What if it rains on my scheduled outside window cleaning day?
If it is not raining it is our policy to complete the job as scheduled. If it is raining but the precipitation is light we will proceed as scheduled because rain does not affect the cleaning (see next question). In the circumstance of heavy rain/ showers or high winds, we will re-schedule your appointment (usually within 2 or 3 clear days). All inside work may be completed as scheduled to avoid disrupting your busy calendar. If you have an appointment with inside cleaning services we will confirm by telephone the morning of service.
Does the rain make my windows dirty?
Rain does not make the windows dirty, dirt does. Dust accumulates on the outside of the glass from lawn mowers, leaf blowers, tree pollen, car exhaust and many other sources. This dust settles as a uniform layer on the glass. When it rains, the rain drops push the dust into different patterns and after the water dries the dust remains on the glass. This new “mud residue” is now highly visible because it is no longer uniformly spread but is sporadic throughout the pane. Clean glass will stay clean after a rain because once the rain water dries, there is nothing left behind to obscure the view.
