The Window Cleaning Experts at  A Clean Streak answer your toughest cleaning questions.

Clean your WindowsMichelle L. from Mount Vernon asks: When I was a little girl, both my Grandma and my Mother told me that the best way to get our windows clean was with white vinegar, a splash of ammonia, and newsprint. So, that’s what I’ve always done, but it seems to take forever, and my windows don’t stay clean for long! I’ve noticed that you don’t mention that method on your website…why not?

Window Cleaning SolutionsBill C. from Whidbey Island asks: I’m lucky enough to own a vacation home near Swantown on Whidbey Island and have noticed that the windows on the west side of the house get a lot dirtier than all the other ones, though they don’t seem to be more exposed to the elements.

Don’t Let your Pressure Washer Destroy your Property!

Pressure Washer Use

There are few chores out there more satisfying than blasting dirt and grime away with a single sweep of a wand. In fact, it kind of makes you feel like a superhero (“Captain Clean” anyone??).

5 Reasons Why Clean Windows Are Good For Business

Like every other aspect of your business, dirty or unkempt areas have a negative impact. The key is cleanliness—and for a few good reasons.

Coupeville Washington

Proud To Serve Feature: The Town of Coupeville, Washington

The town of Coupeville has the distinction of being the second oldest town in the State of Washington. Founded in 1852 by Captain Thomas Coupe, this quaint little town of barely 1,800 residents has much to recommend it in the way of charm.

Although Coupeville is located in the northwest corner of Washington State, on Penn Cove, Central Whidbey Island, it gets far less rain than you would expect for its location. The reason is that it is sheltered from many rainstorms by the Olympic Mountains. This mountain effect is why the town’s climate is actually classified as warm summer Mediterranean.

Window cleaning requires know how, precision, and calm nerves. After all, when working from a roof or atop a ladder to remove grime, dust, and dirt, you can easily be one poor decision away from a fall. While the art of cleaning windows has been around for centuries, in our post-industrial society we’ve learned to utilize techniques and equipment which emphasize safety and security.

No structure can thrive without window cleaners—and no community can function without tidying up. Window panes can gather dirt, dust, and debris from the wind or other sources. Even large, high-rise buildings, such as those found in Seattle and other large cities in the Pacific Northwest have to deal with these issues.
