It’s that time again. Are you prepared for the Northwest rains? Fall and winter in the Northwest—it’s enough to try anyone’s patience.
That being said, is fall or winter the right time of year to have your windows cleaned?
Well, yes and no. The summer and spring are good, but not always optimal. And here’s why. In the summer and spring there is pollen, dust, and bugs. In the winter and fall, the pollen, dust, and bugs are not around. Despite the season, or the weather, Mr. Glass is an all weather window cleaning company.
Take a look around
Walk around your house inside and inspect your windows. You’ll be surprised, very few windows get pelted by the fall and winter weather.
So what? Well, fall and winter ARE goods times to have your windows professionally cleaned. In fact, Mr. Glass rarely cancels a window cleaning service due to rain.
What kind of windows do you have?
Windows come in all shapes and sizes. Here are a few terms Mr. Glass uses to identify certain types of windows.
Transoms Windows typically above doors or above other windows. These windows originally were hinged and allowed heat from interior spaces.
Lights Lights? That’s right, lights are windows. Glass allowing light to enter an interior space was once commonly referred to as lights. When glass was very expensive, the desirability of a house was determined by how many lights belonged to it, and how much light was allowed into the house.
Side Lights These are the windows on the sides of entry doors. Again, it was considered prestigious to have sidelights. Sometimes, just one on either side of a door. However, both sides of the door are most appealing. They allow the most light in the entry.
Palladian These are windows that look like half circles. They are seen a lot in colonial homes with the Palladian window full of many individual lights. They take there names from a form of architecture known as Palladianism with Italian origins.
