Although window washing may seem like a relatively straightforward and simple task, there are actually many benefits to having your windows washed professionally. This is especially true in a commercial setting where windows reach high above the ground. Here are a few reasons to leave your window washing to the professionals.
Professional window washing services often offer other services as well. For example, Crystal Clear Window Washing specializes in duct and gutter cleaning in addition to window washing. When you have services like these performed in addition to your window washing, you can expect a certain level of quality across the board. This saves you the time and effort of finding another company to complete these tasks.
Window washing professionals are trained to make your windows clearer than they have ever been before. While it may be possible for you to clean them, the average person will typically not be able to achieve such dazzling results. Professionals know what tools to use in any situation and they know exactly how to use their equipment. For homeowners who live in multistory houses, it may even be a hassle to simply reach the windows that they need to clean. Professionals, on the other hand, are knowledgeable, prepared, and ready to clean your largest and highest windows.
When it comes to washing windows, the most affordable solution would be to wash them yourself. However, you are then responsible for purchasing the tools and materials it takes to complete this job; this includes cleaning solution, squeegees, rags, and if necessary ladders and extension poles. Even once you have purchased all of these things, you still may not achieve the same result as a professional would. A professional will come with all of these items and provide you with a pristine cleaning at a reasonable price.

Different projects require different types of paints, so it is helpful to know how they vary from each other. Watch this video to learn about the differences between oil and latex paints.
Oil paint is advantageous in that it can be applied in thick coats that cover the area thoroughly. In addition, it goes on smoother and takes more time to dry. It is typically useful for staining wood. However, oil paint creates strong fumes and is more likely to crack and yellow than latex paints. Latex paints are better for the environment and easier to clean up.
For more information about the differences between oil and latex paints, contact Crystal Clear Window Washing or visit our website. We are proud to serve the Chicago area with a wide selection of washing and cleaning services. If you live in the area, stop by today or give us a call at (972) 200-0437.

If you are considering painting your brick home, there are several factors that you should consider before getting started. Moisture from washing the brick before painting may cause problems, and poor quality bricks may not be suitable for paint. Read on for help in deciding whether or not to paint your brick home.
A brick house can provide aesthetic appeal without requiring any maintenance at all. However, if you decide to paint your brick home, you will likely need to put in some work in the long run. Exterior brick is exposed to the elements and should be painted every three to five years. Since painting brick is not necessarily a simple task, this can be a significant undertaking. In addition, paint is not easy to remove from brick.
Only bricks of a certain quality should be painted; if you paint bricks that are already of poor quality, their problems are likely to get worse. Avoid painting bricks that are chipped or deteriorated. If your brick home shows white residue, wash off the residue and see if it comes back before you decide to paint. If the residue returns, your bricks should not be painted.
If you do decide to paint your brick home, make sure you use a porous, high-quality paint for the outside. However, there are other ways to recolor your brick home, such as professional staining. Whereas a layer of paint on the exterior of a brick can cause problems, stain affects the brick all the way through. In this way you can achieve the look you want without taking on the risks.
If you decide to paint your brick home and would like it to be professionally power washed beforehand, call the washing professionals at Crystal Clear Window Washing. We provide a wide range of washing and cleaning services in the Chicago area. For more information about what we can do for you, please call us at (972) 200-0437 or visit our website.
