“How often should I have my windows cleaned?” It is a question that our Gorillas face almost daily. The answer is twice annually. All across the Metro Vancouver area, property owners are asking the secret to maintaining clean windows. Regular cleaning can be difficult, particularly for those windows above ground level. As tough as it might seem to keep up a streak-free shine, exterior window cleaning benefits more than just looks. Hiring professional Vancouver window cleaning services means avoiding unnecessary property damage and getting the full lifespan out of your glass. Our Gorillas are able to scrub away stains from residential, commercial and strata spaces.
The Importance of Professional Cleaning
The world outside is an unpredictable place, which means just about anything can end up on your windows. A quick wipe down of glass surfaces is included in most janitorial services but that does not guarantee amazing results. From dust and dirt to bird droppings, there is no end to what can be splattered across your panes, sills and window frames. Spots, streaks and discolourations can be an eyesore but they can also mean damage. Windows are built to be tough, especially in environments with a temperamental climate. Glass is a porous material, meaning instead of just sitting on surfaces, foreign items can actually seep down inside panes. From here, glass is weakened little by little until it inevitably breaks. A broken window (especially in winter) is big trouble. Instead of waiting for the worst-case scenario, let a Gorilla create a window cleaning program that works for you.
When it comes to your glass, the quality of results lies in the tools and technique that you use. A heavy hand or pressure washer can break glass while basic window cleaning products can mean subpar results. In the past, residential window cleaning has been carried out by hand. Chores like gutter cleaning have always relied on rickety ladders and rubber gloves, but this doesn’t need to be the case for your window cleaning needs. Plenty of Vancouver residents try to take on their own window cleaning but this just isn’t a good plan. Newspapers are said to be the best method to eliminating streaks while common blue cleaning solutions are a dime a dozen. The only thing that this method is good for, is creating static cling. Friction doesn’t wipe away dirt, it invites airborne material in. This means windows look dirty almost immediately after you finish cleaning them. This goes for ground floor glass, as well as those that are higher up. A pressure wash might seem like a way to reach these higher windows but this pressure can mean pre-mature breakage. Our Gorillas are able to clean windows up to four storeys safely, and that’s inside and out!
