Be ready for the spring rains coming to North Texas! Did you know that not having your gutters maintained regularly can lead to foundation, cosmetic, soffit and landscape damage? For those very reasons it is best to hire a company once or twice a year to professionally clean them out.
Here are a few reasons why:
A blockage can cause water to pour over the sides of the gutter and pool around the foundation. Over time, the water can cause cracks to form and damage the foundation, potentially resulting in collapse.
The fascia boards that hold the gutter system are often made of wood. When gutters clog and fill with water, the boards start to deteriorate and rot. If a home has wood siding, clogged gutters can also cause water to overflow out of the gutter system and down the sides of the home.
When gutters clog and water spills over the side, it often lands on flower beds, small trees or shrubs that surround the base of a home.
If you think your house may have gutter issues give us a call and we would be happy to offer a simple and easy solution to prevent big dollar damage to your home! Call us at 214-528-5004.
LED Christmas lights use light-emitting diodes, rather than filament to produce light. This new technology makes LED lights more efficient, durable and longer-lasting than fluorescent incandescent lights. They don’t burn out, like other bulbs; and they also don’t get hot to the touch, so they’re a lot safer, too.
Saves Energy and Money
Incandescent bulbs waste a good deal of energy; a full 90 percent of their energy is released as heat, which is why regular light bulbs get so hot. LEDs are a different story. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, they use up to 75% less energy, and last 25 times as long.
They also don’t require a lot of maintenance. Since LED bulbs don’t burn out — just get dimmer over time — you don’t have to fuss with replacing bulbs and fuses. Just plug them in, and they’ll light up reliably year after year.
LED Lights are SAFER to use
Since LED Christmas lights don’t get hot to the touch, they’re safe to use around your Christmas tree, wreaths and garlands. Every year damage to homes occur from incorrectly installed lights. Damage can include fire, or damage to your home electrical wiring!
LED Lights come in MANY different styles
LED Christmas lights come in a wide variety of styles, sizes, and colors, so there’s truly something for everyone. You can even find snowflake-shaped lights, rope lights, and net lights.
LED lights continue to improve; first generation LED Christmas lights weren’t able to match the pure white light of incandescent Christmas lights. The light was much bluer, and understandably, that was a big turn off for a lot of people. However, LED Christmas lights are now available in both options. Choose cool white bulbs, if you prefer the blue tone or warm white bulbs, if you prefer more of a golden tone.
What are the drawbacks to LED Lights
LED lights typically have a higher initial cost when purchasing them compared to traditional bulbs. However, that cost IS offset over time with lower energy bills and the fact they don’t need to be replaced as often. Many times competitors will use non commercial incandecent bulbs to try and save themselves money or be able to give a “Low Bid”. When it comes to lights (much like anything) a customer will get what they pay for. For our clients, we sell the best because we ARE the best!

Top 5 Reasons you should always hire a professional window cleaning company!
Residential window cleaning does not really need its praises sung any further. It is obvious to most people that a professional window cleaning really boosts the aesthetic of the home, which can be crucial when you’re trying to increase your curb appeal to encourage a sale, or simply to wow your guests. However, did you know that booking a residential window cleaning with Bam Window Cleaning can keep your home and family safe? It may seem like a stretch, but it’s the truth! These surprising benefits are exponentially greater when you book a routine cleaning program.
1. Bam Window Cleaning offers unparalleled residential window cleaning services included in ONE price.
The Bam team has worked hard for over 14 years to establish a brand name associated with trust, customer satisfaction, and brilliantly-clean windows. Our cleanings always include your windows, tracks, sills, AND Screens. Most of the industry will only do this for an “additional fee”.
2. Bam Window Cleaning helps you spot general problems around the house.
Bam window cleaning workers have eyes that have been seasoned by thousands of hours on the job, and educated by industry-leading training. Having a professional set of eyes combing your property around the windows can help you notice any problem areas before they become more serious. If you have poorly-fitted screens, broken seals, sashes that are painted shut, rotting sills, or damaged and dysfunctional windows, our professional residential window cleaning service will identify the problems so that a solution can be found fast.
3. Residential window cleanings keep the bugs at bay
Bees and hornets typically erect their nests behind window shutters, while wasps love moving into storm windows. Ladybugs also like to settle into window channels, making windows tough to operate. A professional cleaning helps spot and dispose of any of these problem areas so that your family is kept safe from bug bites, and from malfunctioning windows that could prevent emergency escapes.
4. Residential window cleaning extends the life of your windows.
Simply put, cleaning your windows helps them last longer. Removing corrosive contaminants has obvious positive implications for the lifespan of your windows. Old aluminum screens will also gradually deteriorate over time, etching deposit patterns onto your windows in the way that lime deposits in your shower. These are not only unsightly, but deposits also make your windows more prone to cracks and chips in the future. A residential window clean protects them from this danger.
5. Window cleaning is tough and can be DANGEROUS!
Perhaps most importantly, window cleaning is a tough chore and many times dangerous job! It is usually procrastinated as much as possible, since nobody wants to spend a day lugging a ladder around the perimeter of the home with a squeegee and mop bucket in tow. Worst of all, at the end of your long and labor-intensive day, you might end up staring up at windows stripped with ugly streaks. Squeegeeing requires more skill than you might think, and learning a new skill isn’t easy when you are already tiring yourself out moving your ladder and supplies into position.
