Here are some reasons you should consider working with an expert window cleaning service to keep your windows functioning properly and letting the sun shine in.
- Conserving time
Cleaning your windows can be a time-consuming project, states Ms. Smeltzer. “We can finish a job that would take a property owner 5 hours in less than half the time.”
- Identifying general issues
A professional window washer can spot potential problems like screens that don’t fit the window, windows that can’t be opened because the windows that are painted shut or wood rot on windowsills, or other damage to the windows that prevent you from using them properly. Spotting the issues early can potentially save you an expense later on.
- Eliminating insect problems
Wasps, hornets and bees often build nests behind window shutters Wasps in particular can construct paper nests between the sections of a storm window. Other insects such as ladybugs can build a nest in channels, making the windows difficult to open or operate.
- Extending the life of a window
Similar to deposits in your shower, aluminum screens which are old and left in place for years slowly etch a pattern of deposits on the glass. The etched glass is not only unattractive, but it is more vulnerable to fractures and chips.
An expert window washer can restore the glass and extend your window’s life with a treatment of muriatic acid.
- Offering the right window cleaning supplies and tools
Professional window cleaners can guarantee that the right products are utilized to clean the glass in windows that are environmentally friendly without damaging the glass.
If you have stained or leaded glass, you may be unintentionally damaging it using a window cleaner that is ammonia-based. With extended use, this type of cleaner can cloud the glass windows, and the damage cannot be repaired.
Expert window washers likewise have the best equipment, such as ladders with grips, extension hoses and telescoping window-washing tools, to securely clean hard-to-reach windows on second floors or high ceilings.
