7 Reasons to Get a Residential Window Cleaning

By Tyler Kirk | Window Cleaning

Are you thinking about improving the look of your home?

Maybe you've invested tons of money in finally buying your dream home. Or you're looking to sell your current home. Perhaps you're simply looking to improve the look of your house.

Whatever your reason for increasing the curb appeal of your home, cleaning your windows should be first and foremost on your list.

But before you break out a ladder and start scrambling up the side of your home, keep reading. We're breaking down the 7 essential reasons that you should leave the cleaning to the professionals with a residential window cleaning.

1. You'll Stay Safe

Climbing up on a ladder to clean your windows is risky regardless of your age or level of fitness.

Even if you're agile, fit, and have no fear of heights, accidents can always happen. Your ladder could slip, you could lose your footing, or any number of other accidents could occur.

If you do fall, it can result in serious injury. You could face medical bills, have to take time off of work, and a lengthy recovery period, not to mention the pain.

If you are more at risk for falls, older, or out of shape, the risk of injury is even greater.

Investing in residential window cleaning takes the risks out of your hands. Leave the high-climbing and risk-taking to the professionals with the experience it takes to stay safe.

2. You'll Stay Healthy

Cleaning your windows may be a regular part of your spring cleaning. But while you may be cleaning your home in the process, you could actually be hurting your health.

Many household cleaning products contain chemicals that can be dangerous to breathe in. When you're high up on a ladder cleaning your windows by hand and spraying on cleaner, you're likely ingesting some of the sprays.

You could be unknowingly ingesting phthalates, chlorine, ammonia, and more.

Experts in residential window cleaning know how to protect themselves from these health risks.

3. You Won't Have to Buy Supplies

Many people bulk at hiring any type of professional cleaner because they think that they're saving money by doing it themselves. But you may actually be spending more than you would by paying for residential window cleaning.

After all, there are several supplies you'll need to clean your own windows. A ladder, cleaner, and squeegees are just a few. Plus, none of these are one-time buys. You'll need replacements when you run out or when they become out-dated and no longer effective.

When you pay for residential window cleaning, you'll pay a single rate. No more worrying about getting supplies and cleaning solutions!

4. More Free Time

Even if you have a small home and just a few windows, cleaning them can be a time-consuming process. If you have lots of windows or if your home is several stories high, it can take you hours to finish the job.

If you live in an area that gets a lot of dust, you likely need to clean your windows several times a month in order to keep them looking great. This could end up cutting out several days of free time every year.

Spend your time doing what you want, instead of cleaning, by investing in residential window cleaning.

5. A Professional Clean

Maybe you choose to clean your windows on your own.

You'll buy all of the supplies and a good ladder. You'll take hours out of your day to climb way up high and painstakingly clean each one. You'll take on the health risks and hope to avoid injury.

But even if you do each of these things, you may still not end up with the clean, sparkling windows that you're dreaming of.

Only a professional residential window cleaning will net you the awesome results that you want. Keep your home looking its best by leaving this job up the professionals.

6. Cut Down on Bugs

One added bonus to professional window cleaning that many people don't think about is bug reduction.

There are many types of bugs that set up residence on windows sills, behind shutters, and even between the glass and the screens of your windows.

Not only are these bugs a nuisance, but they could also be damaging your windows.

Professional window cleaners are pros on finding wasp nests, beehives, and even lady bug nests hidden in shutters and on window sills.

While they're cleaning your windows, they'll also be getting rid of these nests before they can grow into major problems that require hiring a pricey exterminator.

7. Extend the Life of Your Windows

Regular, effective residential window cleaning can actually extend the life of your windows. That's because it removes corrosive debris, which can scratch or otherwise corrode your windows.

Old aluminum screens can also break down and leave streaks that can be tough to get rid of if they aren't treated right away.

Besides just protecting your windows from damage over time, getting professional help can extend the life of your windows and save you money in other ways as well.

Every time you climb up to clean your windows, you risk damaging them. If you put the ladder in the wrong place, you could damage your home's siding or window sill. If you press too hard while cleaning, you risk cracking your windows.

Any of this damage could end up costing you hundreds of dollars to replace.

You invested a lot of money into installing your windows. Make the most of your investment by doing everything that you can to keep your windows looking great for years to come.
