Preserving Manchester’s Architecture

Manchester’s architecture combines new with old to create a built environment that is as eclectic as its inhabitants.

An area’s architecture not only contributes to its culture and atmosphere, but also has a psychological effect on those visiting or living there.

Here at Archer Window Cleaning we believe that looking after and preserving Manchester’s architecture is extremely important. As well as being aesthetically pleasing, when maintained, our architecture can also improve quality of life and help drive the economy.

In Manchester we are architecturally spoilt, with Modern, Georgian, Victorian, Roman and Gothic architecture all nestled side-by-side throughout the city.  Perhaps the most iconic architecture of Manchester though is its old warehouses, canals and red brick cotton mills, reminders of its rise during the Industrial Revolution.

Why You Shouldn’t Have Your Windows Cleaned on a Sunny Day

Whilst the sun is great at showing up dirt and smears on windows, it’s best to wait until an overcast day before tackling the job.

It may seem like it makes sense to clean your windows with the warm sun streaming through them, showing up all the dirty patches, but high temperatures and bright sunshine actually create the worst conditions for window cleaning.

During hot and sunny weather, the heat from the sun’s rays causes the cleaning solution to dry on the glass too quickly.  This will end up leaving more smudges and smears behind, making it difficult to get a perfect finish.  Cool and overcast weather creates the best conditions for achieving a flawless finish when washing windows.

Of course, if it’s the middle of summer, having your windows cleaned on a warm and sunny day may be unavoidable. In this case, it’s best to have the job completed early in the day before the sun gets too high in the sky.

You can read the full story from The Bolton News below:

Two heroic Bolton window cleaners rushed to the aid of a woman being attacked.

John Stephens, 38, and a colleague were working on a job in a Liverpool back street when they heard screaming.

“At first I thought it was just students messing around, but the second scream was blood-curdling and we knew it was something serious,” said Mr Stephens, of Great Lever.

Without a thought for their own safety, they rushed to see what the noise was and found a man attacking a woman who was on her way to work.

What Do Dirty Windows Say About Your Business?

Whilst dirty windows may not directly influence your business’ success, they could be having more of an impact than you realise.

First impressions count; and at Archer Window Cleaning we help businesses to make a sparkling first impression, to give them the best chance of success.

Whilst the cleanliness of your windows may seem like a trivial detail and not feature prominently on your to-do list, a build-up of dirt and grimy streaks can have a psychological impact on both employees working inside your building and potential customers viewing your business from outside.

Just a few of the presumptions people may make about your business if your premises have dirty windows include:

  • You’re not very professional.
  • You don’t have the budget to get them cleaned.
  • You don’t look after your property.
  • You’re not bothered what customers or clients think.
  • You’re not bothered about your employees’ wellbeing.
