Tonight I want to share with you a tip on how to improve the appearance of your home’s interior and exterior and achieve a lighter and brighter look in EVERY room! All you need to do is clean all of your windows! Who knew? Well, you probably already did, but who in the world wants to clean all of their windows? It’s not a fun task to DIY and in my home it’s even a bit dangerous. Fish Foam was one of our Haven sponsors this year. I loved their glass cleaner so much that I was uber excited to try out their Fish Window Cleaning service.
And let’s just say I REALLY needed my windows cleaned. They were beyond embarrassing. And yes, we have a minor spider problem going on outside.
And here is one more picture of just how bad things were around here (just in case the spider egg infestation above wasn’t enough proof for you)….. Okay. Ew. I apparently took the cliche saying “I don’t do windows” a bit too literally for too many years.
The Fish Window Cleaning team attacked every window in a complete cleaning invasion. They even wore booties on their feet! (As if my floors were clean enough to require booties—uh, guys…did you see the my windows?) Matt helped by sitting on the couch and rummaging through a toy basket :). The beauty of hiring other people to do things for you is that you can take pictures of your husband sitting on your couch rummaging through a toy basket!
The Fish Window Cleaning Team were like spider-killing-window-cleaning-superheroes. They even climbed tall ladders to get at all of the hard-to-reach windows!
They didn’t miss a spot! I felt so ashamed that the Fish Team had to deal with all of that filth, but they assured me that they had seen much worse at other residences. (I’m sure they say that to all mortified home owners, but admittedly it made me feel better.)
These two pictures do NOT do justice to the true before and after. Just know that these were the same windows with the spider infestation and grime.
I am thrilled to be able to SEE out of my windows again! It’s lighter and brighter and cleaner looking in every room. Thank you Fish Foam!
If you too want to see out of your windows again, I highly recommend visiting Fish Window Cleaning to see if there is a franchise in your area. Estimates are free so you are able to make an informed decision on the investment beforehand. (FYI: My house is three stories–4 including the basement windows–and 2500 square feet. My cost was estimated at around $330 which covered the cost of a 3 man team and all interior and exterior windows.)
Dislosure: I received window cleaning services free of charge from Fish Window Cleaning but was not compensated for this post. All opinions are my own.
