BEFORE AND AFTER
IS PROFESSIONAL WINDOW CLEANING WORTH IT?
Above you can see real photos of a residential property that we cleaned back in 2022. You can quickly see that there is a huge difference in the general appeal of the property after the windows have been cleaned, but it still begs the question, using a Professional Window Cleaner worth it? For a quick answer, I would say.... it depends?
Some people like cleaning windows (we do!), but others find it to be a daunting task that they would rather assign to someone else. Sunshine Windows has been serving Claremont for over 45 years, and we have well over 4,000 active customers that, for one or another reason, would say that hiring a professional window washer is well worth the expense.
WHEN DO PEOPLE GET THEIR WINDOWS CLEANED
We clean windows 6 days a week 52 weeks a year. There is never a good or bad time to get your windows cleaned, but some people will get their windows cleaned for specific reasons. If you are trying to sell your property, your Real Estate Professional might suggest getting them cleaned before you list the property. Getting the windows washed by a professional will make a big difference in the general appeal of your home and might even increase the final sale price of your house. Realtors® will often suggest a professional window cleaning service for just this reason.
However, some people just like coming home to clean windows. Well over half of our clients ask us to keep them on a recurring maintenance schedule. This is an easy way to make sure you windows always sparkle and that your home looks great for every occasion.
HOW MUCH DOES WINDOW CLEANING COST
Windows come in various shapes and sizes which make some easier to clean than others. If you have more second story windows than first story windows, it will likely be more expensive because it will take the technician longer to complete the job. The best thing to do is to get a quote from your local window cleaner. It is best if the estimate is done in person, because estimate over the phone are often a "best guess" at the price and often times the price will change when they get there if there is something about the architecture of the house that is different than what they were picturing over the phone.
CAN I CLEAN MY OWN WINDOWS?
Window Cleaning is definitely something that can be done on your own, but there are some
things to think about before giving it a try.
Height of the windows- many people are not comfortable getting on ladders or walking on a roof to reach "hard to get" windows.
Time- A professional window cleaner should be able to clean your windows much faster than you can. If you have a spare day to clean your windows that's great, but many people just don't have the extra time it takes to get the task done.
Products- A professional window cleaner is not going to use the same products most homeowners use, but if you read down, I will tell you exactly what you need to clean most residential windows.
WHAT PRODUCTS CAN I USE TO CLEAN MY OWN WINDOWS
Window Cleaning products sold at the store will often leave a hazy residue on your mirrors or windows, so if you are going to DIY I suggest buying the following products
With the above listed tools, you should be fairly well set to clean your own windows.
WHAT ARE SOME QUESTION I SHOULD ASK A PROFESSIONAL WINDOW CLEANER
When hiring a window cleaner in Claremont. One of the most important things to do is make sure that they are insured. There are some inherent risks to the window cleaning profession. The biggest of those risks is falling from an elevated workspace. We highly recommend always asking your window cleaner to send you a copy of his or her Worker's Compensation Insurance. A fall or injury on your property is something that you want to make sure you are protected against.
Aside from Worker's Compensation Insurance, it would also be good to have them send you a copy of their General Liability Insurance. Both of these instruments are important to verify before you let anyone do work on your property.
