Well the spring time is upon us, well okay, I must confess living in San Diego the weather seems like it is always spring.  What can I say?

Being the owner of a San Diego window cleaning company has it advantages.  But perfect weather does not equal spotless and clear windows.

As a matter of fact, most of the time, us San Diegans think our windows don’t ever get dirty.  Not so.

Let me clear one thing up, though, this article is not solely for Southern Californians.  You can use these window cleaning tips no matter where you find your self on God’s green earth.

So ready?  Let’s begin.

Can you guess what the main problem is when trying to clean windows?  Those ugly streaks.  We wake up one day feeling great, believing we can take on the world.  So what do we want to take on?  We want to take on our windows.

But wait just one minute.  Before you even think about taking on such a big job as cleaning your windows, and I’m not saying you can’t, let’s get the procedure right.  And when you do, you will see how much easier it makes this job.

Ready for the how to?  Here goes lickity split.

The first thing you need is the right tools for the job.  This isn’t going to be as simple as breaking out the windex and some paper towels and wiping down your glass table.  No, this will be glass that has been attacked by the elements, the weather, and even birds and insects and whatever else ran into your windows.

So what is the right equipment?  Well it surely isn’t windex and paper towels.  Nope, all you need to do the job right is a squeegee a spray bottle, and then paper towels.

Put all these tools together, use them correctly and you day of cleaning windows will be a breeze.

So now what do you do with these tools?  Well the final part is the secret sauce.  Ready for the secret ingredient?  Drum roll please.  The secret sauce is 2 gallons of water and a teaspoon of dishwashing liquid.  Sounds simple, but that is all you will need to make your windows streak free.

Oh snap, one final ingredient I haven’t mentioned yet.  And it is a biggie.  The final ingredient is a lot of elbow grease.

Remember when you woke up all gung ho ready to take on the windows?  Well after the third window or so, that little bit of elbow grease might just not be enough.

Well when you do, don’t forget where you got the advice.  Your wonderful local San Diego window washing company, who won’t mind adding some elbow grease.
