Your property may have difficult-to-reach windows or glass façade that needs to be cleaned on a regular basis. Cleaning such places requires the experience and expertise of a licensed window cleaner. Which requires licensing and insurance coverage. The latter is crucial because skilled cleaners are often employed to clean windows in difficult-to-reach or inaccessible areas that may be risky. When hiring the right window cleaning services in Sydney, you should keep these things in mind:
While collecting price quotes
In most cases, a licensed window cleaner will take phone calls. Expect the cleaners to ask questions about the amount, type and size of windows that requires cleaning. Moreover, the condition that they are in and their location, to understand their accessibility.
A professional cleaner will be able to provide a firm quote over the phone if the windows are standard in size, made of standard materials familiar to the cleaner, need no special cleaning, and are located in very easy-to-access areas. For more complicated work, professional cleaners typically offer price estimates over the phone and give a firm quote after the service has been delivered or after the cleaner has conducted a visual inspection of the windows. To reach the windows, the cleaner must determine whether any special equipment are needed.
How do they charge for their services?
Reputed window cleaning services in Sydney rarely charge by the amount of windows that need to be washed. They usually ask for a minimal basic service fee and then charge extra based on the size of the window, cleaning requirements (such as extreme dirt build-up, stubborn stains or hard water stains), and access. The cleaners would also charge additional amount to clean window accessories such as doors, storm windows, and other similar items.
Is there anything you should do before they arrive?
On the day of operation, you should make sure that any items that may block window cleaners’ access are removed. Some window cleaners would be willing to do this clearing, while others would not. At the same time, this task consumes the cleaner’s time, which could be better spent washing the walls. This can necessitate the homeowner cutting branches from obstructing trees/plants, moving heavy furniture, and removing curtains/blinds from windows, among other things.
Professional window cleaning services in Sydney are expected to cover property floors with a temporary covering to protect them from spills during the cleaning phase.
