When you are shopping around for a window cleaning company, it is so important to have a strong criteria for evaluation. You need to consider many different factors if you want to make the best choice. Professional window cleaning services should be fast, efficient, affordable, hassle-free and should leave your windows with a stunning clean.

 

Some people make the mistake of gravitating towards the lowest price. This is a huge mistake. Clichéd to the point of being painful, you’ll have to forgive our mention of the old saying, “you get what you pay for.”

 

It simply isn’t possible to sustain a business at the rate offered by some start-up companies. So long as the business owner is not being greedy, window cleaning prices are relatively easy to understand. The cost of high-quality materials, training, and legal coverage are all reflected in the window cleaning prices that you see the service offered for, and you can gauge a company’s professionalism often by where they fall on this functionalist price scale.

 

Here we go again with the clichés… but if it seems too good to be true, it probably is. If a window cleaning company is advertising an unbelievably low price, there is a very good chance that there are some shortcuts being taken. Expect to see worn-out tools, cheap ammonia-filled chemical cleaners and rusty ladders on their unmarked service trucks driven by possibly uninsured technicians who haven’t completed a background check. Read on to learn more reasons why low-cost cleaning services may not offer you the best value in the long run.

 

Poor employee training puts you at risk.

 

One common area that a low-ball window cleaning company will cut costs on is training expenses. Everybody has cleaned a window in their life, (with mixed results) so amateur window cleaning companies send out untrained individuals to lean ladders on your home or navigate its interior. As anyone who has wielded a squeegee will tell you, there is some finesse involved to ensure a high-quality, streak-free clean... in a timely manner! Proper chemical handling is crucial if you want to avoid spills in your home. Furthermore, ladder work is a very high-stakes task to undertake without adequate training, since any error or misjudgment could mean serious injury or damage done to your home.

 

Don’t spend your money on a subpar clean! Window Genie’s 3-step cleaning process applies high-level training, high-quality cleaning products, and the best tools of the trade to keep you safe and leave you satisfied with your professional window cleaning.

 

No insurance coverage can cost you big money.

 

Some companies intentionally avoid commercial liability coverage and workman’s compensation to keep their company costs low. This is one way that amateur companies are able to offer low window cleaning prices. The aforementioned lack of high-level training makes this an even scarier proposition, making you much more likely to witness a fall or experience damage done to your property.

 

An amateur window cleaning company without insurance puts you at risk of being ruined by both sides of the legal process. First, you are more likely to be sued by a poorly trained pseudo-professional who just hurt himself, likely by his own doing. Maybe he set up his ladder on uneven ground, or is working alone on a two-man job to save the company money. Whatever the case, he is hurt, and now may pursue legal action against you for some bogus unsafe conditions claim. This happens with some fly-by-night companies, or is pursued by desperate employees whose parent company won’t help them with medical bills.

 

Secondly, if their unprofessional conduct gets your property damaged, you will not be able to get your money. Suing them may not make for a difficult case, but for what is likely a low-earning amateur company, getting your money out of them will be like trying to bleed a stone.

 

Don’t take the risk. Window Genie is fully insured. Window Genie franchises offer an affordable professional window clean using their industry-leading 3-step process. Our crews are highly-trained and staffed by upstanding citizens who have been screened, passed background checks, and will arrive in signature royal-purple GenieMobiles for easy identification. Window Genie eliminates all worry, and grants your window cleaning wishes fast.
