We are well on our way through September. School has started, and our crew of window cleaners are returning to the books.

Our summer ended with a bang. Early season clients called us back for an end-of-summer window clean. Nothing like a bright new view to see the reddening palette of fall leaves. In the meantime, late season rain brought a glut of new eavestrough jobs. From Greely to the Glebe, Ot...

Uniforms: The classic polo is out and new, sleek t-shirts have been ordered. These cotton-fits should offer a more breathable experience for our hard working window cleaners, especially in the humid August air. This should help especially for eavestrough jobs that require concentration over hot tarry shingles. The professional polos will now be passed on to our sales team.

The fall, although many of us will not want to admit it……is fast approaching. Like every year, Ottawa turns into a picture perfect mosaic of warm coloured leaves. 

You may find yourself venturing out to Gatineau Park, walking along the picturesque Pink Lake, Wolf Trail or exploring the Mackenzie King Estate. But back at home, the once beautiful, chlorophyll green leaves have transformed and fallen....

Our top ladders are the articulating ladder, the extension ladder, and the 6-foot ladder. Keep reading for a snapshot of each of these ladder's perks and stories of their being put to good use on the job!

The latest additions to our team practicing a "secret handshakes" - sure to be the start of a great summer of window cleaning and sales.

For the past few weeks, Ottawa residents may have seen a few unfamiliar faces among the many window cleaners who compose the Ottawa Student Windows team. Morgan and Wassim, pictured above have just finished their training, and are now equipped to make Ottawa windo...

Last Friday in Westboro, Matt had the opportunity to train the latest member of our team, Morgan Evans, on the in & outs of interior and exterior cleaning. We even had the opportunity to give eavestrough cleaning a try!

 

One of the most important parts of all our training is ladder safety. Did you know ladder injuries are the leading cause of household injuries in Canada? No exceptions apply to the...

Chug-clink, chug-clink, chug-clink. The lower tracks of the Alexandra Bridge in central Ottawa reverberate like a Midway roller coaster as vehicles thunk along below. 

 

From the iron crossties of the Canadian Pacific Rail to the steel wires at your local orthodontist, it is a known fact that tracks are made to take a heavy load. This is no exception in the window cleaning world.
