Effective Window Cleaning Brisbane
Most homes in Brisbane will need to have their windows thoroughly cleaned at least once a year.
With being close to the coast, natural bushland areas and the high humidity, windows get dirty and they tend to get mildew on the glass and frames as well – inside and outside.
When it comes to a spring clean or general cleaning the home, the thought of window cleaning is overwhelming as you need to do the inside and the outside of the windows.
As a homeowner, you have two options when it comes to taking care of your windows.
You can either go the DIY window cleaning way or hire a professional window cleaning Brisbane company to do it for you.
Either way, you have to ensure that the window cleaning is done regularly to keep your windows looking streak-free and perfect.
Benefits of Window Cleaning Brisbane
It improves the general appearance of the home
Most people spend a lot of their time cleaning the interior of their home and forget to clean the windows on both sides.
By not cleaning both sides of the glass you will still have dirty windows which bring down the efforts of your cleaning plus it prevents natural light coming into a room.
Clean windows are an instant way to significantly improve the lightness and brightness of a room plus the general curb appeal of your home is vastly improved.
Maintain The Windows
Did you know that dirty windows and frames will often have a shorter lifespan than those that are properly cleaned? This is caused by the accumulation of dirt and grime and trapped moisture, which weakens the putty and adhesives used to hold the glass in the window frame. There is nothing worse when a pane of glass rattles in the frame and allows water to seep in during a storm. However, when cleaning, it is vital to ensure that the water you are using is dried off the glass as most water contains minerals that will build up and leave water marks on the glass. Over time the water marks get harder and harder to remove.
Let the Light In
Windows are installed to allow in the natural light into a building. If proper window cleaning is not carried out on a regular basis, then the dirty glass will reduce the amount of natural light into the space. Therefore, it is important to clean away any dirt so that the windows can be more efficient in doing what they are supposed to.
Save power by not having to turn on lights as often as everything will instantly look lighter and brighter
