Do Dirty Windows Get Cleaned Often Enough?

Nothing can make your business feel less inviting than dirty windows. They make it difficult to see the outside view, limit the natural light that flows into your facility and can even make it difficult to enjoy the interior space of your business. 

However, cleaning your windows costs money and you probably are unsure how often they really need to be cleaned. Here’s how to decide how often to clean your windows. 


If your business is surrounded by trees and other vegetation, the windows will likely need to be cleaned more frequently thanks to birds and insects that can leave droppings and debris on your windows. In some cases, pollen and sap from the trees can stick to the windows making more frequent cleanings necessary. 


Depending on the time of the year, the rainy seasons often mean that more window cleanings are needed because rain water often leaves spots on the windows. Since the weather is variable, you may sometimes need more cleanings while at other times you can get away with cleaning the windows of the office less often.  


If your business is located in a suburban area away from city streets, then you won't have as many pollutants in the air that are also attracted to the windows. Businesses that are located on busy downtown streets may require more frequent window cleanings. 

Type of Business  

The type of business that you run can also impact your window cleaning schedule. For certain types of businesses, having sparkling clean windows is absolutely a must. However, for industrial facilities, you may be able to get away with allowing the dirt to build up on the windows before they are cleaned.  

Regardless of the type of business that you own, keep in mind that window cleanings are important for extending the life of your windows. If you want your windows to last as long as possible before they need to be replaced, it is a good idea to invest in regular maintenance for your windows.  


Since window cleaning is likely a part of your overall maintenance budget for your business, you should decide how much you can afford to spend on window cleaning without adversely impacting your business. If you are business is in an industry where clean windows are important for maintaining the look of the business, you should make sure that your budget is sufficient to support monthly cleanings.
