I am planning on raising a sunken family room about 4 inches, and read previous posts about how to do this. One problem I have is how to deal with the sliding patio door, which will need to be raised to accommodate the new floor height. I imagine I will need to remove the door and cut out a bit off the top of the hole to accommodate the new raised position. Do I need to do this first, so I’ll be able to close up the house while I’m building up the floor? Does anyone have any suggestions?

You also have a header above the door that is load bearing – which has to be addressed as well. Some people put a step about 3’ inside the door and leave the door as it is.

If the header can not be modified and you don’t wish to leave a step, you might consider replacement of the sliding door with a double door. Many standards can be easily cut to fit lower head room. Cheaper than a custom made slider.

Bold1 has a good idea but are you ok to forgot the sliding door ?
Double door could take too much spaces

When it comes to getting professional window cleaning in Maylands WA,  you need a window cleaner with experience.

What benefits does experience bring? Say, for instance you have tinted home windows. Would your residential window cleaner know how to  clean the windows without scratching the tint?

In addition to experience, you need a window washer that is comitted to excellence. It can be tempting to hire the cheapest quote. However, would that window cleaner ensure that you receive the highest of standards? Perhaps not.
