Hiring professionals for certain tasks like window cleaning is smart. It doesn’t matter if your home has 10 windows or 30, window cleaning is a chore and the pros can get it done better, faster, and safer. When hiring a window cleaning company there are five important questions to ask.
1. What Services Do You Offer?
If you don’t know exactly what a company has to offer, then you might miss out on services that could really benefit your home and living space. Often it’s possible to find answers to this question via the company’s website. However, chatting with a representative can help provide a better understanding of the specifics of each service offered. Ask if deep-cleaning of window sills and cracks are included or if skylights can be done as well.
2. Are Your Technicians Insured?
Any time you have a team of professionals at your home to do repairs, construction, or cleaning, it’s essential to be sure that they are fully insured. If something goes wrong, and things can and do happen, insurance is important to protect you and your home.
3. How Long Have You Been in Business?
Can a new business do a great job? Absolutely. However, hiring window cleaners that are part of an established, long-standing business has its advantages. Years of experience means professionals that have seen and accomplished a wide range of unique tasks. United Window Cleaning has served the Cincinnati area since it was founded as a family business in 1919. That’s more than 100 years and four generations of quality experience serving you.
4. Can You Share Any Testimonials from Previous Customers?
You ask your friends for their opinion on the latest Hollywood blockbuster or that trendy new restaurant that just opened. Asking your window cleaning company for testimonials from previous customers is no different. A good company wants to share what their customers think with prospective new clients. Some, like United Window Cleaning, will even have testimonials or reviews posted on their website.
5. When Are You Available?
A well-respected, long-standing business earns its reputation by doing a great job, and getting it done right the first time. This can mean booking an appointment, especially during certain times of the year, is challenging. But it’s worth it. You want a company that has many satisfied customers. Ask when they’re available, and be sure to ask what happens if the weather is inclement on the day of the appointment.
You know your windows need to be cleaned at least twice a year. You also know that it’s a job that you don’t really want to do yourself. Hiring a professional window cleaning company definitely can save you hassle, time, and be safer than DIY. Never be afraid to ask any questions when hiring your window cleaners. If a company dodges your questions, they’re not the right one to trust with your home.
