Regular window cleaning service

How Frequently Should You Book a Window Cleaning Service

As a business, first impressions count. You have only one chance to make a good first impression and the appearance of your premises is what potential customers and clients see before anything else. This is why it is especially important for businesses to keep their windows clean and should book a regular window cleaning service of their premises.

So, how often should you have your windows cleaned?

There is no one-size-fits-all answer to this question. Some windows get more dirty, more often and therefore require more frequent window cleaning.

There are two key factors that influence how often you need commercial window cleaning services depends on the location and type of business.

Let’s look at this in a bit more detail.

    • Location of Business

If your business is located in a high pollution area, or a place where there is a lot of dust in the air, it will probably be necessary to clean windows more often.

Similarly, if your building is situated on a road with heavy traffic, a build-up of car exhaust particles clinging to any existing residue will also make windows appear dirty. If you are based outside of town or in a quiet area, windows will need to be cleaned less frequently.

During the autumn fall season, leaves and debris fall from trees more frequently and cause windows and gutters to become dirty.

Additionally, in areas of high rainfall, windows and gutters may need to be cleaned more often to prevent mineral deposits, smudge and stain marks.

    • Type of Business

It is especially important that restaurants, cafes and retail premises having a lot of customers should clean their windows more regularly, sometimes more than once a month.

Likewise, any business involved in either food preparation or healthcare will require more frequent cleaning.

Most office buildings require cleaning less often, however it is important that the appearance of the building be monitored, as there are always exceptional circumstances.

Why You Should Use Professional Jet Washing Services

It’s important to keep the appearance of your building exteriors are in good shape if you want to increase customers’ trust and the probability of them doing business with your company. With first impressions being key, the outside is an area you should spend a significant amount of time getting right. Every detail count and the floor your customers walk on is a big one. Here’s why you should use jet washing services to clean your building’s communal areas.

Get Rid of the Grime

Throughout the year, a lot of dirt, grime, oil, lichen, and stains build up, giving the floor surrounding your building a dirty look. A jet wash is the most effective and fastest way to clean your paths and stairways. However, it’s important to use the correct jet wash, because not all will do the job properly.

Buying a DIY electric jet wash probably won’t cut it and won’t be able to deep clean the surface. A petrol-driven professionally graded machine is the best way to clean commercial properties and has the power to remove even the most stubborn of stains and lichen with the help of various attachments to aid in each task. These powerful jet washers can be obtained from a local supplier, but it’s best to call a local pressure washing company who can complete the job in a short space of time, leaving amazing results.

An Eco-Friendly Way to Clean Your Commercial Property

There are no harsh chemicals used in the process of jet washing, making it the eco-friendly way to clean your commercial property.

Reduce the Chance of Big Bills in the Future

Grass, weeds, and moss can become a nightmare if not dealt with promptly. The longer they have to mount up, the greater the possibility of huge repair costs down the line. The best way to remove these is by a high-pressure jet wash.

Solar Panel Cleaning Manchester

Solar Panel Cleaning: Why You Should Clean Your Solar Panels For Efficiency?

Much like any other power generator, solar panels require maintenance and regular checks in order to continue operating at maximum efficiency. As solar panels are located outside, it is very easy for them to get dirty over a short period of time. This dirt could come from dust, rain, dirt, leaves, animal dropping to name a few.

Even if the layer of dirt seems insignificant, it can drastically affect the performance of your panels. You will also find that larger areas of dirt or obstructed sections will have a much larger effect on the efficiency of the panels.

How often should Solar Panel be cleaned?

Most owners won’t think to clean their solar panels until there is a problem, but professional solar panel companies would recommend that you have them cleaned and inspected every 6 months.

Getting solar panel cleaning biannually will help prevent any residue building up over a long period and being difficult to remove. It also ensures that you are able to keep them operating efficiently and most importantly allows you to keep track of any cracks or fire risks on your panels.

How much more efficient are solar panels when cleaned?

Whilst in the past it was believed that the rain would be enough to wash away any dirt and debris obstructing the panels, this has been proven to not be the case.

Rainwater contains dirt and pollutants that at first won’t cause any visible build up but after a while will cause surfaces to become clouded.

Solar panels are affected in the same way as windows and need sufficient professional solar panel cleaning to be most effective.

Statistically speaking, having any build up on your solar panels can reduce your system’s energy yield by up to 25%. Over time you will find that this percentage will have a drastic effect on your annual energy yield and cost you more in the long term.

At Archer Window Cleaning, we regularly undertake the professional cleaning of solar panels for commercial and industrial clients throughout the UK. Get in touch with us today to get a free quote!
