Water Leaves Windows Streaked
Windows in your home located in New York can be cloudy. On a hot and sunny day, the water can evaporate more quickly which can leave streaks. It’s very important that the windows are cleaned on a regular basis in your home. If you leave them unclean for a long period of time, then the debris in the air can land on the windows and the glass, being porous, can absorb this debris and then become a stain that is permanently etched within. The glass build up can leave your windows permanently scarred and your view obstructed. If your home is located in a wooded area in New York or if it’s located near a construction site, the dirt can blow over to your windows and begin to pile up.
DIY Window Cleaning
Homeowners that clean their own windows should tackle this chore during a hot sunny day when there is no chance of precipitation and the water used to clean the windows will dry quickly leaving fewer streaks. However, it’s also important to consider that many people are injured each year due to ladder falls, not to mention the buckets of soapy water and the awkward positions you will find yourself into when stretching to reach every corner while holding on to the ladder.
It may be more beneficial for you to call a professional New York window cleaning service to clean your windows instead.

When hiring a professional, look for guarantees that they offer which might give you a peace-of-mind. For example, if the professionals come out and clean your windows, they may give you a certain amount of guarantee that they will come back if you see streaks for a certain period of time.
