Commercial Window Power Washing
If you are in charge of maintenance for a commercial building, handling the window cleaning can be one of the more challenging aspects of your job. Depending on the arrangements you have with your building’s internal cleaning crews or with your tenants, interior window cleaning may already be covered. However, one thing we know about windows is that, in most circumstances, interior window surfaces accumulate far less dirt and grime than exterior window surfaces. You can faithfully clean and maintain the insides of windows as much as you want and your windows are still going to get visible grime and lose their luster if you do not have the outside of the windows cleaned regularly.
There are a few different approaches you can take with exterior window cleaning. You can hire a glass cleaning service to handle the window exteriors. There is nothing wrong with this option, and, in fact, if your building is sufficiently tall, you will need to choose this option, at least for your higher floors. However, there is a quicker, less expensive, and more efficient way to handle cleaning the glass on your commercial building. Power washing offers you a clean, dirt-free, streak-free finish and can often be accomplished in a matter of hours, depending on the size of your commercial building.
Not all commercial windows can be safely power washed. This is not really due to the windows, themselves, but to the fittings around the windows. While examining the property to provide a bid for service, the power washing technicians from Absolute Power Wash will look at the condition of your windows. If they appear to have any gaps in their seals or weather stripping, we may advise skipping some windows or even choosing an alternate cleaning method. This is because, for unsealed windows, pressure washing can cause water to get into your building.
However, if your windows are in good condition, pressure washing is the fastest way to clean windows. In just a few hours, we can remove years of accumulated dirt, pollen, mold, mildew, and chemical buildup from your windows. This lets the light shine in and immediately gives your building a better appearance. When combined with other exterior power washing services, it can take years off of the appearance of your building. Most importantly, by removing these damaging and potentially corrosive agents, you can help prolong the life of your surfaces, reducing your overall maintenance costs.
