You know that exterior window washing makes your home look better, but it can also help you to welcome more natural light into your home. If you love the sun but don’t have time to take a beach vacation, here are some ideas for creating a better and brighter experience at home.
What are the Benefits of Natural Light?
Exposure to natural light has many proven health benefits. One of the most important is its ability to improve your sleep. Your brain hormones actually change in response to light. Brightening your daytime environment helps to make you more alert. It also prepares your body to adjust later so you get drowsy when it’s darker and bedtime nears. The extra light can also boost your mood and productivity, as well as helping you save on energy bills.
How Can You Increase Natural Light?
In addition to keeping your outside windows clean, you may want to use lighter and layered window treatments. Decorating with pale colors also helps, especially on large areas like walls and floors. Of course, spending more time outdoors is ideal, but sparkling clear windows are the next best thing for bringing natural warmth and beauty inside with you.
How Often Should You Wash Your Exterior Windows?
While it’s not uncommon for some homeowners to have their outside windows washed only once a year, you might find it worthwhile to increase that schedule just so you can enjoy more natural light. Of course, there’s also the additional advantages of giving your home more curb appeal and protecting the value of your investment by taking care of your windows with frequent cleaning. In fact, many restaurants and other businesses wash their exterior windows monthly.
