If you need to touch up your skills, check out Mark Strange's window cleaning DVD: http://www.windowcleaningskills.com/ He's a well known window cleaning expert based out of Toronto.

Waterfed poles are great, but if you are doing construction window cleaning, you will need to get nose-to-glass with a scraper to get all the crap off. Just make sure the windows aren't tempered and that you have them sign a waiver for fabrication debris.

Hi there,
According to me window cleaner is a good option to take along with you when you are cleaning it. Window cleaning cloths can be used as a window cleaner tool microfiber cloths are also used as window cleaning cloths.

This DVD is great by the way, however I still prefer the good old way to clean the windows. The squeegee can do wonders to almost any window.

There is various ways to easily clear window but find the best way it is very important, because there is lots of solution like mixture of vinegar with liquid shop and water available on web.... but better is that if you take any professional window cleaning service then you get prefect cleaning in easy way.

Etorre is good, or Sorbo, but keep the dawn. If its streaking, it might be you went to heavy on the soap. Try a few tablespoons of soap with 3 gallons of cold water.
