Professional window washing Alexandria coupled with a good power wash session can do wonders for your home or business. Not only does it improve the appearance of your property, but it also helps keep surfaces in good condition and prevents the formation of harmful bacteria that can pose a health risk to your family or employees. In addition, allowing dirt and grime to accumulate on surfaces like roofs, sidewalks and walkways can cause permanent damage that can be costly to repair.
In many cases, simply spraying your surfaces with water is not enough to get them clean, even if it’s at high pressure. Think of it like taking your car to a car wash without the soap – all of that grit is still there, only now it’s diluted and smeared around. The same thing can happen to your windows if you don’t use the right soap and the right technique.
Start by removing any screens from your windows. Next, use the black low-pressure nozzle to apply your chosen detergent or soap. Using small circular motions across the glass is much more effective than long strokes. Then rinse away the soapy solution with the white nozzle, keeping the nozzle at least three feet away from the window. Remember to only do a few windows at a time so the soap doesn’t dry on the surface.
Once you’ve rinsed the soap from your windows, use the white nozzle to remove any remaining dirt, debris and bugs from the surfaces. Then dry your windows with a chamois cloth, which is used by auto mechanics to quickly and effectively dry cars after washing them without leaving water spots. Or you can use a soft microfiber towel.
Unlike traditional cleaning solutions, Orange OX is an industrial food grade citrus degreaser orange terpenes concentrate that contains wetting agents to loosen and disperse stubborn grease, oil and grime. It can be used at dilutions up to 2 ounces per gallon and is safe for most surfaces. It’s a great choice for a variety of commercial and residential applications including eliminating mildew, mold and grease from concrete floors, power washing engines, machinery, truck cabs and bodies, and more.
While power washing is a simple and effective way to clean most surfaces, it may take special treatments or specialized tools to remove some types of stains, such as rust or oils. If you are unsure about the type of stain that is on your surfaces, it’s best to consult with an Alexandria power washing company, like Bubbles Window Washing & Gutter Cleaning, who can advise you on the appropriate cleaning methods and products for your unique situation.
