Do We Clean Frames and Sills as Standard?
Do We Clean Frames and Sills as Standard?November 10th, 2016 by PPC Pete
PPC take great care and pride in every job we undertake and not only clean the glass, but the frames and window sills too.
The frames and corners of the windows collect the same amount of dirt as the actual glass itself and if not cleaned at the same time can look like only half of the job has been done!
Our operators start by cleaning the top of the window frame surrounding as this area usually holds the most amount of dirt. They will get the brush right into the corners and any air vents, to get out as much of the trapped dirt, debris and spider webs as possible, before rinsing it all off with pure water. The brush then moves off to clean the sides and bottoms of the frame where we usually find a lot of the dirt has gathered, in the groves and behind the frame, although this comes out very easily with our specially angled brush heads. We will then get the brush head onto the window sill and scrub with as much downward pressure as possible to remove any green algae and dirt buildup to the bottom of the window and water traps as possible, leaving the window sill looking as clean as the frames.
Once the frame surroundings have been thoroughly cleaned and rinsed the operator will move on to the next window frame to allow the water to partially dry before actually coming back to clean the glass. There are a couple of reasons we do it this way, the first is to allow us to make sure the frame has stopped dripping any dirty water back onto the glass and the second is to make sure the frame is completely clean before cleaning the glass.
When the operator has finished cleaning all of the frames and sills, and is happy they have come up well enough to offer our 100% money back guarantee then he will start on cleaning the glass. As long as the frames are dry enough this will stop any dirty drips getting back on to the glass after we have done the final rinse with pure water, and will ensure a spot and streak free finish to your windows.
