We Las Vegas Window Cleaners have our work cut out for us in the coming months. When winter approaches and the weather can be even more unpredictable than normal, taking some time to prepare your windows for winter’s worst weather can help to make them easier to keep clean. Even in Las Vegas there is a potential for snow, and during those rare times when snow does fall in the Las Vegas area, it’s usually thick, wet snow. Those kind of flakes can be the worst for windows since they generally melt as soon as they land instead of falling down to the ground. That means water spots and mineral deposits on your windows serving as a magnet for dirt and other contaminants. Fortunately, we can help to protect your windows during the winter.
Storm Windows and Shutters Help Reduce Dirt
As you likely well know, it can be very windy in the Mojave Desert, particularly here with Las Vegas being nestled among several mountain chains and with the Colorado River acting like a wind funnel. When the days are shorter and there is a greater likelihood of foul weather, using storm shutters and storm window will help to keep your year-round window cleaner while also helping to insulate your home against cold winter weather. Even in Las Vegas, the winter chill can be significant and cause drafts, making homes colder and heating bills costlier. Storm windows and shutters can help to protect against both.
Covering Inside Windows Can Keep Dust Away
Anyone who has lived in northern states during a cold winter is familiar with the fall tradition of sealing off the insides of homes by covering windows with plastic after ensuring all caulk seals, weather stripping, and other preventative maintenance is in place. Spending a few dollars on winter-time window prep materials can keep your home warmer and your heating costs lower while also keeping your windows as safe and clean as possible before it is time for another spring cleaning.
