Just like “eyes are the windows of the soul,” the windows of your building can tell much about your business. Keeping the exterior of your building sparkling clean, including the windows, enhances curb appeal, reduces the need for costly repairs, and can attract more customers. 

There are many benefits to sparkling clean windows and having professionals do the window-washing for you. However, choosing the right commercial cleaning company makes all the difference so you don’t end up with shoddy work or damage to your building.  An experienced window washing service can ensure that your windows are pristine and help you take excellent care of your property.

Hiring a professional window cleaning service for your business has many benefits, such as

  • Enhances curb appeal –  If you’re trying to attract new customers, having clean windows enhances your overall appearance not only from the outside but also from the inside. Grime can obscure the incoming natural light and distract visitors and potential customers.
  • Reduces issues with mechanisms and hardware –  Professional window cleaning removes corrosive elements and potential mold from your windows, seals, and window frames, reducing the likelihood of future damage while saving you money on costly repairs and replacements.
  • Maximizes window efficiency – Professional window cleaners often inspect each window for damaged window seals, which can lead to air leaks, fogging, condensation, and higher energy bills. 
  • Safety – Many building windows are high off the ground and require special safety equipment to clean. Exterior commercial window cleaning often requires ladders, scaffolding, or hydraulic lifts, which can be dangerous without proper training.  Professional window washers understand how to safely clean your facility’s windows with the right solutions and equipment. 

How Often do Commercial Windows Need to be Cleaned? 

How often to clean the windows of your business is a balance between personal preference, your climate, and whether the windows are highly visible to your customers or passersby. Generally, you should have commercial windows cleaned 2-3 times yearly to prevent spots, streaks, and unsightly buildup before it becomes a bigger problem. 

In regions with longer winters, property managers often wash windows in the spring and fall. Certain factors may require more frequent window washings. Restaurants and retail stores need frequent window cleanings to maintain an inviting appearance.

Typically, restaurants should have their windows professionally cleaned twice a month; retail  stores and dealerships need window washing once a month and twice a month for locations with heavy foot traffic. Healthcare buildings need professional window cleanings at least once a month and office buildings twice a year. And if your business is near a busy highway, roadway, or coastal area, you’ll probably need more frequent window washing services  

Professional Window Cleaning Ensures the Best Results

Different window panes and styles require other cleaning chemicals and procedures to prevent damage to the glass. Professional window cleaners know how to clean various window types, including

  • Storefront windows (non-residential and non-load bearing that serve as a business entrance framework with commercial windows. The typical range of a storefront is 10 feet high or less)
  • Specialty windows (not the traditional square or rectangular shape. They can stand alone as a picture window or be combined with other operable windows or specialty shapes for something unique).
  • Slider windows (with two components, one stationary panel while the other moves horizontally left or right)
  • Sliding doors (a large glass window opening that provides door access from a room to the outdoors, fresh air, and copious natural light)
  • Skylights – (may be acrylic or plastic instead of glass. Because of this, use only mild cleaners and non-abrasive materials. The safest way to clean a skylight is to hire a professional.  
  • Casement Windows – (traditional style window that is hinged on the outside of the structure. Whether a single or a double panel, these window styles are commonly found in hard-to-reach areas)
  • Bay windows (designed with three panels, two angled panels with one straight panel in the middle, allow for an expansive view to the outside and provide plenty of sunlight)
  • Double-hung windows (options to open either the top or bottom panels)
  • Fixed-pane windows or picture windows (a standard window that is non-operational, maximizing views, light transmittance, or solar heat gain)
  • Awning windows (hinged at the top of the panel and opened with a handle)

Commercial High-Rise Window Cleaning 

High-rise window cleaning services are one of the best ways to maintain your building’s exterior appearance. Whether your windows overlook the city, conservation, hills, or waterfront, clean windows will help you appreciate the views from up high and protect your investment. Rain, snow, smog, salt spray, dust, debris, bird droppings, and more can end up on high-rise windows and obscure the view. Fortunately, professional window washers can make your windows sparkle again. 

High-rise window cleaning is generally safe if workers use the right equipment and take proper precautions to protect themselves. Safety is always a top priority, and high-rise or skyscraper window cleaners use different safety tools. A window cleaner safety belt or harness is critical for window cleaners working up high on a platform. The safety harness hooks onto the building and ensures the window cleaner remains securely suspended in the air if the platform falls. Protective gloves are also necessary, especially in the winter when wet hands can quickly freeze and make the window cleaner less nimble, and safe.

Building owners and managers have enough to worry about, which is one reason window cleaning is often neglected. Don’t let your building’s dirty windows hurt your business. An experienced commercial window cleaning service like Cleanstart will use the latest tools, techniques, and equipment to achieve the best results possible.
