With more and more sunny days on the horizon, now is the perfect time to add window cleaning to your to-do list. While you might consider tackling this project yourself, we strongly suggest you bring in the pros for this particular home project. Here’s why you should hire a window cleaning professional.
As is the case with any home project, safety should be top of mind. Even with a single-story home, you’ll need a ladder to access hard-to-reach windows and give them a good scrub. A window cleaner’s training covers a lot more than just cleaning glass without streaks, and for good reason. Put your health and safety first and let the professional handle this risky task.
This goes without saying, but there are very few people who actually enjoy doing household chores. Window cleaning is one project that deserves to be delegated to the pros. Professionals will do a way better job in half the time, allowing you to focus on other things.
Don’t forget that window cleaning should never be a one-person job. Any project involving a ladder requires a second person to spot. Unless you have a friend or family member willing to commit to a day steadying a ladder, we don’t recommend you proceed with this project alone.
If you’ve ever had to replace multiple windows in your home, you’ll know they’re a major investment. That’s why window cleaning should not be taken lightly. Things like using the wrong cloth or dirty water can lead to permanent window damage, seriously impacting your home’s resale value. Professionals know how to properly treat your windows and ensure they leave them looking better after cleaning.
An experienced professional will also be trained to notice warning signs that your windows need attention. They’ll be able to spot anything from damaged caulk to bees and birds nests. By hiring a professional, you’ll rest assured that your investment is in good health.
This one may come as a surprise for many of you. Most people assume that doing work yourself is always cheaper than bringing in a professional to do it for you. In reality, specialists in home maintenance tasks like window cleaning are very competitively priced. Not to mention the fact that to do a decent job cleaning your windows yourself, you’ll need to buy specialty equipment, glass cleaner and a large ladder. For these reasons, we highly recommend getting a professional quote before committing to doing the project yourself.
