The inside cleaning is different from cleaning the outside because the outside can be cleaned with a water fed pole and de-ionized water can be used. This method will save you hours of hard work and time.
The cleaning inside is different and cleaning pads, micro fiber cloths, and t-bars are used for cleaning along with top of the line squeegee equipment and of course special buckets that the 18 inch cleaning pads will fit into for dipping and cleaning so water does not spill. Special furniture coverings and coverings for the floors are also are needed. Although extension poles are used, many different ladders are needed to complete the job as well.

After cleaning the windows or while cleaning the windows, you may find hard water damage. Windows with hard water damage require a special type of cleaning and this needs to be discussed with the client at this time.
After completing the job, the windows are fully inspected and any flaws in the cleaning are re-worked. I have found that to do a perfect job takes time and I and my crew allow at least an hour for touch up. This is how I have built my reputation at being very detailed.
I have found that window cleaning always includes a wide number of different types of cleaning like after doing the windows, you always need to wipe the window frames down.
If you are cleaning a large square footage home or business or even smaller types of homes and businesses, it is very common to have to also clean light fixtures that might also have glass around them. A good tip and tool to use for this type of cleaning is the micro fiber cloth. This cloth, because of the fiber will allow you to clean the surface without leaving streaks.
Another good tip and tool is the water fed pole and the de-Ionized water system which cleans your windows spot free. There are so many different types of de-Ionized water systems. There are even water cart systems that come with even more than just a de-Ionized tank, but also a reverse Osmosis system along with the De-Ionized tank all in one unit. These systems are referred to as a water carts.
The water fed pole helps save a lot of time, but if you are doing a detailed job and the windows have not been cleaned on a regular basis, the windows might need to be done several times to be brought back to life or cleaned with a strip washer and squeegee. Learning how to clean thoroughly is a tip all in itself.
A lot of learning how to clean thoroughly is that you must go over and check your work and learn how to look for mistakes. A lot of the time you need to go over the cleaning the second time to get it to look the way you want.
