First off, let me tell you what not to do: Don’t power wash your screens. If you power wash your screens you’re going to have problems. You’re going to have marks that go back and forth on the screens, and that’s from the power washer. Worse, it could ruin your screen completely and rip holes into it. You do not want to power wash your screens. If you wash them with soap and water they would look alright, but a lot of the time you have muddy spots and muddy streaks on the screen, it doesn’t get them the way you want them to turn out because they’re so dirty.
The best way to clean the screen: You need a soft bristle brush that is firm. You can get it at your local hardware store. If you brush them and you start from the corners, you’ll be able to get the screen looking really nice. Just brush both sides of the screen, and if you want to further protect your screens after cleaning them, I recommend highly 303 protectant. You can find that online. You could use armor-all, but it doesn’t work as well, It’s very important that you do keep up your screens. And again, if this is too much of a hassle to do yourself, I highly recommend you hire a Las Vegas power washing and window cleaning company to do that for you so that you don’t have to worry about it.
If you’re one of those lucky people in Las Vegas that have a high vaulted glass window; those beautiful glass windows, but they’re 20 feet up in the air, and you don’t know how to get to them, here’s the best way to clean that window: Obviously you need a ladder, but with that ladder you’re going to need drop-cloths. You’re going to need rags that you can put on the ends of your ladder. If you have cultured marble and you put the ladder on that floor, you need to have someone hold the bottom of that ladder or it’s going to slide out from underneath you; causing problems on your wall, as well as causing serious injury to yourself and others.
You’re going to need to prop that ladder up against the wall. Just remember that before you put that ladder up, make sure you put the rags on each end of the ladder where the ladder will be going against your wall. So, when you put it up against your wall it will protect your sheet rock. Now once you put it up there, make sure there’s someone holding that ladder so that it doesn’t slip out from underneath you. Then you’re going to have to get up there and wash that glass. Make sure you have the right tools: you are going to need a professional mop and a professional squeegee. You can do this, or you can hire a window cleaning company to do that for you.
After you hire a Las Vegas window cleaning company, and they clean your windows, they look great, but now you’re wondering, “Well how often should I clean them?”. And that’s a questions that I get asked by clients numerous times: “On what schedule should I get my windows cleaned?” It really depends on two things: 1. Your budget and 2. How much do you care about your windows?
An average Las Vegas house has thousands of dollars of glass, and so you want to protect that glass. If you don’t clean the windows on a regular basis, you could have problems such as corrosion, especially from hard water. A lot of the time, hard water will put etches into your glass; meaning it burns holes into your glass. Window cleaning on a regular basis is the best way to prevent that. People ask me how often they should have it cleaned. I would recommend at least every three months. If you don’t want to do it every three months, I would have the outside window cleaned at least every six months, and then have the inside and out of all of your glass done once a year. I highly recommend that – it will keep your glass look great, and it should keep it corrosion free for years to come.
My name is Erik Ross and I run a cleaning business out of Las Vegas Nevada. I am creating this bog as a test to making money online in the cleaning industry. My first goal that I am chasing is $100 per month, but I will come back to that a little later.
My Cleaning Background
I have been in the cleaning industry for over 20 years, mainly focusing on the commercial industry. This business has been my passion as well as my life.
When I wake up all I can think about is my business, and its not like your normal job that you cringe every time Monday rolls around. I am excited every day to wake up and go to work.
I started out doing every single cleaning job myself and have grown it to a size that I no longer do the cleaning I focus on the running of the business.
Plan for this site
The plan for this site is just to document my journey of building out a new business. It is not going to be anything fancy unless it starts getting some traction. So if you like the content please leave a comments on the posts and that will let me know to update more often as well as improve the look and feel of the site.
As of right now it is just my personal journal to track my progress
My online Cleaning Business
I have started a new cleaning business based around residential cleaning services henderson nv now. This is on a whole other level than my traditional commercial cleaning business. It is mainly an online business.
How it works is I have a full functioning payment portal and customer dashboard that will handle all of the bookings and automate the scheduling and billing process.
Once a customer enters their info into the booing page it signs them up for the dashboard where they can pay and control their appointments.
I am in a group called groove where this is the business model that we follow.
I am currently working with a few others that are following this same model across the country.
Rain City Maids
Rain city maids is one of our partners in “crime” they are offering House cleaning services Redmond WA if you visit their website you will see that they have a very similar website to mine and have the same setup. Just like me they are just starting up.
House cleaning services Redmond Oregon is also another one of the members of the group that is running a cleaning business. They are doing things a little different and more of the traditional method, doing the cleaning their selves and just taking orders over the phone.
Maid In Broward
Maid in Broward is the last company that we are working with on this little case study. Again they are following the same platform that we are with the online dashboard and booking all of the cleanings online.
Pro Touch Cleaners
Cleaning Services Caldwell Idaho, I cant say much about these guys just yet because they are pretty new to the group. So far I am impressed and look forward to seeing what they do.
My other projects
I have been running another blog helping cleaning companies grow their commercial cleaning client base and showing them how to advertise your cleaning business this has been a lot of fun for me and I plan of releasing more content as time goes on.
