The benefits of professional window cleaning are significant

By Wendy O. Dixon

In Northwest Florida, pollen, salt, mold and debris can do damage to your windows and other exterior surfaces of your home. While it is good to keep up a regular cleaning regimen yourself, hiring professional cleaners can offer better results. 

Taylor Wood, licensed and insured owner and operator of Optimum Window Cleaning, started his pressure washing business in 2012 in Atlanta when he was 19 years old. Now 32, he and his fiancé, Kaitlyn Arnett work together running Optimum. 

With spring time comes that dreaded green dust, pollen, which is not only unattractive, it can cause severe allergies. “Spring time is the best time to book a service with us. That’s when everyone starts to come visit our area,” Taylor says. “And if you live here full-time, it’s great to get a spring cleaning.”

Optimum’s services include window cleaning, and pressure and soft washing. “I recommend us cleaning your whole house for allergy spores at least once a year,” Taylor explains. “If you live closer to the water, at least every six months. When you don’t clean windows, irrigation is damaging them with hard water stains. The same is with the house. If you’re not maintaining your property, the paint will chip, algae gets into stucco, and as algae spreads it can also soften wood.”

Taylor uses professional-grade equipment and high-quality cleaning solutions. With the years of experience he brings to the job, as well as his knowledge of the climate, it’s easy to see why Optimum is a popular choice for homeowners.

For home maintenance, this is a relatively low-cost job that can fit into your home maintenance budget. The average cost to clean windows is about $400. Prices depend on the size of the windows, the number of windows and how dirty they are.  When comparing it to the cost of the equipment, cleaning solutions and time you would expend if trying to do this yourself, it’s a smart job to out-source.
