Who has the time to clean their windows really? There are so many other things that you could do on a beautiful Saturday afternoon rather then spending hours cleaning your windows. You could take your dog for a walk, catch an interesting TV show, watch a movie with your friends or go shopping. Window washing surely isn’t the most glamorous way to spend your summer afternoon. Moreover, not everybody has the skills to clean their windows like a pro. That’s why you should hire one.
Traditional window cleaning using rags and sprays may leave streaks on your windows. This is because glass is made of microscopic pores and cracks invisible to the naked eye. When you use rags to clean your window, the rag becomes wetter and wetter as you go on and leaves different amounts of chemicals and moisture all over the glass. This will result in an uneven reflection in direct sunlight which gives that streaky effect we all dread.
Starting a window cleaning business is not as difficult as it looks. Sure, you’ll need to have some basic business sense and the funds necessary to buy your first pieces of equipment, but starting it is rather simple when you know what you’re doing.
One great thing about starting a window cleaning business is that it’s a low risk investment. You can start your own window cleaning business for under 200$. All you need to start are a few pieces of equipment such as a window brush and a squeegee of course, pails, a good ladder, heavy duty towels, a telescopic brush handle, good soap and a chamois.
It’s very important to go with a distinctive and descriptive name for your business. You want people to know what you’re about just by looking at your name. You also have to make sure that you treat your first customers with utmost respect. Return their calls as soon as possible and act as professionally as you can so they’ll hopefully refer you to other prospective customers.
