Choosing Residential Window Cleaner
Window cleaning isn’t a service talked about as much as lawn care and home cleaning, but expertly cleaned windows can really enhance the look and feel of a home without a large expense. In this article, I’ll talk about a few simple ways to find a window cleaner you like and trust. I’ll also detail some basic requirements of window cleaning companies as well as some characteristics to look for that can differentiate good companies from the run of the mill.
The internet is the best place to search for window cleaning companies. You can simply Google window cleaners or window washing to find a nearly comprehensive list of companies in the area. As you peruse the list, take a look at pictures that the companies provide. This will give you a good sense of the companies and their window cleaning teams. Don’t be afraid to pick a company that you have a good feeling about. After all, these professional relationships can last for years and many conversations, so you should aim to find a company you would feel comfortable working with.
There are a few key requirements you should look for when browsing a window cleaning companies’ webpage. All companies should be insured, have experience with a wide range of window cleaning jobs, and be able to provide references. It is unlikely that the companies will have this specific information posted, but they will display that they can provide it upon request.
After you have done the due diligence of checking qualifications of a window cleaning company, you can begin to hone in on the characteristics that set them apart from the other companies. Window cleaning companies vary wildly in levels of organization, but the higher quality companies usually have demonstrably better uniforms, customer service, and a well put together website. Customer service begins from the initial phone call, so be wary of any rude behavior during the estimate phase. Window cleaning companies that value you as a customer will be friendly even when you are a prospective client.
Choosing a window cleaning company is not a stressful process, and can be quite easy when you keep a few things in mind. Look for a company that you like the look and feel of. Verify the basic requirements of a reputable window cleaner by scanning their website, and don’t be afraid to ask for proof. You must also find the companies that set themselves apart. The more organized the better. Good luck, and enjoy your sparkling windows.
