The benefits of hiring a professional window cleaner... The pros & cons of DIY window cleaning.

November 30, 2015

When it comes to deciding whether to hire a professional window cleaner, or tackle the job yourself – the decision is entirely up to you!   Here is a list of pros and cons to help you make an informed decision.  There are a few factors to consider- time, energy, safety, skill and cost.

 

Time.  Typically, for a DIY window cleaner, you come to realize that there’s a ‘knack’ to window cleaning, so of course, it might take more than one attempt to have a window looking right! For the DIY window cleaner, the whole process can take double or triple the time of a professional.  For most people, our weekends are precious time spent with family and friends; and when there’s a lot of other things happening in life, taking an afternoon or an entire day (on a regular basis) to wash windows can be difficult.

 

Energy.  Window cleaning is hard work! Squatting, reaching and climbing requires energy. Cleaning your own windows means working up a sweat and moving muscles you probably haven’t used in a while.  By the time you've finished, you'll have clean windows - but probably a sore back and arms as well!   If you’re not eager to do the physical work, contacting a professional will save you the exhaustion.

 

Safety.  Like many Tasmanians living on a hill, you most likely enjoy a glorious view. To reach those high windows, a ladder is must. Unfortunately, this brings risk to your safety, particularly if it’s been a while since you last used a ladder and if your house is set on sloped terrain. You’ll need to carefully climb up with your tools in hand, balance and clean the window, then safely get back down.  One accidental misstep and you could be seriously injured. The most convincing reason to hire a professional window cleaner in Hobart is due to safety concerns - it’s a smart idea to leave the dangerous work to experienced professionals.

 

Skill. Cleaning is one of those jobs that everyone can do… We all do it - before we leave for work, in the evenings and on weekends.  Cleaning is a necessity of life.   However, with cleaning windows, this is an exception to the rule.  To clean windows and glass PROPERLY, it requires skill – and not everyone has it!  The downside to cleaning windows yourself is the frustration of attempting to clean glass not once, but a few times until you think it looks right – leaving no streaks or watermarks.  The benefits of hiring a professional is that you know it will be done right and see the results every time.

 

Cost.  The supreme benefits of cleaning windows yourself is the cost saving.  Considering all the aspects above – time, energy, safety and skill – choosing a professional window cleaner to do the work is certainly the best choice – but at what price? The question to consider is, what value do I put on my time, energy and safety?  What is the actual cost of hiring a window cleaner?  Many people may be surprised to learn how much window cleaning actually costs. Choosing an experienced and professional window cleaner, who offers affordable pricing can be achieved.

 

ClearVis offers reasonable prices and is happy to customise a regular cleaning schedule to suit your specific needs and budget. For example, you might choose to have all the inside and out windows cleaned (whole package), or just all the outside windows. Alternatively, you might just require certain windows (e.g. the ‘hero’ windows) to be cleaned.

 

ClearVis' pricing varies, depending on:

 

  1. The size of your building

  2. Types of windows

  3. High or difficult to reach windows

  4. Workload (i.e. outside windows only, or whole package- in and out?)
