Cleaning Your Home Windows

Cleaning your home windows should ideally be done twice a year. But we know from experience that most people prefer to put this home maintenance project off to the side for long periods of time. The honest truth is you don’t know what you’re missing until you clean your windows and do so on a routine basis.

Here’s why you should clean your home windows and do it properly:

Windows not only provide you with the beautiful picture of the world outside, but also allow sunlight to enter your home’s interior, bringing you extra light during the day time. Also, for people looking for extra heat in the winter time, clean windows allow the sunlight into your home, providing a good source of FREE heat to help save you money. Dirty windows only create a barrier between you and these benefits.
