What are the benefits of professional window cleaning?

Some may question what the real benefits are to having your windows professionally cleaned. While it's true that you may be able to achieve some results with an at home DIY external washing (cue in Youtube videos) you may be disappointed with the results. And the reason is, that professional window cleaners possess the tools and techniques that are not taught in these home videos. If you want to increase the curbside appeal of your home or store front, it's best to spend a little extra money to get your windows looked at by a cleaning technician.

This is more so the case if your windows are located a few stories up from the ground. Getting a ladder propped up to conduct the cleaning yourself poses many safety hazards. Don't be that homeowner who tries to scimp out on a few extra dollars and winds up in the ER because of a self inflicted injury. Professional window washers are highly trained to conduct window washing at great heights.

Now, on to the REAL benefits. Streak free windows can not be achieved with just some tap water, soap and a sponge. The water you're using itself is an issue. Tap water contains minerals and particles that are essential for drinking, but when used for window washing, can leave residue on the surface of the glass. Now, what kind of soap are you using? The fact of the matter is, if your cleaning solution is not one that contains the right balance of acid and cleaning agents, all of the scuff and grime that has built up over time on your windows will not be properly removed.

All of these factors and my head's already starting to hurt just thinking about doing the job on my own. Hire a professional. Shop around. Get a few quotes. Win win for all.
