Why Your Windows Need A Cleaning?
Improve State Of Mind:
Clean windows have a positive impact on our state of mind by allowing natural light to flood into our living or workspaces. The unobstructed views and brightness create a sense of openness and connection to the outside world, which can enhance mood, boost productivity, and reduce feelings of confinement. Clean windows also eliminate visual distractions and provide a fresh, polished environment that promotes a sense of calm and clarity, ultimately contributing to an improved overall state of mind.
If you like to host and entertain guests you probably have made every effort to tidy up but have you neglected your homes best asset – the view. If your home has a nice view, why not maximize its glory with crystal clear and streak free windows.
Clean windows contribute to extending their lifespan by preventing the buildup of dirt, debris, and contaminants that can deteriorate the glass surface over time. Regular cleaning removes corrosive substances such as mineral deposits, hard water stains, and pollutants that can gradually etch or damage the glass. Additionally, removing grime and dust from window frames and seals helps prevent moisture retention, which can lead to deterioration, mold growth, and potential structural damage. By maintaining clean windows, you can preserve their condition and functionality, ultimately prolonging their lifespan.
Clean windows significantly enhance curb appeal by presenting a polished and well-maintained appearance to passersby and visitors. Sparkling windows allow natural light to illuminate the interior, making the space look inviting, bright, and more visually appealing. The absence of streaks, smudges, and dirt creates a sense of cleanliness and attention to detail, enhancing the overall aesthetic appeal of the property. Clean windows contribute to a positive first impression, elevating the curb appeal and overall attractiveness of any home or business.
Clean Windows Yourself Or Hire?
Most DIYers think cleaning windows is a simple task, but more often than not, they will realize it’s a much taller order than initially thought. Simply using a spray bottle, paper towels, and finding any old ladder won’t get the job done and can be even dangerous. “According the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons, every year 500,000 people are treated for ladder-related injuries and approximately 300 of these incidents prove to be fatal” .
The professional way to clean windows requires skill and the right tools. Professional window cleaners have a full arsenal of tools including buckets, hoses, squeegees and scrubbers to fit various sized windows, ladders and fall protection equipment, cleaning solution, shoe covers, absorbent cloth, screen brushes, deionized water filters, water-fed poles, razor blades, and professional squeegee rubber blades.
When you wash windows every day you learn proper techniques to do a great job. Practice makes perfect. Technicians are trained to achieve sparkling clean streak-free windows, without leaving any residue, lint, or hard water stains.
With great attention to detail, professional window cleaners wear clean shoe covers while working inside your home. They use an absorbent cloth under the windows to protect your floor, carpet, and furniture. Leaving no trace behind except perfectly clean windows.
Window washing can be a real time suck especially if your windows have not been washed in a long time. Hiring professionals will save hours of your valuable time and achieve better results.
Furthermore, in case you have any bird droppings, paint specks, or hard-water stains on the glass, the best window cleaners are trained and equipped to remove contaminants leaving your windows perfectly clean.
How Often Should I Clean My Windows?
Many of our customers get their windows cleaned every 6 months but it really depends on environmental factors and the proximity of your home to the ocean. There are many locations in Los Angeles with heavy exposure to salty ocean air, where we highly recommend window washing every 3 months.
How Much Does Window Washing Cost?
Window washing cost ranges between $4-$10 per pane for a standard sliding window. There is no tax in California for a window washing service, insurance and equipment costs are included in our prices. The size and difficulty to access different windows is complex but getting an estimate for your specific job is simple.
RayAccess provides online estimates within 10 minutes for most of our residential customers. Kindly call RayAccess during business hours, and provide your needs with the job site address to one of our friendly representatives.
Types of Windows We Clean:
Standard sliding window:
Basic windows slide open or closed vertically or horizontally. One side moves while the other side is stationary. This means that when the window is opened the sliding side covers the stationary side from the inside.
Standard casement window:
This type of window usually has one or more panes that swing/crank open inside or outside.
Multi-paned windows that function like doors as they open from both sides, without any mullion in the center, blocking the view. Most often, French windows have multiple small panes (lights) which are separated by frames. In this case, French windows require more time to clean as each panel must be washed and detailed one by one.
These windows have double layers of sliding windows designed to minimize outside noise. Usually , in order to clean soundproof windows, the inner set of panes has to be completely removed.
Three paned windows that protrude from an exterior wall. Oftentimes, there is a bench in the interior where someone can sit and look out each window pane to admire three different views.
Similar to bay windows as they extend from the exterior wall but they also feature a glass covering on top. Commonly used to display plants.
Single paned windows that do not open but are usually very large. Picture windows are commonly used in storefronts or modern design homes.
A roof window that is designed to expose light beneath. Skylights can be of different shapes and sizes from plexiglass bubble to glass picture pane, pyramids or domes. Since they are most often horizontal, skylights collect dirt much quicker, thus skylight cleaning is very time consuming. In addition to the time spent on the safety requirements a window washer needs to arrange, given the danger working at height.
Glass railings are designed to offer protection from high platforms (balconies, patios, decks). With safety, they provide an open space feeling without obstructing views. However, glass railings need to be cleaned as often as windows to stay in working condition.
Alternative Window Cleaning Services:
A renovation or new home build is a beautiful thing but windows, frames and tracks can be covered with paint overspray, adhesives, construction dust or stickers. After construction is completed, and before the home is occupied, RayAccess performs post construction window cleaning.
Window Cleaning on tall buildings requires special training of high access equipment. RayAccess invests in employee training to operate boom lifts, swing stage, BMU, and industrial rope access.
Skylights need to be cleaned more often than vertical windows. Skylights attract more dust due to the fact that they are more likely to be placed on a horizontal plane.
Routine solar panel cleaning will optimize performance and reduce your carbon footprint.
These are stubborn stains caused by inorganic compounds dissolved in water. Hard Water stains are very common in glass, granite, marble, aluminum, and stainless steel. RayAccess has a number of techniques to remove hard water stains and protect them from happening.
