Ouch! Jill cried out as she turned abruptly to the cause of her pain, only to discover a bug running back to the accretion of filth where it had been hiding. The bug had bitten her on her left arm as she leaned by the window to peep into the meadows. As she applied ointment to the bite, she resolved vengefully, to clear that filth by the window.
We don’t have to be bitten by a bug-like ‘Jill’ before we rid our windows of any forms of filth. Filth and dirt are mostly from micro-organisms and organic materials and are very unpleasant in our homes, offices, and surroundings.
Below are the reasons why it is crucial to clean of filth and grimes from screens in your window.
The window screen serves as a passageway for sunlight into the building. This also allows you to observe your external surroundings from inside your house. With a filthy screen, you have low visibility and poor lightning of your interior. But a clean window screen improves visibility and natural lighting.
Improves the air quality coming into your space
Most times, microorganisms settle on the screen of your windows. Once air/breeze flows into the interior of the building, it carries along with it these pathogens, which can cause disease and other forms of infection, and contamination to surfaces.
A clean window allows the flow and circulation of uncontaminated air in the interior of the building.
Removal of breeding place for other organisms
Some organisms are found in filthy spots, and they grow and reproduce in filth. Most of these organisms are inimical to human health and cause serious allergies complications. These organisms can include some harmful fungi, algae, or bacteria. These microorganisms also attract other higher organisms like insects and other pests that can wreak havoc to the homes.
Inexpensive maintenance method
Filth or grime can clog the rollers of a window, causing it to hook or cause difficulty in the motion of the window. It is important to effectively clean the window, to remove all forms of filth from the edges of the window and the screen.
Also, filth on the screen can cause corroding of metallic parts of the window, due to the high level of oxidation from organisms’ interaction around the window and on the screen
Improves the aesthetics of the building
A filthy and grimy window is always repugnant to onlookers or visitors. It also gives a notion of poor hygiene within the building. A clean window is seen as a pointer for good hygiene in a building and is idyllic to the eye.
Improves the natural heating of your building
Grime and filth also block the heat that comes from the sun by radiation. The presence of this mixture in the screen ensures the reflection of the ultraviolet rays (UV) from the sun and deprives the building of the natural warmth provided by the sun.
In conclusion, filth and dirt multiply in an area at an exponential rate, and they can migrate easily due to their tiny nature. So, it is also very important to regularly and promptly rid the window and screen of filth.
