Nesting Season

Nesting Season is ending! ACT FAST & protect your home before the Spring!
Did you know that San Diego boasts the biggest bird list of any county or of any area of equal size in the United States? That’s over 520 species across the county looking to nest under your solar panels!
But don’t worry! We can help you with that.
Give us a call today to discuss solar panel cleaning & the Bird Barrier options we have accessible for your home or business.
Bird barriers can restrict the birds from entering and limits the risk of diseases that come along with these birds.
Birds also create an unsightly mess with droppings. Their feathers, excrements, and often foods gathered can leave stains on your solar panels and other areas where they build nests. Installing a bird barrier would assure that this area is kept clean and tidy.
Once a bird has nested under your solar panels, it is then illegal to move the birds or nest until the eggs have hatched and the hatchlings have flown the nest on their own. This can often be 3-4 months of waiting and a big mess in the meantime. Let us protect your home in the next season by installing a bird barrier on your solar panels.
Feel free to give our office a call to schedule today!

New Year, New Deals!

Wishing you a Happy New Year from all your friends here at Blue Ocean Window Cleaning! A new year means new deals and we’d like to offer you a few deals that you do not want to miss out on!
Starting NOW until the end of FEBRUARY, mention the flyer below and receive anywhere between ’10-25% OFF’ on window and/or door screen repairs and ‘20% OFF’ gutter cleaning.

Now is the time to clean your gutters and remove the material that clogs the downspouts. Avoiding this may cause an overflow of the gutters themselves and consequent damage to your fascia and soffits. And the cooler weather seasons are the perfect time to deal with screen repairs, as the windows aren’t usually open.
Save even more on these services at the same time!

If you can’t stand to look through dirty windows until May but have concerns about the rain, take advantage of our rain guarantee during the next 3 months.
Our Guarantee: We will return and clean up to 15 critical view windows, at no charge; if they happen to get wrecked by the rain within a week of having your windows cleaned.
Did you know that clean windows and screens are not typically affected by rainfall? It is the moisture on already dirty windows and screens that is noticeable after a little rainfall. So, don’t let a little rain stop you!

Call us at 619-450-6553 for these amazing deals, to establish a recurring service, and/or to schedule an estimate today!
Warm Regards,
Blue Ocean Window Cleaning

Why worry about the dirt on my windows and screens? It costs money to clean them!

I say, “Keep them clean.” Regular cleaning of windows, screens, and solar panels reduces the corrosive effects of dirt, moisture, and contaminants … All that to say, “The regular cleaning of these surfaces will protect your investment.”  The window cleaning and screen cleaning will also reduce the number of insects, spiders, and bugs that will congregate around window frames and at times make their way into your home.
Did you ever notice how the windows with screens seem to get dirty more quickly? Stuff builds up on the screens and then migrates to the glass. The dustier the area you are in (like a high traffic volume area where road dust is kicked up) the more you will notice quick buildup of dust on your windows. If you have a number of trees that overhang or are near your home, the more needful it will be to clean the windows and screens on a frequent basis.  Dust & pollen from nearby trees will accumulate on your screens.  Lastly, if there has been construction nearby, the construction mess on your windows/screens can be significant!
So, what to do?
Frequently wiping with a damp towel or light brushing of the screens in between cleanings will cut down on the dirt transfer from screens to windows. That transfer occurs when the wind blows overnight moisture that collects on the screens onto the windows. Wind and rain combined also move the dirt from screens to glass. If the screens are clean it will cut down on the dust that moves from the screen to inside you home when those windows are open. However, the best way to have sparkling windows and clean screens is to bring in Blue Ocean Window Cleaning on a regular basis. With regular cleaning you will be protecting your investment.

Launching a small business? Don’t give up! You can do it!!

When our 2-year-old granddaughter Charlotte used to struggle to put her shoes on, she expressed considerable frustration at times. We could see that after some ongoing “failure” she was ready to give up and quit. But most of the time she’d press on, keep working at it until she succeeded, and then we’d hear:  “I did it!  I did it!” That excited expression was delivered with a grand smile and much joy. I’d like to suggest that we all can learn from Charlotte.
The local paper did a story on my window cleaning business in San Diego when I started it a little over 7 years ago.  When the economy went south (people in the south probably hate that phrase), I was out of work, no real prospects for work, had normal expenses to pay which included a Point Loma mortgage. My wife and I were very anxious and had real concerns about how all this could be worked out. I sat on the edge of our bed at times, nauseous with anxiety.  Some of you may know the feeling.  It seemed impossible.

As I wrestled with what to do I recalled that I had cleaned windows for about four years in the 90’s and it was enjoyable work to do and a profitable little business.   Given that good experience I decided to hand out some slips of paper soliciting window cleaning work. I received a few calls, then a few more.  Ultimately the response to my efforts was such that I launched my window cleaning business, Blue Ocean Window Cleaning, focusing on Point Loma and Ocean Beach, our home for the last 20 years.

Seven years later, I can say: “I did it!”  Today, I have a good income stream, I am my own boss, and I have an A+ rating with several ratings entities.  I now have 9 employees working full or part time and we serve or have served nearly 2,000 customers.
Now, for those of you who currently have your back against the wall because you’re out of work, facing a layoff or other difficult circumstance, I’m telling you: “You can do it too!” You may be facing uncertainty, feeling anxious and fearful, you may be in the worse-case scenario, but if you do just a few things, it can all turn around in ways you never expected.

This is America.  She’s not perfect, but it is the land of opportunity. You can succeed, even in a “Great Recession.”  WARNING: Be prepared to work! Prepare to see efforts not work out as planned and be ready to reinvest your earnings. Expect some frustration, disappointment, setbacks, and nominal support from some. And absolutely anticipate this… “Negative mind chatter,” the voice in the head with discouraging words of fear and failure.  To reduce the voices simply be aware of the distressing thoughts when they arise and in that moment of noticing there is now actually a little gap between you and the troubling thought. You are now not thinking the disturbing thought.  As you practice this awareness, you will find the negative thoughts appearing less and less until they are reduced to nearly nothing.   As you are “in action” you can also expect the universe, God, Life, to begin to work with you and support your action.  Be prepared to see doors open, and to get good ideas that will take you to the next level.  Be attentive to the creativity that will arise within you as you weigh paths to take toward your new day. Here is a key to success: Do what your hand finds to do TODAY. Stay out of tomorrow and yesterday!   We as humans have a great propensity to live in fear of the future and in regret about the past — and these persistent thoughts rob us of the joy, peace and power of NOW. The negative mind chatter will take from us the freedom to excel. We need to plan and give some consideration to the past and future, but there needs to be openness and sensitivity to what’s around us and a readiness to run with the ideas that come to us. A new venture can be the seedbed for personal growth and enriching life experiences.
After 7 years of “keeping on keeping on”, Blue Ocean Window Cleaning is clearly in the black. We will do $400k in sales and a profit margin around 25%.  The finances at home have stabilized. We now have 3 service vehicles on the road, added screen repair to our list of available services, and have seen sales double or triple, quarter over quarter, since we started in 2010. We love the people we serve and love being in business.
 So, you can do it!! Get in action, stay in the now, and listen for that still small voice that will guide you.

Paul Pate
