Cleaning Tips for your Home – Have you tried these…

With the Christmas season right around the corner and families and guests spending more time indoors we thought we would put together a simple list of 4 useful tips and tricks to get your home ready! Clean Sponges Wiping down your counter tops when you cook? Obviously a sponge gets dirty and also has germs. Use your microwave for 2 minutes to kill germs and sanitize your sponges. Sparking Cookie Sheets Have your cookie sheets seen better days? With frequent use your cookie get grimy. Rather than tossing them out, try this tip: – 1/4 cup of baking soda in a small glass bowl – squirt in hydrogen peroxide until it makes a nice paste. Rub it on the cookie sheet grease with a small sponge (that one you just cleaned? Nope! Pick up something that you will toss when done). This combination does a great job of cleaning. Cleaning the Ceiling Fan Blades the Easy Way If you have ceiling fans they have done their work all summer long. Now that you have them turned off for longer periods of time you might notice the dust that covers them. If you’ve used dusting brooms and things such as this you probably noticed that more dust gets in the air. What to do! Find your old Pillow cases and use one to slide onto the blades of your ceiling fans, then wipe the blades off inside the case. Quick, easy and clean! Clean Window without streaks As you get your home ready for the Holiday season, cleaning windows is usually top of the list. Check out the video below to learn how. Extra Tip: When done cleaning your windows use that Squeegee to clean pet hair off of your carpet by gently brushing the Squeegee over the carpet where the pets hang...

Summer Heat and Your Windshield

Posted by on July 21, 2015 in Auto Glass Replacement, Windshields | 0 comments

Summer Heat and Your Windshield

Although windshields are subject to cracks and chips during any time of the year, the intense Arizona heat and resulting fluctuations in windshield temperatures can exacerbate these types of problems. The incredible heat generated by Arizona’s sunny days can wreck havoc on a windshield, making it especially important to take special care of your vehicle during the summer months. Here are a few tips to help you keep your windshield in the best possible shape this summer.   Park Your Car in the Shade One of the biggest culprits for having a windshield crack in the summer is the direct heat it endures while baking in the hot summer sun. If you find yourself with a chip or crack in your windshield, be sure to park in the shade until you can get it repaired by a licensed professional like Fast Glass Arizona. Excessive summer heat can make fractures in your windshield less stable, leading small chips to be shattered windshields in not time at all. As an added precaution, try cracking your car windows to help reduce the internal temperature of the car.     Slow Down Temperature Changes Sudden temperature changes that occur when you go from a hot, parked hot car to a sudden blast of cold A/C can cause major problems for windshields. Running your A/C on high will cool the inside of the windshield quickly while the exterior remains hot, causing stress on windshield glass. It is recommended that you try not to blast cold A/C right away upon starting the car, but instead enact a slower transition in order to save windshield glass.   Wait to Wash Your Car Try not to wash your vehicle in the direct sun or while your windshield is hot. The cold water of a car wash compounded by a hot windshield is a recipe for a crack. Also be careful if you already have cracks or chips. Washing your car with a cracked or chipped windshield can weaken repairs. Try waiting until the sun goes down and the temperatures cool down before washing your vehicle at home or taking it through the car wash.   Don’t Slam Your Doors Take care in closing doors, hoods, and trunks on your vehicle. Vibrations from a slammed door or trunk can cause even the smallest of windshield chips to spread suddenly across the entire windshield.   The best way to ensure that chips and cracks don’t spread is to have your windshield permanently fixed by a trusted professional. At Fast Glass Arizona, we don’t play the auto glass replacement game. Save yourself the bribing and hassling of a quick fix at the car wash and allow us to provide you with fast, professional service. At Fast Glass Arizona, we pride ourselves on integrity and results. We always keep up on the latest industry standards and have been replacing and repairing auto windshields in Arizona since 1982. Contact Fast Glass Arizona today for our full auto glass services, including windshield repair and replacement as well as door, vent, quarter, and back glass repair and...

Cleaning Your Home Windows

Cleaning Your Home Windows

Windows are one of the most important features on any home. Not only do they let in air and light, but they protect us from the elements like dust and dirt as well. Living in Arizona, we’re no strangers to extreme temperatures and incredible amounts of dust and dirt, and keeping windows clean can be an exhausting chore. Here is a quick method to help you keep your windows sparkling, even in the most extreme elements. With the right tools kept handy, window washing can be quick and painless. The first step in a stress-free window cleaning is choosing the right time of day. You want to choose a time when the sun is not shining directly on your windows, since the added Arizona heat can cause the cleaning fluid to dry, creating unsightly streaks and spots. To begin, brush out all of the cobwebs and loose dirt from your windows and frames with a soft-bristled brush or broom. You want to begin with a clean surface without having all of that debris in your way. Then, mix up a solution of one part white vinegar and one part hot water. This is wonderful all-natural cleaning solution that will leave your windows sparkling clean. Once you’ve mixed your solution, wet a sponge and wipe the windows free of that clingy Arizona dust and dirt. Next, using a squeegee, begin in an upper corner of the windowpane and draw down in a straight line. Return to the top of the window and repeat, overlapping each stroke slightly. It can be helpful to wipe the edge of the squeegee after each stroke to remove excess cleaning fluid and dirt. To finish, dampen a cloth with all-purpose cleaner and water and wipe down your window frames. Rinse them thoroughly and then dry with a clean, dry cloth. Ta-da! Enjoy your clean windows! While clean windows are wonderful, sometimes accidents happen and you find yourself with a cracked or shattered window. Leaving broken windows open to the elements can be stressful and even a safety issue, so it is important to contact a licensed, insured, and bonded glass repair company to take care for the work for you. Fast Glass Arizona has been local in Gilbert, Arizona for years and brings fast, friendly service right to your door. If you find yourself in need of glass repair, call for a free, no-strings-attached estimate...
