We have been commissioned to clean windows, window frames, fixtures and sensitive parts of historic buildings throughout Gauteng for more than a decade. With our non-invasive and efficient methods, we have perfected getting the job done right first time without having to get in your way.
The South African climate – particularly on the Highveld – is one that continuously piles dirt onto buildings. Summer rain leaves windows covered in water residue, and our dry, windy winters and autumns kick up dust that ends up everywhere. Windows are particularly susceptible to being covered with dust and rain marks, whether they’re at ground level or on hard-to-reach upper floors. As a result, there’s good news and bad news when it comes to the state and maintenance of your windows in South Africa!
The Bad News
The bad news is that dirt corrodes glass and window frames, causing ‘pitting’ and ‘etching’ – where the dirt eats tiny micro-scratches and dents into the glass surface, damaging the glass and making it lose its transparency over time. It’s made worse by particles carried by the wind. Badly etched or pitted glass is permanently damaged, and must be replaced. The best way to avoid this is to keep your windows clean; regular cleaning keeps the glass intact and dramatically extends its lifespan and maintains its clarity. Etching and pitting also damage window frames, so having them cleaned regularly will push back the prospect of having to replace them any time soon.
The Good News
The good news is that The Window and Cleaning Crew is here to prevent that. Windows are our primary focus – whether they are high or low, from homes to large office buildings, our telescopic cleaning technology reaches up to three storeys high. We don’t just leave it at the windows, though: we clean the frames too, as they are just as important to making a striking impression on guests and clients.
We specialise in the following projects:
- Private homes and security estates
- Offices and office parks
- Double volume entrances
- Guesthouses and boutique hotels
- Solar panels
Solar Panel Cleaning
Solar panel cleaning is becoming increasingly popular, considering that they lose up to 60% of their efficacy when the photovoltaic surface is covered with dust or rain residue. Regular cleaning is advised by solar panel manufacturers and installation experts, in order to maintain their generating capacity and not be put under unnecessary strain.
For your convenience, we also offer monthly contracts. We will clean your windows, frames, fittings and solar panels on a regular and convenient basis at great rates. Many of our clients enjoy the peace of mind and cost savings of having one of our professional teams dispatched to keep their homes or offices looking dazzling year-round. For individual projects on private homes, we make it as easy as possible for you: all it takes is one session of one hour, costing R550.00. Contact us for details about our monthly contract options.
