Over time, glass can diminish and weaken the panes but when you have your windows cleaned by a professional, you will be more aware of when your window panes are deteriorating and replace them as needed.  There are many contaminates that can wreak havoc on the glass and while this doesn’t happen overnight, it can be the reason why your panes are cracking or breaking easily. These factors include:

  • Sunlight
  • Acid rain
  • Sea spray
  • Hard minerals that are sprinkled on the window by a sprinkler system
  • Other sprays such as silicone, mortar, paint, and more

The most common threats to glass windows are the hard water and mineral deposits. This is why it’s important to have your windows cleaned professionally. When water runs off of services that are prefabricated, such as painted siding or wood stain, these mineral deposits will leave the surface and run down the glass over time. This can make it difficult to clean the window properly yourself, without the professional window washing that is recommended at least two times a year.

Window washing done by professionals is not always the cheapest way to clean the windows but, you will receive courteous professional service when you hire the professionals. Some services offered by professionals include:

  • Routine window washing and cleaning: When you clean your windows on a timely routine, you are able to protect your window and extend the life. Removing the dirt, dust, and other elements that can harm the windows over time can justify the expense.
  • Washing the window professional yields better results than if you tried to do it yourself. Using specially formulated window cleaner that can’t be purchased at any store will give the professionals an advantage to cleaning. If your windows are very dirty, you may spend an entire day doing something that professionals can do in a matter of a couple of hours.
  • Professional window cleaners can offer more affordable options when it comes to window cleaning. Depending on the services you choose, your cleaning can cost a minimal amount of money and the results will last. Professionals arrive with the proper equipment needed to clean windows. If you try and do it yourself, you may find that you don’t have everything you will need.

This will affect the results of your window cleaning.
  • Hiring a professional saves you time. You have a lot to accomplish in a day so it’s only fair that you hire a professional to help when you can.
  • Additional services can be offered when you hire a professional. Services such as pressure washing, house washing, gutter cleaning, roof spraying, drapery cleaning on site, painting your home, or home repairs and snow removal are just a few of the services that professional window cleaners may offer.

Need for Gutter Cleaning

Rain can create havoc with the foundation and walls, if the gutters are not clean. Basically, gutters serve two purposes-to help your home look nice and clean and it also protects your home. The main purpose for having gutters to direct the water run-off from the roof to somewhere away from your home in order to prevent any flooding from occurring in the basement or from being absorbed into the walls in your home.

Save on Repairs Later

With proper gutter cleaning, you can maintain the value of your home and avoid making costly repairs in the future. It’s always a good idea to perform gutter cleaning at least two times a year, more if you have trees close by or falling debris in your area. You should always prepare to clean the gutters once in the spring after all the rain and snow from the winter and again in the fall to prepare for all the snowfall that is likely to occur through spring.

At Gutters & Windows, we perform the window and gutter cleaning by hand to ensure that all debris is removed and your windows and gutters are left spotless and clean.

Cleaning Windows

When it is about getting maximum natural light and sunlight, clean windows are a must. Professional window cleaners clean windows by hand using squeegees and cotton cloths. This allows them to do a good job and leave your windows streak free. The professional window cleaners will come to your home with all necessary equipment based on the type of windows you have in your home. Windows should be cleaned in both inside and outside in the fall and again within six or seven months. Cleaning only the outside windows does not help but both sides of the panes need to be cleaned.

Window washing can begin immediately because there is no wrong time to have your windows cleaned. Most customers wonder if cleaning the windows will be a waste of time once it rains or even during the winter months but rain will not have any effect on the windows. Things that do affect the clarity of windows include dirt, dust, leaves, grass, and pollen, to name a few. Rain will remove the particles from the window however it will also leave a rain drop pattern behind when it dries.

Our Window Cleaning Method

We’ve been working on updating a bathroom and ordered some mirrors. While the glass guys were here installing the mirror, my husband, Randy, got to chatting with them about how their business was going. During their conversation he happened to ask them what they use for cleaning glass. They shared a simple recipe for what they’ve found to work. They swore by it. We had already tried just using a simple combination of vinegar and water, but they learned a trick from a commercial window cleaner: add a little dish detergent to the vinegar/water mixture. Really? That simple? It was new to us, and it sounded much too easy.

So we tried it (or should I say Randy tried it) over the weekend. Randy set out just to test a few windows and the next thing I knew he had worked clear around the house, and was already working on some of the upstairs windows as well. There was an immediate difference, and so much easier than what we had tried in the past.
