    Fortunately I just found out from the Shaker Heights housing inspector that everything passed inspection and that all of the violations have been successfully corrected. David did an excellent job in coordinating and assuring high-quality work on all of the many projects that were done here. We will definitely use Reilly Painting again in the future for other projects.

  • Cleaning Windows 101

    If you want clean, streak-free windows in your home, then you better check out this article that gives you the lowdown on how to clean them...the right way. If you want a real expert giving them that clean look, then be sure to contact Reilly Painting & Contracting, your Cleveland Contractors and Home Mechanics!

    • Wash one side of a window with horizontal strokes and the other side with vertical strokes so you can pinpoint which side of the window has a streak.
    • Use a squeegee on a long handle or a sponge/squeegee combination to prevent streaks on large windows.
    • Eliminate tiny scratches on glass by polishing the affected areas with toothpaste.
    • Washing windows should be done on a cloudy day, because direct sunlight dries cleaning solutions before you can polish the glass properly.
    • Use a soft toothbrush or cotton swab to clean corners. ­ ­
    • To give an extra shine to window glass, polish it with well-washed cotton T-shirts or old cloth diapers. Or rub a clean blackboard eraser over a freshly washed and dried window to give it a diamond-bright shine.
