Why should I have my windows cleaned by a professional?

Clean windows can make your home brighter and improve its overall appearance.

1. Saving time

Cleaning your windows can be a time-consuming project. A professional window cleaning service can finish a project that would take a homeowner five hours in less than half the time.

2. Spotting general problems

A professional window washer can identify problems like sashes that are painted shut, ill-fitting window screens, wood rot on windowsills, or damaged or non-functional windows.

Spotting the problems early can often save you a big expense later.

3. Removing insect infestations

Bees and hornets sometimes build nests behind window shutters, and wasps can build paper nests between three-piece storm windows. Ladybugs can also build nests in channels, making the windows hard to operate.

4. Extending the life of a window

Old aluminum screens left in place for years gradually etch a pattern of deposits on the glass, much like lime deposits in the shower. The etched glass is not only unattractive, but it is also more prone to cracks and chips.

A professional window washer can restore the glass and extend your window’s life with a treatment of muriatic acid.

5. Providing the right window cleaning supplies and tools

Professional window cleaners can ensure that the right products are used to clean glass without damaging it.

If you have leaded glass or stained glass, you may be unintentionally damaging it by using an ammonia-based window cleaner. With repeated use, ammonia-based cleaner can cloud leaded and stained glass windows, and the damage can’t be repaired.

Professional window washers also have the right equipment, such as ladders and telescoping window-washing tools, to safely clean hard-to-reach windows.

Having your windows cleaned annually plays a major role in the lifespan of your window. Over time, debris in the atmosphere collects on your windows, which can cause a loss of transparency and make glass more fragile. Clean windows prevent frame weathering that may decrease the lifespan of your window. Clean windows also allow more natural light into your house, reducing the amount of lamps and overhead lighting needed, potentially lowering your electric bills.
