Residential and Commercial

Our Approach to Window Cleaning
Window cleaning has evolved over the years into a more scientific approach. Lead Dog uses de-mineralizing technology to remove microscopic solids from the water.
In the world of ground water, soluble minerals collect as rain water filters the through soil. The amount of minerals it collects is measured by a term called TDS, Total Dissolved Solids. In your home, you may add water softening systems or “RO/DI” filters. Lead Dog uses commercial grade RO/DI filters to remove minerals from Chicagoland’s hard water.
An easy comparison
If you sprayed your windows with a hose connected to a buildings water spigot, will it leave rings on the window when it dries? Yes. It always will.
When it rains, will rain water leave spots on your windows? NO! Or, your car would even be spotty after every rain.
Why does this matter?
Removing minerals allows the water to dry spot free. It does not need to be squeegeed, wiped or dried-off. This methods allows us to clean windows as high as 7 stories from the ground without changing between mop and squeegee or the risks (and costs) of repelling down the side of a building.
Leave Heights to the Pros

What may bother you though, are these insects are close to your open window when you’re enjoying a nice day. Maintain a clean window and you’ll enjoy many benefits.
