One of life’s little pleasures is the ability to see a crystal clear summer day through a well-cleaned window.
Achieving that streak-free status may require outside help.
If you’re on the fence about hiring a professional window cleaner and considering whether to do it yourself, there are three things to consider before ascending that ladder for a day of DIY window washing:
- Safety — Can you safely clean those outside, hard-to-reach windows, and do you have the right equipment?
- Time — Washing windows is a time-consuming task. One major reason to hire professionals is for your time and efficiency.
- Quality — Some household cleaners leave streaks you’ll have to stare at until the next time you can clean the windows.
Once you’ve decided to hire a professional window washer, here are four things you probably didn’t think to do or ask but that you should before your squeegee-wielding window cleaner arrives:
1. Clean your blinds
Clean windows can collect the dust that comes off of blinds. So if you plan to have a company wash the inside of your windows, then dust and clean your blinds before they arrive, or go ahead and ask if they can add that on as a service.
2. Ask about odd jobs
Window washers generally will have special equipment, not only to reach high outside windows but also to access high gutters as well. At Curb Appeal, We have our SoftWash System to do Roof Cleaning, Pressure wash buildings, cement, parking lots and more for both residential and commercial properties. Ask if and how much it will cost to do some of these other services.
3. Move fragile items
Even if a company is extremely careful and professional, the reality is accidents do happen. So if you move fragile goods out of the way, it will keep them from getting inadvertently damaged.
4. Consider the window screens
If your screens are outside of your windows, they’ll generally be a lot dirtier and need more thorough cleaning than if the screens were inside. A thorough process will generally include a cleaning solution, whereas a less thorough process that works on inside screens would be simply using a wet towel and wiping them down.
