Do We Clean Frames and Sills as Standard?
Do We Clean Frames and Sills as Standard?by PPC Pete
PPC take great care and pride in every job we do – we don’t just clean the glass, but the frames and windowsills too.
The frames and corners of the windows actually collect the same amount of dirt as the actual glass itself and if they aren’t cleaned at the same time it can look like the job has only been half 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 cleans the sides and bottoms of the frame (where we usually find a that lot of the dirt has gathered), in the groves and behind the frame. Then we scrub the windowsill with as much downward pressure as possible to remove any green algae and dirt buildup to the bottom of the window, leaving the windowsill 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 first before cleaning the glass. There are a couple of reasons we do it this way, firstly because it allows us to make sure the frame has stopped dripping any dirty water back onto the glass, and secondly to make sure that the frame is completely clean before scrubbing 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 pure water rinse, and will ensure a spot and streak free finish to your windows.
