How often should you have your windows cleaned? Once a year, twice a year…or is it even that necessary in the first place? While the answer will depend on a few factors, dirty windows in your residential or commercial building are an eyesore, plain and simple. In your home, it’s easy to forget how much brighter your rooms would be with clean, unobstructed windows. For businesses, dirty windows can be off-putting to potential customers.
Regular window cleaning can truly transform your property and make it feel much brighter and fresher. Renewal by Andersen® of Cape Cod, one of the leading window companies in the region, discusses what to consider when deciding how often to have your windows clean.
Scheduling Window Maintenance
Most homes can generally get away with a thorough cleaning twice a year – during spring and fall. These seasons are ideal for cleaning because they tend to bring milder temperatures. It’s important to remember, though, that no matter how often you have your windows done, hiring expert window contractors will help you get the best service available.
Key Factors to Consider
Several factors may dictate how often your windows need cleaning. These include:
- Local weather conditions – If you live in an area that sees a lot of rainfall, it’s best to have your windows cleaned before the peak of the rainy season. Doing so will help eliminate built-up dust or dirt that may be causing damage to the frame and glass.
Surroundings – If your home is located near a dirt road, construction site or a factory with a busy production schedule, you may want to call on a professional to help wash your windows more often.
Proximity to ocean – Saltwater in the air can accumulate on your windows. You’ll need to have your windows cleaned more regularly if you live by the sea to address the salt accumulation.
Window maintenance is a serious undertaking. To make the most out of this investment, be sure to consult only professional window contractors. They will help clean your windows thoroughly, develop an action plan to prevent damage and can offer high-quality window replacement if your units are damaged beyond repair.
