Heat Efficiency

Hiring professional window cleaners is a big investment, but an important one also. Did you know that having clean windows can actually save you tons on your energy bill?

If dirt, grime, and dust is left on your windows it blocks the sun’s UV rays and doesn’t allow your home to generate the free heat the sun has to offer. This over time will cost you hundreds on energy bills to heat your home.

Curb Appeal 

Nonetheless, your windows are a focal point of your home. Clean windows allow sunlight in your home which brightens it up and contributes to the overall curb appeal.

DIY Tips

If you are interested in cleaning the more accessible windows in your home by yourself, remember not to use tools that can scratch or scrap the windows that could result in damages or repairs. Also, avoid washing windows in direct sunlight because although it may dry the windows faster, it means increased streaking.

Homes that reside near saltwater may encounter more maintenance due to the salt content within the air. Thus, being located on a busy road may result in a higher level of debris on your residential windows. Moreover, the cost of window cleaning on the first two stories of your home are generally the same, but when you exceed two stories the cost can go up per pane on stories three and four.
