Unwashed windows accumulate layers of grime that can build up and block out the sun, causing light-hungry houseplants to turn to TV sets and birthday cakes. Keep the planted masses happy with today's Groupon: for $50, you get $100 worth of interior and exterior window washing from Mop-ster's. The service area includes Raleigh and Wake Forest, and customers may use up to two Groupons per visit.
Mop-ster's founders, David and Tabitha Jester-Wilson, channel 12 years of window-washing experience as they polish away dirt, dust, and grime. When licensed and insured technicians arrive, they lovingly scour each porthole inside and out with sponges, squeegees, and unicorn tears. As specialists polish regular flat-glassed windows ($5 each), multiple-paned windows ($10 each) sigh with relief and storm windows ($20 each) relish their liberation from water spots. Combination windows—such as a flat-glassed window with an exterior storm window attached—will require a combined payment ($25/window). David and Tabitha happily clean second-story windows (add $5/window), clambering to the tops of tall ladders or beanstalks to defeat window-smudging giants.
