Enjoy the Benefits of Window Washing This Summer
For the greater Cincinnati area, the many benefits of window washing in summer begin with the beautiful views opened up to you by sparkling clean glass. But the benefits of window washing do not end there. Some less obvious advantages to clean windows can actually boost your home’s energy efficiency, saving you money this summer.
Neat and Tidy, Inside and Out
Professionally cleaned windows give your house a well-kept appearance, showing your sense of pride in your Cincinnati area home. Not only will the outside of your home be more attractive, the inside will, too, as clean windows cast no shadows on your home’s interior from pet noseprints, water deposits, or dust and grime. Your home will be more inviting to guests and more livable for you and your family.
From outside, shiny windows show that you are proud of your home’s upkeep, maintaining your property value. From within, the windows form a visual backdrop to your clean and tidy home. Windows smudged with fingerprints or caked with dust detract from your interior décor.
To achieve the benefits of window washing, have your Cincinnati area home’s windows professionally cleaned monthly, especially during the dry, dusty summer when family and friends are outdoors more and your home is brightly lit during longer days. Not only will regular, monthly cleaning keep your home looking good, it actually may save you money in the long run.
One side effect of living near a big city these days is the acidic rain that can fall. This sulfuric acid on windows not only can make them look dingy but also slowly etch the glass and attack the metal frames. Delaying the costs of future window replacement is another of the benefits of window washing.
Clean windows also help avoid water infiltration and air leaks. When neglected windows build up dirt and debris in their horizontal tracks, the windows may not close and seal properly. Your expensively cooled summer air conditioning can escape through these drafty windows. Warm and dirty outside air, as well as rainwater, can seep in.

"Ernie & Mike did a superb job on my new furnace and A/C installation. Despite having more than a day’s work to do, they came in and stayed until the job was done. They were organized, efficient, and protected the rest of the house well. Got both furnace and A/C installed the same day. Ernie was courteous, informative, and clearly knew his job better than anyone I’ve encountered before. The units look so good guests now get The Tour of our new system. Apollo is clearly not a fly-by-night company. I would recommend them to anyone in need of a new furnace and/or A/C."

"I called Apollo because of a water leak I thought I had in our upstairs shower going into the kitchen. Robbie came and assured me everything was fine & looked at all the other plumbing. He ended up changing a few pipes for our washer & clearing a drain. He was very nice & knowledgeable with all my questions. I ended up signing up for the care plan & was very happy with my service."

"The team at Apollo exceeded my expectations. As a business owner, my attention to the details and commitment to providing excellent service is high. From the sales rep. to the installation team, everyone’s performance was outstanding. For example, the installation team went to great lengths to protect our floors, placing floor runners and across the wood floors and up the stairs. They even were spot washing walls upon their departure. I highly recommend this company."

"We scheduled an estimate AND a tune-up. We knew something was wrong with our furnace, but hoped we could make it through the rest of the season. Upon telling Bill what our furnace was doing, he warned us immediately what the possible outcome was going to be; a cracked heat exchanger. He watched the flames roll backward, tested carbon monoxide levels, which were so high they meter’s last reading was 5,600 before saying “high”. He immediately shut it down, tagged it, and explained that with levels that high and children in our home he wanted off right away. He continued his inspection and showed us via a camera that not only was it cracked in multiple places, but had holes all over it. He gave us a few options for repairing it; his knowledge as well as genuine concern was beneficial and refreshing. Luckily we also scheduled an estimator, Micah, to come too and we were able to get costs between repairing and replacing (with several options). We decided to replace with a much higher efficiency furnace and one sized properly to our home. Hands down, not only did they both provide us great service and knowledge, but without sounding dramatic, they may have saved our lives. This was our first time calling Apollo, but it won’t be our last."

"Apollo is an excellent company. I always receive great service. Alex A. was professional and friendly. He kept me informed during the process of checking my furnace and heat pump to make sure they were working properly. The company makes sure you are notified who is coming and when they are on the way. All my interactions with the company have been wonderful."
