You just noticed that your windows are dirty. The thick beams of sunlight that used to flit between your blinds every morning no longer there. They’re being blocked by dirt and grime. Your Seattle, WA windows need a little TLC before they’ll shine again.
So, should you commit to doing the work yourself or is it time to hire a professional window cleaner?
If you own your own home, it’s almost certainly worth it to hire a pro. Here’s why.
1. Your Time is Valuable
Window cleaning doesn’t exactly top anyone’s list of fun activities. To do a good job, you need to be thorough. That means that you probably need to devote at least a few hours to the task. You might even need to buy supplies.
If you hire a pro, however, you can save yourself the stress.
2. You Have Stained or Tinted or Windows
Certain windows require particular treatment. There’s no point in shelling out money for stained or tinted glass if you’re not going to take care of them. A pro already knows which cleaning supplies to use and how not to cause damage.
3. You Want Perfection
Sometimes, you really want your windows to glisten. This is especially true if you’re putting your home on the market. Ugly or dirty windows will lessen your home’s curb appeal.
It’s easy to leave streaks or dirt behind if you’re not experienced. A pro will do a great job so your home looks its absolute best.
4. You Have a Bug Problem
Dealing with an infestation can be tricky. Hornets and bees love building their nests behind secluded shutters. You and your family are at risk of being stung every time you try to open or close the window.
To get rid of the nest completely, your best bet is really to call a professional.
5. You Have Elaborate, Tricky Windows
Some windows are harder to clean than others. If you have a lot of difficult windows, it makes sense to think about getting help to clean them. Otherwise, you’ll have to get a ladder and other equipment.
6. You’ve Never Cleaned Your Windows
Every home deserves to have a professional window cleaning at least once. Your windows probably aren’t at the forefront of your mind. Unless there’s a glaring problem like a crack in the glass, you might not even notice when your windows need attention.
That’s why you should schedule a deep clean once or twice a year.
