Many homeowners every day decide that it is more worthwhile to clean their windows themselves. But, there are some major drawbacks to DIY window cleaning and it can benefit you more to have a professional window cleaning appointment. Below are some aspects that make professional window cleaning worth the money and how it can benefit you as a homeowner. Saving money on home maintenance is important, so hiring a legitimate company can help you keep your home looking fresh.
The Drawbacks Of DIY
While you are certainly capable of cleaning your windows on your own, there are reasons to consider taking window cleaning off of your to-do list. Professional window cleaning has numerous benefits, but what are the consequences of DIYing your window cleaning?
To start, cleaning your windows takes time. While this may not seem like a big deal, in order to get the best results, you need to take the time to thoroughly clean the window pane, window sill, frame, and possibly the screen if you want your windows to last.
Doing this type of cleaning on each window can be time-consuming. It is also recommended that your windows receive a proper cleaning twice a year, so this time can add up.
Another drawback is the potential danger you are putting yourself in. Cleaning higher windows will require a ladder. There is always a risk when climbing on a ladder, especially when soap and water are thrown in the mix. A professional window cleaner will have proper safety equipment for climbing on tall roofs.
Some homeowners choose to clean their windows because it is cheaper. In reality, buying proper cleaning solutions, renting gear, and running the risk of home damage by removing the windows, can lead to higher costs. If you are looking for a thorough cleaning, hiring a professional can save you money. Scheduling professional window cleaning will save you worry and the replacement costs of deteriorated windows.
Professional Window Cleaning Can Save You Time
As previously mentioned, window cleaning when done properly, can take a significant amount of time. When you schedule a service appointment, you give yourself that time to focus on other cleaning tasks or important life happenings.
Professional window cleaners also have the skills to complete jobs much more efficiently and faster. The time it may take you to deep clean all the windows, including the small cracks and crevices, in your home can be almost cut in half when you implement professional window cleaning.
Improved Safety For The Homeowner
Pressure washing and navigating a ladder are often part of the window cleaning process. These actions can lead to injury for an inexperienced window cleaner. When you work with a cleaning company like Sierra Vista Maintenace, there is no worry about safety for you or your loved ones. We have safety equipment, proper training, and insurance to protect us from injury and you from being liable.
Proper Glass Cleaning Solutions
Household glass cleaners can promise a streak-free finish, but they may not deliver. They can also use harmful chemicals that can damage wood, and plants, or be toxic to animals.
Professional grade glass cleaners are used by window cleaning companies to ensure that your windows sparkle while avoiding harmful chemicals on the rest of your home. Once you have seen the professional grade cleaner and the improved appearance of your windows, you will never go back to DIY window cleaning.
Going Above And Beyond Window Cleaning
Our team with Sierra Vista Maintenance and many other window cleaning professionals will look for small problems while cleaning. Looking for signs of wear (cracks or small holes) as well as mold or clogged gutters can be done by a professional.
Noticing these issues sooner rather than later can help you repair them and improve your home. The last thing you want is for your home to deteriorate faster or look dumpy. Hiring professionals for window cleaning brings more benefits than just shiny windows.
When you work with our technicians at Sierra Vista, we also offer services that can help improve some of these issues. We can often complete multiple services in just one visit including pressure washing, window cleaning, gutter cleaning, and chimney sweep services.
Extra Precautions For Your Home
Professional window cleaning companies come with extra precautions that can protect your home and limit legal repercussions. Window cleaners will be covered by insurance in the case of injury or if they damage something in your home.
For example, if you are cleaning your windows on your own and shatter a window, you will need to replace it and pay for it yourself. Whereas a company that accidentally breaks your window will cover the replacement cost.
Legitimate companies will also be insured, licensed, and bonded. Always be wary of scams or illegitimate companies.
