Window cleaning may not be at the top of your list of priorities, but did you know that skipping this task may actually cost you more money in the long run? Hiring a professional window cleaning service is not only smart business, it’s affordable business. Plus, it will enhance your home’s curb appeal, improve your respiratory health, increase energy efficiency, and extend the lifespan of your windows.
It’s Not Vanity, It’s Curb AppealHaving a fresh, well-maintained exterior feels great and looks just as good, but that’s not the only reason we advocate for regular window cleaning. It’s also about money.
In fact, a 2020 study concluded that curb appeal could add as much as 14 percent more value to the average sale price of a home. Whether you’re selling your home or simply wish to increase the value of your investment, window cleaning is a quick and affordable way to increase curb appeal.
Reduce Energy Bills
There’s a common myth that windows only need to be cleaned once a year, usually during the spring. In reality, we suggest cleaning windows at least twice per year. Why? To reduce energy costs in Winter. The cleaner your windows are, the more sunlight will enter your home, and the lower your energy bills will be.
Stop Mold in It’s Tracks
Mold is not only unsightly, it can also trigger asthma in some people. Dirt, particles, and mold like to cling to window sills, and over time they accumulate. Maintaining clean windows and sills isn’t just a matter of economics and curb appeal—it’s also critical to your health.
Prevent Glass Degradation
Windows are expensive. In fact, the average cost to replace a single window is $700 and can run as high as $1,200. We don’t know how many windows you have in your home, but count them up and do the math—replacing your windows is expensive business.
Your windows take a beating to protect your home from dirt, sun, rain, snow, smog, insects and critters, sand, hard water, acid rain, and the list continues.
Over time, these elements accumulate on your windows, create a gunky buildup, dull your views, and may even scratch your windows. You may not notice this from afar, but take a close look, assess your window's health, and prevent long-term damage by calling in a professional.
You’re Protecting More Than Windows
Before sunlight enters your home, it must pass through your window screens. And if your screens are clogged with salt, dirt, bugs, and other biomatter, well, you know what happens—less sunlight enters the home, which means more money must be spent on energy bills.
When spring comes, you’ll want to throw open your windows and enjoy spring breezes. But if your screens are dirty and clogged, those breezes will only blow dirty air into your home.
Lastly, let’s not forget about your window tracks, which love to accumulate dust, bugs, and more. Track buildup is not only unsightly, it can also prevent your windows from sealing properly. And depending on weather and region, condensation can collect in these tracks and turn into mold.
