How To Hire A Mississauga Window Cleaning Company

There are many ways one can go about finding a reputable window cleaning company to clean the windows of your Mississauga home. This is quite a concern for home owners and business owners alike, as all building that have windows should make sure those windows are cleaned often and looking their best. Not only does this allow sunlight to come into the building, reducing the cost of electricity since many times people can just make use of the sunlight to brighten up their building, but it also makes your home or business look it’s best. Sparkling clean windows allows for people to see in and out of your building and ensuring that your building looks it’s best, in the Mississauga region at least, is not a difficult task. We spoke with a window cleaner, NICK’S Window Cleaning who services Mississauga to find out how they recommend home owners find a high-quality contractor.

Great Window Cleaners Have Great Reviews

One thing a person should do whenever they are looking for a contractor, of any sort, is to check out their online reviews. Now, it’s not as simple as finding the company with the highest amount of stars and highest amount of reviews. It’s important to take a good look at the reviews that have been left to really get an understanding of the business and to see if those reviews are actually legitimate reviews. For instance, if you see a lot of foreign names leaving reviews and the English writing quality is rather poor, it can be an indication that the window cleaning company has paid for those reviews – while it does not make a statement about the quality of the service that contractor provides, it does make it difficult to ascertain the true value of their service.

Make sure the reviews that have been left actually make sense but also make sure that they are describing the service you are looking for. If the contractor has tons of commercial reviews, and little to no residential reviews it can be an indication that they do not really provide residential window washing, and therefore you might be better off finding a contractor that specializes in the area that you need service.

Mississauga Is A Big Town

The other piece of advice we received is to remember that there is always another window washing company out there, if your first Mississauga window cleaning contractor does not perform the job up to par do not be afraid to thank them for their service and find someone else. Make sure you check with them to get proof of their insurance and all credentials they claim to possess. Some contractors can even go so far as to provide fake information so it is a good idea to do your due diligence and contact the insurance company and double-check that they are truly insured and covered for the type of cleaning work they will be doing on your home.

For those that are considering DIY, here’s a short video showcasing exactly why you should hire a pro.

Hire Someone Who Offers More Than Just Cleaning

A few window cleaners will do only that one service, clean your windows, but the truth is that a good company will also offer the service to do minor repairs while they are cleaning your windows. For instance, cracked caulking or failing seals are areas that a contractor can fix without too much hassle while they’re already cleaning your windows and while the cost will of course be a bit greater for this service, it will extend the life of your windows tremendously and even prevent the possibility of water damage within your home.

When looking for a high-quality window cleaning company in Mississauga it’s important that you do your best to find a contractor that is experienced, insured, and has great reviews.

Our good old friend paint, it’s been around since the caveman times and looks like it is going to stick around for years to come. I can’t see this trend changing, but lets talk about some of the reasons paint is good and paint is bad.

Benefits Of Painting Your Home

One of the clear benefits of painting your home is that you can select a huge number of colours and in a wide variety of sheens, want a matte sky blue? No problem. How about a high-sheen white for kitchen walls? That’s do-able as well. The other huge benefit of painting is that just about anyone can do it, there are no specific skills required other than the ability to move your arms and hands with some level of coordination. Paint is also very affordable when compared directly to the cost of wallpaper. So paint has that going for it. The downside of paint however is durability and it’s one area were wallpaper excels.


Wallpaper has been around for a long time, not quite as long as paint but still long enough since the Victorian era and beyond. It has adorned the walls of many elite and prestigious individuals in a wide range of fabrics showcasing a diverse set of patterns. Wallpaper is truly a thing to be admired, lets look at the benefits.

Why Choose Wallpaper For Your Home?

The most obvious reason to select wallpaper for your home is that it is beautiful. There are such a wide range of fantastic looking wallpapers to choose from to make your home look great, it is an instant accent wall maker. Another great reason to select wallpaper is that it is about as durable as you can imagine, are you sick of having broken looking paint chipping off your wall or need to have a surface that’s highly washable? You can do better than wallpaper. The only downside of wallpaper is that applying it yourself can be a serious chore and if you make a mistake it could cost you quite a lot of money to make it right.

Wallpaper versus paint is a common topic but after reading this post I’m sure you’re a little more in the know and can make an educated decision whether it’s right for your project or not. When shopping for wallpaper always talk to your local wallpaper store and explain your exact needs and requirements, be sure to mention if you have kids and/or if the wallpaper will be in an area where moisture will be present. Once you’ve made your final choice the store will likely be able to recommend a wallpaper installation professional to make your finished project look great.
