Regardless of how well a window is manufactured, it’s important to remember that cleaning the window on a regular basis is equally important to maintaining the integrity of the window itself. Not cleaning your windows at least twice a year can lead to accumulated dirt and dust, affects heat efficiency and eventually causes glass degradation. And if your windows aren’t operating at 100 percent, you risk higher energy costs overall, allergens flowing and of course, dirty windows make for an unpleasant view when you look out on a beautiful day.
Windows are an important part of your home. When they start getting gross and streaky it’s time to clean them. Interior windows can be cleaned relatively easily. Exterior windows can be trickier. Some are difficult or dangerous to get to. Others are awkward. On a beautiful weekend afternoon you’d rather be out enjoying life than thinking about the grime on your windows.
Professional window cleanings offer a number of benefits including saving you time and the ability to get to hard to reach areas.
Certain times of the year are better for outdoor home maintenance. During these times, you should get reacquainted with your gutters. Especially after a difficult winter, it’s important to check your gutters as soon as you can. During the colder times of the year when you can’t do outdoor maintenance, you can always check the condition of your windows. Understanding how to perform checkups and necessary repairs can save you plenty of money on replacements.
