3 Powerful Benefits of Commercial Window Washing

Windows are our gateway to the outside world when we are indoors. It’s because of this that proper maintenance is crucial, for businesses or residential buildings. There are 3 big reasons you will want to get your hire the pros to routinely wash the windows for your property, whether it be a high-rise, mid-rise, apartment complex, business or home. Regular professional maintenance will improve the aesthetics of your building, extend the life of your windows and you will receive through and quality results that may be difficult to obtain for DIYers.

Aesthetics Can Boost Your Bottom Line

Clean windows let in more natural light. This may seem trivial, but it has very real benefits. Natural light includes all the colors of the spectrum, which promotes wakefulness and alertness. If you have an office building, more natural light is a great way to boost the efficiency of your employees. Being exposed solely to artificial light can lead to headaches, sluggishness and even depression. More natural light can also cut down on energy used to light your indoor spaces, which will reduce your energy bill.

Having clean windows also expresses to employees, prospective clients, customers or prospective/ current tenants that you care about your property and your business. You only get one chance at first impressions and looking professional will help make it a good one. People are very visual beings, and keeping a clean environment is more appealing to those who work at or are visiting your place of business and gives the impression that you pay attention to detail, making you and your business look like professionals.

If you own an apartment complex, then you know that turnover is expensive and you want to keep as many of your units occupied as long as possible. A freshly cleaned set of windows can be the finishing touch on presenting a unit to potential tenants. With the increased natural lighting and spotless windows, even those windows that are difficult to reach, the entire unit will look brighter and more attractive. When you find a quality tenant, it’s important to make them happy so they continue to rent. Routine washing will keep your current tenants happier, especially with the benefits of natural lighting.

Extend the Life of Your Windows

Natural deposits like minerals, dirt, grime, etc. can damage your windows, leaving scratches and scuffs. If left on, these deposits can actually bake onto the glass, making them much more difficult to remove. A fresh professional wash 3 or 4 times a year will keep your windows as clear as possible for years to come.

Another concern from natural weathering is the buildup of corrosive materials that can actually damage the seals around your windows. This can lead to drafts, reducing the efficiency of your windows and increasing your heating or cooling needs. Damages seals can also lead to moisture and mold problems. Water damage can be a very costly repair and mold can be a health hazard. This can be a concerning problem if your building is a mid or high-rise structure.

If your building is made of concrete, then it’s very important to get your windows routinely washed. Several minerals that are used in the manufacture of concrete can leach out and cause your windows to become dirty on a regular basis.

If you have windows that open/ close, then it’s important to keep the tracks clean so the windows will function properly or the lifetime of the window.
