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.

This is our second year to have Clean and Clear put up Christmas lights. We had no problems last year. This year the lights have come loose in multiple places causing them to hang down off the gutters. I had them come out once to fix the problem, which they did. But within days, more areas were detached and hanging down, plus a bulb has gone out. I texted them last weekend with photos showing the areas that needed to be fixed. When I did not hear from them after 2-3 days, I texted again. I still have not gotten a response and no one has come to fix the lights. I don't know if the people that hung them didn't do it right or if they are using a different method of attaching the lights this year. But for the price paid, it is very disappointing to have the lights looking so sloppy and to have some go out. And very disappointing to not get a response to a reported problem.

We hired Clean and Clear to install our Christmas lights. This has been a great experience from the start. I’ve had a few questions/requests since the install and the team has always been really responsive and quick to address any issues. The install was really quick and the lights look great. We’ve gotten several compliments from our neighbors (who used different companies). We will certainly be repeat customers!

Poor communication. Ignored my requests. Would not clean by hand and remove debris as advertised. Only wanted to run around with leaf blowers which did not remove dirt, shingle grit, or seeds. Gutters were not clean. One employee with an attitude made a point to bang his ladder against the gutter every time he moved.Will not use Clean and Clear again for any service. They also will not honor agreed pricing.

A screen was torn. Hard water stain had to be called to attention as they were leaving. They then removed it with a razor; however told me had they used a chemical to remove it, they would charge extra. Tracks were not cleaned in any of the windows. Bedroom window -- dirt from the tracks landed on the floor. They were sloppy.

I'd give the team at Clean and Clear 4.5 stars. They did good work cleaning out our gutters, were flexible on scheduling the job, and provided helpful insight re: options for gutter guard installation. It took a bit of persistence to get "before and after" photos for the job they performed sent over, but that's relatively minor. Would recommend.

Two workers showed up and went on our roof with a leaf blower. After about 30 minutes of blasting our wet leaves and sludge from the gutters they said they were done. Spattered black goo from the gutters was on the sides of our house, garage door, our deck, our bbg grill and our boat trailer and cover. Wet leaves all over our sidewalk, concrete driveway apron and yard. I asked one if they were going to pick up the leaves, like I was told by the woman on phone when I authorized work. He said he didnt have bags. I said they needed to wipe off spatters on the base of house, and rake sidewalk and drive at least. I said I'd rake up the leaves later. I came out after they "finished" and saw they did a quick wipe and smear of sides of house and garage door. I said they needed to wipe better. I got a wet rag and began cleaning the base of the garage door and sides the way they should have, directly in front of the car containing the lazy worker. He never got out of car to help me. I now have to wipe down the boat cover and trailer, rake the leaves, and better clean the deck and sidewalk this weekend. So what exactly did I pay $221 for??

Called them when I couldn’t get a hold of my regular service for 3 weeks. They answered right away and were out to clean my gutters in a couple days. Impressive response and impressive work. Reasonable rates. Already asked to be on their schedule for spring and fall. Highly recommend. In this era where nobody even answers their phone it’s really nice to work with a company that is normal.

Have had friends and family ask for their info because their work was so good! And they responded quickly to my requests for estimates and any questions I had. Their workers were always courteous and left nothing behind for me to clean up when they left! (Which hadn’t always happened with other companies). So I give them an enthusiastic 5 stars!

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.

Our office has glass walls and doors and our cubes have glass on them as well, but Keegan and his crew managed to clean our windows (inside and out), and all the glass in the office in about 8 hours. They were a pleasure to work with and we will hire them again.

For the first time I could see outside through very clean windows. Luckily we were supposed to have rain later but it didn't and that was so good. As I sit here today I am still looking out clean windows. Even the storm door and long entry window were done. I was very happy and promised to see him again next year! Thanks!

We had our house power washed and the windows on the outside cleaned. The jobs were performed by two hard working, polite young men. Their attention to detail was much appreciated and the price was very fair. I would definitely use them again. Thanks Keegan!

Keegan and the Clean and Clear crew have done great work at my old house.
The windows are cleaner than they've ever been, the crew was professional and considerate, and I'll be asking them to repeat the mini-miracle next year. Thank you, Keegan!

Fabulous company! We used Clean and Clear for interior and exterior window cleaning. Keegan, the owner, was an excellent communicator, as they had to reschedule due to a snow storm, but they were there the next week. He and two other guys came and cleaned our windows and screens to perfection. We were so impressed with the professionalism and friendly nature of he and his crew. Highly recommend!!!

