Why Cleaning Screens Is Good for Your Health, Safety, and Wallet

There's no doubt about it: cleaning your own windows is a tedious, labor-intensive task. As much as it pains us, we understand why exhausted homeowners go through the process of cleaning their windows only to stop short—without tackling their screens.

But there are a few reasons why Men In Kilts recommends a comprehensive window cleaning treatment.

It Just Makes Sense

You wouldn't scrub your floor and then drop a dirty rug on top of it. So why go through the sweat of cleaning your exterior windows only to cap off the project with dirty screens?

Your windows may be crystal clear, but you've undermined your hard work if your screens are clogged with salt, mold, bugs, and dust.

Better Air Quality

It's spring, so it's time to throw open the windows and let in the fresh air and sunshine. But before that fresh sunlight and air waft into your home, they're filtered through your screens. And if they're dirty, well, you’re inviting dust, pollen, and other allergens into your home.

Dirty screens inhibit fresh air and may cause several respiratory irritations, including headaches, runny nose, itchy eyes, sneezing, coughing, and more.

Better Views

Do you want to see dead moths, dust bunnies, salt, and grime when you throw open your windows? Or would you rather take in blue skies and budding trees? We already know the answer.

Clean your screens and enjoy better views, increased curb appeal, and a clear, unfiltered look at that beautiful spring weather.

Stop Accidents in Their Tracks

The American Academy of Pediatrics reports that falls from windows account for more than 5,000 annual injuries. Many of these accidents are attributed to broken components, cracked windows, and poorly secured screens.

If you don't clean your windows and screens, you may not know that they require repairing. That's a big reason we recommend hiring a professional window and screen cleaning service like Men In Kilts. We'll not only clean your windows and screens, we'll inspect them to ensure that they're safe and in working order.

Save Money

Clean screens ensure that windows stay cleaner longer. If your screens are rife with grit and grime, wind, and hard water will transfer it to your windows—which means you'll have to clean your windows more frequently.

Men In Kilts saves you time, money, and energy by simultaneously cleaning windows and screens. We like to completely reset the system at least once a year. So all you have to do is maintain it. Get a free estimate to have professionally cleaned windows by Men In Kilts when you call (888) 292-1176.
