Orange County Gutter Cleaning - Trees and Your Home

When you're deciding what kind of landscaping you want to have at your home, you might be tempted to put in trees close to the house. They add a natural beauty to your yard, they provide shade, and trees are of course an important part of the environment.

There are a few drawbacks to large trees too close to your house, however. For one, large branches can break off and cave in your roof leading to costly repairs. Not all incidents are so dramatic, however, the more common annoyance is rain gutters full of leaves, twigs and other debris. The more trees you have over your rooftops the faster they'll fill up with mud and in a worst case scenario risk your home's foundation due to erosion, in the best case your walls will get covered with debris when it rains.

If you don't want to sacrifice the look of your yard, though, you'll want to call professionals who can help you with your Orange County gutter cleaning. Fortunately Stanley Window Cleaning is here to help! We can clean up your rain gutters and protect your home. And while we're there we can wash your windows too!

Give us a call for a price on Orange County gutter cleaning, don't wait until the rainy season has already started!

Orange County Window Cleaning And It's Four Types Of Glass

Orange County window cleaners regularly work with a number of different types of glass. Additionally and not surprisingly, one of the most common mistakes clients make is assuming that window cleaners work with just one type of glass and that cleaning different buildings requires just one technique. Nothing could be further from the truth however as different types of glass require not only different chemicals but different techniques as well. There are actually several different types of glass that I deal with regularly.
Annealed Glass: This type of glass is actually fairly easy to clean and is also extremely durable with regards to cleaning. This type of glass can be cleaned using a razor blade or scraper to remove debris, water, soap, and other chemicals won't come off. Best of all it it can be cleaned without fear of scratching. Though most people don't know the name of this glass when it breaks it's the type of glass that breaks into big shards which most people who are familiar with.

Heat Strengthened Glass: Heat strengthened glass is glass that has been heat treated to induce surface compression though not to the extent of causing it to "dice" on breaking in the manner of tempered glass. When cleaning this type of glass an Orange County window cleaning specialist must be on the lookout for fabricating debris which can appear anywhere on this type of glass. Though it's not difficult to remove it's often easy to miss so you'll want an Orange County window cleaner that has extensive experience in working with heat strengthened glass.

Tempered Glass: Timber glass is actually heat strengthened four or five times stronger than annealed glass is. To the layperson tempered glass is more commonly known as safety glass. This type of glass can be found just about anywhere and is very common in vehicles. For a professional Orange County window cleaners this can be the most problematic glass to clean. It can be problematic because of the way it is made and when it is made poorly or is just average a window cleaner will spend considerable time getting it clean. If it's made correctly or is high-grade tempered glass there usually isn't a problem or a least a big problem cleaning it.

Low-E: This type of glass is typically seen in homes and buildings because it's made to cool those structures down. It has film that limits UV light from passing through thereby keeping those buildings it's installed in quite cool. When it comes to cleaning this type of glass an experienced Orange County window cleaning specialist should have a little to no problem in getting the job done.

Regardless of what type of building or home you own you'll want to be sure that the Orange County window cleaner you're interested in has experience in cleaning the type of glass your windows are made of.

Orange County Window Cleaners Offering Additional Services

It's a common misconception that professional Orange County window cleaners clean only the interior and exterior of your windows. The truth of the matter however is that while some professional window cleaners offer nothing more than traditional window cleaning services some of them offer a wide array of cleaning services in addition to their basic service packages. These additional services can range from the cleaning of lighting fixtures and window blinds to more intensive services such as the pressure washing of stucco walls, driveways, and walkways.
In fact many of the additional services offered by some professional window cleaners go beyond the definition of simple cleaning. Many of these services such as rain gutter cleanings require a professional Orange County window cleaner to not only climb up on top of the roof or a tall ladder to get the job done but utilize special tools as well that allow them to clean debris from the rain gutters so  that they work properly. Moreover professionals use professional grade tools and chemicals to complete these types of jobs.

There are also those Orange County window cleaners who take their services a step further and offer things like screen repair and even on-site screen fittings. This is good news for homeowners whose screens have become damaged or completely unusable over time. It's also cheaper for a homeowner to selected this type of service that it is to refit the screen themselves or take it to somebody who can do it for them. All of these services are designed by professional window cleaners to save a homeowner both time and money.

While many professional window cleaning firms offer the aforementioned services as part of an extended service plan, the professionals that wish to set them selves apart from the rest of the pack will offer even more esoteric services such as remodeling cleanup services and new construction cleaning services. The window cleaning firms that offer these types of services are generally the most experienced and the most dependable, so when you're looking to hire a professional window cleaner looking at these firms first is a smart move.
