The Smart Way to Choose a House Washing Company

By: | Tags: | Comments: 0

Here at J&M Window Cleaning, it’s no surprise that we’re best known amongst the good folk of Clarkston, Bloomfield Hills, Rochester Hills, Northville and beyond for… window cleaning! It’s in our name, after all, it’s the service we’ve built our reputation on, and – after almost two decades of doing business – both residential and commercial window cleaning are still our most popular offerings. 

We’re actually much more flexible than you might have known, however! Aside from cleaning windows, we’re also highly adept at the likes of gutter cleaning, water stain removal, high dusting, and house washing. It’s the latter which we want to focus on in this article. 

To the naked eye, it can be pretty straightforward to tell when windows are getting dirty. You’re looking out of them constantly, after all, and – if they’ve been neglected long enough – there can be a noticeable drop in the amount of light that’s coming in from outside. 

By comparison, it can be quite tricky to notice when the exterior of your home itself is getting grubby – particularly if your walls aren’t white, cream, or another light color. We can assure you, though, that they will gradually be suffering from buildups of dirt, algae, moss, and other unwanted substances. And often, you only actually notice this when it’s become an emergency – either when damage has been caused, or your home is simply looking abjectly awful! 

In these situations, most homeowners – whether in Northville, Bloomfield Hills, Rochester Hills, Clarkston, or elsewhere in Michigan – tend to panic. Many either buy or hire high-powered house washing equipment, and attempt to fix the problem for themselves. Between the risks to both your property and yourselves, we would not recommend this under any circumstances. 

Others hire a professional house washing company in Oakland County or the surrounding areas to do the job for them. This is certainly the smarter choice… but you absolutely must do your research beforehand. Not all house washing companies are created equal, after all, and those without the requisite experience and expertise can also end up doing some unfortunate but significant damage. In the worst cases, those companies won’t carry their own insurance, which leaves the onus on you to sort things out. 

If you notice that your house is looking the worse for wear, professional house washing is definitely the route to take. Before you hire anyone, though, you must absolutely check their track record, gauge their experience levels, and speak to them first. These three vital checks will give you an invaluable idea of how good they are, and whether they’ll actually be able to fix the issues. A good house washing company will also take the time to assess your particular problem and property, and decide whether pressure washing is really the right route, or if soft washing would actually be more appropriate. 

While considering your options is definitely the best approach to take, we want to make it perfectly clear that – at J&M Window Cleaning – we fully believe ourselves to fulfil all of those aforementioned criteria. Not only do we have a proven track record of happy customers, stretching back to 2003, but we also carry full liability insurance for every job we undertake. We’re also confident that we know everything that’s worth knowing about house washing, including when soft washing would be a more useful solution, and we’ll happily adapt our approach to your specific needs. 

House washing is an incredibly useful service, but it’s also something that you shouldn’t just rush into. Instead, take the time to research your options, speak to a proven and professional company like J&M Window Cleaning, and then make an informed and confident decision. If you’d like any further advice on soft washing or other house washing services, or to get started booking in a session immediately, simply contact J&M today, do so on (248) 605-2243, or email us at CleanWindows@JMWindowCleaning.com.
