Raise a hand if you know the difference between window cleaning & window washing? Sounds like a really silly question, but there is indeed a huge difference. Window cleaning is your regular windex & microfiber cloth routine. You know, when the kids have printed their hands & face against the glass kind of deal. You hope that the one-minute-clean will suffice. Unfortunately, the window now looks like the kids also did the clean up, too. Over time, that quick swiping is engraved into the window, collecting dust, & creating a Halloween like atmosphere.
On the other hand, window washing includes an entire process only a trained professional can handle. Sounds intense, but there is actually so much that goes into it! We’re here to break it down into everyday terms so that you know exactly what questions to ask before booking, & most importantly, why you should have those dirty windows washed!
Let’s start with the why. It’s the key ingredient for the whole thing, right? Our biggest why usually stems from post construction jobs. Contractors do a beautiful job assembling a home from start to finish, but what’s not pretty is the mess they leave behind. The piles of dust, for one, sticks into every and any surface it can. We found that the dust loves to hide out in corners such as window sills, the tracts, & on the actual glass. Furthermore, debris from paint, plaster, concrete, tape, & stickers can leave a sour taste in the homeowner’s mouth. As mentioned before, this is no job for windex & a microfiber sham. Window washing will provide the essential clean to your post construction site.
Window washing technicians who are solid in their field have trained & educated themselves on different kinds of glass & how each glass must be cleaned. When it comes to standard windows, a soft water process is best. The technician then uses razor blades to remove any debris from the windows. Before doing so, as a homeowner, be aware that heat-tempered glass is harder to clean, & provides a bigger risk of scratching. It will not be the window washers fault if he is asked to clean this kind of glass & ends up slightly scratching it! But this is just a case of what could go wrong, & is good to know about. When booking, ask what kind of method they use. The more knowledge the technician has, the better value you are getting for your dollar.
Lastly, the booking process. When searching for the best technicians, it’s easy to get side tracked by marketing, prices, & more. The Dirt Busters not only have experience, education, & amazing prices, but they run off of excellent reviews. Our customers experience high-end window washing because they understand the importance of booking the right man, every time. For more information, visit HurtOnDirt.com
