The benefits of having clean windows go well beyond aesthetics. Sure, clean windows look inviting from the outside and provide beautiful view of outdoors from the inside. But did you know that clean windows can help you save significant dollars from your electricity and gas bills?
Clean, shiny windows add to the energy efficiency of your facility (home or office) because they can reflect sun’s rays more efficiently than dirty, smeared windows. They allow more natural heat and light to enter indoors and sanitize the place. Your energy costs reduce as a result. Natural light has also been linked with decreased instances of Seasonal Affective Disorder.
Further, dirty glass panes, when left in the same state for long, develop stains and etching on their surface, damaging the windows. You may have to replace them all together, shelling out several hundred dollars in the process. And all of this just because the windows were not cleaned thoroughly and/or not cleaned regularly.
And while you could try to clean them on your own, it is a job best left for the professionals. Professional windows cleaners are equipped with the knowledge and to clean thoroughly, in a way that allows you to make your home more energy efficient. They know the technological know-hows including the use of right chemicals, cleaning techniques and pressure.
Here are some of the most compelling reasons to hire a professional window cleaning service.
Different types of windows need different cleaning mechanisms. Top-to-bottom sliding windows for instance, must always be cleaned on the top-half first. Only after both inside and outside panes are cleaned must you work on the lower half of the window. Further, different hand motions during cleaning provide different finish. Professional window cleaners have the knowledge and the experience to clean different windows and provide a streak-free, bright and shiny window with no smudges.
Thoroughly cleaned windows that help in energy efficiency must be cleaned using the right cleaning solutions, the correct squeegees and using the right tools. Professionals use pressure-based window washing systems to remove dirt, dust, bacteria, mold and other unwanted elements from every nook and corner of the window.
Professionals use de-ionized water, eco-friendly chemicals and water fed poles for meticulous cleaning. They have all the right tools to do the job efficiently including ladders and extension poles to reach top level windows. They bring their own equipment to the job so that you don’t have to invest in purchasing and then storing the tools and chemicals needed for a detailed cleaning job.
What is your plan for the hard-to-reach windows? Do you plan to risk your safety, possibly life, in cleaning them? Do you plan to let them be because they’re hard to reach? Professional window cleaners can safely reach inaccessible windows on complicated rooftops, overhangs and other elements of complex architecture in your building.
Any thorough job is a time taking job. Windows have a fixed frame that you cannot remove for convenient and easy cleaning. Glass panes need gentle handling, increasing the amount of time and care you need to put into the job. Plus, if you have several windows to clean, the job could take weeks!
Hand the task to professionals and you can make better use of your time. Further, their knowledge, experience and tools allow professional window cleaners to finish the job faster and better than you.
