Will you clean my screens when you wash my windows?
Yes! We spot clean all screens that are installed. Occasionally a more thorough cleaning of the screens may be needed. Make sure to let us know that you would like this service and we will include it in the estimate.
Will you clean around my window frames, or remove any debris?
Yes! We wipe down your window frames while cleaning the panes as a part of the Basic service. On extra dirty panes we can remove any paint, silicone, stickers or random construction debris as needed. These services are not included in our “Basic Window Cleaning Services” but will be included in the estimate for your particular job.
Will you wash my windows if it’s raining outside?
Yes! We can get the job done if it is raining outside. On seldom occasions it is not advisable to clean the windows in especially heavy, windy rain. We'll let you know if the job is not doable on your scheduled day.
Do I need to be home when you are washing my windows?
Your call. Adam Shumays lets you know when he will arrive so you can be home. Many of his customers trust him to do the job and the clean-up without being home, especially for exterior-only window washing. Cleaning your windows may take anywhere from one to ten hours, depending on the number of windows and the ease of accessibility to your windows. If you would like a list of our professional references, please contact Gutters to Shutters here.
Will you damage my tinted windows?
No! It is important to follow your manufacturer’s instructions for the correct drying period after installation, but we do not use ammonia in our cleaning products and your tints will not be affected.
Can you fix my “foggy” windows?
Unfortunately, no. A fogged window means that your window’s seal is leaking and moisture is getting in between your double panes. Typically the window needs to be replaced. We can identify this condition when we find it as the window may still be protected under your manufacturer’s warranty. This kind of window deterioration is not uncommon for insulated windows that are 15 to 20 years old.
Do you take special care to protect my home?
Yes! Inside your home, we remove our shoes, and we cover your flooring and furnishings, as necessary. We wash your windows carefully, making sure not to get water or dirt on any interior surface. Inside, we ask that you clear any items away from your windows, such as plants, knickknacks & papers, before we arrive and, if required, we will help move your furnishings out of the way. Outside, we are careful with exterior landscaping, plants and siding.
Will my windows look sparkling clean for several months?
Yes! At Gutters to Shutters, we use professional tools and products to provide you with a sparkling, streak-free clear view. You will be thrilled with the clarity of your view. For the longest enjoyment of this crystal clear view, we recommend scheduling near the end of the rainy season.
