Do you have dirty windows that you can’t stand to look at? Are they big windows that cover a whole side of your home, or you just can’t get to them easily and are just a hassle to clean them yourself? Well here’s a few things to look into before you hire a professional to clean your windows.
How Much Will It Cost To Bring In A Professional Window Cleaner?
According to homeguide.com, the average cost to hire a professional window cleaner is $150 to about $400 with most homeowners spending that much to clean an entire house. Window cleaners price ranges from $10 to $15 an hour, or $4 to $8 per pane, depending on how many floors your home has adding in $3 to $5 per window. The bigger your home, the more equipment they will need to use, like a ladder, to safely clean your windows so it could get pricey. So is it worth it?
Is Hiring A Professional Window Cleaner Worth It?
I’m sure you can clean your own windows, It’s not rocket science right? The only thing that you will have to do is go to the store and buy all the proper equipment to do them yourself. Especially, if you have windows that are really high, you’ll need to think about getting up on a ladder to safely clean them. The equipment you’ll need is a squeegee with 2 sharp rubber blades, a sponge, bucket, dish soap, lint-free rags or small towels, and a ladder or ladder stabilizer, if you do have those higher up windows. A professional will already have those supplies plus more. So buying the right supplies alone can cost just as much as hiring a pro and you’ll get better results. I mean they do it all day, everyday, so they have a lot of experience on how to properly clean windows. Hiring a professional will not only save you time and effort but it is safer than doing it yourself.
What Can You Get Out Of Window Cleaning?
Did you know you can get more than just your windows cleaned? Some professional cleaning companies offer other services like, power washing, gutter cleaning, roof cleaning, awning cleaning, even fence cleaning. So at the end of the day, you can have your entire house washed and you don’t have to put your time and effort into it.
What Do Professional Cleaners Use?
If you’re hiring a professional cleaning service, you’re not going to get the average cleaning supplies. They don’t use Dawn dish soap, or just some old rag to wipe the dirt away because those products can leave marks and streaks. Windows have enemies that can be really hard to get rid of, like dirty hands, dust, paints, oils and even birds you know what. Professional window cleaners use their own solution to help get rid of those rivals and some keep them off, if you get them cleaned regularly.
How Often Should You Clean Your Windows?
At least once a month if you live somewhere that has a lot of dirt or other things that continue to get your windows dirty. If you live somewhere that is not so dirty then twice a year is good enough too. You should put window services on your spring cleaning to do list each year, since snow tends to have a lot of salt and can eat away some of the coating. In the fall, leaves, dirt and grime can also leave some damage to your windows. So calling a professional to get rid of those enemies will help them last longer and you won’t have to spend even more money replacing them.
