Why Should I Have My Windows Professionally Cleaned?
May 5, 2016
There are many underlying beneﬁts to having your windows professionally cleaned that you may not have known. Besides windows being aesthetically pleasing, did you know that dirt and smudges can affect the amount of heat your windows are able to conduct? The grime causes sunlight to be directed outward, causing your home to lose heat in the winter.
Lack of sunlight being absorbed also promotes dust, allergens and bugs to accumulate in window sills and cracks. Clean sills and windows prolongs the life of your windows.
A less obvious reason is the fact that sunlight promotes emotional well-being! It is no secret that natural sunlight reduces depression year round.
How Often Should I have My Windows Cleaned?
You might ask, how often should I have my windows cleaned? The answer will differ depending on personal preference and local climate conditions. Generally speaking, you should professionally clean your windows twice a year, perhaps early spring (after the winter weather has subsided) and then again sometime in the fall. If you live near a more uncompromising area, such as a heavy trafﬁc dirt road, or near the ocean where salt can accumulate on your windows, you may want your windows cleaned three to four times a year, perhaps more!!
Think Green Window Clean believes in helping their customers keep their windows in tip top shape. This not only includes a spankin’ clean set of windows, but pointing out any not so obvious issues. If we notice broken seals, we will let you know and advise you of the best solution to getting them fixed.
Broken seals can be hard to see if it’s happened recently. Sometimes it will look like raindrops on the window but it’s actually in-between the panes. Broken seals also can look hazy which usually will be visible around the sides, top and bottom.
Broken seals can be caused from an array of things. There are two primary reasons are; that the house shifted and there was not enough room for the window to move and it got crunched or twisted. The second reason is that something was pushing or leaning on the window, causing it to ﬂex which can cause the seal to break.
