The age-old question: when does my home require service(s)?
What are the best times of year for window cleaning, gutter cleaning and other big chores?
Well, we thought we’d help you out by putting together an outline of the best times of year to receive various services on your home. The weather impacts your homes needs in a big way and we realize that. There are times (unfortunately) that we can’t clean your windows or gutters, but that just means that your home is likely in need of other services.
Check out our ‘mock schedule’ for service to keep your home in tip-top shape all year round!
Snow Removal (commercial and residential)
In the wintertime, depending on your location, snow can be a big hassle. Let Men In Kilts take care of your driveways or commercial properties and keep yourself warm inside. We have lots of options to offer you a full season of snow removal at great prices, with reliable, insured technicians.
If snow isn’t an issue for you, then we can clean windows all the way down to -9F or -23C!
The spring is a great time to have your windows cleaned. Wash away all the harshness of winter and let that fresh warm sunlight shine in through clear windows. A cleaning after the severe cold weather will improve the lifespan of your windows.
The spring is also a great time of year for a gutter cleaning because winter and its ugly weather cause havoc to your gutters. Cold temperatures cause your gutters and the gunk inside them to freeze and thaw repeatedly and you will want to get that mess out of there to allow for rain and debris to flow through them with ease. If you fail to remove the debris, it will cause a build-up in your gutters, which will eventually ruin your homes foundation.
After April showers and the general wetness of spring ends, summer is a great time to have your siding cleaned. All that rain leaves its mark on your home, so having it washed away will allow your home to ‘breathe’ again and improve the longevity of your siding!
After your driveway, patios and walkways have endured all the snow, rain, mud and whatever else throughout the cold winter and rainy spring, it is time to give them some TLC. Summer is the best time to get rid of the grime and mildew that has built up around your home, allowing you to enjoy your beautiful patio throughout the summer.
As the weather starts to cool down and rain begins to fall again, having your windows cleaned is a good idea. Not only does cleaning them leave the windows shiny, but technicians will also check for air leaks and damage around the windows from that harsh sun, that will help keep warmth inside throughout the cold months.
The fall is an obvious choice for gutter cleaning because the leaves start falling and you can’t have them clogging up your gutters throughout the dreary winter. Making sure they are free from debris before snow or rain begins to fall, is a smart idea.
Home Service Mock Schedule
The above ‘mock schedule’ is just that; a suggestion! Depending on where you live in North America, your requirements may change and of course you never know what the seasons and weather will bring.
Our general rule of thumb is to have, at the bare minimum, your windows cleaned twice a year, and all of our other services such as pressure washing, gutter cleaning and siding cleaning done once a year (unless you are able to spoil your home with a more frequent cleaning!)
The good news is that yes, in some cases we can offer all of our services year round. Men In Kilts is able to clean windows all the way down to -9F (or -23C), clean gutters until they are frozen and pressure wash until the water stops running!
