Our Jupiter Window Cleaning Customer asked, “do I really need to clean my windows regularly”? We say, “sure”! And here is why.

Residential Window Cleaning

Now, let’s get to it.  Our Jupiter window cleaning customer, let’s call her Ms. Jane, is one of our most frequent customers.  She was getting her windows cleaned every 3 months. 

Side note: we offer customers who sign up for a weekly, monthly, quarterly, or semi-annually window cleaning a discount. The more we clean the more you save.

Back to Ms. Jane.  She noticed that her water-front view got a little foggy by the second month after we serviced her windows.  

Of course, if you have a waterfront property, you know that the ocean breeze carries salt deposits on the surfaces of your home and windows.  Naturally they built up and before our 3 month cleaning, and she was well overdue.  She asked us, should I clean in between cleanings?  And we say, “absolutely”.  

The cleaner the windows, the less likely it will experience corrosive effects of dirt, moisture, and continents.  All in all, a regular cleaning of your windows will protect  your investment.  So if you want them to last, or you plan to resell your home, keeping your windows clean will be benefit your pockets.

Furthermore, window cleaning, and screen cleaning, will keep out the pesky insects, spiders, and other bugs that gather around the window frames and make their way into your beautiful home.

It’s important to note that it’s more than just keeping your glass clean, but the screen as well.  



Another side note: at Olaf’s Window Cleaning, we always clean the screens, tracks, and frames of each window.

If you have paid close attention to your windows, you may have noticed that sometimes, the screens get dirtier a little faster than the glass. That’s because dirt and other particles will build upon the screen and then transfer to the glass windows. 


Also worth noting, the area you are in will affect how quickly your windows get dirty.  Jane, for example, our Jupiter window cleaning customer, lives on a waterfront property.  The outside of her windows needs a good cleaning every 2 months.  You may find yourself in a similar predicament if you live in a high traffic area, where road dusk is kicked up.  Additionally, if there are trees that overhang or are near your home, the dirtier your windows will be. That is because dust and pollen will accumulate on your window screens and glass.  


Lastly, let’s consider construction.  Are your neighbors getting a new roof? Is there road work occurring nearby?  These factors also have an effect on the frequency of service needed.


You may be wondering, what is it that you can do to negate this? To begin with, wiping your screens with a damp towel, or lightly brushing off the screens in between cleanings will minimize the dirt.  As we have previously mentioned, the dirt that builds up on your screens will transfer to your windows.  Oftentimes, that transfer occurs when the wind builds overnight moisture that collects on the screens and onto the windows. 


However, If you don’t want to deal with the hassle of cleaning your windows, we say change the frequency.

Ms. Jane used to clean the outside of her windows every three months, but that has now changed to Every two months.  


Your home may  be in a similar location to Ms. Jane’s, or perhaps, you live in a very quiet neighborhood with no construction or surrounding trees.  You might then only have your windows cleaned every 4-6 months. Every customer is different, but we can advise you based on your home’s location and surroundings, or other personal factors.  

We have explored the pros of having a regular window cleaning service in this article, and we hope to have answered any of your questions.  If you have a similar inquiry, we’d love to hear about it.  So feel free to send us a message at [email protected] or call us at 772-204-3067 to let us know what you think.
