Windows are gateways to the outside world. They bring nature into your home, letting in glorious sunshine, gentle breezes and the natural scents of outdoors.
When well maintained and clean, windows add a welcoming touch of elegance to your home, creating a pleasant and inviting atmosphere.
At the office, windows are a statement of your business culture. When windows are looking smart and immaculately kept, you make a huge impression on your clients and visitors.
Cleaning and maintaining your own windows and window furnishings can be a big job, and be both tedious and time consuming-it can sometimes be more than you can handle.
Call us. We provide top-quality professional window cleaning services for your home or office.
Seattle Carpet Cleaning will send experienced teams of window technicians to your home or office. Using ultramodern equipment and materials, they can provide you with all the high-quality window services you require, including:
Window furnishings are made of a variety of materials such as wood, metal, vinyl, natural fibers, synthetic fibers, and others. Our expert technicians choose the best window cleaning solution by selecting the most effective cleaning procedure for each type of material.
To begin the window treatment, Seattle Carpet Cleaning will send a window crew to your home. They will gently remove all of your windows' furnishings and drapes and bring them to our premises.
Once there, your window furnishings will be treated and serviced with the utmost care. When the job is done, we'll return to your home and reinstall them at no extra cost.
Sometimes drapes may be cleaned where they hang. In these cases we use either a low-moisture hot water extraction method or a dry cleaning process for safely cleaning even the most delicate of fabrics.
Alternatively, we can "dust down" your drapery, thereby removing odors and contaminants-leaving your drapes sunshine fresh and clean.
We gently lift out soil and stains and get your furnishings dry within minutes. Before you know it your draperies will be like new-pleasing to the eye and adding a touch of dramatic beauty to your windows.
Use a handheld vacuum cleaner to clean window screens and remove dirt from frames and window tracks.
Wash the outside of the windowpanes from left to right and the inside from top to bottom. This way, if streaks form you'll know which side to do over.
Wash from top to bottom so drips don't streak or spot those places you've already washed.
Crumpled newspapers give the best cleaning but make your hands black. Try cotton rags, percale pillowcases, a cloth diaper or a coffee filter (works great on mirrors too).
Use a soft toothbrush to clean the inside corners.
Cleaning - Lay screen against an outside wall or fence. Rinse thoroughly with a hose to remove most of the dirt. Scrub with a nylon brush and a mixture of dish detergent and water. Dry with an old towel.
If aluminum storm windows don't glide smoothly in their tracks, make a scrunched ball of waxed paper and rub it along the edge of the window casing a few times.
To clean aluminum frames, use liquid soap and a scouring pad. After rinsing, put a few drops of vegetable oil on the tracks. Move the window up and down to distribute the oil evenly.
Use a lint brush on the window screen to pick up dust and grime (reserve that one for windows only not clothing).
Tie a fishing sinker or similar small weight to the ends of curtain drapery cords to keep them from flapping around.
Use Velcro instead of hooks on drapery tiebacks.
If curtains won't stay closed, put a magnet in each of the bottom hems.
When a roller shade won't work, keep it in place with Velcro. Attach the loop side to the windowsill and the hook side to the bottom of the shade.
If your drapes are backed with the rubber-type insulator and part of the backing tears, replace it with the caulking compound used to seal around bathtubs and windows.
Mend your torn drapes with iron-on interfacing.
Spot problems - try a cloth dipped in a mixture of rubbing alcohol and water. Apply a coat of clear paste wax or floor wax to outdoor windowsills to protect them from dirt and moisture (this also works well on wood furniture kept outside).
Mini-blinds are always dust collectors. Before hanging new or just-cleaned blinds, spray them with anti-static guard. It'll take the dust longer to build up and easier to remove when it does!
Hang the blinds on self-stick hooks in your shower and use a hand-held shower hose and dishwashing liquid to wash and air dry.
Hang the blinds over a clothesline, then clean with a soapy brush and rinse with a garden hose.
