Why Is It Important To Keep The Windows on Your Commercial Buildings Clean?

Updated: Mar 10, 2022

Why is it important to keep the windows clean on your commercial buildings? Most people think it's all about the sparkle, but there are several reasons why window cleaning is an essential part of your property's regular maintenance.

Here are five reasons why professional window cleaning is essential for your property:

1. Clean Windows Increase the Energy Efficiency of Your Building and Lower Energy Costs

Southern California is known for its year-round sun, and most of our clients have made substantial investments in their property by installing energy-efficient windows.

Many of our clients are surprised to learn that dirt particles on their windows can lower the overall energy efficiency of the building.

How does this work?

Energy-efficient windows are designed to reduce air leakage to help keep your property cool in the summer and warm in the winter months. In addition, by eliminating the need for your HVAC unit to overcompensate, energy-efficient windows help save on energy costs.

As dirt particles build up on the surface and in the pores of your windows, they will reflect UV light and heat away from your property in the colder months and inhibit the window's ability to reflect heat during the hotter months.

2. The Integrity of the Window May Weaken

The integrity of the glass may become weakened and more easily shattered. The transparency can become clouded due to the effects of dirt remaining on your windows. Glass is porous (not everyone is aware of this). Dirt and microorganisms can build up inside the pores, reducing the strength of your windows. Besides dirt, other particles can damage your windows, including:

· acid rain

· an accumulation of minerals left behind from hard water

· oxidation that occurs from window screens and metal window frames

· accidental overspray from construction materials such as paint, mortar, chalk, drywall texture, or other substances

3. Smoke From Wildfires Can Damage Windows

Southern California is no stranger to devastating wildfires. While most of these disasters occur outside the city center, smoke can travel several hundred miles and build up on the outside of your windows. The highly acidic content of smoke can damage your windows over time if not cleaned regularly.

4. Clean Windows are Good Feng Shui!

Windows are our property's "eyes to the world" and allow us to experience the world around us. But more than that, studies show that natural light helps with our overall wellbeing and moods throughout the day.

5. Clean Windows Improve Curb Appeal and Interior Appearance

And finally, we all know how clean windows affect our property's curb appeal and interior appearance. We know our clients must always put their best foot forward, and clean windows are an integral part of that presentation.
