Why Window Washing is Critical for Exterior Cleaning Your Chicago Home or Business

Critical window washing

Pressure washing is great for the outside of your home, but is that the same as window washing? While some companies lump the two together, they really should be two separate services.

Window washing for the outside of your home requires a cleaning method that should be used for more fragile surfaces. Power washing is perfect for durable concrete, but is it the right approach to take for fragile glass?

Dedicated industry experts will take precautions by using unique cleaning methods to clean your windows because the first priority should be not to cause damage. Safe but effective should be the key when it comes to cleaning your more delicate outdoor surfaces.

Make Window Cleaning a Priority

No matter how stunning the outside of your home looks, dirty windows can take away from that. In fact, your blemished windows are likely to become the focal point and steal the spotlight.

If you haven't made it a point to schedule window cleaning yet, here are some of the reasons you should make it a priority:

  • First, we can't ignore the desire to improve curb appeal. You want your home to look beautiful and cared for. Clean windows play a vital role in that.
  • Even if you don't think your windows are dirty, spots and streaks are bad enough. Proper window washing won't leave these blemishes behind.
  • Clean glass means unobstructed views. Rid your windows of spots, streaks, dirt, and other marks that get in the way of enjoying your view from the inside out.
  • Certain contaminants can leave small cuts on your glass. That means even if you finally get around to cleaning them, your glass and view quality will be greatly diminished.
  • Your windows are more than just the glass; they're made up of mechanisms that enable you to raise, lower, and maybe even swivel open your windows. When dirt and debris linger, they get in these mechanisms and can lead to repair needs.
  • Aside from views, windows allow natural light to fill your home. The dirtier the windows, the less light you get. This can eventually have implications on both your physical and emotional health because we need Vitamin D that sunlight provides.
