Improve the safety of your home

 cleaners make all your openings
 both sparkly and functional.
Anyone with a bucket, squeegee and window mop can call themselves a window cleaner.

Ask questions before you hire just anyone.

A true professional will make sure your windows are not only clean, but functional and will advise you on ways to protect the biggest investment most people ever make – their home. 

Here are five things a truly professional window cleaning service should be able to do for you:

  1. SPOT GENERAL PROBLEMS: First and foremost is identifying problems that need correction. Sashes painted shut, ill-fitting screens, damaged or non-functional window weights in older double hung windows and wood rot on sills are just a few problems that if spotted early can save big expense later.
  2. REMOVE INSECT INFESTATIONS: Bees and hornets build nests behind shutters, wasps build paper nests in between older three-piece storm windows and ladybugs also build nests in channels to winter over, making the window hard to operate.
  3. EXTEND THE LIFE OF YOUR WINDOWS: Old aluminum screens left in place for years gradually etch a pattern of deposits on the glass, much like lime deposits in the shower. Not only is it unattractive, the etched glass is more prone to cracks and chips. A simple treatment of muriatic acid can restore the glass to gleaming brilliance and add years to the working life of the window.
  4. PROVIDE PROPER CLEANING PRODUCTS: If you have leaded glass or stained glass you may be unintentionally damaging it by cleaning it with an ammonia based store brand. Ammonia is a liquid abrasive and the main ingredient in a process called wet sanding. With repeated use, it clouds leaded and stained glass and that damage cannot be repaired. By having a professional look at your windows, you will learn what is safe to use to touch up your own windows.
  5. FIND THE CAUSES OF WINDOW SPOTS: Spots on your glass? Your mulch may be to blame. Cheap mulches often are infested with a fungus aptly named shotgun fungus. When mature, the fungus shoots out black spores that glue themselves to glass and vinyl siding and are very hard to remove completely. A professional window cleaning service will point this out to you and the mulch can be replaced with some of higher quality and your windows and siding will stay cleaner and more attractive longer.

A.L. House Painting and Pressure Washing also offers staining services for decks, porches, patios, stairs and the house itself (interior and exterior).  All your home renovation needs.
