In residential buildings as well as commercial properties, making the most of the natural light that streams in, is extremely important. Not only does it cut down on the use of electricity and artificial lights, but lack of natural light can affect how many of us live and work. For some it can cause depression and ill health, and for others, being unable to see out of a window, can also affect the quality of our lives. So keeping your windows clear of dirt and grime is vital, particularly during the winter months, when the clocks go back and the nights begin to draw in. Employing a window cleaner on a regular basis will ensure your windows are kept streak free, and free up your time to do other more important things.
When cleaning the window yourself, many people make the mistake of using spray bottles and old rags or dusters, then find it very time consuming to try to get rid of all the streaks that appear. A professional window cleaner knows that when you spray water unevenly on a window pane, that a tiny bit of the moisture is absorbed by the glass. If you could see a piece of glass under a microscope, then you would realise it is not a smooth surface, but actually has thousands of minute jagged edges. As you start to dry off the window with a cloth, the material gets wetter leaving minuscule droplets of solution and water which causes smears.
A professional window cleaner will employ the correct amount of solution in the water used to wet the window, and then use a “Squeegee” blade with a rubber edge which cuts across the dirt and moisture, absorbing nothing, to clear the glass of dirt. They also use a variety of professional cleaning tools to reach the awkward corners or high windows, which avoid bending or twisting so if you have a back problem, then window cleaning is best left to the professionals. Similarly for health and safety reasons, they are trained to work safely at height, and will have the appropriate ladders and safety equipment for high rise buildings. For those suffering from even the mildest acrophobia, it makes sense to employ a window cleaner for both outside and inside cleaning of windows.
