Many homeowners choose to get their windows cleaned once or twice a year. They usually get this done during the spring and summer months because it seems more practical. What they may not realize is having their windows cleaned during the fall can be very beneficial to their homes. During this transition season, leaves and debris fall from trees more frequently and cause windows to become dirty more quickly. You can read more about the benefits of fall cleaning in this article on Homeclick.com. It’s “enlightening”. Along with this, window screens will act as large filters that will collect and hold dust and dirt that will also cause windows to become disgusting! YIKES! There are many reasons why you should continue getting your windows cleaned even in colder months.
For instance, did you know that your windows are the largest source of heat loss in colder months? This is due to the fact that dirty windows will block the sun’s rays and not allowing the warmth to come in. When there isn’t much sunlight entering your home, you will be compensating for it by using more heat, causing you to pay more. This is something that can easily be fixed by simply having your windows cleaned. Don’t take our word for it, check out this article on GAIAM Life about dirty windows.
