If you are a window cleaning professional or a DIY enthusiast planning a window cleaning operation, then one of the cleaning essentials you need to get for your toolkit is a good commercial grade window scraper. Window scrapers, also called blade scrapers or window razors or glass scrapers, are a small but essential tool required while prepping windows for cleaning.
With the help of a window blade scraper, you can remove stubborn deposits and debris like paint, tape, old stickers, caulk, stucco, bird droppings, dirt etc. from glass, tile, walls and windows with ease. The steel blade of the scraper can remove debris that cannot be easily washed away, and hence the use of a scraper is always essential before beginning a window cleaning project. It can also be useful in cleaning up at the end of a construction or decoration project, after pressure washing to remove any stray marks, and so on.
To allow window washing professionals to do a good job, window scrapers are available in a range of sizes. You can choose your preferred size of blade scraper as per your requirement, be it 3-inch or 4-inch window scrapers or larger ones of 5 or more inches. You should ideally get yourself a blade scraper that has a safety guard over the blade, for your protection. It is also advisable to buy a window scraper with a replaceable blade, as you can then reuse the scraper for a long time by just replacing the blade when necessary.
Window scrapers will work best when used the right way. Always use the scraper only on a dry surface, never on a wet one. Also, make sure that you only scrape in one direction, always, since pulling the blade scraper back will just cause scratches. In addition, if you are working on glass, do make sure that the glass is suitable for scraping and scratch-resistant. For example, you cannot use window scrapers on Plexiglass, solar glass and safety glass.
