But there are other surprising benefits when you book a routine cleaning program. Here we give you four good reasons why you should hire a professional!
1. Extend the life of your windows
Dirt and debris on windows can cause irreversible damage. Over time, dirt and dust can actually etch into the glass and cause scratches. Removing corrosive contaminants has obvious positive implications for the lifespan of your windows. Old aluminum screens will also gradually deteriorate over time, etching deposit patterns onto your windows in the way that lime deposits in your shower. These are not only unsightly, but deposits also make your windows more prone to cracks and chips in the future.
2. Spot general problems around the house
Educated eyes combing your property around the windows can help you notice any problem areas before they become more serious. Things like poorly-fitted screens, broken seals, sashes that are painted shut, rotting sills, or damaged and dysfunctional windows can turn into a big headache if not solved in the early stages.
3. Keep bugs at bay
Bees and hornets typically erect their nests behind window shutters, while wasps love moving into storm windows. Ladybugs also like to settle into window channels, making windows tough to operate. A professional can spot and solve these issues keeping you and your family safe.
4. Window cleaning is a lot of work
Now that you are aware of how good clean windows are for you and your home, you may be thinking, “why should I hire someone when I can clean them myself?” For one, window cleaning is a lot of work when you don’t have the proper equipment, and it can be dangerous if your house has more than one floor. When windows are cleaned unproperly, they end up with spots, streaks, or residual films, and that looks as bad as a dirty window. So, if you only clean your windows a couple of times a year, don’t you want the job done right? We even have a lift, so we can clean those hard to reach, pesky ones.
