As the building and maintenance supervisor of a commercial building in the Chicago Metropolitan area, you are tasked with a variety of maintenance items; carpet cleaning, roof inspections, air conditioning maintenance, the list goes on and on!
However, one item that may not be on your maintenance checklist is regular window cleaning. You may not think that window washing is an important ‘maintenance’ issue, but it really can be!
Not only does regular window cleaning keep your commercial facility windows crystal clear, but it also helps to keep spider webs, dust, debris and the fallout from bird impacts with your windows at a minimum.
However, regular window cleaning can also help with damage that can occur to your windows. A number of environmental factors can permanently damage your windows. These include hard water stains from concrete leaching.
Many commercial buildings in the Chicago Area are built with concrete that is on the same vertical plane as the windows. As time goes by, calcium and other minerals used in the manufacturing process of concrete leach out of a building’s walls. You may have noticed vertical streaks on concrete walls.
Unfortunately, if the concrete wall is above a window that mineral streak is deposited onto the glass. This is a very slow process that occurs over months and years. These mineral streaks can leave your expensive glass with permanent damage. There are ways to remove these mineral deposits from windows, but it can be very costly and labor intensive.
The best solution for protecting your building’s glass is simple and regular cleaning.
Here at Green Clean Window Cleaning, we recommend quarterly window cleaning for commercial properties. Not only does this clean off minor mineral deposits before they have the opportunity to etch their way into the glass, but it also keeps your building clean and professional looking for your staff, clients and visitors.
