I’ve already established on previous entries how much of a bore and monotonous activity window cleaning can be. That’s if you are able to get yourself to even start. Ten to twenty minutes into cleaning your windows, you’ll need even more of what helped you start to keep going. That’s the problem with window cleaning. Working up the motivation can be quite the challenge, but here are four strong motivations to get you through the chore:
1. Your image
Dirty windows are unpleasant to the eyes and don’t say much about the hygiene of the owner. Think about this: what do you think a guest who sits in your home will have to say about you when they see your windows? Most of us care about the way people see us. We may try to play it down but deep down as humans, we care a lot about our image. This can be shown by the clothes we wear. You may be running a business in your home or you have windows at your office but one thing is sure, you want to portray a professional image of yourself, you can’t do that if your windows are dirty.
2. Cost of replacement is high
When you neglect your window cleaning responsibility, you risk your glass sustaining some damage to its appearance. Such damages to glass cannot be repaired. They require replacement but it’s not uncommon knowledge that installing or replacing glass to a window properly is an expensive procedure financially and when you clean up your windows regularly, they stay shiny, bright and the glass maintains it’s luster.
I hope you realize that window cleaning is more than just the glass surfaces, it also includes the frame and the frames can also take damages if you don’t clean them regularly
3. You save on energy
Clean windows can make the difference between low and high electric bills. Clean windows let more sunlight into your home, bringing with it the much-needed heat you need to keep your home warm in cold weathers and climates. Consequently, the dependence on your electricity is lowered, saving you money.
4. Better view
Not only will a clean window make your house a pleasing sight for the eyes. It gives you a great and unobtrusive view of your surroundings. This is a plus for you this fall as your windows give you the chance to enjoy the autumn scenery right from the comfort of your home. Wouldn’t you just love to sit in your couch, relaxing, watching the bright colors of fall unfold right before your eyes? Who wouldn’t love that? I will.
These four points should be able to give you enough motivation, not just for starting but to complete the whole chore. Cheers!
