Unger Joins You in Celebrating National Window Cleaning Day
On Monday, May 15, 2023 professional window cleaners gear up to provide a free window cleaning service in their communities to celebrate National Window Cleaning Day. By donating a window cleaning service, industry professionals have the opportunity to showcase the value of clean windows to the community, all while reaping the business benefits of volunteering.
Benefits of Donating Your Window Cleaning Services
Donating your professional window cleaning service can provide a sense of personal fulfillment and satisfaction by allowing you to use your skills for a greater good. Then on the business side, donating your service also showcases your commitment to the community and demonstrates your expertise and integrity. Volunteering can enhance your professional reputation and this positive perception can lead to new opportunities and referrals for your window cleaning business.
Demonstrating Why Cleaning Windows is Important
From promoting a positive first impression to protecting window integrity, as you know, clean windows are essential to the operational and business goals of nearly any facility. National Window Cleaning Day gives you the opportunity to discuss the various benefits of employing professional window cleaning services:
Positive First Impressions
52% of consumers avoid a business if the exterior appearance is unappealing for any reason – from littered parking lots to dirty windows.32% of consumers stuck up their noses at businesses that appear dirty, whether inside or out, and never return.
55% of first impressions are made by what we see, making the presentation and cleanliness of an organization just as important, if not more, as the first impression its people and/or service make. Research by State Systems reported that:
- 52% of consumers avoid a business if the exterior appearance is unappealing for any reason – from littered parking lots to dirty windows.
- 32% of consumers stuck up their noses at businesses that appear dirty, whether inside or out, and never return.
Enhanced Health and Psychological Well-Being
Clean windows allow more light in a facility, specifically ultraviolet light. This type of light is a disinfectant that kills bacteria present in the facility. On the other hand, dirty windows can reduce the amount of natural light (a natural disinfectant) coming into the facility by about 40%.
Longevity of Window and Glass Integrity
Acid rain and hard water contribute to build up on exterior windows, and the dirt and debris that accumulate can also enter the glass pores. Over time, this combination can corrode windows and make them more prone to etching, which is known to weaken glass.
According to the Department of Energy, heat gains and losses through windows can account for 25-30 percent of HVAC-related energy usage. By cleaning and maintaining windows regularly, energy waste is minimized which lowers the load on the HVAC equipment.
