Pressure Washing 

Just because you can’t see the dirt and grime on the exterior of your home doesn’t mean it’s not there. The accumulated dirt isn’t a reflection of your home maintenance ability. It just happens. Like it or not, your house is always exposed to the elements.

But that doesn’t mean you have to sit idly by as grime dulls your beautiful home. Instead, you can use a pressure washer to remove years of dirt and bring your home’s exterior back to life.

While you could attempt power washing on your own, it is best to avoid the risk of damaging it. Hiring a local power washing company to perform patio cleaning services is the best route. Local power washing companies generally come equipped with the technology and experience to do the job. However, you want to make sure you are hiring a professional power washing company that is fully insured and guarantees their work. For example, JTL Cleaning Services has proven processes and uses safe pressure to ensure everything is up to your standards when we are pressure washing a patio. In fact, we guarantee to deliver the best results for your property using our safe and effective processes. 

Perfect Power Wash offers the following patio pressure washing services: 

  • Concrete patio power washing
  • Power washing stamped concrete 
  • Brick patio power washing
  • Power washing pavers  

Reasons To Clean Your Windows Monthly

Most people take pride in keeping their home clean and tidy, but a lot of people forget the one thing that can add that extra touch to their home – CLEAN WINDOWS!!

Improves your window lifespan

The build-up of dust, grime and dirt around and on your windowsills can lead to wear and tear as oxidisation occurs from acid rain and hard minerals eroded them. By getting into the habit of getting your windows cleaned monthly, you will be protecting them against the elements and keeping them in the best possible condition you can.

Improving your house’s heat

This might be the biggest revelation for keeping a monthly cleaning regime with your windows. By maintaining their appearance, you will be improving your house’s energy efficiency. Dust and dirt particles that accumulate on windows will begin to reflect more UV light and prevent the natural warmth from the sun to penetrate. So by keeping your glass consistently clean can help to improve your heating bills and stop mould from forming which will lead to cold and damp issues.

Keeps up the appearance of your home

Consistent upkeep of your windows will sustain the overall look of your house, creating an attractive outlook to everyone, from passers-by, visitors, friends and family. It is not a crime to want to keep up your standards for your house and if it makes you feel more comfortable in your own home, it is worth it. Retaining the look of your house with clean windows will also help if you ever decide to move home, the outer exterior sparkling will speak volumes about how well you have treated the property.

Improvement overall

That monthly clean of your windows, which at first did not seem so important, has now justified its worth. As you sit in a spotless house with warmer, fresher air circulating your house, you will realise and enjoy the benefits. You will be proud of your home, you will be investing in its care and you may be saving on your energy bills. You can relax knowing your scheduled service for your windows is improving everything around you.

Window Cleaner – Why Every Business Should Have One

If you own or manage a business, you’ll know that there are hundreds of factors that contribute to it running smoothly. From recruiting staff to making sure the tea bags are topped up in the kitchen. All of them are important in there own way. One of the most critical areas in the majority of businesses is maintaining a clean and healthy workspace. Providing a pleasant environment for staff to work will help boost morale and productivity and also help reduce the number of sick days taken. An often overlooked area in many businesses, when it comes to cleaning and maintenance, are the windows. In this post, we look at the business benefits of having clean windows and why you should have a regular office window cleaner.

Staff Morale

As anyone who has managed people will testify a happy worker is more productive than an unhappy worker. Keeping staff morale high is vital for a business to be successful.

What if we told you that keeping your office windows clean could increase staff productivity by 2% and decrease instances of eye strain, headaches and blurred vision by up to 84%.

Studies have shown that exposure to natural daylight is a key factor in our health and wellbeing. Workers in offices with good levels of natural light can be up to 2% more productive than those who work in windowless offices.

We also know that dirty windows can reduce the amount of light that passes through them by up to 30%. So by simply having a regular office window cleaner, you improve your staff productivity.

Reduce Maintenace Costs

Dirty, grimy windows could end up costing your business money. Window glass is a porous surface, and over time it will absorb dirt and grime that is allowed to build up on its surface. Without regular cleaning, glass can become stained and damaged. Damaged glass may reduce the amount of natural light that can pass through it. It will also impede people ability to look through the glass to the outside world, and it presents a poor image to visitors.

