Everybody knows that they need the windows of their home cleaned recently… we hope they do, at least; it’s pretty important for the wellbeing of a house! Actually finding an effective and reliable window cleaning company, however, can prove to be a tricky matter indeed.
Crack open your local phone directory – or, if you’ve recognized you’re living in the 21st century, just run a Google search – and you’re likely to be overwhelmed by the sheer number of options available to you. Even in serene Surrey, we’re well aware that there’s a bustling crowd of window cleaning companies looking to work for the good residents of Knaphill, Ripley, Send and West Horsley. And, of course, every single one of them claims to be the best!
So, how do you filter out the noise and zero in on the Surrey-based residential window cleaning company that’s right for you? Well, fortunately we’ve put together a quick and easy guide to help you accomplish exactly that. Run down our list of questions, and consider how your chosen company checks out before you even think of contacting them!
Are they insured?
For us, there’s no better place to start. Your home is almost certainly your most valuable possession, after all. Accidents do happen, even to the most experienced window cleaners, and you need to know that in such a situation you wouldn’t be on the hook for the repair costs. Full public liability insurance – which we’ve been sure to take out here at Integrity Window Cleaning – should be a minimum requirement.
Are they safe?
Of course, even if the company’s insurance does cover the cost of an accident, you’d still rather not go through the palaver of carrying out repairs in the first place! A trustworthy residential window cleaning company will take every measure possible to ensure the greatest possible safety for your home. We adopted a water fed pole system, for example – a major change for our business – because it largely removed the need for ladders, making things a whole lot safer for your house.
Are they proven?
A quick and easy way to gauge this is to simply check how long a company has been in business. Window cleaners who’ve only been going a few months might have the skills… but they haven’t got the track record to inspire confidence. In our opinion, you want an outfit who have at least a decade of experience in the industry. Integrity Window Cleaning have been going for over ten years now, for instance, and we would not have made it this far if we didn’t consistently get results!
Are they friendly?!
This might sound a little silly at first, but basic friendliness is actually extremely important when it comes to window cleaners. These people are going to be coming to your precious home, after all, and of course expecting regular payments from you. It only seems fair that you should expect some decency and respect in return for this. A great way to check on this, without even speaking to a company directly, is to check out the testimonials page on their website, which will be filled up with the opinions of customers just like you!
Whether you’re based in Guildford, Woking, Godalming or Farnham, you’ve got a considerable amount of choice available to you when it comes to window cleaning. We hope that this mini-guide has made the task of selecting one of them a whole lot easier.
Eagle-eyed readers amongst you may have noticed that Integrity Window Cleaning passed each of these questions with flying colours. How about that?!
