Window Cleaning Issues - Canvassing, pole systems, pricing, problems, etc.
in side pub windows.
Posted by steve_massey (steve_massey), 12 October 2003I've been commercial window cleaning for about 3 years and do a lot of pubs and clubs.
There is one pub on my round which i clean in side but i carn't get the nicotine of the glass.
I use G4 which i've used for about a year and it won't shift it. I've tried unger Tabs, Unger liquid. someone told me to try a drop of bleach in water but that made my sqeege rubbers go soft and sticky. The trouble is that the pains of glass are small georgean style and i have to use a 8 inch squeege. Have any of you got any idears
what to try

Failing that try some household ammonia in your solution and soak a few up first, then scrub again before dry.
Also tell the landlord that you're having trouble and try to up the cleaning frequency.

We have a product that melts tar & nicotine right off.
It is a very inexpensive product. We use it for car interiors and it works very efficiently. It is also non toxic.

Posted by karlosdaze (karlosdaze), 13 October 2003I had a bit of success with the Unger pill, especially made for removing nicotine.
