Spruce up your home this Spring!

Let the Sunshine in with Shine-On Window Cleaning.

Warmer weather means spring cleaning is on our minds. And window cleaning is not on anyone’s favorite list! That is where Shine-On Window Cleaning comes in. 

Justin Henneberg can attest to that as owner of Shine-On Window Cleaning. 

“Around nine years ago, after teaching the developmentally disabled for 15 years, I felt ready for a change. While trying to figure out what to do next, I decided to take a job with Shine-On as a window cleaner,” he explained. “I quickly decided that I found the job rewarding and relaxing. This prompted me to buy the Missouri half of the business in 2018.”

Cleaning your windows offers improved aesthetics. He shared that over the winter months, windows, exterior surfaces and gutters accumulate dirt, grime and debris, causing the home to look dull and unkempt. Cleaning them can instantly boost curb appeal, making the home appear fresh and inviting for spring.
As all of us know, looking through dirty windows inhibits light. So clean, shiny windows offer a clearer view.

“Clean windows allow more natural light to enter the home, creating a brighter and more cheerful indoor environment, allowing homeowners to fully enjoy the beauty of the springtime scenery outside,” he continued. “Similarly, clean gutters prevent blockages that can cause water overflow and damage, ensuring proper drainage and preserving the integrity of the home's exterior.”

In addition to cleaning windows, they offer power washing, gutter cleaning and holiday lighting. All the cleaning services they offer are essential components of spring cleaning for several reasons, including maintenance of property value, as a well-maintained home exterior reflects positively on its overall value. 

He mentioned, “By investing in window cleaning, power washing and gutter cleaning as part of their spring-cleaning routine, homeowners demonstrate pride of ownership and ensure that their property remains attractive and marketable should they decide to sell in the future.”
Another thought he suggested is that dirt, mold and debris buildup can actually cause damage to windows, siding and other exterior surfaces over time. Regular cleaning helps prevent deterioration and prolongs the lifespan of these elements, saving homeowners money on repairs and replacements in the long run. Clean gutters also prevent water damage to the roof, walls and foundation, reducing the risk of costly repairs.

“In summary, window cleaning, power washing and gutter cleaning contribute to a cleaner, more attractive home by improving aesthetics, preventing damage and maintaining property value,” he concluded. “Incorporating these maintenance activities into their routine allows homeowners to enjoy a fresh and inviting living environment throughout spring and beyond.”

So, why not cross cleaning windows and such off your list and breathe in springtime!
