Are you getting ready for the holiday season? Are you done with the hot summer months and want to clean the house from all the sand, dirt and summer mess? These are all great reasons to get your home cleaned and one area that should never be overlooked is the windows! The windows are a huge part of your house and you want to ensure that they are clean. When you have dirty windows the view in and out of the house will be obscured. The cleaner the windows the nicer your home will look. The interesting part is that this is a much larger job than many people realize. The time it takes to get to each level of the home and all the way around can be exhausting. When you go to clean your windows there are many things that you should know before you start.
Windows Are Two Sided!: You might look at the window and think that the mess is in the outside of the window. It is true that the sediment, dirt and debris on the outside of the windows might be worse but the inside needs to be cleaned as well. The problem that you will see is that when you choose to clean the outside only the inside dirt will stand out. You also might think that cleaning the inside of the windows is a simpler task and a great DIY chore. If you think this will save you money or that you can do a better job you might want to rethink. It is always a good idea to have the professional window cleaning service handle both sides of the window glass and surrounds.
Rain Doesn't Clean Windows: There are some people that assume that the rain will be enough to clean the outside of your windows. Once a good rain comes down the windows will not only be far from clean but they have most likely collected more of a mess. The rain often times brings with it wind that brings dirt and dust as well. The rain will also run down the side of the house which also has dirt that will drain down the window leaving deposits. You will still want to have the windows cleaned professionally after there is any kind of adverse weather.
Hard Water Stains Glass & Can Damage Windows: Another aspect of the dirt that is in the windows is the hard water that can be left behind. This can come from hard water from sprinklers or even the hose. The hard water is a problem and has sediment that will cause damage to the windows over time. It is important to have the hard water cleared off the windows to ensure that they last longer.
Always Clean Windows, Sills & Tracks Last: A mistake that people make is to clean the windows before they have the rest of the home cleaned. The windows should be done last to ensure that the other cleaners are not left on the windows after the cleaning has been done.
