Many homeowners only get their windows cleaned once or twice a year. They usually choose to get this done during the spring and summer months. What they might not realize is, having their windows cleaned during the fall can be very beneficial to their homes. During the fall, leaves and debris fall from trees more frequently and cause windows to become dirty. Along with this, window screens will act as large filters that will collect and hold dust and dirt that will also cause windows to become disgusting! Here are a few reasons fall window cleaning can be beneficial to you and your home.
Windows are your biggest source of heat loss during the colder months. When your windows become dirty, they’re blocking out many of the suns rays that are actually helping to heat our homes. When there isn’t much sunlight entering your home, you will be compensating for it by using more heat. Causing you to pay out more money. This is something that can easily be fixed by simply having your windows cleaned.
Another factor that is often over looked by homeowners is, the protection you get with having your windows cleaned. During the fall, winds pick up blowing leaves and debris around. Over time this will cause your windows to degrade. When this happens, glass becomes brittle and is more likely to crack. I assure you the cost of window cleaning is far more affordable than a window replacement.
While They’re At It
If you do choose to have a professional cleaning service clean your windows. It may be a good idea to have them clean your gutters as well. Many cleaning companies will offer both of these services and it doesn’t cost that much. When gutters get filled with leaves and debris, they can overflow. This can help create water damage to your home and cause your windows and siding to become dirty. Having your gutters cleaned during the fall will also help for the winter months to prevent ice damming.
