Search “window cleaning” in the Yellow Pages and you’ll get four pages of Calgary window cleaning companies. With so many choices, how do you tell the difference between reputable window cleaners and the cowboys?
Start with asking these three questions before choosing a Calgary window cleaning company:
Do you have a Safety Program?
Bristol Cleaning has an extensive employee safety training program. All of our staff undergo a comprehensive safety training course and receive ongoing updates. We’ve been accident free since starting business in 2007.
Is your company licensed and insured?
Bristol cleaning has $5 million in liability insurance and are fully WCB covered to protect our employees as well as our clients. Some companies reduce their overhead by underinsuring or not carrying insurance at all. For this reason, be wary of considerably lower prices. It is completely within your rights to ask to see the Certificate of Insurance.
Do you belong to local or national trade associations?
Bristol Cleaning is a member of the International Window Cleaning Association, Alberta Construction Safety Association, as well as an accredited member of the Better Business Bureau.
Once you’re satisfied the window cleaning company is credible, don’t forget to ask about what’s included in the cost. Does the quote include inside and outside of the windows, french doors and sliding doors? Do they remove screens and clean the tracks?
With these tips in mind, you can avoid the cowboys and confidently hire a professional, reliable window cleaner.
