What to Expect from a Commercial Window Cleaning Company

You’ve decided it’s time to stop cleaning your windows yourself and hire a commercial window cleaning company. But what are you supposed to expect from them? You’ve never ventured into this area before. How do you know if you’re getting your money’s worth, or if you’re just getting ripped off? Are you settling for the bare minimum, or should you be asking for more from your commercial window cleaning company? We at ASF Clean Team have been in the window cleaning business for over 10 years and can help you make sure you’re getting the best bang for your buck.

It’s More Than Just Windows

If you’re cleaning your own windows at home or in the office, you’re probably just cleaning the window panes. Those are, after all, what most people notice. You may do a deep clean of the window tracks, sills, and frames during spring cleaning, but other than that a quick wipe-down with a window cleaning spray and a paper towel will do. So if you’re just hiring someone to do the same job you’re doing, shouldn’t you expect the same?

Absolutely not. When it comes to commercial window cleaning companies, cleaning the window pane is the absolute bare minimum. You’re likely paying hundreds of dollars for the service, so why should a quick wipedown suffice? At ASF Clean Team, our window washing and high rise window cleaning services include cleaning the window panes, frames, tracks, and sills every single time. Sure, the window panes are the first things people notice, but that’s not the only part of your window. You should expect a completely clean window from your commercial window cleaning company every time.

Get More Done At Once

At ASF Clean Team, all of our cleaning methods come down to three things: water, professional tools, and trained professionals. If that’s all that it takes to clean, then why stop at windows?

Whether you’re cleaning a home or business, there is so much more that can be done to clean your building’s exterior than just window cleaning. Whether it’s cleaning your roof and gutters, soft washing your roof, or power washing your driveway, ASF Clean Team can do it all.

Not all window cleaning companies will offer other services, like property detailing. However, when you’re looking to hire one, that’s definitely something you can expect. You need a better way of exterior cleaning than doing it yourself. And if a company can clean your building’s exterior during the same service time as cleaning your windows, why wouldn’t you want to go for that? Even if you don’t need both services at the same time, you’ll still have one company you can call any time you need property detailing or window washing.

How Often Should You See Your Commercial Window Cleaning Company?

You see your hairstylist every 6 weeks. You see your dentist every 6 months. They keep you looking and feeling great all year. So how often should you see your commercial window cleaning company to keep your building looking great all year?

A good rule of thumb is to get your windows professionally cleaned at least twice a year. Spring and fall are great times to do this. In the spring, you’ll be cleaning off all of the ash and debris from the fall and winter. In the fall, you’ll be cleaning away all the pollen and pollution from the busy spring and summer. 

However, how often your windows are professionally cleaned is ultimately up to you. You’re paying for the service, you’re paying for your building, and you’re paying for your view. Maybe you are on a lower level of a building where you get more pollution buildup daily. Or maybe you run a business where you have people coming in and out all day, getting their fingerprints all over the windows. If that’s the case for you, you could have your windows professionally cleaned once a month. 

Expect Your Commercial Window Cleaning Company to Be Insured

Did you know that it’s not a legal requirement for commercial window cleaning companies to be insured? In a field that involves cleaning high surfaces often, an accident is bound to happen every once in a while. It doesn’t matter how highly trained the professionals are; they’re called accidents for a reason.

In this case, if there is an accident and a commercial window cleaning company doesn’t have insurance, the liability could be on you as the property owner. So, your window cleaning bill suddenly turns into a much larger, unexpected bill. That’s not fair to you.

Even though it’s not legally required for commercial window cleaning companies to carry insurance, it is still something you should look for and ask about. At ASF Clean Team, we carry insurance for every single one of our employees. So, should an accident happen while we’re working, we have it covered.

Communicating with the Cleaning Company

We’ve all dealt with that one company that you can never get ahold of. Maybe it’s an auto shop or your internet provider, but after the initial service, you can just never get ahold of them for a follow-up.

Don’t settle for less when it comes to communication with your commercial window cleaning company. At ASF Clean Team, we know how important communication is and how important it is to keep you updated about your services. You can contact us by phone or email to schedule a service or even get a quote for your next service. Once it’s the day of your appointment, we’ll text you when we’re on our way so you don’t even have to remember we’re coming. Plus, if you’re not there when we clean your property’s exterior, we’ll take before and after pictures so you can see exactly what we did.
