Thinking of Cleaning Your Windows? Here’s 5 Reasons You Should Hire a Professional

It might seem cheaper, easier and less hassle to clean your windows yourself. I’m here to tell you that this is often not the case! Here are five reasons you should save yourself the stress and hire someone else to do it.

It’s not as easy as you think it is. Window cleaning is actually quite a strenuous activity. Aside from all of the physical effort involved, it takes extraordinary attention to detail to actually achieve a favourable finish. Window Cleaners are trained to see glass in a different way to the rest of us. That might sound weird but it’s true! I will admit, I, the writer of this post, am not a window cleaner. But on one occasion, one of Flash’s cleaners decided to try to teach me how it’s done. I couldn’t even do one window and my shoulders were tired!

Windex isn’t very good. Windex is marketed as a streak-free, easy solution to cleaning windows, glass and mirrors in your home. I don’t know about anyone else, maybe it’s because I’m not very good at cleaning windows, but I’ve never achieved the streakless finish pictured on the bottle. As well as that, it’s not good for your body to be in such close proximity to all those fumes. Windex contains ammonium hydroxide, which doesn’t just sound scary, but is actually poisonous. You don’t really want to be breathing that in! Flash uses non-toxic cleaning products that won’t hurt your home and wont poison them!

It can be dangerous. Aside from the risk of straining a muscle when trying to clean your windows, there are a few risks involved. Namely, if you have any windows that you need to use a ladder to access, this can really cause issues. Ladders are heavy and unsafe, as well as unlucky! At Flash we have efficient and affective extension poles and water-fed poles which eliminates the need for any ladders. We also have strict OH&S guidelines and liability to help manage any risks. We can also help to retire your ladder with our StreamVac gutter vacuum, where we can clean your gutters with our feet firmly on the ground!

It’s very time consuming. Do you really have three hours to go around, scrubbing all of your windows? You’re a busy person. You have better things to do. Just think of all of the other things you could do in that time. You could catch up on Game of Thrones. You could walk your dog and take your kids to the park. You could cook a gourmet meal. You could learn a new skill. The possibilities are endless.

Honestly, who can be bothered? Seriously, all that fly screen removing, fly screen replacing, cob web brushing, scrubbing, re-scrubbing… it’s all too much. Who can be bothered? Well, the team at Flash Window Cleaning can.
