Windows are vital for any structure. Without them, the rooms would definitely be a lot more
dark and dingy. You'd spend more to run electrical systems for lighting up the space, and would feel chocked each time you walked into the area. The widows help in regulating air and light flow into the building. It makes the interior space appear larger and more open by brightening up the ambience. There are numerous styles to choose from for your residential or commercial property, ranging from traditional looks to modern themes. For the modern touch, popular installations include casement windows and the large fixed windows. They put
more emphasis on minimalism, removing the clutter to streamline the overall look of the building. It's about getting more focus on the structures as a whole, instead of a few intricate details. The grilles and muntins are done away with, to keep the glass areas unobstructed. For the fixed windows, all there is is the glass and frame. Hence, you get a superb view of the outdoors each time you draw the curtains. There are those who go all the way out and
line up the fixed windows, literally creating a glass wall that lets more light into the building. One can also opt for the speciality windows that deliver a unique look, and gives you the edge. On the other side of the scale are those who are looking for a traditional look. Take for instance the sliding panels, which are used for Ranch or Prairie-themed homes. They highlight the horizontal lines. Double hung windows on the other hand come with two sashes, which are movable. One section slides up, and the other down. They give a classic appearance that blends well with Victorian or even Cape Cod home styles. The traditional casement windows come with grilles that divide the glass, accentuating the detail, and are popular with Craftsman bungalow, Tudor and the French eclectic architectural designs. Getting the installation costs a pretty penny, and it’s worth it. However, you don’t want to watch all this go down the drain. Proper maintenance is required to protect your investment. That's right up the alley of our professional window cleaning Dublin crew.

seal more lucrative deals. Getting rid of the dirt and grime that forms on the window will put you on the right trajectory. For this, turn to the window cleaning Dublin specialists.
The Gunk Piling Up On The Window
The dirt and grime that's building up on the windows and taking away its elegance comes from different sources. Some are environmental, such as the dust that is blown onto the window by gusts of wind, the exhaust from vehicles passing by, all through to the occasional streaks of insect gunk left all over the surface. This is especially those ones that crawl on the window, depositing body waste on the glass and even issues like spider spray left that winded up on the window as you were getting rid of the creatures. Birds too are not left behind. As they chirp in the morning when outside the bedroom window perched on the sill, they can also deposit faecal waste, which will need to be cleaned off. Add to this substances such as pollen, and even tree sap like on those windows near trees along the sides of parking lots. As the dirt accumulates, it can affect the window's functionality. For instance, the gunk on the sills can hamper closing and opening operations, causing extra effort to be used, which can even lead to breakages. From the dust layers that form which reduce the transparency of the glass, to those unsightly smudges that quickly grab the attention of anyone walking into the premises, you want to get rid of them. Hiring professional window cleaning Dublin services will enable you to achieve this.
Rain is a huge factor that leads to dirty windows. The water itself is not the issue. In fact,
since it’s distilled, the windows should come out sparkling after every storm. However, this is not the case. Due to chemical compounds in the air, such as nitrogen and sulphur oxides from nearby factories, acid rain is a common phenomenon. The compounds react with the water and get washed down onto the windows, ruining the glass. You don’t have to be living close to industrial plants. The acid rain can have been carried onto the area from places that are miles away, being dropped onto your locality. As the rain washes down the buildings roofs and walls, it also picks up dirt that can be transferred onto the window. There are also those cases where the window is already dirty, with its even layer of dust that had formed on it. The rain comes in to muddy it all up, causing unsightly streaks to form as the water droplets roll down the glass surface. On top of this are those situations where one has installed screens. They keep the dirt from getting to the windows, but during a heavy downpour, the substances get spread onto the glass. When it comes to water, even the sprinkler systems used in the yard close to the building affect them, plus those times when one decides to wash the windows with ground water delivered through a garden hose.
This water has mineral elements in it. As they splash away the gunk from the windows, it will look clean, but when the water evaporates, dull spots form. This is because the minerals in the water are deposited on the glass surface, thus adding to your troubles.
There are occasions in which oxidizing occurs. Here, the glass window panes get hazy, or
get a white and etched appearance. This is especially for those with metal window frames or screens. When the structure is exposed to humid or wet conditions, the metal reacts, which then spreads to the glass. Simple scrubbing doesn’t fix this. The stains formed need specialist window cleaning products to get rid of them. For buildings where there have been recent construction jobs, or remodelling tasks, mortars, accidental paint and chalk can have winded up on the widows, and will need thorough cleaning to remove.
Your kids and pets also factor in. From your dog pressing its nose and paws against the glass to peer through the window, to the little ones grabbing a marker pen and deciding to showcase their artistry on the glass, you end up with a mess that ruins the appeal of the glass. Hands too secrete oils that end up on the window, together with the fingerprints left behind, plus the actual dirt that was on the hands which gets transferred onto the window. In business premises, there is the added issue of posters and adverts being put up, especially when you want to promote your products and attract more customers into the premises.
Removing the stickers and labels from the windows can lead to marks being left on the glass, whether it’s residue from the paper products that were used, or the remnants of the adhesive itself. Your windows don’t have to remain with the unsightly patches. Call in our professional team to get them sparkling.
Effects Of DIY Window Cleaning
DIY window cleaning is more trouble than it’s worth. From acquiring the right equipment
and solutions, the actual cleaning itself and getting results, there are plenty of things that can get out of hand, frustrating you and forcing you to incur losses. Missing some areas due to not being keen on the details can leave you with a soiled window, meaning that you have to repeat the process, while using water that’s under too much pressure can straight out shatter the glass. The latter can especially occur when pressure washing systems are involved. The water jets that are used to clean the walls and driveways are not meant to be
used on the glass- it's simply not as tough. Damaging the seals, frames or the glass itself forces water into the building. Interior surfaces, from the floors and artefacts, to the furnishings themselves, get covered in water, further inconveniencing you at home and crippling your business operations. Broken seals in the case of double and triple paned-windows also cause a foggy-effect. Here, moisture gets in between the layers, reducing the transparency. Getting this fixed costs quite the pretty penny. Note that the cleaning solutions used will inadvertently drip down to the window frames. Harsh agents can cause reactions with the metal or wood.
Unsatisfactory results can drive you over the edge, especially after spending hours on the
window cleaning. Getting the desired outcome can be hampered by a wide range of factors. For starters, there’s getting the required products. For instance, there are stains from insect gunk and "bird bombs", plus the oxidation effects from metal frames, that require tough cleaning agents to get rid of. Distilled water may not be sufficient. There are also those who use hard water, splashing it all over the window. As it dries, it leaves behind sediments. Smears and streaks from soapy solutions that are not properly rinsed off can also occur. Even forgetting to overlap the swipes and not removing the excess water can leave behind smears on the window. These are not just unsightly, but they also increase the rate of resoiling. There are also those instances when one opts for a paper towel. Scrunching them up and using them on the windows leaves behind static charges, which turn the glass into a dust magnet. You end up being forced to redo the cleaning sooner than you had anticipated. Speaking of paper, going for those with print on them, such as newspapers to do the cleaning, can cause the ink to be smeared onto the glass, increasing your workload to get rid of the marks formed. When hard-bristled brushes are used, there is the risk of scratching the window. Some scratches are so small that they are not noticeable during the cleaning itself, but will be screaming for attention once the water dries off. You will notice them each time you look through the glass. There are cases of persons using tools like razor blades to try and pry of the stuck on gunk from the glass and sills, still running the risk of scratching the glass underneath.
You’re relatively safe when both feet are on the ground- but what of the high rise windows, like in business complexes and storied houses? Getting to them may necessitate acquiring a ladder. This comes with the danger of fall accidents. The higher the windows are, the greater the severity of the injury from the all. It's tricky business, balancing the cleaning equipment and keeping a firm footing on the steps of the ladder. Many have lost their grip trying to get to those difficult corners of the windows, and end up crashing down to the ground, the equipment and ladder following through. Issues like sprains and fractures can result. You wanted to get a sparkling window, not find yourself in the emergency room nursing a broken limb. As the ladder topples down, it destroys items in its path- like those lovely flowers in the vases right under the window. Even your landscaping can get affected.
Why You Should Turn To The Professional Window Cleaning Dublin Team
1. Highly effective equipment
You want quality results, and we have invested in the equipment needed to make that happen. The truck mounted systems used deliver jets of water at a high flow rate to wash
away the grime, and this, coupled with the soft bristled brushes ensure that the glass is left spotless. The water itself is pure, having been taken through reverse osmosis and deionization processes to remove the minerals, and provide incredible cleaning action. Water fed poles get to those high rise windows with ease, and the scrubbing action of the brushes gets rid of the stuck-on residue from everyday soiling, those trails left behind by slugs crisscrossing the window, all through to spider cobwebs, insect nests and bird gunk. Since
chemicals and detergents are not incorporated into the process, there won’t be a sticky film left behind after the cleaning is done. In fact, the pure water process is so effective that it doesn’t need to be cleared with a squeegee, and can be left to dry off naturally without any streaks, smears or marks forming. This also means that you window gets to stay clean for longer, and there will be nothing on the glass surface for dirt to adhere to easily. The measures taken also cover the window frames and the sills. After all, you don’t want it to rain and then all gunk from the frames getting washed back onto the window, taking you back to the beginning. Those thin and stubborn films that could have been left behind when traditional
cleaning processes involving detergents were used are also removed with a couple of passes of the pure water fed pole system. In addition, for those tricky spots and stains from issues like oxidation, our personnel apply specialised cleaning solutions to restore the sparkle to the glass.

