Cleaning Windows Frequently

by / Monday, 02 June 2014 / Published in News

Washing windows is one of those tasks most home and business owners like the least, and as a result, often put off. Having clean windows not only gives your home or business appearance a quick boost, it lets in more light, cutting down on energy costs in the winter. It also prevents the buildup of grime, prolonging the life of your windows and preventing you from having to replace them sooner.

The Glass Association Of North America recommends cleaning windows at least twice per year at a minimum. We do have annual customers that only require a cleaning once a year but those are rare. In most cases we do not recommend this as it will deteriorate your glass, and framing sooner. Which means you will be replacing your windows sooner. Most residential customers fall in between twice and year and quarterly. Commercial window cleaning schedules really depend of a number of factors as you will see but somewhere between Bi-weekly and Quarterly window cleaning is about right.


So…How often should you clean your windows?

Here are our Recommendations:

Residential Windows: 2 – 6 times per year. Depending on the environment.

Restaurants: Every 1 or 2 Weeks

Retail Stores (High Traffic): Every 2 or 4 weeks.

Office / Retail Stores (Low Traffic): Every 4 or 8 weeks.

Office Building Lobbies: Every 4 or 8 weeks.

Entire Office Buildings: 2 times per year
