What Do Window Pros Use to Clean Windows?

Most homeowners would choose to clean their windows with old newspapers or a damp cloth since this is what is immediately available to them. However, is it as effective and efficient as other cleaning solutions available on the market? In fact, this could do more harm than good due to the smears and marks left behind after they wipe their windows. With that said, it’s helpful to know the best equipment that you can use to clean your windows.

Here’s what window professionals use to clean windows.

Cotton Towels

Cotton towels are one of the most accessible window cleaning materials on the market, and they’re quite absorbent and affordable. These towels will perform well as long as they have been properly cleaned and dried several times before being reused. This is done to remove the lint residue and avoid them from sticking to the surface you’re cleaning. You can also use a larger towel as a drop cloth or a hand towel if you’re working on sensitive surfaces.

Chamois Towels

Chamois towels are also known as shammies. You can commonly see them in automotive stores since they’re commonly used in automotive detailing. These towels are used after cleaning cars since other cloths could scratch the surface of the car. In fact, experts on windows use them to clean windows due to their delicate nature since they can remove dirt without leaving residue behind, resulting in a smooth cleaning job.

Surgical Towels

Last, but not the least, surgical towels are the most popular option among professional window cleaners. This is because surgical towels are highly absorbent, portable, durable and lint-free. It’s no surprise that this towel has been the top choice among window contractors since it gets the job done without letting them worry about scratches or smudges.

"This was one of the best experiences I've ever had with a company. I ordered the windows in November and was told they wouldn't be here until July. That kind of delay the new norm so I wasn't a bit upset with the timeline. I was given an early present when they called to say the windows would be in at the beginning of May. We agreed on the week of May 16th to do the installation, there were 30 windows and a sliding door to install. They arrived promptly on their scheduled install date, and got straight to work. By the end of day one, they had all the upstairs windows complete and their work was incredible. Day two came with more of the same, the crew showed up promptly, got straight to work, and when they left they had every window downstairs installed. The third day they again arrived on-time, and got to work installing the door. The door and windows are perfectly installed. The two lads that did the installation did a phenomenal job, and were friendly to boot. I would give them more business if I had any :) The service I received from the company was great. They kept me abreast of anything that was going on with my order. I appreciate my concierge, Christina, she was good at communicating timelines and getting everything scheduled."

"The two installers were great! They were polite and hard working and they cleaned up all the outside and inside. It was like they were never here. As for the windows, I love them, not only looks great, they are efficient. Now every window in my home has Renewal by Anderson."

"We had the pleasure recently of having Andersen replace all of our windows. From the very first interaction with the office personnel through the completion of the project, they have been nothing but professional. From Brian our sales rep to Christina the appointment scheduler, they were a pleasure to interact with. Installers Keith, John, and Evan were fantastic to work with. They went above and beyond to repair an area which was slightly damaged during the removal of a window...caulked and painted it. They took extra precaution to ensure the floors were covered while working inside and cleaned up each day inside and out. We love the look of our new windows and can't wait to enjoy the savings in utilities they'll provide. Thanks so much Renewal by Andersen!!"
