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.

Reviews

"Our installation team was top notch. While they said they were sending a "team"to install 21 windows it was only two people. But I see why, the process was seamless and everything was done correctly and consistently with the leadership of Clayton. We had a tiny problem with one window within a week of installation and their response time was prompt to remedy the situation. Our windows are beautiful. Our home is warm and cozy."

"Love the windows and patio door. We want to finish the whole house when we can financially. We give Anderson and employees, especially the sales rep Mike that came to our house, the highest rating. Mike was knowledgeable and courteous. Also not high pressure."
