Use the tips in this blog to separate the wheat from the chaff in your search for a reputable commercial window cleaning company.
Choosing a window cleaning company can feel a bit like a stab in the dark if you don’t know what to look for. Luckily, there are plenty of signs that indicate whether a company is professional or not, especially when you take your search online.
Here are our top seven tips for identifying a reputable commercial window cleaning company:
Do they have a professional website?
They say a company’s website is like their online storefront, so a professional business will take the care to offer something that is attractive, functional and informative. A great company website can be a good indication of a more established and successful business.
Are they members of any regulating boards or industry organisations?
If a business is a member of an industry organisation or regulations board then they will usually display the logos clearly on their website. A couple of examples for the window cleaning industry are the National Federation of Window Cleaners, SAFEContractors and The British Window Cleaning Academy.
What qualifications or training do staff have?
A reputable company invests in its employees. Check out what training and qualifications staff at the business have. The types of training available to window cleaners, including NVQs, City and Guilds qualifications, first aid training and IPAF training.
Do they have testimonials/reviews?
The internet now allows customers to review and recommend businesses across a variety of platforms. The business may display customer testimonials on their own website – which is great, but it’s also a good idea to check out any reviews of the business on third party websites like Facebook, their Google business page, their Yelp listing and any other review sites like TrustPilot.
Have they won any awards?
Every industry has awards, and although having won an award is not an essential prerequisite of a good company – if they have done so it’s an excellent indication that they’re professional and good at what they do!
Do they offer a free quote?
When looking for a business to provide you with a service you want peace of mind that they will be transparent with costs. A good commercial window cleaning company will be happy to offer a free quote and detailed information on what work would be carried out for this price.
How long have they been in business?
Although some new businesses can still provide an excellent service, if you’re looking for peace of mind then an established business is the way to go. Well established businesses have had the time to perfect the service that they offer and are usually still around all these years later because they’re offering a service that their customers love!
