Pros vs Joes – What Separates a Professional Window Cleaning Job from a DIY Approach

What Separates a Professional Window Cleaning Job from a DIY ApproachWindow cleaning is a task that most homeowners put off as long as possible. When they do get around to it, they generally do an adequate, but an incomplete job. The surface of the window may appear clean, but the frame, sills, or seals can be easily forgotten or improperly washed. Not to mention, climbing up on a ladder with a bucket of water and window cleaning tools is dangerous work. Some things are better left to the pros, and window cleaning falls into that category.

Here are the differences between an amateur and a professional window cleaning job, and why you might want to reconsider clambering up on that ladder and stretching beyond your limits to reach those far corners of your windows.

The Pros Have the Best Tools and Products

Chances are you have some Windex or other glass cleaner lying around at the house. These solutions are adequate for those quick wipes in between a proper window cleaning, but if you want to do a deep, professional cleaning, you will likely have to go to the store and purchase not only the right products but also the right tools for the job. Even if you are knowledgeable when it comes to window cleaning products and tools, this will still be a bit of a hassle. Never mind if like most people, you don’t have a clue where to begin when it comes to window cleaning products and tools.

The pros have the best products and tools available to them, and more importantly, they know how to use them. Professional window cleaners are comfortable on ladders and know how to safely complete a job.

Professional Quality Finish

Having the right products and tools, and knowing how to use them, is part of what separates the pros from the average joes. Experience and pride complete the equation. Having developed the techniques for cleaning windows and how to get into the corners of frames, which is always frustrating, professional window cleaners have been there and done that.

Additionally, when your livelihood depends on how well you clean a window, frame, sill, and seal – you’re going to clean the window to a standard higher than what you’d probably do at your own house. Getting that spotless, streak-free finish, is what these experts do time and time again.

The Verdict

While it’s completely feasible to clean your own windows, when you weigh the pros and cons, especially if you have a house with multiple floors, it’s probably worth your while to call in the professionals to take care of the work. They know what they’re doing, they have the proper equipment, and they can get the job done safely. Don’t break your back or strain your neck trying to get each corner of your windows. Save yourself the hassle, and book yourself a window cleaning appointment with one of our experts. When you’re looking out through your professionally cleaned glass, you’ll be glad you did.
