Did you know that over time even the most pristine and brand new windows will become worse affected by the elements unless cleaned regularly?
• Carbon build up
• Mould, mildew and moss
All may cause damage to your windows in the long term. It’s a good idea to clean them regularly to help prevent them from getting damaged and stained.
There are different methods of window cleaning. Luckily, Gloucester is not situated near the sea, so we don’t have to worry too much about the salt and hundreds of seagulls affecting us.
However, if you reside at Gloucester Docks, your windows may be more targeted by the seagulls and regular window cleaning would be advisable.
Occasionally I have noted the clear imprint of a bird’s wings on the glass where Al’s Window Cleaning have cleaned the glass so sparkly clear that the bird has flown directly onto its’ surface.
It’s important to clean your windows on a regular basis for many reasons. Bird droppings are acidic so eventually if not cleaned away may stain and wear away at your UPVC windows.
If you are planning to do some window cleaning yourself make sure you read our ‘Use a Ladder Safely Guide’.
