Window cleaning may be a business expense you feel you can do without. After all, any of your existing staff should be able to scrub a window. But, in fact, there are many reasons why this is a job you should leave to the professionals.
Firstly, cleaning a window just isn't a simple job. It's all too easy to leave smears and marks behind that you didn't notice at the time — quite apart from the old adage that the spot always seems to be on the other side. A professional service will have the necessary equipment and experience to make sure that the job is done right the first time. Your windows will be spotless, sparkling and free of marks.
Secondly, some window marks can't be removed by a layperson anyway. If you find your business has been subjected to vandalism or graffiti overnight, you will probably not be able to have any effect on it at all on your own. You will have to use a professional window cleaning service to get the graffiti removed properly.
A third consideration is the safety of your staff. This is particularly important if you have any windows above ground-floor level. Sending someone up a ladder to clean the windows could easily lead to an accident. A professional service will have the correct equipment to reach higher windows from the ground. They will also have lifting and abseiling equipment if the windows are too high to be reached from below, as well as the knowledge and experience needed to operate such equipment safely. They will have carried out the necessary risk assessments and given their staff the correct training to ensure the safety of everyone concerned.
Finally, you might consider the expense if anything does go wrong. It is too easy for a window to become damaged if it is being cleaned by someone who does not know what they are doing. There are also huge financial and human costs in the event of an accident — and glass can be a dangerous material. As well as being able to keep these accidents to a minimum, a professional service will have the necessary insurance in the event that anything does go wrong.
A commercial window cleaning service will be able to give your windows a sparkling appearance, without putting either your staff or your customers at risk.
