Whether you’re looking to get a deep cleaning before moving in or after moving out, or you’re just looking for a spring cleaning now and again, one cleaning item that might come up in your mind is the windows. We frequently get requests to clean windows. Unfortunately, “cleaning windows” is a vague term, as a window has several parts and not everyone has the same idea of what a clean window looks like. So, this post will go into the anatomy of a window, and expectations you should have regarding window cleaning from us.
The above image depicts just one type of window, but is the most common type of window we come across. This is a view from the interior of the house. We thoroughly clean the glass, muntins (grills), sashes, lock ledge and lock, stool, apron, and casing as part of our window-cleaning add-on.
The service we provide covers all interior aspects of the window without lifting, sliding, tilting, or otherwise opening the components of a window, so when it comes to professional cleaning of the sill, tracks, outer panes, screen, and other exterior components, we recommend looking into window cleaning experts. Why?
It’s certainly not to make your life difficult. We do this because we feel that the best use of your money on cleaning items that we are fully knowledgeable on. You wouldn’t ask an expert BBQ pit master to make you a cake and expect the results to be just as incredible. Or, simply put, you wouldn’t ask a professional window washing company to provide maid services. They just don’t have the same equipment or expertise to do that.
There are also single hung windows, casement windows, sliding windows, tilt-and-turn windows, and more, all requiring knowledge on how best to clean them – including disassembly. We believe that if you’re going to spend money on getting something done right, it’s best spent with the right professionals.