Replacing windows is a costly business and one that can be easily avoided through regular window cleaning.

Lower Electricity Bills

As we’ve already stated, dirty windows reduce the amount of natural light that can pass through them. If less light is entering a building through the windows, then the reliance on artificial lighting increases. Every time a light gets switched on, your business is spending money on electricity. If those lights are being switched on simply because you have dirty windows blocking natural light, then you are wasting money.

The Benefits of a Regular Window Cleaning Service

A common question we get asked is why do I need to a regular window cleaning service? At JTL Cleaning Services, we offer both regular, and one off cleans. However, we always recommend a regular cleaning schedule where possible.

In this post, we discuss some of the main benefits of having your windows cleaned on a regular basis.

Improved Window Longevity

Window cleaning helps protect your windows. A build-up of dirt and debris on glass and UPVC frames can cause a lot of damage. The dirt can etch into glass and window frames causing scratches, marks and staining. A professional window cleaning service will remove all the dirt and debris that has built up on the glass itself and the window frames. This will keep your windows looking new for longer and improve their longevity.

Boost Health and Productivity

It’s common knowledge that natural sunlight has a number of great benefits to humans. It can help people feel happier, healthier, calmer and be more productive. A recent survey carried out in the US found that natural light and views of the outdoors were the most important attributes workers looked for in their workplaces.

Dirty and marked windows reduce the amount of natural light that passes through the glass. Smudges and finger marks can create glare and spoil the views from windows for those who want to see the outdoors. A clean environment, whether it is in your home or business, leads to a healthier overall atmosphere.

Stay Safe

Many people who don’t use a professional window cleaning service will instead opt to clean their windows themselves. There is nothing wrong with this, providing people consider their own safety while cleaning. Reaching upstairs windows can be tricky. A professional window cleaner will have the tools required to tackle even the most awkward to reach windows. We have seen many instances where people have injured themselves or fallen while attempting to clean difficult to access windows.

A Better Finish

At JTL Cleaning Services, we have invested a lot of money in the best window cleaning equipment available on the market. Our pure water system leaves a spotless, streak-free finish. It is extremely difficult for anyone attempting to clean their own windows to get close to matching the results our specialist equipment can offer.

It’s Cost Effective

By signing up to a regular window cleaning service, we can charge you less per clean as we know that the dust and dirt build-up will be minimal on each visit. Windows that have not been cleaned for long periods require a lot more time and effort spent on them and we, therefore, need to charge a higher price for the clean.

Why you should have your gutters cleaned professionally!

Gutters are perhaps the forgotten component of a house/building, they are not on show and as they blend in to their surroundings they can go unnoticed and unloved. But neglecting your gutters can be a big mistake and could end up as a costly one as they play an important part of the structure of a house.

As your gutters have a pivotal job, to ensure rainfall goes from your roof and safely down their drains, it is critical that these gutters don’t end up blocked or damaged. If this happens it could cause ramifications structurally and in turn, your property could end up with damp. And the resulting damp could trigger health implications to your family.

So it is a wise move to start thinking more about your gutters and show them some maintenance and the best way to do this is by hiring a professional to tackle them. It is best not to attempt the job yourself as you may be unfamiliar with how to do this correctly and you could incur further damage in the long run. The professional will be able to advise you on all things gutter related, from clearing existing waste to repairing any parts that may already be damaged. They will also have all the necessary equipment and kit to perform the job to the precise standard. By offering services such as jet washing, they will be able to thoroughly clean and unblock all the offending build up and make sure your drains are running to their best capacity.

It is best that you get your gutters cleaned professionally once a year and the best time to do this is at the beginning of winter after all the autumn leaves have fallen as there will be a lot of debris to remove. It is also best to call them in before the weather becomes too severe in the midst of winter and you will be safe in the knowledge that your gutters are safeguarded from potential weather induced hazards for the forthcoming months ahead.

Should You Have Your Windows Cleaned In Rainy Weather?

