Different types of glass have different properties; laminated glass, for example, has better sound proofing qualities. Commercial cleaners are familiar with different types of glass, such as annealed, toughened and laminated.

As well as being familiar with a range of different types of glass, commercial window cleaners are also aware of the different shattering effects which take place when glass is broken. This knowledge goes to help the cleaners understand how to clean vast numbers of windows without damaging the glass.

Bringing light into the workplace

The amount of daylight a building receives is called the daylight factor. This will affect how much light a person gets through to their eyes, having a substantial effect on the person’s mood. Having sparkling clean windows will reduce the amount of artificial lighting needed for indoor spaces and increase the daylight factor, consequently improving the mood of the people who use the building.
