Tips for Window Cleaning This Spring

It’s amazing how much dirt can creep up on your windows during winter. You probably have a spring cleaning to-do list that’s piling up for your workplace now that the weather’s getting warmer. It’s time to clean out the offices, empty the closets, clean up your office’s outdoor space and clean your office building’s windows. Let’s face it; it’s really not fun to clean your windows in the chilly winter months. Call State Building maintenance for all your office cleaning services.

Ideally, your business’ windows should be washed at least twice a year. Spring is the perfect time to make those windows clear again.

Washing windows can be a hard chore. It takes the right equipment, cleaner, and experience to not only clean your windows but keep them streak-free. Consider SBML for all your office cleaning services.

The first trick is to have the right gear to get your windows clean. You need to have the ability to wash the entire glass of your window, it’s also important to do so safely.

Cleaning your windows provides a great opportunity to check around your window frames to make sure your rubber seals are properly intact. The cold of winter can actually crack and break down the rubber sealing of your windows. Damaged seals will cause your utility bill to skyrocket both in the summer and in the winter. Also, cracked seals will provide a great way for insects, dirt and debris to enter your workplace. Moisture trapped in damaged rubber seals also cause the wood surrounding your window to rot. It’s also not unusual to find moisture trapped between the glass panes of double-pane windows, this should be repaired right away. When left unaddressed you may find yourself needing an expensive repair.

When it comes to actually cleaning your windows it begins with a good squeegee, some high-quality dry cloths and a bottle of glass cleaning solution. We recommend that you purchase an environmentally-friendly cleaner. There are lots of glass cleaners on the market; it may be worth your time to do a little research on which cleaner will work best for your business’ needs.

Avoid using a roll of paper towel to clean your windows. Using wadded up paper towel will simply just move the dirt and grease around the glass, not remove it. Also, it will create a static charge on the window which will attract even more dirt and dust to the glass. You’ll probably notice that your windows will still be dirty after they dry.

You’ll want to pay extra attention to the picture windows in your office building. These windows are the largest and provide tons of attractive natural light into your space. Mix a cleaning solution in warm water (the fewer suds the better) and use a long cloth applicator to spread the solution across the glass without scratching anything.

Once you squeegee the glass you’ll want to clean using a reverse-S pattern, cleaning the squeegee’s blade with a lint-free rag. Another important part to keeping your windows streak-free is to dry the glass with a damp cloth. There are various solutions on the market to eliminate stubborn stains from things such as hard water runoff from mason work or mineral stains from rain.

Sometimes it’s best to leave your spring window cleaning to a professional.

Psychology is the study of the mind and its behaviour, how we think and feel.  So what does psychology have to do, you ask, with cleanliness and State Building Maintenance Limited?  We all dread coming home from work when we know we have to face the dirty dishes that we’ve left in the sink and we can easily identify as to how satisfied we feel when our homes are acceptably clean. So too when arriving at your workplace, you shouldn’t be seeing dirty dishes in the sink, so to speak. We also know, don’t we, that a clean and organized home can improve our mood, decrease our stress and can even give us the energy to do a bit more work, we want this energy to carry over to your place of business. So State Building Maintenance Limited’s first order of business is to have your customer’s and staff’s first reaction be a positive one when they walk into your building.  Ask yourself how you, a business owner, would react when opening an office’s front door that is covered with marks and has a sticky handle.  What one first observes is lasting.  In our cleaning company State Building Maintenance Limited will not settle for anything less but a positive first impression. No matter what product or service your company is selling, an unfavorable first look can affect your bottom line.  We are all taught to not judge too quickly, that there must be second chances, but that doesn’t always happen when a customer’s first thoughts are negative because of inadequate office cleaning.

State Building Maintenance Limited wants your clients and staff to look favourably upon your company, to see glistening windows, spot free floors, we want your customers to be able to walk up to a receptionist’s desk that is free from smudges, notice that the chairs that they are about to sit on are free from grime and we definitely don’t want your customers coming out of your washroom facilities with a look of disgust.  And that look of disgust can happen.  So it is State Building Maintenance Limited’s job to support your business and provide professional office cleaning services.  You may have hired a reputable decorator and purchased eye catching furniture for your office/building but that is not what will first catch the eye of your customers.  What a customer first sees, and we don’t want it to be grime, has great impact, it will create that first impression of who you are.  It can deter them from coming back for that second meeting, that second purchase, they may not give you a second chance.  In starting a new business you would no more open the doors to the public when your office, condominium, manufacturing plant or store hasn’t had an initial clean, nor would you set up a website that is slow running or difficult to navigate, so why would you not chose to run your established company without using every advantage and that is what State Building Maintenance Limited offers, that added advantage.

As it is with that first look when one enters a building, it is also that first disgusting smell that can assail your customers and effect their perception of your business. Unpleasant smells can be caused by dirty standing water, cleaning rags not changed regularly, garbage not removed daily, vents not vacuumed to allow for good air flow and not using effective disinfectants  Smell can be the deciding factor as to how a client perceives your company.

Our first and foremost job is to provide a healthy and safe environment, we work with disinfecting products and steam to kill germs, use up-to-date and effective cleaning tools, make sure your floors are clean and slip free and so forth.  Please check out our website, as WE DO IT ALL.  But we have often found that dirt begets dirt, people are less inclined to be careful when mess is not handled immediately. So sometimes it as simple as hiring our Porter Services for your washrooms during busy hours.   How many times have you looked with dismay at overflowing garbage cans, dripping wet counters and bemoaned the lack of deodorizes.  It all plays into your customer’s psyche.

We know that in many cases cleaning companies are hired because of what they are charging, often the lowest priced quote wins out, but we want to encourage businesses to look at the true “value of clean”, how the psychology behind cleanliness effects your business and not just go by price alone.    State Building Maintenance Limited offers excellent value for money and provides a safe, clean environment but there is also great value when clients arrive at your place of business and leave with no negative impressions and utter no complaints.  We believe that your workplace’s cleanliness plays an important part in bringing in new business.
