window cleaning weather

You may have heard of the shipping forecast, well here is the window cleaning weather forecast for April 3rd 2017!  The temperature seems to be getting a little bit warmer and the sun seems to be shining more regularly than of late.  I have just had a quick look at temperatures for April and daily high temperatures should rise from 13C at the start of April to 16C at the end of April.  One one in ten days we may see temperatures above 21C and below 10C as a minimum.  So we can all look forward to it getting a bit warmer and now that the clocks have changed we are getting longer days as well.  Today (03/04/17) sun rise is at 6.45 and sunset is at 19.38.  As for window cleaning in

Shop Window Cleaning

A great sign of the quality and attention to detail of an business is shown in the commitment to having the shop windows cleaned.  This attention to detail is not overlooked by our customer Cousins (pictured above) who employ us for shop window cleaning at their stores and head office inside and out on a monthly basis.  But unlike Cousins their are may other stores that spend lots of money on advertising the store and then when customers arrive the first thing that they see are dirty windows.  This makes no sense at all considering the time and money that goes into window displays at most shops.

Why do window cleaners miss out windows?

One of the most regular reports that we hear about bad window cleaners is that they missed out windows that should be cleaned and still charged the same amount.  So why do window cleaners do this knowing that if the customer discovers what they have done then they will stop them cleaning the windows in future and they will miss out on the customer as well as causing damage to their own reputation.  So why do window cleaners miss out windows?  There are two main reasons for this. 

My New Window Cleaning Pole is Bigger and Better


When window cleaning, part of providing a great service to to get the window clean completed a quickly as possible whilst maintaining a high standard.  This means that we are always on the look out for ways to speed things up that don’t relate directly to the actual clean.  One way that we have found that we can speed up, particularly of three story buildings is to save having to change poles.  On three story window cleans we used to use a long heavy pole for the top floor.  Then we would have to pack away the long pole and get out the shorter pole.  This all takes time.  So why don’t window cleaners just use the extra long pole to clean the windows on the lower floors?  They are telescopic after all?  We the extra long poles that we use are heavy and can be a little bit clumsy on lower floors.  So what is the answer?  Just by purchasing a new short pole that is just seven feet longer we can now reach top floors on three story buildings whilst the pole is still light in weight and has the same closed size.  We still carry the extra long pole from time to time as some old buildings are higher than new buildings and of course we need the extra long pole to reach higher still.  But on the average new style house or office we can save about five minutes per visit.  This may not seem like a great amount of time but coupled with other time saving initiatives we are now much faster than we used to be.  This means less inconvenience to our customers.  So in conclusion it would seem that size really does matter!
