Having clean windows is, for most business owners, probably quite low down on their to-do list. However, there are various benefits associated with window cleaning that aren’t immediately obvious, but certainly highlight the value of clean windows to a business.
Here are 5 key reasons why window cleaning needs to be a business priority
1. It stops the glass from degrading
It’s not common knowledge that glass can degrade, but, if treated poorly, it absolutely can. Acid rain and hard water can damage window frames and sills, as well as the glass itself, while poorly maintained glass can develop tiny cracks that will let in water particles. Eventually, these cracks will grow, the window will become unsafe, and it will need to be replaced; generally at quite a significant cost. Regular cleaning can prevent this.
2. It keeps poor air at bay
This is something else that you’ve likely never considered, but well-maintained glass plays a crucial role in preventing the circulation of dust and dirt particles. Regular cleaning will keep deposits of grime to an absolute minimum, meaning there is far less chance of exacerbating any employees’ breathing problems, and will also stop mould from developing. This is absolutely essential when it comes to embedding health and safety practices in the workplace.
3. It makes the heating more effective (and efficient)
During the winter months, especially in England, it is essential that the work environment is as comfortable for employees as possible. If a window is excessively dirty, then the sun’s rays will not be able to penetrate, and therefore any ‘free’ heat from our solar system’s solitary star will be pushed away. This will mean increased heating costs throughout the year, but especially so in the winter.
4. It makes the view better
This is an obvious benefit of a clean window, but it’s still worthy of being highlighted. If your windows are dirty then they won’t be able to perform their traditional window duties, and this is clearly something that should be avoided.
5. It appeals to customers and clients alike
All businesses have to present themselves in a manner that showcases how professional they are, and cleanliness is absolutely key to giving the ideal first impression.
