Should You Clean Your Home’s Windows or Hire a Professional?

There’s no question that you need to clean your home’s windows. What you need to decide is if you should clean them yourself or hire a professional. There are actually multiple reasons why it’s better to opt for a residential window cleaning service. After you’ve tried it once, you’ll never want to go back to cleaning windows yourself.

1. It Can Be Dangerous to Clean Windows

If you need to use a ladder to clean your windows, you are putting yourself at risk of slipping or falling. This could result in a serious injury. Plus, if you have many windows to clean, you’ll need to continuously move the ladder, which could hurt your back.

If you have large windows, you may even be tempted to lean slightly to reach the far side instead of getting off the ladder and moving it a few centimetres. This is extremely dangerous, as the ladder could tip, taking you with it.

Another method people use to clean high windows is leaning out from the inside. This is equally dangerous — when you’re focused on scrubbing a difficult-to-remove spot, you could easily fall.

2. It’s a Long Day’s Work

For the untrained, cleaning windows is long and tiresome work. Unlike professionals, who have the experience and right equipment to clean quickly and efficiently, it may take you hours to complete the task. This is probably the last thing you want for your day off. Not only that, cleaning windows is hard, especially if it’s been a while since their last clean. You’ll end up dirty and exhausted.

3. The Results Will Be Far Better with a Professional

It is impossible to achieve anything near the results of the professionals. They have the training and tools to make your windows shine, to remove even the toughest grime, and to avoid streaks. They’ll also keep putting in maximum effort until your last window is clean — you will most likely be sick of the job as you near the end. All this can make a big difference to the appearance of your home from both inside and out.

What About Commercial Window Cleaning?

Commercial window cleaning is even more demanding, meaning it is yet more important to hire a professional. For instance, a window cleaning company will use a roof anchor system to keep workers safe.

Whatever your property, it is always better to hire a window cleaning service than attempt to do it yourself. You’ll gain better results, put no one at risk for an accident, and save yourself from unpleasant hard work.
