THOSE DOG DAYS…

 

 

 

If asked, the dog that resides at my house would certainly agree that the dog days of summer have arrived.

It has been hot and humid (even here in Albuquerque) for days. Afternoons call out loud for a person to nap along with those dogs. Before I heed to that invitation, I want to remind all readers that the online places we refer you to have great ideas for summertime.

And if your windows are dirty, I always suggest that you HIRE A PROFESSIONAL. 

If you insist on washing your own windows, please use a squeegee and a wetbar. And, the suggestion of using vinegar and wadded up newspapers that you see in a lot of “how to” info is really not a good one.Best tip…HIRE A PROFESSIONAL. They are not expensive and it really does improve your outlook on life!

No Streaking For Your Windows!

Working for My Window Man in Albuquerque, and always up for a challenge, my son said, “Of course I can do these windows with a long pole, and have no streaks.” Without a special ladder that was the solution for sure.

When ya want life easier always HIRE A PROFESSIONAL!

Top Ten Reasons Your Mom Needs Clean Windows

Meet my currently, blooming orchid! I am pretty sure I received it for Mother’s Day a few years back, and it keeps on blooming. They do make a wonderful gift, but how about adding window cleaning to the mix. It is not to late to call your favorite window cleaner (or one you do not know yet) and buy a gift of window cleaning. Any mom will appreciate this one.

In the last blog post here, I gave tips regarding maintaining windows. I decided to add why they need to be clean.

There are many reasons why your Mom wants her windows clean. Today I will give my top ten.

  1. To see the hummingbirds better
  2. To improve her outlook on life
  3. To support your favorite window cleaner
  4. To confuse the birds
  5. To boost her morale
  6. To make them sparkle
  7. To impress the neighbors
  8. To brighten up the inside of her home
  9. To enjoy the view
  10. To decrease damage and etching caused by pollution, water and dust, which in turn helps maintain the value of her home

See my point?

HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!

Gotcha Covered!

Okay, you have probably already scheduled a professional to clean your windows for fall – definitely my choice. Well, at least you have planned on cleaning them yourself. Right? Either way, you might have some clean and/or naked windows that need window coverings. 

Before you go to the local box store, and pay sales tax, consider visiting BlindsExpress.com online to take advantage of their fall specials. They have blinds, shades, cellular shades and many other options to cover up those naked windows, or those ones that suffer from dilapidated old stuff. They offer great customer service and have quick delivery. They even show you how to measure correctly.

If you have already shopped and know what brand you want, you can probably find it at BlindsExpress.com. They have all the name brands and that is backed up with 45 years of experience. I bet you will find exactly what you want to dress up your windows!

OH DEAR… HIGH WINDOWS

Dear Son,  (my one and only son, and my youngest child)

I know your father taught you how to use a squeegee at an early age, and he might have even put you on a tall ladder once or twice. I do not remember giving you permission to climb up really tall ladders.

And, I know for sure I never suggested jumping off a building that was over half of a story. 

Please  try to look like you are having fun.

Love, 
Mom

Oh, the things we do for clean glass.

Are your windows dirty? Support your local window cleaner.
HIRE A PROFESSIONAL!

HANDING DOWN WINDOWS TO THE NEXT GENERATION

Exactly a year ago, I did a blog post called Regarding February. Well, here we are again. Thank goodness it is almost over, because it is just not my favorite month. However, we are having such a mild winter, I have decided to view it as getting ready for spring.

As a result, I contacted My Window Man here in Albuquerque, which means I talked to Maria who was highlighted in my last post, and I invited them over to make my windows sparkle. Lo and behold, my grandson Hunter, who just celebrated his fifth birthday,  tried his hand at holding a squeegee.

The way time flies it won’t be long until he accompanies his dad more often. Not sure how many he cleaned, but they all look so much better. 

Thanks, My Window Man!
