Winter is coming, and with it the biting temperatures that can cause damage to your property. Many home owners don’t realise the importance of winterising their home until it’s too late, and they find themselves having to pay out on hefty repair bills.
To ensure that this doesn’t happen to you, we have put together a guide on getting your home ready for winter.
Kill the draft – Everyone has experienced a cold draft sneaking under doors and setting in. Not only does it mean cold air getting in, but it also means that the warm air in the room is escaping. Think of ways you can block these drafts during winter. The most obvious and popular choice is to purchase a draft snake that sits in the gap beneath your doors, cutting off any escape for the heat.
One study has shown that a draft can waste up to 30% of energy per year!
De-clutter the gutter – The water in your gutters needs to flow freely for them to work effectively. After autumn, you can expect leaves and debris to have floated down into your gutter. Clean yours out before winter sets in to stop water blockages, and heavy icicles forming.
Switch your ceiling fans – your ceiling fans are probably saviours in hot sticky summer months. But did you know they can come in handy during winter too? Set them in a clockwise motion so that they can push the hot hair along the ceiling and towards the floor.
Switch out air filters – Your HVAC system has probably endured a heavy few summer months. All that use also means that its filters are pretty clogged up. Now’s the time to switch/clean them ensuring the system’s lifespan and efficiency.
Fill in the gaps – We already mentioned gaps under your doors, but they aren’t the only place heat can escape, and cold air break in. Your property is most likely full of little holes, holes that usually occur down the sides of windows and doors. Get yourself a tube of caulk and fill them all in. It’s a small job that makes a big difference.

When starting any new business venture, the most important factor to consider is how you’re going to win new customers and to get your business off the ground. This is consistent no matter your product or service. Window cleaning businesses require a slightly different approach to marketing, compared to other businesses. Here’s a look at five tips for generating customers for your window cleaning business.
Put on a Professional Appearance
One quality that never fails to attract customers is professionalism. This is the same not matter your business. As with most decisions, it can be the smallest factor that makes all the difference. A smartly-dressed, neat person with a smile is far more likely to have a positive impact than someone that doesn’t possess these qualities.
Once you have the right image, it’s time to consider the right message. First impressions matter, this is no more apparent than in business. Being polite and professional in your initial and subsequent meetings is paramount. This can make the difference between attracting and repelling potential customers.
One of the shrewdest ways to have your customers remember who you are is to have an elegantly-designed business card. Your business card should include all relevant contact details, be neatly designed and engaging.
When marketing your window cleaning business it’s important to place your business card in the hands of as many potential customers as possible. From neighbours to family and friends make sure that you get the word out. A good place to start is to visit local businesses and offer them your business card.
Flyer, Flyer and Flyer Again
Flyers are still an astute and effective form of marketing, this is certainly the case for window cleaners. The imagery on your flyer should draw the attention of your prospective, and existing customers and the copy should clearly outline your service and include all relevant information.
Why not target local business and strategically flyer where you believe your service will be noticed. If you’re feeling especially bold, you could always pay a personal visit, introduce yourself and place a flyer or business card directly in the business owner’s hand.
If you encounter a rebuke from a business owner, it’s important to remain personal and courteous. One of the most accepted for of marketing is word of mouth. If you don’t take the rebuke well, the business owner may respond by letting other targeted areas know of your impoliteness. This is especially important when targeting a large industrial estate with a number of potential clients.
If, on the other hand, you have an overwhelmingly positive response and a potential customer asks for a quotation, remain positive. If you have an idea of your prices and payment methods, be prompt, if not, take their details and get back to them promptly.
Have You Considered a Website?
In today’s contemporary world, we all use the internet to search for products or services. Why not employ a reputable but affordable designer to build you an engaging and optimised website? This may produce clients from a wider area, and be worth then initial investment.
Setting up a new business venture can be challenging. However, if you crack the initial marketing stages, you’re on your way to having a prosperous window cleaning business.

We might stock some of the best window cleaning equipment on the market at H & G Promotions but that doesn’t mean to say we like doing household chores. Our products make life easier for tasks around the house, but you still have to get stuck in and physically complete these chores, which can be tedious at the best of times.
Look at this from a different perspective and it might just make you feel a little better. Cleaning, gardening, washing windows and conservatories is actually good for you - remarkably, they’re a great way to burn excess calories!
Read these findings from a recent study and you’ll see what we mean.
Household Chores That Burn Calories:
Turn soil over in your garden for 30 minutes or so and you will burn up to 315 calories. Do this on a warm day and you’ll work up a sweat, which helps to remove toxins from the body. Digging is demanding, it uses the thigh and calf muscles, plus it’s good for your heart.
Painting and Decorating
Give your house a mini makeover and this is another way to improve fitness levels, or at least, have a quick, short-term workout. All that bending and stretching, climbing up and down ladders, lifting and carrying tins of paint, or rolls of paper, can burn up to 160 calories in a mere 30 minutes.
Making the Beds
Changing the sheets in the bedrooms at your property is also a good way of working out. Swap the sheets over, change duvet covers, slip new pillowcases on and within 30 minutes you can burn around 130 calories which isn’t bad, seen as you had to make the beds up anyway.
You can even burn calories by washing the windows at home. Go around the property cleaning all glazed areas and this gives your upper body a workout, especially if use a telescopic, water-fed pole. Experts estimate you can work off around 125 calories if you have a large number of windows to clean at home.
Think of how fit you are getting when you carry out household chores at home. If you need cleaning equipment, ladders, or gardening tools to help you out with the tasks, don’t hesitate to get in touch with us at H&G.

How much time to you devote to cleaning the windows around your home? Possibly you have a professional window cleaner that does this task for you, or maybe you have a conservatory cleaning kit that removes blemishes as and when they occur.
Window washing systems are really useful for removing all types of grime. They shift general dirt and remove stubborn stains like bird droppings, which can cause further problems if left untreated.
Bird droppings look horrendous on glazed areas and they cause severe damage if left too long on the paintwork of vehicles. For years the motoring public was convinced it was the limescale within the droppings that caused the damage, however new research by vehicle wax experts Autoglym proves this simply isn’t the case.
The impact of Guano on vehicle paintwork
The research team at Autoglym has been busy. They spent time analysing the effects of bird droppings on car bodywork and the results they came up with make an interesting read.
Studies show that vehicle paint lacquer softens in warm sunlight and it also expands. Normally this is fine. If a bird leaves a deposit on your car though in these types of conditions, it can start a chain of events.
When droppings land on your car’s paintwork the sun hardens them. This is fine as long as you wash the dirt off as soon as you possibly can, leave it until the lacquer starts to cool and you have genuine issues on your hands.
Cooling lacquer causes problems
When paint lacquer cools as temperatures drop it starts to contract. The lacquer starts to harden, it moulds itself around the droppings on the paintwork and afterwards, when you wash the hardened Guana off the car, it leaves a visible imprint.
For years we’ve been blaming limescale for this problem when in fact, it was a combination of factors that led to damage being caused.
There’s a simple fix!
Obviously there’s a quick fix available which prevents this chain of events from happening in the first place. Spot the problem straight away and you can rectify the situation, wash the droppings off before they harden and your paintwork will be saved.
If you require cleaning products to wash seagull mess or wild bird droppings off your property, don’t hesitate to contact us at HG Promotions.
