Putting preventative measures in place to stop birds from hitting clean windows is an important step for both the safety of the birds and the cleanliness of your windows. At Prudential Window Cleaning, our 120+ years of experience in the window cleaning industry has enabled us to possess an extensive amount of knowledge on window cleaning. Here are a few methods we suggest you use to minimise the risk of birds hitting your windows:
Window Screens or Netting: Installing screens or netting on the outside of your windows can help place a barrier in between the reflective surface, helping to reduce the likelihood of collisions.
Reflective Objects: A simple trick such as hanging reflective objects such as wind chimes near the window can help deter birds.
Window Film: Reflections and glare can be reduced by applying window film, helping to minimise the likelihood of collisions by making the glass more viable.
External Shades: To reduce transparency and minimise reflections, external shades are a great option.
UV Reflective Decals: Window decals with UV reflective properties are indivisible to humans but visible to birds, making them an effective option for preventing collisions.
Putting a mixture of these strategies into place can help alleviate this unfortunate issue. If your windows have been affected by the outcome of birds hitting against them, you can count on Prudential Window Cleaning to bring them back to their clear, streak-free state.
