They say cleanliness is close to godliness so a clean house will make you feel virtuous but you may be forgetting about cleaning part of this – your windows. By starting a routine of getting your windows cleaned, you could reap benefits that you did not even realise but ones that you will soon begin to enjoy.
Improves your window lifespan
The build-up of dust, grime and dirt around and on your windowsills can lead to wear and tear as oxidisation occurs from acid rain and hard minerals eroded them. By getting into the habit of getting your windows cleaned monthly, you will be protecting them against the elements and keeping them in the best possible condition you can.
Improving your house’s heat
This might be the biggest revelation for keeping a monthly cleaning regime with your windows. By maintaining their appearance, you will be improving your house’s energy efficiency. Dust and dirt particles that accumulate on windows will begin to reflect more UV light and prevent the natural warmth from the sun to penetrate. So by keeping your glass consistently clean can help to improve your heating bills and stop mould from forming which will lead to cold and damp issues.
Keeps up the appearance of your home
Consistent upkeep of your windows will sustain the overall look of your house, creating an attractive outlook to everyone, from passers-by, visitors, friends and family. It is not a crime to want to keep up your standards for your house and if it makes you feel more comfortable in your own home, it is worth it. Retaining the look of your house with clean windows will also help if you ever decide to move home, the outer exterior sparkling will speak volumes about how well you have treated the property.
That monthly clean of your windows, which at first did not seem so important, has now justified its worth. As you sit in a spotless house with warmer, fresher air circulating your house, you will realise and enjoy the benefits. You will be proud of your home, you will be investing in its care and you may be saving on your energy bills. You can relax knowing your scheduled service for your windows is improving everything around you.
