Window Cleaning FAQs
How often should I clean my windows?
There is really no correct answer to this question. This is a personal preference and the frequency varies according the the customer’s likes. Our busy seasons are typically early to late Spring and then again in the Fall, prior to the Holidays. Many of our customers will prefer to have cleanings multiple times throughout the year. We will clean windows all year long, weather permitting.
How does the weather and rain affect my window cleaning?
Northside Window & Gutter Cleaning provides service throughout the entire year. We clean windows in temperatures ranging from 25°F – 100°F+, in both light rain and snow. Rainwater does not create water spots, but rather dust in the air, driving rain through dirty screens, and any water from your hose or sprinkler system will create water spots.
What should I do to prepare for the window cleaning service?
For an interior/exterior window cleaning, there is nothing the homeowner needs to do to prepare for the service. If you have breakables or items that you prefer that our team does not touch, you may want to relocate them away from the windows. Our cleaning teams can work around just about anything and will treat your home with conscious respect. For an exterior only cleaning, the homeowner is typically responsible for removing any exterior window screens prior to our arrival. This is so our cleaning team can properly access the exterior glass and does not need to enter the home. The homeowner does not necessarily need to be home for an exterior window cleaning, as long as there are no exterior window screens installed.
Gutter Cleaning FAQs
Should I invest in gutter guards for my gutter system?
Every home is different and gutter protection is not recommended for all applications. Gutter guard installation is an investment and may not necessarily be the answer to your gutter cleaning concerns. Our trained technicians will come to assess the home and surrounding landscape and advise which style of gutter guard might be appropriate for you and your intended budget. Please refer to our Gutter Guards page for more information on this topic.
Which type of gutter guard should I purchase?
This answer varies. There are hundreds of different types of gutter guards. Northside Window & Gutter Cleaning has experience with most of these. We have three different options that we recommend based on the type of roofing that you have, foliage around the home, and the homeowner’s budget. We DO NOT recommend any of the plastic gutter guards that can be purchased from the big box stores. You will be better of with regular gutter cleaning service than you would spending $1 on these type of gutter guards. We will be happy to discuss this reasoning with you.
Do you offer a warranty on your work?
Northside offers a 100% customer satisfaction guarantee on window cleanings and all work performed. We offer a “First Rain Guarantee” on all of our gutter cleaning options. We also offer a 1 year labor warranty on all gutter guards systems installed. The gutter guards themselves are not warranted, as they do not have any moving parts and can be damaged by falling debris.
