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.

Door Hangers: These guys...

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.

 

Take a look at thes...

This is a part of a new series on some of the day-to-day experiences we have on the field!

 

With a name like Ottawa Student Windows, people are often surprised to learn that one of our favourite jobs is eavestrough cleaning!

 

We can probably account this to the satisfaction of seeing how different your eavestroughs look before and after in images such as this one. Taken in Glebe, this shot shows an...

A blooming bed of orchids adorns the interior of the bay windows at the front of my grandmothers house. To me, they are an exhalation of life from a woman who raised three boys and supported six grandchildren, who combs auras over the ill and pours tea at each family gathering.

 

For my grandmother, they are her mane and pride. At countless family gatherings she will remind us that her neighbours wa...

Down here in Kingston, the bright blue sky signals more than just good weather and the end of another school year. The window cleaning season is upon us, and without the library to confine us, another summer of entrepreneurship will define us.
