Whether it concerns your home or an office building, the state of a property’s windows says a lot about you as the owner. But keeping your windows spotless can be a challenge, especially if the property in question happens to be a massive one or has multiple storeys. More often than not, most people lack the time, energy, enthusiasm, patience and guts to clean high windows. If you happen to be busy, it would be most practical to hire a window cleaning expert instead.
Benefits of Hiring a Professional
- Cleaning windows is not a walk in the park. Unless it concerns a small one-storey house with few windows, the task can prove to be challenging, time-consuming and dangerous all on its own. Imagine how exhaustingly long it will take you to clean the windows of your three-storey home without expert help. Even if you can spare enough of your time and are physically able to safely reach all windows, there is no assurance that you can achieve the same standard of cleanliness a paid professional can provide.
- Hiring an experienced specialist with good background and with license and insurance is your safest bet. Never settle for anything less lest you end up paying for the medical bills of uninsured workers in the possible event of accidents and injuries during the cleaning process on your property.
- A cleaning service will have the necessary cleaning equipment to accomplish the job in flying colours. However, a bucket of soap and a squeegee is not enough to remove water stains, deep-seated grime, accumulated dust, tree sap build-ups, pest droppings and whatnot. Furthermore, you might be surprised that using a squeegee on a window without leaving ugly streaks after drying is not as easy as it seems. While you may end up exhausted and frustrated after a long day’s work on a high ladder, a pro is trained in this deceptively simple skill.
- A professional window cleaner has enough experience, and seasoned attention to detail regarding identifying other issues such as broken seals, ill-fitted screens, decaying window sills, dysfunctional and damaged windows, sashes painted shut, and not to mention pest infestations.
- Hiring an expert will save you a lot of money in the long haul. Keeping your windows well-maintained will certainly improve their longevity, keeping chips, cracks and discolouration at bay.
Why You Should Invest in Regular Window Maintenance
Whether it involves your home or business, keeping your windows immaculate will benefit you socially and financially. After all, guests at your home or potential clients at your shop won’t be impressed if your windows are filthy.
More than mere water stains and grime, windows are also prone to pest infestation. Window shutters are a favourite nesting spot for hornets and bees. It’s also no surprise to find wasps nesting in storm windows and ladybugs in window channels. There is nothing more alarming than opening the window for a breath of fresh air but being attacked by angry insects living there. Or worse, finding out that an escape window is stuck and unyielding during an emergency.
Cliche as it may sound, prevention is better than cure. A window cleaning service is a necessary investment that prevents a costly window replacement or, more disturbingly, a shot of antihistamine for a nasty bee sting.
