Choosing the best window cleaning company for your needs can be tough. With a huge variety of such service providers in New York, it’s time-consuming. Once you’ve done thorough research online and asked your friends and relatives for references, you can narrow your list down to several candidates. To get the full picture, you need to interview at least three of them.
Speaking to the window cleaner can clarify numerous issues, help you get important answers, and assist with making a final choice.
Below you’ll find the most important questions you should be asking a window cleaning company to make sure you get top-notch services for a reasonable price.
- Are you insured?
A big number of window cleaning companies don’t bother insuring their employees. Meanwhile, window washing is among the most dangerous jobs in the world. Find out about the company’s insurance and ask to see the policy (liability and worker’s compensation insurance). Make sure it’s not expired.
- Are there extra costs?
While many companies would readily give you a quote, some of them don’t include extra fees. Make sure to ask what the possible hidden costs are. Maybe you have to pay for an extra person on the team. Or perhaps the rate is higher for working in the evening hours or on weekends.
A respectable company is always straightforward about extra costs.
- What equipment do you use to clean windows?
If your apartment is located in a high-rise building, window cleaners need special equipment. Talk to the window washers about their experience with accessing heights.
Do you need to pay extra for equipment? Do they own the equipment or rent it? What cleaning agents do they use? If you are keen on using eco-friendly cleaning solutions, make sure to discuss it beforehand.
- What other services do you offer?
Window cleaning companies aren’t created equal. Some may specialize in exterior window cleaning only. If you need interior window cleaning, mirror cleaning, and fixture cleaning, make sure to ask if the company does it as well.
- How many experts are on your team?
If you have a large house, you need a big window cleaning team. Otherwise, the process may take too long for your comfort. Make sure the company’s resources can accommodate your demands.
