Dust on Dirt
Although, your skylight may be occasionally by rain fall in the outdoors, skylight maintenance does not stop there! Your skylight requires attention on the inside of your home, as well. Over time your skylight will acquire an immense amount of dust and dirt that will easily visible from sunlight and your home’s lights. This will be your first sign that it is time to get a skylight cleaning service. Accumulation of excess debris can threaten your skylight’s condition, clarity, and durability. If not maintained properly, the finish of your skylight will begin to be worn down prematurely from such elements. Skylight cleaning services should be considered at least every 3 months, in order to ensure proper care for your skylight, whether it is glass or plastic.
Tempered or Laminated Glass
As tempered or laminated glass skylights are more common, they tend to be more durable to debris, but they’re more susceptible to staining and discoloration from rain water and other contaminants such as bird droppings, tree sap, and pollutants. As a result, regular skylight cleaning services are recommended to keep the glass in top condition.
Plastic or Acrylic
Skylight maintenance is recommended more often with plastic or acrylic skylights, as they have more restrictions. These types of skylights must be cleaned with only certain products and require special care due to their material. They must be treated as delicate as a mirror, rather than a classic window.
