Professional Window Cleaning
In our homes, windows make the first impression. The state of a home’s windows reflects on the whole house and probably, the owner of the house itself. Besides this, looking out of grimy windows can be depressing. The views from your home may be spectacular and your garden may be beautifully landscaped but if you can’t see them because your windows are streaky or cloudy, then you might as well not have them at all.
The Benefits of Clean Windows
Simply put, clean windows give a good first impression. If your home’s windows are clean and well maintained, your house will appear clean and well maintained, as well.
Smudges, dirt and mineral or water stains limit the amount of sunlight that streams into your home. It could make your home appear darker and you are not able to maximize the natural light that clean windows afford. In the winter, sunlight is not able to heat the inside of your house for maximum benefit, if there are smudges. Furthermore, lack of direct sunlight promotes the growth of mildew and can even encourage bugs or insects to grow in you home.
Most importantly, regular cleaning makes your windows last longer. It discourages the build up of hard water or mineral deposits. Not only are hard water deposits an eyesore, they eventually lead to damaged windows.
What are hard water deposits? These are caused by water that contains high mineral content - usually including calcium, magnesium and other compounds. Calcium or lime scale may initially make your windows just appear dirty but left unattended, these deposits will adhere to the glass. This makes it impossible to remove them without damaging your windows.

How Often Do You Need To Have Your Windows Cleaned?
The recommended frequency is twice a year. However, the frequency will vary depending upon the local weather conditions. If your home is near the sea, for instance, you might want to clean your windows every month or so. Salt can corrode your windows and it’s a good idea to wash your windows more frequently to prevent damage.
