Many things can go wrong if you don’t clean your windows regularly, if you read the reasons below you will find out why you should hire us at R&M Cleaning Service to take care of your windows.



  •  Spotting general problems.

First and foremost is identifying problems that need correction. Sashes painted shut, ill fitting screens, damaged or non functional window weights in older double hung windows and wood rot on sills are just a few problems that if spotted early can save big expense later.

  •  Removing insect infestations. 

Bees and hornets build nests behind shutters, wasps build paper nests in between older three-piece storm windows and ladybugs also build nests in channels to winter over, making the window hard to operate.

Little things like painted sashes and clogged channels might spell the difference between getting out in case of fire or being forced to take another way out of danger in a very stressful situation

  • Extending the life of a window.

Old aluminum screens left in place for years gradually etch a pattern of deposits on the glass, much like lime deposits in the shower. Not only is it unattractive, the etched glass is more prone to cracks and chips.

A simple treatment of muriatic acid or, in less severe cases, Barkeeper’s Friend and 0000 steel wool can restore the glass to gleaming brilliance and add years to the working life of the window.
