It’s a question as old as windows themselves; “Should I clean them or hire someone else to do it?” There are a few things to think about when you have have dirty windows and are tossing up about whether or not to call a window cleaner or attempt it yourself. We all like to take on a DIY project from time to time, but when it comes to windows there are a few hidden challenges in getting them sparkly and clean. Let’s talk about some of the reasons why a professional window cleaner might be more suitable.
Cleaning windows properly can take time
For a novice, the process of getting your windows clean may take a lot longer than the professionals. As with all skills, reaching professional level involves doing it many times, practice! Professional Window Cleaners have had a lot of practice and know the tricks of the trade, therefore can get the job done in a fraction of the time it may take a DIY-er. It may take multiple attempts for the uninitiated to get the windows streak free and looking perfect.
The right tools and equipment cost money
With a basic microfibre and squeegee, you could be looking at multiple attempts to get rid of water marks and streaks. Professional window cleaners hone in on their skill and build up a suitable tool kit for all kinds of jobs. Taking on the project of getting your own windows cleaned could lead you to your local Bunnings, spending money on tools that might not necessarily get the best results. Reality is, the money you spend to get the right tools and cleaning agents could easily pay for a window cleaner, and they do all the hard work for you too.
Cleaning windows can be dangerous sometimes
Many homes and commercial buildings have windows in hard-to-reach places. Two story homes with large glass windows more than likely will require a ladder or some harness equipment to get to. The inexperienced window cleaner may not have the necessary safety equipment or be used to carrying things up a ladder. In a brief moment of trying to balance your footing and the cleaning products you could slip and get seriously injured. Rather than putting yourself at risk, let your local window cleaner go the extra vertical mile and get the job done.
