Mr. Squeegee Window & Solar Panel Cleaning

Mr. Squeegee Window & Solar Panel Cleaning of Modesto provides window, solar panel, and gutter cleaning services to the central California region. Due to its emphasis on water conservation - using 2 gallons of water or less to clean gutters and 3 gallons of water or less for 99.9% of residential window cleanings - Mr. Squeegee’s cleaning services are unique. When cleaning solar panels, water use is metered; on average, 2 gallons of water or less are used to clean 40 solar panels. Clients on Thumbtack, from whom Mr. Squeegee won an award for best reviews, have taken notice of this business’ water conservation efforts.  Online reviews praise the business when it “did a great job and used a minimal amount of water,” demonstrating that clients appreciate being informed about the business’ environmentally-conscious operations. The Mr. Squeegee business has been invited to speak to the public about its success story and sustainable operations.  A Mr. Squeegee representative spoke to a “Future Leaders of America” group at Joseph A. Gregori High School on how to be a successful small business by finding ways to reduce everyday costs, such as the cost of paper and fuel, by going digital, printing on both sides of the paper, carpooling to work, and ridesharing to job sites.  The business also makes it a practice to unplug office equipment when not in use and use CFL lighting to conserve energy; the office manager also telecommutes, saving between $42 and $35 per month on electric bills and $65 monthly on fuel costs.  As the business noted in its school, “Watch the pennies. The dollars will take care of themselves.”
