The Environment Is A Top Priority For Shimmer

Shimmer Glass Cleaning are focused on preserving the environment for the good of generations to come and this means acting responsibly when carrying out our window cleaning and high pressure cleaning work across Greater Sydney.

We do not use any harsh chemicals and in fact using our pure water water-fed pole system we do not use any chemicals at all as the filtration system removes all of the impurities from the water and allows us to leave the glass sparkling clean and it will stay cleaner for longer as no soap residue is left on the glass which attracts pollen and dust particles.

When working with a squeegee and mop we use a gentle detergent that has been tested on the environment to ensure no impact once disposed off down the drain.

Our systems use a very low level of water and we always ensure that there is adequate run off into the surrounding gardens to ensure no water is wasted.

The Benefits Of Regular Window 

Regular Window Cleaning

Have you ever cleaned your windows by yourself and then become frustrated with the streaks left behind?

Then it is time you hired the services of a professional window cleaner. Shimmer Glass cleaning provides you the opportunity to enjoy looking out of your spotless windows. Clean windows will last longer as the build-up of harmful substances that cause frame-deterioration can be prevented. Clean windows also let in more light, keep out weather and provide beautiful views.

Save Time

Cleaning windows is a time consuming task if you do not know how to do it and you will have to spend your entire day in cleaning them. However, when you hire a professional cleaner to clean your windows, they are expertized to do a good job quickly and they also have the equipment to do it.

Spotless Windows

Regular professional window cleaning will also help remove the marks that will stain the glass permanently if left un-removed for too long. The experience, equipment and professional cleaning compounds they use will make your glass sparkle and keep them streak free until the next appointment. A clean and spotless window will impress your family and friends, and you will be the envy of your neighbours.

Extend The Life Of Your Windows

The routine cleaning of your windows can protect and extend their life. Over time, windows gather dust, dirt, oxidation and other corrosive substances. Regular window cleaning will help remove contaminants like hard minerals, acid rain and mildew. By removing these contaminants, you can save your window from permanent damage, which may lead to window replacement.

Save Money

Professional window cleaning is a little expensive when compared to cleaning the windows yourself, but when you consider the cost of professional cleaning solutions, static-free rags, squeegees, ladders and other equipment you may need to get the same results as the pros, the cost of professional window cleaning is quite reasonable. Regular window cleaning will ensure that you do not have to replace them, which is very expensive.

Benefits Of Hiring A Professional Window Cleaning Company

  • Enjoy having spotless windows.
  • Increase your window’s life span.
  • Prevent permanent stains.
  • Save money on a cost-per-clean basis.
  • Impress family, friends and neighbours. 

Having your windows cleaned by a professional window cleaning company will ensure that they not only look amazing, but they last longer too!

How Often Should We Clean Our Windows?

This is a question we often get asked at Shimmer Glass Cleaning. The frequency required for window cleaning depends on a number of factors:

Your own personal preference

Some people just prefer to have their windows cleaned more often as they enjoy being able to enjoy their view and surroundings while others like to prepare their home or business for a special event such as a party or an inspection.

Proximity to busy roads / construction / ocean

Silt, sand and dust can cause your windows, frames and building to deteriorate over time so if you live close to any of these things we recommend cleaning your windows quarterly

Protecting your house or building

We recommend as an absolute minimum that you give your prized asset a thorough wash down at least once a year. The air pollution will over time eat away at your property and paint and window insurers make it a regulation to clean annually in order to maintain your warranties for this very reason.

Making a good first impression

If you are somebody that prides themself on their appearance then taking care of your glass and building is no exception. If your business is in a high traffic area or you have lots of visitors to your home then a more regular clean is appropriate. Shimmer Glass Cleaning offers discounted rates for locking in regular window cleans and building washes.

How Dirty Commercial Windows Affect Your Work

Commercial Window Cleaning

Commercial windows need to be cleaned to bring in natural light and enhance the structure of the building. When the windows become murky, you could hardly see the movement outside because they are covered with dust, moulds and watermarks that become an eyesore.

Instead of providing an airy atmosphere and positive energy, the room turns into yin. Working in a sullen environment can make you unproductive and moody. To lighten your staff’s mood, you need to have a commercial window cleaning which needs to be done every 6 months. There are cleaning services that specialize on both residential and  windows including high-rise and mid-rise windows.

These people are experts on cleaning hard-to-reach surfaces because employ cleaning techniques and the proper care of window glass. Most utility personnel use abrasive pads and harmful chemicals when scrubbing the windows that can worsen their condition. Since they do not have the necessary equipment to clean the window, they fall from the building.

Hiring the services of commercial window cleaners can save you from financial burden and the result is worth your investment. Screened windows are more difficult to clean and relying on inept people can delay the work. Regular cleaning is important to avoid condensation and mould infestation. The dust and dirt if not cleaned will become a permanent problem.

When the windows are clean, you feel happy and inspired. Truly, there is a connection between clean windows and your behaviour. Based on the Chinese principles of Feng Shui, dirty and dilapidated windows may hamper the flow of money. Business becomes slow and the employees feel depressed.

With a clean window, your employee’s energy is high and lively as they can look the panoramic view outside that can lift up their spirit. Employing the services of commercial window cleaners will help productivity and lift the mood of the office. It also removes unwanted dirt and the windows are thoroughly cleaned; thus preventing irreparable damage and additional cost in the future.
