A professional window cleaning service is an essential part of home maintenance, ensuring both the interior and exterior of your property looks at its very best.
Without this, grime will build up and it could even result in damage to the actual glass, plus gazing through sparkling windows is so much more enjoyable than peering through dingy panes.
Regular window cleaning should be a priority for any homeowner.
You want your window cleaner to be reliable. It’s no use booking someone to clean your windows for them to not turn up when you need them. Ideally, the more regular the service the better. You may want to book for a monthly or bi-monthly service as this will be most effective in both looking after your windows and keeping them looking sparklingly clean.
You also want them to be cost effective. You don’t have to pay the earth for a window cleaner but you need to ensure that they can do the job to the highest standards.
Also safety is a priority. By choosing a reputable and professional local company you can be so much more reassured that your property will be in safe hands and that they won’t employ anyone who will invade your privacy.
Ideally, your window cleaner will be familiar with the neighbourhood and the chances are that other people in your area will already be using the service, giving you further reassurance about their reliability and trustworthiness. For example Direct Cleaning Group has been cleaning the windows of homes throughout the North West including Ellesmere Port, Merseyside, Cheshire and Wirral for over 10 years and their reputation has been built on recommendations from many satisfied customers.
Your window cleaning service needs to be up to speed with all the modern and traditional skills required to do a thorough job. This can be everything from having the most up to date equipment to being knowledgeable about types of glass and how to clean them.
Ensure that the correct products are used to clean glass, so they don’t cause any damage. If you have leaded glass or stained glass this may be unintentionally ruined by using an ammonia-based product – something that an amateur window cleaner may not know about.
They’ll have the right equipment which is necessary for safely cleaning hard-to-reach windows.
They will use a whole range of tools and techniques. The water fed pole is particularly effective – it feeds purified water from a water tank up a hole, which then brushes any dirt away without leaving streaks or smears. These poles are available in a range of lengths, with the longest being around 70 ft. The big advantage is that window cleaners can do a brilliant job without having to climb up potentially hazardous ladders.
As well as modern techniques they will be able to call on the timeless usefulness of traditional cleaning methods. Traditional window cleaning is an excellent way to clean interior windows and will be the best option for fragile or very old leaded windows that need much more delicate care. For some instances windows may be too heavily soiled to be cleaned using a water-fed pole system, for example if they’ve not been cleaned for quite a while, or for new-builds on a building site.
A professional’s skills will also extend to the ‘health’ of the entire window and they’ll be able to identify problems that might be costly later such as wood rot on window sills, or damaged window frames and they’ll be the first to discover if you have other problems such as an insect infestation. They will also be able to do other window related tasks such as professional gutter cleaning and conservatory cleaning to help you to maintain the condition and appearance of your home.
The advantages of professional residential window cleaning outweigh the costs. You may think about adding it to your list of household chores but the likelihood is it will be one of those jobs that you keep putting off. Granted, it may not be as cheap as doing it yourself, it will be much more cost-effective in the long run.
