Have you ever marvelled at the crystal-clear windows of commercial buildings or wondered how professionals achieve such flawless results? Cleaning glass to a professional standard requires more than just a spray bottle and a rag—it involves specialised equipment, expert techniques, and the use of high-quality glass cleaner liquid.


Let's delve into the step-by-step process of how professionals clean glass:

  1. Gather the Necessary Equipment:
    Professional glass cleaning begins with having the right tools at hand. This includes a bucket, squeegee, mop or washer, scraper (for tough marks), cleaning solution, rags, and possibly a pole for reaching high windows.
  2. Prepare the Cleaning Solution:
    Many professional window cleaners prefer using eco-friendly glass cleaner solutions like those available at SOVI & TYDI. These solutions effectively dissolve dirt and grime without leaving streaks or residues. Dilute the cleaner as per the manufacturer's instructions in a bucket of cold water.
  3. Apply the Cleaning Solution:
    Using a mop or washer, apply the cleaning solution generously to the glass surface. Ensure thorough coverage, especially in areas with stubborn stains or marks. 
  4. Address Stubborn Marks with a Scraper:
    For tough marks such as paint or varnish, gently use a scraper with replaceable metal blades. Exercise caution to avoid scratching the glass surface. Always scrape in a forward direction to prevent dragging dirt across the glass.
  5. Use the Squeegee:
    Hold the squeegee at a 45-degree angle and with consistent pressure, starting from the top left corner, draw the squeegee down the glass surface in a snake-like motion. Ensure to reach the edges to remove excess water and the cleaning solution.
  6. Wipe the Edges:
    Even with expert squeegee technique, some water may accumulate around the edges of the glass. Use a microfiber cloth or a clean part of the rag to wipe away any remaining water marks and ensure a pristine finish.
  7. Clean the Window Frame and Sill:
    Use a towel to wipe up any water spills on the window frame and sill. Avoid using the microfiber cloth along the bottom of the window frame to prevent rapid soiling.
  8. Check for Remaining Marks:
    Inspect the glass surface for any remaining marks or stains. If necessary, reapply the cleaning solution and repeat the cleaning process until the desired results are achieved.
  9. Repeat the Process for Both Sides:
    For windows with accessible interiors, repeat the cleaning process on the inside to ensure uniform cleanliness and clarity from both sides.


Achieving professional-quality results when cleaning glass requires attention to detail, the right tools, and the use of high-quality cleaning solutions. By following these steps and utilizing eco-friendly glass cleaner solutions, you can enjoy streak-free, sparkling windows that enhance the aesthetics of your home or commercial space.
