If you’ve been neglecting your windows’ appearance, it’s time to step up and notice. You may have gotten used to your dirty, smudged windows, but your neighbors, guests, customers and clients are definitely noticing. Clean windows are a source of pride in your exteriors, as they show others you care to upkeep your home, store front or office and put your best face forward.
However, it’s about more than appearance when you decide to get your windows professionally cleaned. You can boost your curb appeal and property value, as well as preserve the glass itself and achieve better energy efficiency. Here are five reasons why you should have your windows cleaned on a regular basis, especially by a professional.
Professionally-cleaned windows will:
1. Prevent Glass Degradation
Acid rain and hard water can build up along with debris on your windows, sills, and frames. Not only is this buildup unsightly, it can damage your glass and surrounding areas over time, prompting the need to replace your windows sooner than you would have to otherwise.
That’s because particles of dirt can get into the pores of the glass, leading to contamination and corrosion. It may start out as light scratches or cracks, but in time, an unmaintained window can suffer structural damage as well. Regularly cleaning your windows will ensure a longer lifespan for your windows and exteriors overall. And when you hire a professional to hand wash your windows and frames (like we do here at Southern Flow Cleaning Solutions), you can go a step further in preserving the integrity and appearance of your delicate windows.
2. Improve Curb Appeal
Regular window washing will ensure your home always looks its best. Your neighbors will appreciate it, as will your guests. This is especially important if you plan to sell your home in the near future, as potential buyers will pull up to the curb, notice the pride you take in your exteriors, and be more likely to take a further look.
3. Keep Mold at Bay
Cleaning the interiors of your windows regularly will keep dirt particles and mold at bay, leading to better indoor air quality. Mold can quickly grow in the corners and nooks and crannies of your windows and frames, posing a health threat to your family in the form of allergic reactions, asthma flare-ups, wheezing, shortness of breath and more. Long-term exposure can result in serious lung conditions.
4. Keep You Safe
If you have a multiple story home, the thought of getting up on a ladder to wash your windows can seem daunting. And for good reason: this can pose a fall risk that can lead to serious safety consequences. When you hire a professional, they come equipped with the right equipment and supplies to ensure an efficient yet safe process for all, allowing you to stay safely inside while they work!
5. Give You a Better View
You may have tried wiping down your windows in the past, to little effect. Streaks and dust accumulation are common when you attempt a half-hearted window cleaning project yourself. A professional will take the time to thoroughly clean your windows with the right supplies so that no streaks or dust will remain. The result is a crystal clear view of the outdoors, whether to your backyard and the kids in the pool, or your front yard looking out onto the street. You won’t believe the difference, and you will wonder why you lived so long with dull windows.
Now that you know all the benefits of professional window cleaning on a regular basis, it’s time to make an appointment.