The guys did a nice job on cleaning up my fall leaves
Keegan did a great job cleaning our gutters on short notice late this fall. We will use his company again!
We had Keegan and team clean our windows inside & out, and clean a difficult gutter. They did an excellent job, I highly recommend. I was especially impressed with their gutter cleaning. I had hired another company to clean gutters in the past, and the gutter over the back of the house (walkout so quite high) has a screen. Keegan cleared the gutter and flushed with high powered spray to get the years of small shingle pebbles/dirt build up out of there. The other services I had hired in the past didn't do any of that. Keegan also made sure the yard was cleaned up too. Great work Keegan.

Grateful to discover Keegan and his company, Clean & Clear! After contacting others, he came through for me on date and pricing, so I can have clean windows prior to our family party! We were more than happy to let our neighbors know and luckily he received two more inquiries right away! Good news travels fast! Also, glad to know he can help us with other tasks around the homestead. He earned our business!

Brady and his colleague were punctual, friendly, thorough, and efficient. My windows are literally so clean that it looks like there is no glass. They took care with my outdoor plantings when placing their ladders & I didn't even have to request that they remove their shoes when they entered the house.
We are real estate agents and have been searching the market for contractors who can help our clients during house buying, selling and renting transactions. We do not find or hire contractors who just did a one-time job and then disappeared next time, our goal is to establish long term business relationship with the contractors who can meet our strict requirements: responsibility, response, communication, commitment, consistency, trust, quality, price, etc. Fortunately we found Keegan who meet our requirements, he has a wonderful crew and has been done great jobs for our clients. Sometimes, the time is tight for us on the real estate market, like a week time frame, but Keegan always can efficiently manage the work and finish it on time per our request. One of impressive things is his consistency and trust, for example, we give our work requirement, timeline, house number and lock box number, then we are done, Keegan can help everything. Till now, we even have not meet each other, but we have already been worked together for our clients for some time. Can anyone image that? Besides his crew high quality work, this also saves us lot trips/times. He also have a convenient and safe internet payment system which makes us and our clients easy to pay( I dislike the contractors asked me to write a check on site when they are working, which is not effective and efficient way for us). Thank you Keegan, you keep doing the good work to our clients and we keep giving the business to you. That is business life cycle we expect.

Keegan and his crew totally crushed it on our gutter cleaning and gutter guard install. Worked efficiently and showed before/after pics to me to show results of their cleaning. Also a very honest business owner and happily revised a quote upon seeing our home saving us some money. I would recommend Clean & Clear to anyone looking for gutter cleaning and gutter guard installation.

We had a great debut experience with Clean and Clear. Gutters cleaned for the first time in 8+ years. Very timely. Great communication. Fair pricing. Excellent work. I would have liked more photos of more areas of the gutters, particularly areas that I cannot get to. Would definitely recommend and will use Clean & Clear again. Nice work.

I used Clean and Clear for the second year in a row. I was very happy with their work. His crew was very professional, polite, & thorough. I would recommend them.
I found Clean and Clear through an Angie's List "Big Deal" for window cleaning. My appointment was scheduled easily and Keegan worked around my very irregular schedule! My windows and screens were very well cleaned and I especially appreciated that when I asked if the sills of my casement windows could be cleaned, Keegan said "sure". They were cleaned very well and most companies won't do them.

Keegan was incredibly service-oriented, beginning with supplying an estimate and coordinating a time for window cleaning. His communications were clear and concise, and when a day of thunderstorms required a scheduling shift, he made sure that we were able to reschedule quickly.
Keegan and his crew arrived promptly, and they were efficient, professional, pleasant, thorough and conscientious. Prior to leaving the job, Keegan offered up additional services that he thought we might be interested in, but with absolutely no pressure.
The final total matched the estimate exactly. We were extremely happy with our amazingly clean windows and will definitely use Clean and Clear again!

As the owner of a home remodeling company, we look for company's and individuals who share the same goals and work ethics we want associated with our projects. We have been extremely happy with the results and positive comments we received and personally experienced with the Keegan Couillard and his company CLEAN & CLEAR. Not only did we witness the results with our clients but we asked him to do our home. Beautifully done, very clean and the price was very reasonable. His company is on our referral listing for all off our customers. Very highly recommended for both windows and gutter cleaning.

We received exceptional service from Clean and Clear Window Washing Services. Not only were they one of the few window cleaning companies to actually call us back - but they were able to do a last minute job for us on a Sunday morning before our open house. Our windows have never been so clean! GREAT price also! Thank you!!
