Are you considering selling your home? You're in luck, as spring weather typically warms up the real estate market. However, if you're planning on riding this wave of buyer interest with any success, you need to realize that you are not the only strategic seller out there.

When you are shopping around for a window cleaning company, it is so important to have a strong criteria for evaluation. You need to consider many different factors if you want to make the best choice. Professional window cleaning services should be fast, efficient, affordable, hassle-free and should leave your windows with a stunning clean.
Some people make the mistake of gravitating towards the lowest price. This is a huge mistake. Clichéd to the point of being painful, you’ll have to forgive our mention of the old saying, “you get what you pay for.”
It simply isn’t possible to sustain a business at the rate offered by some start-up companies. So long as the business owner is not being greedy, window cleaning prices are relatively easy to understand. The cost of high-quality materials, training, and legal coverage are all reflected in the window cleaning prices that you see the service offered for, and you can gauge a company’s professionalism often by where they fall on this functionalist price scale.
Here we go again with the clichés… but if it seems too good to be true, it probably is. If a window cleaning company is advertising an unbelievably low price, there is a very good chance that there are some shortcuts being taken. Expect to see worn-out tools, cheap ammonia-filled chemical cleaners and rusty ladders on their unmarked service trucks driven by possibly uninsured technicians who haven’t completed a background check. Read on to learn more reasons why low-cost cleaning services may not offer you the best value in the long run.
Poor employee training puts you at risk.
One common area that a low-ball window cleaning company will cut costs on is training expenses. Everybody has cleaned a window in their life, (with mixed results) so amateur window cleaning companies send out untrained individuals to lean ladders on your home or navigate its interior. As anyone who has wielded a squeegee will tell you, there is some finesse involved to ensure a high-quality, streak-free clean... in a timely manner! Proper chemical handling is crucial if you want to avoid spills in your home. Furthermore, ladder work is a very high-stakes task to undertake without adequate training, since any error or misjudgment could mean serious injury or damage done to your home.
Don’t spend your money on a subpar clean! Window Genie’s 3-step cleaning process applies high-level training, high-quality cleaning products, and the best tools of the trade to keep you safe and leave you satisfied with your professional window cleaning.
No insurance coverage can cost you big money.
Some companies intentionally avoid commercial liability coverage and workman’s compensation to keep their company costs low. This is one way that amateur companies are able to offer low window cleaning prices. The aforementioned lack of high-level training makes this an even scarier proposition, making you much more likely to witness a fall or experience damage done to your property.
An amateur window cleaning company without insurance puts you at risk of being ruined by both sides of the legal process. First, you are more likely to be sued by a poorly trained pseudo-professional who just hurt himself, likely by his own doing. Maybe he set up his ladder on uneven ground, or is working alone on a two-man job to save the company money. Whatever the case, he is hurt, and now may pursue legal action against you for some bogus unsafe conditions claim. This happens with some fly-by-night companies, or is pursued by desperate employees whose parent company won’t help them with medical bills.
Secondly, if their unprofessional conduct gets your property damaged, you will not be able to get your money. Suing them may not make for a difficult case, but for what is likely a low-earning amateur company, getting your money out of them will be like trying to bleed a stone.
Don’t take the risk. Window Genie is fully insured. Window Genie franchises offer an affordable professional window clean using their industry-leading 3-step process. Our crews are highly-trained and staffed by upstanding citizens who have been screened, passed background checks, and will arrive in signature royal-purple GenieMobiles for easy identification. Window Genie eliminates all worry, and grants your window cleaning wishes fast.
It is rare to find a homeowner who consistently makes the time to clean their windows themselves. Hazardous, hard to do and quite a headache when tackled on your own, most homeowners instead opt to make a small and worthwhile investment in professional window cleaning services. Though they may have to deal with a fee up front, the amount of time, energy and cleaning supply cost that is saved typically makes the charge well worth it.
Because of people's general disinterest in braving the heights and hassles of doing it themselves, professional window cleaning services have become very popular. Everywhere you look, it seems that you can spot a new company offering window cleaning services. Since there is no specialized degree or expensive equipment required, many inexperienced entrepreneurs will venture into the window cleaning business, able to easily train and outfit a workforce to start recruiting clients. For this reason, there are many considerable differences in quality that will be seen in the professional window cleaning industry. Invisible to many, a definitive pecking-order exists in the window cleaning industry, with the established experts being distinguishable from inexperienced newcomers with a well-trained eye. Window Genie experts have assembled some useful tips to help you when looking for quality window cleaning service providers. Read on to learn what to look for when considering your professional window cleaning services.
Make sure that the company is insured and equipped with liability insurance.
While researching professional window cleaning companies you should always make sure that they are properly insured, registered and caught up on the proper documentation. Some unprofessional companies could put you at risk of being sued as liable if they happen to fall and have any accidents while working on your home.

For over two decades, Window Genie professional window cleaners have been delivering high-quality results without incident to homeowners across America.

With professional window cleaning having been in demand for so long, there is really little reason to opt for a brand new company that has yet to be tested by customer reviews and industry ups and downs.

This indicates that this company will be able to deliver great results capable of keeping their business afloat despite the presence of competitors.

For many different reasons, most home owners do not bother cleaning their windows. There is never a shortage of chores when it comes to home maintenance, and window cleaning is often set aside for more pressing issues such as water leakage, if not simply lost in the shuffle of routine seasonal work like raking, shoveling, and gutter-cleaning. Many home owners feel overwhelmed by the endless to-do lists, and feel that there is simply not enough time to deal with cosmetic concerns and curb-appeal.
Some home owners are intimidated by window cleaning chores. This is an understandable concern. Most window cleaning jobs have some element of danger and risk-taking attached to them. Consider how many of your windows are located in relatively inaccessible spots, requiring you to brave heights, angles and stretches you may not be comfortable with as you reach for windows hanging multiples stories high.
Worst of all, some home owners avoid window cleaning simply because they assume it is too expensive. This is not the case. Window Genie experts are especially high-valued due to their customer loyalty discounts, 3-step cleaning processs, and Streak Free Guarantee. For those who are considering having a window clean to improve curb appeal, natural light penetration, and interior view, Window Genie experts have compiled a list of considerations to help you when seeking a window cleaning quote. Read on to learn about factors that affect window cleaning prices, and to learn how Window Genie provides their patrons will the best possible value.
How many windows would you like cleaned?
This question is more complex than it sounds, giving the customer a considerable amount of control and customization options. First, you must decide whether you would like your exterior, interior, or both cleaned. Opting for both effectively doubles the amount of window surface, and your price will be adjusted as a result. This option provides the best clean, but may not be for those on a strict budget. Window Genie experts are trained to navigate home interiors with the utmost care and are guaranteed to leave furnishing, floors and fixtures in the exact same condition that they were found in. Furthermore, Window Genie uses home-safe cleaning products that are alcohol and ammonia-free to ensure that your fabrics and floors are not subjected to any accidental spillage damage.
Also, what is the total number of windows in your home? Are they single or double windows, and do they have tansoms at the tops? Are they storm windows? Obviously, more cleaning effort and equipment will influence the final price of your window cleaning quote. To learn exactly how Window Genie experts count windows in the home, click here. If you’re still unclear, your local Window Genie representative will be happy to answer any questions you have over the phone.
How often would you like your windows cleaned?
Window cleaning prices are affected by the frequency of the service. Most customers opt for the quarterly cleaning plan to keep their window panes pristine, but if you are on a budget, bi-annual cleaning plans are also accommodated.
