We all like our windows to look sparkling clean at all times. But unfortunately, they do not because the elements take a toll on the glass over time. To look glittering and shiny, windows need regular cleaning, a job that is arduous and demanding. Moreover, it is a thankless job, especially when you have to clean large windows inconveniently located at heights.
Is there a simpler and effective way for window washing than the usual method that is taxing and laborious? Yes there is a way out. Pressure washing will make your windows look brand new in much less time than it will take you by using a cloth, bucket, ladder, and whiskbroom.
What Is Pressure Cleaning?
Pressure cleaning or power washing is a very effective way to remove mold, grime, dust, and dirt from many types of surfaces, including windows. A typical pressure cleaning gear consists of a motor coupled with a pump, high pressure hose and a trigger gun-style switch. The high pressure system can produce pressures ranging from 50 bars – 2000 bars; good enough to clean even the most resilient grime and dust. The equipment of this nature is generally rented. In fact, the cleaning itself is generally done by professional cleaning services.
Once you hire a professional power washing service for cleaning your windows, you can rest assured they will take all necessary precautions to do the job right. Yet, it will do well for you to take the following precautions before starting with the window washing job.
* Check the window supplier’s warranty. In most cases, pressure cleaning voids guarantees.
* Avoid seepage of water inside your house during pressure cleaning by rolling up a towel on the inside of your windows. In addition, check for dents and gaps that can splash water inside. Avoid cleaning a damaged door by pressure washing.
* See to it that the pressure washer is set at the lowest allowable power setting.
* Keep a safe distance; say 5-6 feet away from the nozzle, during the start up. This is just to ensure that the pressure is not too powerful.
Does Window Washing By Pressure Consume More Water And Electricity?
It does not. It is a myth that pressure cleaning consumes more electricity and water. The fact is, pressure cleaning saves up to 75 percent of water that is consumed by a garden hose. The electricity cost is too minuscule to bother. Typically, an hour of usage may cost you not more than 10 cents. Even this cost is offset by the savings in water usage. So it is quite a deal when you consider the benefits.
Pressure cleaning is a boon, not only for window washing, but for roof and gutter cleaning as well. A regular plan for taking the services of power cleaners has some key benefits apart from the advantage of getting a job done professionally. Power washing ensures good preventive maintenance that in course of time avoids costly repairs, thus saving you money. Moreover, you take care of the health of your loved ones by preventing accumulation of dust and grime at all undesirable locations.
Plan the power cleaning of your windows at regular intervals. Window washing by power is well worth the cost.
