How easy is it to notice when my window is very dirty?
Not very easy. Most people do not notice when their window is really dirty till it is too late. You walk by it everyday and so you do not see the little finger smudges, dirt particles and bug poop that accumulate over time. Visitors on the other hand notice this quickly. It is their first time and so they have a keen eye for detail.
Get a clear picture out of your home, or an even clearer picture into your business. Most people do not realize how dirty their windows are until it’s disastrously dirty.
Dirty windows turn away visitors and business patrons before they even step into our business or home. Largely unseen specks, smears and all kinds of debris that give an idea that you don’t have attention to details.
Do not have a “I really don’t care about this and every other thing right now” attitude to window cleaning.
Sometimes you have time to do a spring clean other times you need an expert to get in a regular pattern or get the first intense deep clean for your windows.
Do not fall into the trap of having a clean window on the inside and a dirty window on the outside. It is essential both internal and external windows are cleaned and if you have a window close to the floor where splash and puddles can spray dirt over your window, then you may need to clean your outside window with more attention and more often than you would your inside windows.
Handling window cleaning agents & chemicals.
Window cleaners come in all shape and sizes. There are the green environmentally friendly cleaning solutions, they are harsher reagents that can be used and breakdown over time.
There are commercial grade cleaners that strip everything off the mirror. No matter what reagent or cleaner you are using, you have to make sure you choose a non-toxic solution for use around your home and business.
At Furbish, we ensure all our cleaners are environmentally safe both for plant and animals. As the popular saying goes: “Health is Wealth”. We pride ourself in keeping the environment safe and healthy.