Basically, the dirt and dust layers block sufficient daylight from entering the interior space, and the building's occupants compensate for this by turning on more overhead lighting, and running the heating and air conditioning units for longer. Regular window cleaning Dublin sessions enable the heat flow in and out of the building to remain at the desired levels. With a balance in
temperature, you get to prevent your home from freezing during those cold nights, or turning your office into an oven during those hot afternoons. Every degree counts, and hence the window cleaning also enables you to lower your energy consumption.

Each time you draw your curtains in the morning, or stare out as you relax in the afternoon, you want to be able to take in the scenery without the dirt spots impeding your view. What’s more, those stains and smudges cast shadows in the interior space, ruining the ambience. The same case applies to business premises. In addition to the discomfort, the dirt also turns off clients coming to your enterprise to seek your products and services. Those smudges on the window, plus the dull state of affairs, erodes their confidence in what you have to offer. Consumer trust is key if you intend of growing your market share. You don't want your branding and marketing efforts to go down the drain because customers arriving on your property get irked off by the streaks and smudges that are clouding the glass.

4. Keep your windows elegant for longer
You want your windows to last. After all, it cost a huge amount to have them installed. You
don’t want dirt and grime wearing down the window frames, or staining the glass panes. Take for instances buildings with concrete. The minerals used to manufacture the concrete leach out over time due to being constantly barraged by the elements, and streak down the wall and end up on any windows on their path. The concrete leaching leaves behind mineral streaks and hard stains, and if left to settle can permanently etch the glass. As the debris piles up, irreversible damage can end up occurring, such as scratches forming. These
bring about distortions, and together with the stains and dirt spots, make your windows difficult to look out of. You end up being forced to invest in hefty repair and replacement costs. All this can be avoided by simply scheduling regular window cleaning Dublin services.
