Window cleaning is one of those tasks that many people try to do themselves, but it’s often a job that’s better left to the professionals. Here are 7 reasons why Reno/Tahoe homeowners should get their windows professionally cleaned:
1. Improve your home’s energy efficiency
When your windows are clean, they can better reflect sunlight and help keep your home cooler in the summer. In the winter, clean windows will allow more sunlight to enter your home, helping to heat it naturally.
According to the U.S. Department of Energy, heat gains and losses through the windows are responsible for up to 25-30 percent of a home’s HVAC energy consumption. Taking care of your windows with regular cleaning and maintenance can help improve their efficiency and curb this unnecessary energy waste.
2. Increase your home’s value
If you’re thinking of selling your home, potential buyers will certainly be impressed by gleaming windows. In fact, clean windows can actually increase your home’s value.
A study by the National Association of Realtors found that 83% of buyers’ agents said that staging a home – which can include cleaning the windows – makes it easier for potential buyers to see the property’s full potential.
And, according to another study, window cleaning was one of the top five most requested services from professional home cleaners.
So, if you’re looking to boost your home’s curb appeal – and its value – don’t overlook the importance of clean windows.
3. Increase the lifespan of your windows
Not only can clean windows make your home look nicer, but it can also help extend the lifespan of your windows.
Just like stubborn lime deposits cling to showers, unwanted deposits can accumulate on your glass windows from weather and aluminum screens. Over time, these deposits will begin to compromise the integrity of your windows and will make them deteriorate more quickly.
By regularly cleaning your windows, you can help protect them from this damage and increase their overall lifespan.
4. Decrease allergens and insects in your home
Dander, pollen, dust, and other allergens can gather on your window sills and can negatively impact your family’s health. Symptoms such as headaches, fatigue, runny nose, coughing, sneezing, and itchy eyes can result.
Additionally, insects love dirty windows. No one likes spiders in or on their home, but when your windows are dirty, spiders spin webs and catch their insect meals in your window corners and under window sills. Keep wasps, ladybugs, and spiders from inhabiting your home by having your windows professionally cleaned.
Reno Tahoe Window Cleaning helps keep your home free of allergens and insects to keep you and your family healthy and spider-free!
5. Discover window problems early and save on major repairs
Faulty locking mechanisms, broken glass, and other window problems can cause unnecessary home accidents. Old and faulty windows can contribute to the possibility of falls. Over 5,000 falls occur per year from windows, so don’t overlook the importance of functional, intact windows and window locking mechanisms.

Too many people overlook the eroding condition of parts of their home, resulting in larger repair bills, and more time-consuming renovation solutions. By having your windows professionally cleaned and catching problems early, you’ll save on major repair costs in the long run.
6. Improve your home’s aesthetic
When your windows are clean, they can improve your view and make your home more attractive from the outside. That’s because dirt, dust, and grime can build up on your windows over time – making your home look less than its best. In fact, one study found that window cleaning was the most effective way to improve curb appeal.
