You should have your windows cleaned regularly to have an unobstructed view of nature, improve energy efficiency (by allowing natural light in) and increasing the life span of your windows. Window cleaning can be DIY or professional depending on your budget or preference. However, hiring a professional window cleaning company is the best option because it comes with numerous benefits. It is important to consider the level of experience, insurance and bonding, warranty, cleaning products used and reviews of a cleaning company before hiring. This will help you narrow down your choices and make the right choice.
Some of the reasons why you need professional services to clean your windows instead of DIY include:
Cleaning your windows can be a time-consuming task especially if you don’t have the right equipment or experience. Professionals own the right equipment (at least Dutch Window Cleaning Artist does), experience, and skills needed in the window cleaning process. Therefore, hiring a professional window cleaning company will save you a considerable amount of time. Furthermore, since you will not be a part of the cleaning process, you can use that time to do other house chores, spend time with friends or family or continue working.
Professionals Spot Other Problems That You Might Miss
Professional window cleaners are usually trained and experienced to spot other general problems like ill-fitted window screens, damaged/non-functional windows, sashes that are painted shut and wood rot on your window sills among other things. When these problems are spotted early, they can save you a considerable amount of money because you can fix them before the condition gets worse. Doing it yourself or hiring a handyman who does not possess any skills or experience in window cleaning cannot help you spot such problems and thus professional window cleaning is the best option.
Professionals Remove Insect Infestations
Besides offering window screen cleaning services, professional companies also provide window rail cleaning services to ensure thorough cleaning especially if your windows have not been cleaned by an expert for a long time. Sometimes insects can build nests on your windows not only predisposing you to potential dangers but also making it hard to operate the windows. Expert window cleaners know where these insects might hide and build their nests and hence they know how to remove insect infestations from your windows. Common insects that infest windows include hornets, ladybugs, bees, and wasps.
