Windows are portals to the outside world. They invite nature into your home, bringing in loads of sunshine, fresh air and the natural scents of the great outdoors.
When well kept and clean, windows add a touch of tasteful elegance to your home, creating a pleasant and hospitable atmosphere.
At the office, windows are a direct reflection of your business culture. When windows are attractive and immaculately kept, you make a huge impression on your clients and visitors.
Call The Window Experts
Cleaning and maintaining your own windows and window furnishings is a big job. It can be tedious and time consuming, sometimes exceeding your abilities.
Call us. We offer high-quality professional window cleaning services for your home or office.
Feet Up Cleaning will send skilled teams of window technicians to your home or office. Using advanced equipment and materials, they will provide you with all of the best quality window services you require, including:
Window furnishings come in a variety of materials such as wood, vinyl, metal, natural fibers, synthetic fibers, and others. Our expert technicians come up with the best window cleaning solution by selecting the best cleaning procedures for each type of material.
To begin the window treatment Feet Up Cleaning will send representatives to your home. They will carefully remove all of your windows' furnishings and drapes and bring them to our plant.
Once there, they will be treated and serviced with meticulous care. Once finished, our representatives will return to you home and reinstall them at no extra charge.
Occasionally drapes may be cleaned where they hang. In these cases Feet Up Cleaning employs either a low moisture hot water extraction method or a dry cleaning process for safely cleaning the most delicate fabrics. Alternatively, we can administer a "drapery dust down", thereby removing contaminants and odors and leaving your drapes immaculately fresh and clean.
We will gently lift out soil and stains and have your furnishings dry within minutes. Your draperies will be like new before you know it-attractive to the eye and a compliment to your good taste.

Use a hand-held vacuum cleaner to clean window screens and remove dirt from frames and window tracks.
Wash the outside of the windowpanes from left to right and the inside from top to bottom. This way if they are streaked you'll know which side to do over.
Wash from top to bottom so drips don't streak or spot those places you've already washed.
Crumpled newspapers still give the best cleaning but make your hands black. Try cotton rags, percale pillowcases, a cloth diaper or a coffee filter (works GREAT on mirrors too!).
Use a soft toothbrush to clean the inside corners.
Cleaning - Lay screen against an outside wall or fence. Rinse thoroughly with a hose to remove most of the dirt. Scrub with a nylon brush and a mixture of dish detergent and water. Dry with an old towel.
If aluminum storm windows don't glide smoothly in their tracks, make a scrunched ball of waxed paper and rub it along the edge of the window casing a few times.
To clean aluminum frames, use liquid soap and a scouring pad. After rinsing, put a few drops of vegetable oil on the tracks. Move the window up and down to distribute the oil evenly.
Use a lint brush on the window screen to pick up dust and grime (reserve that one for windows only not clothing).
Tie a fishing sinker or similar small weight to the ends of curtain drapery cords to keep them from flapping around.
Use Velcro instead of hooks on drapery tiebacks.
If curtains won't stay closed, put a magnet in each of the bottom hems.
When a roller shade won't work, keep it in place with Velcro. Attach the loop side to the windowsill and the hook side to the bottom of the shade.
If your drapes are backed with the rubber-type insulator and part of the backing tears, replace it with the caulking compound used to seal around bathtubs and windows.
Mend your torn drapes with iron-on interfacing.
Spot problems - try a cloth dipped in a mixture of rubbing alcohol and water.
Apply a coat of clear paste wax or floor wax to outdoor windowsills to protect them from dirt and moisture (this also works well on wood furniture kept outside).
Mini-blinds are always dust collectors. Before hanging new or just-cleaned blinds, spray them with anti-static guard. It'll take the dust longer to build up and easier to remove when it does!
Metal or Plastic Blinds
Hang the blinds on self-stick hooks in your shower and use a hand-held shower hose and dishwashing liquid to wash and air dry.
Hang the blinds over a clothesline, then clean with a soapy brush and rinse with a garden hose.
