Why bother cleaning windows?
If you think about it, windows are a wonderful invention. They simultaneously protect our property from the elements, and allow natural light to stream through and illuminate everything.
For the same reason you wouldn’t want to live in a windowless cell, it’s best not to put up with dirty windows. They’re a less extreme version of the same thing. Grime makes the windows less transparent, reducing the quality of light that enters your home and making the sun less effective at heating it during winter.
Dirty windows can promote mould growth and condensation, and increase the number of insects that make a habitat out of your windowsill.
How often should I clean my windows?
The answer is more complicated than you might expect. The speed of grime buildup depends heavily on your environment, your property type, and how well your windows are protected from the elements. The number of times you’ll want to clean them also depends on how much dirt you’re willing to put up with.
In general, we recommend doing a thorough window clean about twice a year. Businesses, which rely heavily on being presentable, should consider cleaning their windows three or four times a year. By “thorough clean”, we mean more than just a classic Kiwi once-over with some window spray and newspaper. This very basic method tends to simply move the dirt around.
If you don’t want to spend your whole weekend trying to master the difficult art of leaving no smudges, the best solution is to enlist the services of a professional window cleaner.
