we were new to hiring a company to hang our lights, they provided us with several options, quotes, and ultimately listened to what we wanted and put their expertise to work. They had easily an 8 hour day, and worked so hard to the very end to ensure we were satisfied. They honestly did such a great job 👏. It far exceeded our expectations!! We love how our home turned out!!

I would highly recommend using Clean and Clear. I know we will continue to use them for years to come!!

They were here on a snowy day and worked very hard getting the Candy Cane Christmas Light look I wanted. The house looks amazing. I am so excited to have lights on the highest peaks of our house. We have never had that before!

Updated! The removal process of the lights was effortless. I didn’t even know they were here until the job was complete! I appreciate how quiet they were due to it being naptime and I have a home childcare. Very pleased and will use them again!

I have used this company to clean my gutters last year and they were great! I had them come not long ago to clean my siding and deck. The only thing I wish they would have done was quick rinse the patio of the paint chips. Not a big deal since ,u kids and dogs love getting squirted with the hose. I am definitely using them again.

The gentlemen from Clean and Clear did a great job of cleaning our windows. I've had lots of different companies clean my windows in the past and none of them was as professional and did as good of a job removing the hard water spots. I highly recommend this business.

5-stars here! Jim was able to provide me with a quote, which I found to be reasonable and ended up scheduling gutter maintenance in just a few minutes. The gentleman that showed up this morning (less than 24 hours after I inquired) was kind, professional and informative. I would absolutely use Clean and Clear again.

Would give 0 stars if we could. Charged more than our estimate. Lifted up our mesh leaf gutter guards to clear the gutters and then didn’t put them back down beneath the shingle. When we called back to request they come and put them back under the shingle, they came out and said “there’s no way we would’ve lifted the gutter guards, so we’re not going to fix it”. When I asked to speak to the owner, he simply said “we usually instruct our guys not to lift the guards, but I can’t confirm with the worker who did your gutters because we fired him”. He then asked for photos to prove the guards were under the shingles when they were installed, which of course we don’t have because we can’t get up to our roof (hence why we’re paying YOU to clean them!). So now we’ll be hiring another company to come out and fix the problem.

No one arrived during the appointment window of 10am-Noon today.
I called the office at 12:15pm to find out. The person on the phone said someone would get back to me soon.
No phone call so I called again at 1:25pm. On hold for five minutes.
Was told Liam would call me back, but I just told the person on the phone to cancel my appointment.

1:30pm: received a call from Clean & Clear that my appointment was never booked despite receiving a confirmation email.
This info would have been HELPFUL when I called at 12:15.
Offered to come on Monday...nope.😾

Stop using marketing practices that don't respect your customers. Clean and Clear puts their customers on a robo call list and does not take them off. I've asked 3 times for my phone number to be removed and they have failed to do so after almost a year of repeated requests. I'll NEVER use this nuisance of a company again. They show no respect for their customers' preferences. Can't block their calls either because of the ringless voicemail messages - their caller ID is blocked from view. I've grown to despise this company.

I was thrilled at the promptness Of Brandon Kedrowski. Then the efficiency and swiftness of his work was fantastic . I just learned Clean and Clear does gutters so I will be calling them this morning. This is the second time I have used their services and last year they were just as great. I would recommend them anytime.
