Everyone loves sparkling clean windows. But cleaning filthy windows is time consuming. It can also be hard work, depending on the size, number and position of your windows. It also eats up precious time, taking you away from doing what you enjoy.
If you’ve ever faced a big window cleaning job, you’ll know the value of having a professional with the right equipment and supplies handle the work for you. Super clean windows also improve how a property looks. They also allow more sunlight to enter and reduce dust, mould and dirt.
In this article, we’ll outline the qualities to consider when choosing a window cleaning service, and share where to find the best in Canberra.
What makes a great window cleaning service?
Choosing the right window cleaning service can take the hassle out of what can be a mighty big job. The end result—gleaming windows—will make your property look amazing and make it cleaner and healthier.
It can be helpful to keep the following in mind when choosing a window cleaning service.
- Experience. Find out how long the window cleaning service has been in business. Check if the cleaners are full-time professionals or part-time people who aren’t trained but cleaning windows to make some cash.
- Insured. Ask if the window cleaner is properly insured. This is especially important if something gets damaged or someone gets hurt while on your property.
- Professional. Window cleaners are perfectionists. Attention to detail is very important. Make sure they leave your windows sparkling clear and, if not, they have informed you of what else needs to be done.
- Price. Ask for a detailed quote and check around with other window cleaning services to make sure you’re paying a fair price for the window cleaning service. Bear in mind, however, that the amount you’ll pay depends on factors like the number of windows, how high they are and how dirty they are.
- Reliable. Check online for reviews to make sure the window cleaner you choose is reliable. This includes showing up on time, working efficiently and treating your property professionally.
