In a normal circumstance, windows ought to be cleaned or washed for a minimum of two times in a year, but it is often a task most people dread so much and do not like looking forward to. Ideally, window washing (i.e. cleaning architectural glass used for the purpose of lighting or decoration) shouldn't have been a serious job if the exercise is done appropriately. In fact, and from various observations, what has made the window washing activity a 'chore' is that many home owners opt for wrong cleaning materials and substances for the exercise. For instance, materials like newspaper, wadded-up paper, towels, spray cleaner etc. are some of the disgusting wrong materials used during the cleaning activities.

This simply means indulging in best practices thereby making use of specialized tools and substances readily available and designed for the purpose-one good example of such tools is the squeegee. To work like the professionals, the techniques are not technical or complicated and the desiring results are not tedious to attain. As mentioned earlier, there are tools which are specially and specifically designated for the exercise; few of such tools are mentioned below;
