Choosing a Window
When it comes to selecting a window cleaning company, there are a few key factors to consider to ensure that you are getting the best service possible. In this blog post, we will discuss some of the most important things to look for when choosing a window cleaning company.
First and foremost, it is important to make sure that the company you are considering is fully licensed and insured. This will protect you from any liability in the event that an accident occurs on your property. A reputable company should be able to provide proof of insurance upon request. This may not seem to be a huge deal, but should something happen, a ladder fall and bodily injury could easily exceed a million dollars in medical treatment.
Next, you will want to look for a company that has a solid reputation in the community. This can be determined by checking online reviews, asking for recommendations from friends or family, or contacting the Better Business Bureau to see if there have been any complaints filed against the company. A high rating with a high quantity of reviews is the best. A high rating doesn’t mean as much if there are only a handful of reviews.
Another important factor to consider is the experience of the company. A company that has been in business for a number of years is likely to have a good understanding of the industry and the best practices for cleaning windows. Additionally, an experienced company will likely have the necessary equipment and tools to get the job done right. They will be efficient and able to provide the best value meaning a better service for the price.
When it comes to the actual cleaning process, it is important to look for a company that uses environmentally friendly products and practices. Not only are these products better for the environment, but they are also safer for you and your family. Additionally, make sure that the company uses the appropriate techniques for your type of windows, whether that be traditional window cleaning with scrubbers, wands, and squeegees or water-fed pole cleaning using purified water to clean the windows.
Consider the image of the company. A company with nice and clean vehicles, crisp uniforms, and a neat and tidy office or showroom provides a different vibe than a company with a magnet decal on the side of an old, dirty truck from a company without an office. What does the company’s website look like? Is the office responsive to calls and emails with a dedicated office manager? These “behind the scenes” items will play a huge role in the overall depth and quality of the window cleaning service.
In terms of pricing, it is important to find a company that offers competitive rates without compromising on quality of service. Some companies may offer a lower rate but use subpar equipment or techniques. It is important to find a balance between cost and quality. Check for options, often companies will charge significantly more for a one time window cleaning service that if you were to enter into a contract for regular window cleaning. They may offer other incentives as well so communicate and ask questions.
Consider the employees of the company. These are the individuals that will be at and inside of your home. Are they drug tested and background checked? Do they have well maintained uniforms, good hygiene and a neat and tidy appearance? This may be the single biggest aspect of the whole service.
Finally, be sure to ask about the company’s schedule and availability. If you need your windows cleaned on a regular basis, make sure that the company can accommodate your schedule. Additionally, if you need your windows cleaned at a specific time, such as before an event or party, be sure to ask if the company can accommodate your needs. The more time you give before needing the service the better the chance you will have at getting on the schedule. A day or two is usually not enough time as window cleaning companies have their days scheduled at least a week or two into the future.
By considering these factors, you can be sure that you are selecting a reputable and professional window cleaning company that will provide you with the highest quality service possible. Remember to always check references, ask for insurance and licenses, and make sure that the company uses environmentally friendly products. Find the company that has the best employees, which is generally manifest by company culture. Additionally, find a company that is flexible and can work on your schedule to make your window cleaning process as smooth and stress-free as possible.
