6 Mistakes To Avoid When Choosing Window Cleaning Company

Are your windows dirty and in need of a good cleaning to leave the sparkling and appealing? Do you want them to look as good as new, so that your house gets a new life? If the answer is yes, then you definitely need to get a good window cleaning company. Let's admit it - having dirty windows can make even the most appealing house to look dull. Most people always try to do their own window cleaning, but without the right skills and tools, they end up making a huge mess of the windows. For some, getting the time off their busy schedules to do some window cleaning can be a bit overwhelming, hence they opt for cleaning companies. The big challenge always comes when it is time to choose a cleaning company. There are very many companies that claim to do window cleaning, and you can never be too sure on who to entrust your window cleaning job with. Some of the top 6 mistakes to avoid when choosing a window cleaning company include:

Window Cleaning

1. Choosing a company that is not experienced:

Whenever you are choosing a window cleaner, always bear in mind that there are several types of windows. Each type of window has some unique cleaning needs that can only be addressed by someone who is very experienced. Therefore, do not make a mistake of hiring a cleaning company whose experience you do not know. If you identify a cleaning company, do some research to find out how experienced they are when it comes to cleaning windows. Do not feel shy to ask for referrals and testimonials from people that they have worked with. You can also tell them to show you their portfolio so that you see what they are capable of doing. Checking their portfolio will also give you an idea on the types of windows they are familiar with, and basically what they have done as a window cleaning company

2. Looking at their charges as your sole indicator of how good they are:

Do not be fooled into thinking that the amount charged for cleaning is the greatest determinant of how good a cleaning company is. Just because a company is charging a high amount to do your cleaning does not automatically make them the best in the market. It could simply be that they are an expensive company, and it has nothing to do with the quality of work that they will deliver. At the same time, a company that charges a low amount is not necessarily the best. There are some companies that give a small introductory price, and then later when you have contracted them, they start introducing new charges. So, as a rule, you should always consider the services the company is providing, and their terms of provision before you contract them. However, this does not mean that you should not look at what the company is charging. Of course, your decision to use them will be determined by how much money you have, and how much you plan to spend on window cleaning. However, do not let the price be the key factor you use to determine if you will hire the cleaner or not.

3. Going for a window cleaning company simply because they have good equipment:

Window cleaning may require some sophisticated cleaning equipment to ensure that the windows are sparkling clean by the time the cleaners are done. That is why most companies always feel the need to indicate the cleaning equipment that they have for clients to consider them. Sadly, for some companies, this is just for show. Having the right skill is more important than having the cleaning equipment. Put your focus on how well trained and experienced the staff members are. Will they be able to work with the equipment that they boast of having? Will they work with the equipment by working them effectively to prevent any damage to your windows? Those are some of the fundamental questions you should be ready to ask. Of course you should not overlook the importance of cleaning equipment when looking for a window cleaning company - just make sure that the people working with the equipment are skilled at doing it.

4. Failing to insist on a contract with the cleaning company:

One of the reasons why most people have conflict with the cleaning companies they hire is because they didn't have a comprehensive binding agreement. You cannot ignore the importance of signing a contract with any company that you intend to work with. Ask them for their terms, and how they will go about the cleaning. Always ask for a contract whenever possible so that you have something to fall back on in case you will need to seek for compensation or make a legal claim. Most professional companies always have a draft contract that stipulates the terms and conditions that they will use in their operations. They allow you to go through the contract and hire them only after you have agreed to those terms. It makes everything easier, and both of you are bound to work within the definition of the contract.

5. Forgetting to ask relevant questions:

When you are hiring a window cleaning company, do not forget to ask all the relevant questions. Don't be in such a hurry that you do nit make inquiries on relevant information such as: If they have insurance, the time that they will come to do the cleaning, how long the cleaning will last, what other services they offer apart from window cleaning, how many staff members from the company you should expect in your house, the cleaning substances they will use, and any other additional information. Asking the right questions prepares you for the cleaning process and prevents you from being disappointed.

When you seek clarification, you are also able to express your expectations and allow the cleaners to serve you better.


6. Not doing enough research on the company you have chosen:

After you have settled on a company to do your cleaning, you should embark on thorough research before you set an actual date for the cleaning to be done. Are they authentic and honest enough? Do they really exist, and have they worked with anyone before? Just because they have an impressive online profile does not mean that they are a good company. Do a comprehensive research to establish who they really are. If possible, plan a visit to their offices to have a one- on- one chat with them. Make phone calls and confirm that they will give you exactly what you are looking for, before hiring them. You should avoid hiring without doing research and checking our recommendations and reviews from other clients the company has worked with.

Generally, you should always go for a professional company that has enough skill and experiences. Window cleaning can be sensitive, so you should limit the losses you might incur by working with only the best in the market. Once you identify a good window cleaning company, you can form a good working relationship such that you do not need to keep looking for a new company every time you need your windows cleaned.
