A regular window washing routine, recommended by professionals should be done twice a year, in spring and fall. This routine is suited for regions with four season climate and changing temperatures. Chicago and its suburbs belong to this region, as it has hot summers and very cold winters.
Dust and debris constantly accumulate in layers on the windows, which over time becomes polluted with contaminants and worsens the air quality.
It is best if special eco-friendly cleaning products are used to wash the windows, not all of which are familiar to people who aren’t in the cleaning industry. What is typically used in window washing - hot water and ammonia for the shine - does not necessarily give the significant effect. This kind of mix removes only the top surface layer of dust and dirt, and it leaves behind a layer of residue which accumulates for years and can’t be lifted with regular cleaning products.
The recommended twice a year method is because of the different kinds of dust and dirt that lands on your window surface. In summer it’s pollen from plants, and in winter it’s dirt and grime. By washing the windows, we penetrate these layers thoroughly to not allow accumulation of contaminants and pollutants on glass and frames that are harmful to humans and animals. Ventilating the spaces in your home can spread not only air already contaminated with impurities from outside, but also dust particles from everything that has built up on windows and frames.
Hygienists claim that people’s health is dependent on the amount of lighting indoors. It is for a reason that in old houses, there would be a window installed in bathrooms and powder rooms to allow more light in. Dirty windows reduce indoor lighting, and directly affects people’s health. The lighter the room, the better a person feels.
Some particles in the water and minerals are harmful for your windows, creating small cracks and scratches in the glass before it deteriorates. And all of that is the result of long dust exposure. Window manufacturers recommend cleaning your windows regularly to extend their life and service.
