If you own an apartment building, then you know first-hand how much maintenance is involved! Adding one more maintenance task to your list may not sound appealing at first. However, hiring a professional window cleaning service to come out even once a year really is worth it. Here's why.
Your windows will last longer.
Having to replace windows in an apartment building is a much bigger hassle than having to replace them in your own home. You have to coordinate with tenants to have the window replacement company come into their units. You also have to deal with the paperwork and tax side of making a large upgrade to your building. The longer you can make your current windows last, the better. Window cleaning, especially when done by a professional, can really help your windows last. Removing dirt from the grooves between the glass and the window frames helps keep that dirt from holding onto water, which in turn helps stop the windows from deteriorating.
You won't have to clean the windows yourself.
Cleaning the windows yourself may not be a big deal on the first floor. But climbing up on a ladder to clean second or third-story windows gets more difficult. You don't want to be injured while working on your apartment building. Not only will it hurt, but your medical bills could be substantial. Hiring professionals with the right gear and experience is a much safer way to get clean windows.
Your tenants will be happier.
Tenants don't typically enjoy looking through dirty windows. While this alone may not be a reason for them to leave, it could be one contributing factor among other factors which lead them to decide not to renew their lease. Plus, when you take care of the place, it signals to tenants that they, too, should take good care of the place where they live. Having the windows professionally cleaned will help keep your tenants happy, and happy tenants are more likely to take care of the place, pay rent on time, and renew their lease. You won't get calls with complaints that the windows are dirty, either.
Most professional window cleaning companies are happy to work on apartment buildings, large and small. Give a window cleaning company near you a call, and ask about their rates and services. Once you have your apartment building's windows cleaned once, you'll fully realize the benefits.
