The Difference Between Window Washing and Window Cleaning

At Pinky’s Prowash, we understand the desire for a sparkling clean home exterior. Natural light streams through clean windows, illuminating your space and creating a sense of invitation. But have you ever wondered what’s the difference between window washing and window cleaning? 

The answer is yes, and understanding the distinction can help you achieve the best results for your home.

Window Washing: A Quick Refresh

Window washing is a basic service that removes dirt, dust, and debris from the glass surface. This is typically done with a squeegee and a cleaning solution. It’s a great option for maintaining your windows between professional cleanings or for addressing a sudden downpour that leaves streaks behind. Here’s what window washing typically entails:

  • Exterior Window Cleaning: Using a cleaning solution and a squeegee, technicians will remove dirt, grime, and cobwebs from the exterior glass surface. This improves the overall look of your home and allows more natural light to enter.
  • Quick Interior Wipe Down: In some cases, window washing services might include a quick wipe down of the window’s interior sills and glass. This is a basic service to remove any dust or debris that may have accumulated.

However, window washing doesn’t address deeper cleaning needs. For a truly polished look and a more thorough cleaning, window cleaning services are the way to go.

Window Cleaning: A Deep Dive for Sparkling Results

Window cleaning is a more comprehensive service that goes beyond just washing the glass. It involves detailed cleaning of the entire window frame, tracks, and sills, along with the glass itself. Professional window cleaning services will deliver the following results for you. Listed below is what you can expect from professional window cleaning services:

  • Detailed Frame Cleaning: Our technicians meticulously clean the window frames, removing dirt, grime, and cobwebs that can accumulate over time. We use appropriate cleaning solutions to ensure a thorough cleaning without damaging the frame material.
  • Track and Sill Scrubbing: Window tracks and sills are breeding grounds for dust, dirt, and even pollen. We use specialized tools and cleaning solutions to remove built-up grime, ensuring a smooth operation for opening and closing windows.
  • Multi-Step Glass Cleaning: Our window cleaning process involves a multi-step approach to achieve a streak-free shine. We use professional-grade cleaning solutions and techniques to remove dirt, dust, water spots, and even stubborn bird droppings.
  • Attention to Detail: At Pinky’s Prowash, we take pride in our attention to detail. We’ll ensure all corners, edges, and crevices of your windows are spotless, leaving your entire window unit sparkling clean.

The Benefits of Professional Window Cleaning Services

Investing in professional window cleaning services offers several advantages beyond just achieving a clear view. Here are some key benefits:

  • Enhanced Curb Appeal: Sparkling windows significantly improve your home’s exterior appearance, boosting curb appeal and creating a more inviting atmosphere.
  • Increased Natural Light: Clean windows allow more natural light to enter your home, brightening your living space and reducing dependence on artificial lighting, which can save you money on energy bills.
  • Improved Indoor Air Quality: Dust and allergens can accumulate on and around windows. Our thorough cleaning process removes these irritants, contributing to a healthier indoor environment for you and your family.
  • Extended Window Lifespan: Regular cleaning helps prevent dirt and grime buildup, which can damage window frames and mechanisms over time. Professional cleaning extends the life of your windows, saving you money on replacements in the long run.
  • Convenience and Safety: Cleaning high windows can be dangerous, especially for second or third stories. Our trained and insured technicians have the equipment and expertise to safely clean all your windows, regardless of height.
