Your windows are the eyes to your home. Someone said that not too long ago on a popular TV show. If you believe it too, then you’ll want to be sure to take care of them so they’ll look great for years to come! Here are a few reasons to hire a pro when it comes time to clean them up!
We all have our areas of expertise. Unless yours involves windows and window sills, the window cleaning pro is probably better equipped to identify problems that need to be addressed and possibly corrected. For instance, condensation forming along the bottom or in the corners of the glass. According to Popular Mechanics, this means that “your house is not adequately ventilated or that there is a high moisture level in your home.” This is just one problem that a pro can help you diagnose.
Extend Your Window’s Lifespan
Most of us probably don’t realize that glass is porous. With that being said, it’s easy for dirt and grime to become embedded into the glass, cutting down on the window’s lifespan. A recent article on No More Dirt’s website said, “With regular window cleaning, dirt, grit, and debris will be removed so that your windows last longer. Outside window washing is just as important as inside, as dirt comes from all angles.”
The Right Tool(s) for the Job
If you’re in luck and have a one-story home, odds are you can get to each of your windows in order to clean the exteriors. If you’re like most of us and live in a two-story home, then you’ll need a little help reaching those hard to access windows. While you can go out and rent equipment such as boom lifts, or scissor lifts, that adds quite a bit of work and cost to your project. A professional window cleaner will have all of the gear required to reach those out of the way windows. Plus, they’ll have the best solvents to clean your windows regardless of what type of buildup you’ve got going on!
Safety should always be your top concern when taking on jobs you don’t do on a regular basis. Not only do you have a chance of falling from a ladder or from the roof, you’ll be exposed to power lines, loose shingles, etc. Why take the chance to save a few dollars? A locally owned professional window cleaner can take care of your entire home for less than you might imagine.
