Debating whether to DIY or call in a window cleaner? Here are some tips to help you make up your mind. Clean windows can make your home brighter and improve its overall appearance. A professional window cleaning can also provide an early warning of potentially dangerous problems. Here are some reasons you should consider hiring a professional window cleaning service to keep your windows sparkling and functional.
1. Saving Time
Cleaning your windows can be a time-consuming project. A professional can finish a project that would take a homeowner five hours in less than half the time.

The etched glass is not only unattractive, but it is also more prone to cracks and chips. A professional window washer can restore the glass and extend your window’s life with a treatment of muriatic acid or, in less severe cases, Bar Keepers Friend and grade 0000 steel wool.
3. Removing Insect Infestations
