Most homeowners fail to notice the significance of having clean windows. This has led to a continued neglect of window cleaning throughout America. It can be attributed to several factors.
The biggest factor is the reality that window cleaning is actually a tiresome, annoying, dirty, and a tedious exercise. By virtue, dragging a ladder around, holding a bucket and several towels doesn’t qualify to be a fun exercise. In addition to this, the time-consuming nature, level of difficulty and the risk of this exercise poses has led to many homeowners to distant themselves completely from this very important task. Yet, if the homeowners decide to undertake the exercise himself, the streaks and dirt deposits left behind after a hard and long day’s work leaves many frustrated and discouraged.
Seeing the above, it isn’t that difficult to figure out why homeowners tend to distant themselves. However, it doesn’t hurt to just recruit a professional window cleaner to do it for you.
Just neglecting can cause more harm. The harm from unclean windows ranges from damage to window panes, limitation of letting in natural light, health risks – caused by molds and the general degradation of the optimum aesthetic value of your home.
The aggregate risks posed by unclean windows should, therefore, motivate a homeowner to practice regular cleaning but again, other homeowners fail to hire a professional because of the associated costs of cleaning. Those who don’t understand the nature of cleaning costs may feel like they have been ripped off.
The following guides one to comprehend the cleaning costs quoted and decide if hiring a professional cleaner is the best solution for him/her or not.
The biggest determinant is the cleaning process. If you have two potential companies for your cleaning choice, check their complete cleaning process. If company A and Company B charge the same price but company B has added an extra process to their cleaning process, then company B has the best value for money.
The following are the common window cleaning processes.
- Scrubbing and rubbing the windows well to remove any grease, grime, and other known contaminants.
- Squeegeeing the glass thoroughly to remove all forms of dirt and water from the crevices of the window panes. It is done using specialized equipment.
- Wiping the edges and sills of the window to make it dry and clean.
The three processes ensure that windows are thoroughly cleaned and virtually all companies follow these processes.
Choosing a window cleaning company can also be based on the quoted price. Ensure that you choose the one charging the least cost.
