Cleaning your windows is not only a great way to prepare for the upcoming holiday season, but also an investment in the well-being of your home. And if you think about it, we don’t change our clothes or shower inside. By cleaning your windows now and throughout the winter months, you can protect them from damage caused by dirt and grime that accumulates on them year-round. Plus, clean windows are just plain easier on the eyes!
Enjoy the beautiful fall foliage
The changing of the seasons is a great reason to wash your windows. As one season gives way to the next, you can see it in all its glory on your own windows and walls. Fall foliage is beautiful, especially if you live somewhere where autumn lasts long enough for you to get a good look at all those leaves turning orange and red before they fall off their trees. No one wants to try and enjoy the beautiful fall scenery and be stuck with looking at a dusty, spiderwebbed window.
Beautify your home for upcoming holidays
Fall is a great time of year to enjoy the autumn weather, especially if you have beautiful windows that can be used as a focal point for your holiday decorations. When you have clean windows to reflect the changing colors of the leaves (or snow), it will add beauty and depth to your decorations. Plus, if you’re planning an outdoor party or get together this fall, clean windows can provide a warm glow for guests when they arrive at your house!
Prevent damage to your window frames and seals
Perhaps the most important reason to wash your windows is to prevent damage to your window seals and frames. If you do not regularly clean them, dirt, debris and insects can enter the home through the windows. This can lead to damage in both summer and winter months as well. In addition, if you live in a climate where snow falls frequently (or even occasionally), it’s important that you keep your windows free of buildup so that they don’t warp or crack when exposed to extreme cold temperatures.
It’s a great first step in winterizing your home
Cleaning your windows is a great way to prepare for winter. It’s easier to clean them when the weather is still warm, before it gets cold and snow is on the ground. Plus, with all that time spent washing your windows you can relax knowing that you won’t have to worry about spending hours on end with a cloth in one hand and a bucket of soapy water in the other while ice forms around you.

Whether you've just moved into a new home or have been living in your house for years, windows are a major part of the value of your home. They can also be damaged by storms and weather, which means they need more care than other parts of your house. A clean window will last longer and maintain its aesthetic appeal when it's free from dirt and grime.
