Need Help Cleaning Vinyl Windows?

I had some customers ask the other day about cleaning their vinyl windows, so I wanted to send out the same info for everyone else as well.

“We have the vinyl windows with screens in our porch. We love it! You gave us some vinyl cleaner that we can use for the interior that is not so practical for the exterior. Is there a safe soap and water option to clean the exteriors with? I am worried about the soap. Is there one that works using a hose?”

PGT Eze-Breeze makes a special cleaner and preservative that is great for the windows, but a little expensive. We sell it here in the office if you need it.

If you want to save a few bucks, use it on the inside, and you can use soap for the outside and the screens. But always clean the outside and the screens first.

For soap, I always recommend mixing equal parts Woolite and water in a spray bottle or a spray bottle that attaches to a hose. Below are links to order each.

Water Hose Spray Connector  ( https://amzn.to/2zQM4nt )

Here’s an instruction sheet from PGT Eze-Breeze that goes into more detail:

If anything is broken or needs maintenance, bring the affected panes by the office or you can buy spare parts kits here at the office.

In addition, here’s a short video I made that gives a few extra tips about cleaning them- DIY Vinyl Window Cleaning

Lastly, if you don’t want to clean them at all, we can do it. Just give us a call.

Thanks,
Dave

Quarantine Spring Cleaning Time!

By this point, everyone should be staying at home unless you’re buying essentials or are essential. So what do you do with that time?

With all the heavy rains this week, especially Monday’s pre-hurricane season primer, most of the pollen should be gone. That means it’s time to clean up those porches.

 

 

I’d like to help with that. Here’s what we can do…

  1. I have guys that will clean your vinyl windows if you don’t want to mess with it.
  2. We sell vinyl window cleaner in our office, or I’ll even deliver it if you’re buying 2 or more cans.
  3. I can e-mail you instructions for cleaning your vinyl windows.
  4. We can repair any damaged vinyl panes at our office in Surfside.
  5. Low-pressure cleaning of the inside of your screen rooms.
COVID-19 Disclaimer:
  • We are open, because we’re still an essential business due to some of our company’s infrastructure work.
  • Our front office is still open.
  • We can do everything contactless. You can even pay straight through our website.
  • All of our work is outside your home, so no worries about social distancing.

Just message me back if you need cleaning, cleaner, or instructions.

What does a minivan have to do with the flooring in your sunroom?

When all the work trucks are busy and out on jobsites, and you need to pick up some materials, what do you do?

In this instance, I had to pick up some flooring for a customer and borrowed the owner’s wife’s minivan. It also happens that the owner’s wife is my mom, so we snuck out for some lunch at a seafood restaurant where we’d installed a sunroom a few years back.

We’ll go to great lengths, yes, even a seafood lunch, to get your materials to the jobsite.

If you’re thinking about new flooring in your sunroom, here’s how we like to do it:

  1. There’s just too many options for me to carry samples of all of them. Besides, those tiny sample squares don’t do a great job showing you what it looks like.
  2. I like to send our customers to Lumber Liquidators or Lowe’s.
  3. Pick out your flooring, pay for it, and give me the receipt.
  4. I’ll pick it up and deliver it in time for it to acclimate to your jobsite.
  5. My guys will install it.
  6. You enjoy it.

You get exactly the choice you want without wondering if you made the right one based on a tiny sample.

By the way, here’s that sunroom I was talking about earlier. It’s at the Wicked Tuna in Murrells Inlet.
