No room is complete without a window. Even a bit of natural light can make a world of difference to any indoor space but clean panes can also boost your curb appeal from outside. Maintaining an inviting property is a lot of work and your glass might be pulling more weight than you realize. If you can’t keep up with dirt and debris, call a Gorilla for your Acton window cleaning needs.
Whether at home or at work, window panes have a huge impact on the inner workings of your structures. Over time, dirty windows lead to weakened materials which can drive up utility bills. It can be tough to see the relationship between the two but clean surfaces improve heating, natural light keeps the need for artificial light down – regular cleaning means great results across the board.
What Do Dirty Windows Mean For You?
The glass that makes up windows around residential and commercial properties is a porous material. These panes might feel solid to the touch but they are made up of hundreds of microscopic pores. With every day that goes by, dirt, debris, dust and even bird droppings land and sit on surfaces. These unwanted items creep into pores and degrade glass from the inside out.
As glass becomes weakened, it is subject to breakage – particularly as weather begins to change. A quick drop in temperature can crack windows without any warning. What could be worse than a cracked window in frigid temperatures? The trick to avoiding unnecessary damage is expert window cleaning, tools and technique.
Acton Window Washing: Getting Results
It is easy to see when glass is in need of a scrub down but there is a right way and a wrong way to do that. While soapy water might be good for cleaning off counter tops and cupboards, this method is not the best option for your windows. There are plenty of DIY methods available online but a spray bottle of white vinegar or microfiber cloths is not enough to get results.
Simply scrubbing away with hot water and a rag or paper towel might remove larger surface stains like bird droppings but these methods cannot keep glass lint-free. Rapid wiping not only leaves streaks behind but the friction creates static cling which draws lint and airborne material right back to surfaces as soon as you are done cleaning.
In addition to using the right tools to do the cleaning, it is important to have the right tools to get the job done safely. Reaching windows at the ground level might seem simple enough but getting a top to bottom clean on a picture window involves a ladder, which always means a bit of risk. When you want to protect your property and yourself – call a Gorilla for safe and efficient cleaning.
