You love washing windows… said almost nobody, ever. If you’re having a hard time motivating to clean the windows, bring in some help! Sometimes it’s best to have a pro clean your panes. Here are nine great reasons you should put down the bucket and pass the squeegee to a qualified pro.
You’ve Got High Windows
No need to bust a collarbone getting your second story windows clean. There are able-bodied window pros with the right gear and the proper safety procedures to have your panes bright and shiny with no broken bones.
Sometimes you just want Sunday to be Sunday, not Wash All The Exterior Windows On The House Day. Take a break. Have a root beer. Let qualified professionals wash your windows quickly and well. Your only job is to bid and book online, the rest is easy like Sunday morning.
You Have Tinted Windows or Window Film
Definitely don’t DIY if you have specially treated windows to block UV rays, filter sun, or provide privacy. You invested in those nice windows, and you want them to serve their purpose for a long time. A window washing company that specializes in tinted windows or windows with film will save you from sadness (and sunburns) later on.
You Don’t Have The Right Equipment
Do you have non-ionic cleaner for your stained glass? Do you have a tall ladder for your upper windows? Do you have a streak-free drying solution? Instead of buying all the stuff that you probably won’t use again once you realize how painful washing all that glass really is, bring in a team whose sole job is making windows sparkle.
You Have Stained Glass
Specialty windows deserve special treatment. Not only do they deserve it, they live longer and look better as a result of it. If you have glass that’s tinted, colored, stained, or painted, bring in a pro who’s experienced with your needs. If you’re feeling especially geeky today, learn more about stained glass here.
You Have Bugs, Wasps, or Nests
Secluded windows make happy homes for hornets’ nests. They build between the pane and frame, get cozy up in there, then buzz and sting when you have the nerve to invade. Unless you’re ready to take on a hive full of stingers, call a team that can handle them in a no-nonsense style. They can safely remove nests and get your windows clean in one afternoon.
You Have Shutters & Blinds
Do you dread those endless wood slats covered in dust? Yes, yes you do. A pro window crew will clean those babies right up for you. Your dusty blinds and shutters will look so fresh and so clean without you meticulously wiping down each one.
You Have Tricky Windows
Different types of windows clean best with different techniques and different cleaning agents. If you have leaded windows (framed in metal, copper, etc.), you’ll want a specific solution that won’t harm the leaded frame. If you have double hung windows (those with sashes opening both up and down), you basically need a degree in engineering to get to all the glass. If you have storm windows, things get really complicated. Save time, effort, and sanity by delegating the task to skilled pros.
You Want Spot Free Windows
You spent six hours washing the windows (and that was just the interior). Although they’re not so grimy, they’re spotted like a cheetah. Dang. Lost time and lost effort. Double whammy. Beat the odds and bet on a window pro. You’ll win best windows on the block every time.
If you’re tempted to clean some of your simpler and more accessible windows yourself, remember not to use sharp scraping tools (we’re looking at you, razor blades) to remove stains or paint, and avoid washing windows in direct sun. Direct sun results in quicker drying time, which for you means more likelihood of streaking.
