Our Services

The Flying Squeegee Window Washing provides window washing for residential and light commercial clients in the Olympia, Lacey and Tumwater, WA area. 

We also clean out rain gutters and usually we can clean the outside face of the gutters too.  Cleaning gutters is an often dangerous and dirty job.  For this reason we usually like to schedule this among the last appointments of the day so we won't get dirty outside and go to another appointment where we will be working inside someone's house while our clothes are still dirty.

Window washing technology has advanced in recent years.  In addition to traditional hand wash window cleaning with a T-bar  with a washer cover applying soapy water to the glass and using professional grade squeegees to remove the soapy water and surface dirt, we also employ deionized water and water fed pole window cleaning technology. 

Why clean windows without soapy water using pure deinized water?  Safety!

OSHA ESTIMATES 345 WORKER DEATHS ANNUALLY IN USA over last 20 years as a result of a Fall from Heights!  That is one of the reasons The Flying Squeegee Window Washing has invested in pure deionized water fed pole cleaning system.  The pure water not only cleans the dirt off more efficiently, it also dries to a spot-free finish as it has no impurities.  Tap water contains many types of minerals such as calcium, magnesium, potassium, sodium etc.  These are called Total Dissolved Solids or TDS and are generally measured in hundreds of parts per million.  If you wash a window with tap water the TDS elements don’t evaporate with the water but remain as residue causing “spotting” and ruining a good window cleaning job. So in other words, “water spots” are caused by the minerals left behind when “dirty” water evaporates.  Deionization removes these minerals so there is nothing left to cause spotting.  Pure water cleans glass a lot like soap cleans dirty hands.  Soap molecules cling to the dirt on your hands to make it easier to wash away.  In the same way, pure water wants to return to its “impure state” and so clings to the dirt on the glass making window cleaning significantly easier.  Once the dirt is washed away, all that is left is pure water with little or no TDS elements.  As the water evaporates no residue is left behind leaving sparkling clear glass. 

So the power of pure water means that simply rinsing the glass after scrubbing leaves an excellent streak and spot free glass surface.  No chemicals, no detergents, all that is used is pure, deionized water.

THE ADVANTAGES OF USING DEIONIZED WATER FOR WINDOW CLEANING

By using pure water Got Dirty Windows will give you the following benefits:

  • Safety – up to four floors can be reached without the need of ladders.
  • Environmentally friendly – no detergents or any type of chemical is used, just pure water.
  • Efficient – cleaning with irrigated poles is up to 50% faster than using ladders.  This minimises interruption to staff or the general public.
  • Thorough cleaning – using a brush means window frames and surrounds are also cleaned as part of the process.
  • Greater reach – areas that are very difficult to get to because of physical constraints can now be cleaned.
