In most offices, there are windows, sometimes many windows. Natural light is known to be better on the eyes for work performance and is a strong influence on the mental health of those who work in and visit the office. Even when the weather outside is dull or rainy, it is calming to have the outside a part of the inside. And, when snow or bright sunshine is visible, looking out a window is a pleasant experience. (Perhaps if it is snowing and workers are concerned with traveling in the snow, the view might be upsetting rather than pleasant.) However, windows do get dirty, even when there is lots of heavy rain, to give them a rinse. This is especially true if the office building is in a busy city high-rise where traffic exhaust is continually floating upward along with dust and dirt from churning winds. Under most circumstances, office windows can be cleaned by nonprofessionals on the inside but need professional window cleaners for the outside. If you are in the process of deciding how to clean your office windows, here are some tips on what to expect from commercial window cleaning:
Make sure the commercial window cleaning company is licensed and bonded, and its employees are well trained. Unfortunately, window cleaning is a job some people will try to do without a professional presence. One way you can tell is if the cleaning company wants you to pay “under the table” as sometimes these workers are “fly by night” and if they don’t do a satisfactory job, they will take your money and leave town.
Experience counts when it comes to commercial window cleaning. While it is true that people need experience to become experienced, when it comes to window cleaning, you need at least some workers to be experienced. You can go online and check the cleaning company’s website for the company’s history, its mission statement, what method and products are used to clean windows, and read reviews from past customers as well as check the star rating. Beware if there is no website.
You will want professional window cleaners with up-to-date cleaning supplies like sturdy ladders and safety precautions for high buildings.
If the professional cleaners will be cleaning inside windows as well as outside, be sure their products disinfect as well as sanitize using cleaning products approved by the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency)
Having office and building windows cleaned regularly is an important part of running a successful business. Use these tips and take time and research several professional window cleaning companies before you decide on the one best suited to your needs and your budget.
