Having your windows clean from time to time is a recommended service for many reasons. Not only it’s important from a health and hygiene perspective but also allows more natural light to get into a room, contributing to the overall well-being of your family and employees.
However, cleaning windows can be a daunting and time-consuming task due to many factors. Safety is one of them, especially considering high buildings. And without the right products and techniques, it can be quite hard to get rid of window stains, such as hard water stains.
When you hire a professional company, cleaning professionals have the knowledge and experience necessary to clean windows safely and with satisfactory results. If you’re convinced that you need this service but are not sure how to choose the right company, you are in the right place. Let’s take a closer look at important factors when hiring professional window cleaning services:
1) Always consider the safety factor
You would expect that a professional company have trained their employees, but it’s always a good idea to double-check. Ask if the cleaning professionals have completed the appropriate safety training for cleaning windows even before you start discussing the price for the job. It’s not worth the risk otherwise.
2) Check if they are insured
Again, cleaning windows can be a high-risk job. You want to be sure the company is insured and responsible for the safety of its employees. Insurance is also important in case they break or damage anything in your property during the cleaning. Accidents can happen and you don’t want to be left with a high bill as well as the cost of the cleaning service.
3) Pay attention to their equipment and products
You probably don’t know what the best tools for the job are, but a good window cleaning company should feel comfortable about explaining in detail the equipment and products they use. You should also check the condition of the tools that will be used as this will give you an indication of the final result. Do they seem new or old and worn? Make sure you are comfortable with their selection of products, especially in case of allergies or pets. It’s also a good idea to ask if they will be supplying all the equipment or if you need to supply your own.
4) Do they offer a guarantee?
To avoid unpleasant surprises once the job is completed, don’t be afraid to ask beforehand what happens if you don’t like the result. If they don’t know how to answer or answer in a way that doesn’t seem very assuring, continue your search for another company. It’s best to spend more time in the research than time and money on a poor choice of company.
5) Ask about their experience
Every client has different needs and there is nothing wrong with asking if the potential service provider has experience in delivering what you expect. High skilled and experienced professionals will, undoubtedly, provide a better result. As well as their experience, you might want to research their reputation, just to be sure. And don’t forget that friends and family are always a good source when looking for outsourced services, so be sure to ask for recommendations.
