Window Cleaning in Winter: Is it worth it?

Posted on November 10, 2017 at 11:00 pm

Many people look at their windows in the winter months when they’re putting their Christmas decorations up and think “gosh my windows are filthy!”

That said, not many people choose to clean their windows when it’s as cold as it is right now, so is it better to wait until spring? Well, it does really depend on how bad the weather is, and how dirty the windows are. If it’s so cold and damp that the windows will not dry properly, and if there’s no sign of a good day coming, then you may want to wait it out for a brighter day. If you wait until spring, the windows will just remain dirty, but if you clean them during winter, they could pick up dust and dirt relatively quickly too, so in our opinion, it’s usually best to wait. A spring clean is a wise option when the warmer period rolls around again, so why not start planning for that big job, and just relax whilst we’re in the festive period.

Hiring a professional window cleaner for your home

Posted on March 27, 2017 at 4:15 am

If you’re thinking of hiring a window cleaner to spruce up your property, consider the many advantages of hiring a professional – and not a family friend or mate from down the pub!

The main benefit of hiring a professional window cleaner is that when the job is done, you will end up with gleaming windows; no dust, no watermarks and most importantly, no damage to your property. Professional window cleaners are equipped with the knowledge, experience, and devices required to clean your home’s windows. A decent window cleaner will carry out the job right and leave you satisfied, but an experienced window cleaner cannot guarantee you the same sort of finish.

Another benefit of hiring a professional window cleaner is that it will spare you time. By hiring a window cleaner to clean your home’s windows, you will have more time to crack on with other errands or important tasks. When deciding to hire a window cleaner, you will also want to discuss a few things with them first, perhaps there are areas of your building’s envelope where you’re aware of cracks or issues, so do let them know and they may be able to remove any potentially damaging dirt, whilst they can ensure no water from their cleaning job makes it into the house.

When discussing your needs, you will want to get a guarantee from the individual or company that they will carry out the job right. We understand that you most likely want a company you can continue to use for years to come, so it’s always best to look for a team or individual that has plenty of experience in your local area. So do ask friends and relatives if they know of anyone who they can recommend, this could save you a lot of time researching.

Resealing your windows

Posted on September 30, 2016 at 10:09 am

Overtime the sealant you have used on the outside of your windows can disintegrate or decay over time. If your sealant has or is turning black in colour, then you may want to consider getting your windows resealed, especially with winter right around the corner. By resealing your windows you can remove drafts and condensation, giving your home more protection from the frosty weather. To reseal your widows you need to remove the old sealant by caulking around the frame. Once removed, simply clean the window frame and add your new sealant, it’s that easy. Just be sure not to put too much sealant in otherwise you may damage your window frames, and this will be a much bigger job to fix. There are many sealants to choose from including white and transparent, so do your homework first before choosing the right product for your windows.

Self clean windows – will they replace window cleaners?

Posted on February 24, 2016 at 7:52 pm

First there were self clean skylights now there are self clean windows. As great as they sound, can this be bad news for window cleaners? Well, at the moment the simple answer is no. A self cleaning window is nowhere near as competent as a professional window cleaner. They‘re merely designed to use the rain to stay clean, but they’re always going to collect dirt and dust, and eventually even self cleaning windows need cleaning! It’s normal for skylight to be ‘self cleaning’ and that’s because people don’t want to be going up on the roof every couple of weeks to ensure they have a clean view, and whilst they can stay cleaner than a standard rooflight, they will eventually need a good detailed clean, and we reccomend that you always hire a professional for this.

Posted on November 3, 2015 at 11:08 am

Doors and windows are important and expensive set ups and they protect us from outside threats. Thus it is our moral duty to take proper care of them to keep them in good condition.

1. Always keep the doors and windows clean. Wipe them and splash water on the glasses so they look clean and `tidy. Dirty doors and windows don’t produce good image.

2. If they are of wooden keep them away from water and other liquids. Water might spoil the wood and lead to deterioration of doors.

3. Make arrangements for their painting or polishing. A polished and shiny door and window are a treat to watch.

4. If the windows and doors are of metal, paint them every year in order to avoid rusting and brokerage of previous paint.

5. Make sure that the handles, locks are in well state and they aren’t broken.