You have probably heard that cleaning your windows when there is rain in the air is a fool’s errand, a pointless task that will make no difference afterwards. And it has probably become ingrained into you to avoid failing fowl to a wasted task. But what if you live in a town, city or country whose dial seems to be permanently set to rainfall? Will there only ever be a small window of opportunity to have your own windows cleaned?

Well it’s time to dispel this notion as professional window cleaners can complete the job in most weather conditions and are trained to deal with the unpredictability that comes with this. It is also not the actual rain that will make a window dirty but instead the dirt that is already on them.

Windows are designed to use rainwater and sunlight to remove natural dirt and debris from them. But when other factors hit your windows, such as pollen, dust build up and pesky bird droppings and they cling to them, the next time it rains, the water from this will attach itself to the existing dirt. This in turn will make the dirt look worse but only because it was already there and not simply because it rained. If your windows are free of any external dirt, when the rain comes it will simply wash away and leave your glass clean.

Avoiding having your windows cleaned in wet weather will actually, in the long term, make them worse as water stains may build up and take more time to remove. It is important to keep on top of your regular window cleaning routine, to preserve them so that you reap the maximum benefits that clean windows create.

So the next time you see a few droplets on the horizon or the forecast seems to give you a never-ending episode of rainy weather, don’t cancel your window cleaning service. Show Mr Blue Sky who is in charge and maintain the upkeep for healthy clean glass.

So what is soft washing?

Soft washing is a safe and very effective low pressure cleaning method. It allows cleaning and sanitizing from the safety of the ground or a platform using low pressure equipment that will effectively clean and sanitize exterior surfaces with soft washing chemical.

Soft washing takes a scientific approach to cleaning by using quality eco-friendly Softwash products blended for all kinds of projects.

Soft washing is the science behind organic growth; this gives a greater understanding into the most likely causes of organic growth and discolouration. Most of the dirt on properties is living organic bio film or carbon.

Soft wash treatments will treat the root cause of the growths, and kill the spores, without damaging the property or harming the environment in any way. Soft washing treats unwanted biological growth and fungus, moss, red and green algae, bacteria, lichen, pollen, mold and other forms of embedded growth on an exterior surface without high pressure.

By using low pressure pumps to clean and rinse with minimal pressures. Soft washing is the fastest and very effective hard surface cleaning method in the UK market producing excellent results. Soft washing can keep surfaces clean for up to 5 years following treatment dependant on weather conditions and position of property.

It does not “bio accumulate” and breaks down rapidly on contact with soil to give it a very low environmental footprint. So once dry it is harmless to children and pets.

How is Soft washing different to pressure washing?

Pressure washing is when you use high pressure water to remove mold, algae, lichen, moss, and other contaminants from any surface. Pressure washing will give you immediate results that look good however they may last for a short period of time. Traditional power washing methods rely on high pressures to literally, blast dirt and grime from the surface. Unfortunately a high pressure jet wash can sometimes cause  irreversible damage when not used properly and cause unwanted effects if used incorrectly or used on the wrong surface.

Soft washing  advantages over power washing:

  • Uses less water
  • Longer lasting results
  • Little noise
  • Is safe for all known building materials
  • More cost effective clean
  • Kills the spores left behind by pressure washing
  • Does not damage the surface or exaggerate the weathering affect

Why is holiday home cleanliness so important?

The importance of having a high standard of cleanliness cannot be overlooked. First impressions count and can really have an impact on how positively your guests start their well-deserved break.

Cleanliness is frequently commented on in property reviews, which can in turn lead to either a positive or negative impact on your bookings, as guests consider reviews as important first-hand information when researching where to book.

As there is such a wide selection of holiday homes available to let in Pembrokeshire, a cottage with cleanliness issues can quickly find itself losing out to the competition when it comes to bookings.

Who is responsible for organising my holiday home cleaning?

Whilst some owners prefer to be hands on with managing the running of their holiday home, others prefer the support of an agency to organise their changeovers, cleaning, laundry and linen.

How much will it cost to clean my holiday home?

The pricing for cleaning a holiday home can be varied, depending on the size, location and style of the property.

If you’re thinking of letting with JTL Cleaning Services, a member of our team will be able to visit your property and give you a realistic appraisal of the running costs you can expect.
