Pro VS Self?


WARNING! We don’t recommend to clean windows by yourself, unless you live in a private 1-2 story house. If you live in a high-rise building or even a brownstone, dealing with windows is inherently dangerous not just for your own health, but also for the people who are walking on the street below you. Very often windows and screens are in poor shape and can crack and/or fall off the frame if incorrectly opened. Same goes for the tools in your hands.

By cleaning windows in your home by yourself or allowing a non-professional to do it for you – you are putting yourself into an unlimited risk!

In addition – time is money. You will clean windows at least 3-5 times slower than the slowest professional window cleaner. Think about the cost of your time and compare it to the cost of professional window cleaning service. It is a no-win situation, guaranteed. PLEASE DON’T DO IT YOURSELF!
