In the busyness of the run-up to Christmas, it can be easy to neglect your windows, both at home and in the workplace. But that can be a mistake, and here are the reasons why…
The dark nights of British wintertime
This might seem counter-intuitive. After all, if it’s dark, you won’t notice dirt on windows so much. But in winter it’s more important than ever to harness the relatively short hours of daylight, especially if you have to spend them indoors. Clean windows let more sun and light in, boosting mood.

Festive visitors dropping in and passing by
This is the month of parties, gatherings and shopping. Every home and business sees more visitors and passers-by at this time of year – and if you have a great tree on display, your windows will be key. This calls for some sprucing up and cleaning of all areas. For shop owners, it’s crucial to ensure that frontages are immaculately presented – it’s all about the Christmas window display. There may be a lot of people out to spend their cash, but there’s also a lot of retail competition, which is why it’s worth doing everything to get ahead.
Increased dirt from December weather
Winter weather brings with it the kind of dirt that affects glass – sleet, snow, ice and rain take their toll. Smoke from wood burners and fires may have a minimal impact, but it does all add up. Leaving your windows longer at this time of year means it’ll make the job harder and longer further down the line. It also carries the risk of some weathering and erosion affecting your sills and glass.
Spring cleaning will be easier
Putting off routine maintenance until spring will mean a deep clean is more expensive and arduous. Take action now and your future self will thank you for not letting it slip over the winter. You can also enjoy sparkling, streak-free windows in the meantime.
