5 reasons rain doesn’t clean your windows even though you think it does

Ever think “Well I was going to go wash my car but since it’s raining, I don’t have to because the rain will wash it for me.”? You’re wrong. Also, just because there is a hurricane whipping at your window and flooding your basement doesn’t mean that your windows are clean. On the contrary my friend and here are the reasons why;

5. Rain brings debris. The water from the rain may wet your windows but it’s not going to protect your windows from flying debris which as we all know is filthy. Nothing like a tree branch through a window to ruin your afternoon.

4. Rain water is not clean. Sure, it comes from the heavens but we don’t know if  God purifies his water. We don’t know for sure that he has a Brita filtering system! There could be any amount of creepy crawleys and bacteria that’s in rain water, but we do know that it does not contain Windex which HGH is a vital part of cleaning your windows.

3. Rain water streaks. It’s true. The drops dry on your windows and the tree branches flying at your window do not work as a squeegie. So  when the rain stops you are left with dried drops on your window and your house looks like it has polka dots.

2. Mother nature is not a licensed window cleaner. She has no idea what she’s doing. Would you let some moody insane cat woman clean your windows? No? Then don’t let mother nature do it either. It just makes sense.

1. Rain doesn’t clean your windows because it doesn’t. Did your mother ever tell you “Because I said so.”? Well it’s kind of the same thing, because it doesn’t.

If you really want your windows cleaned and you don’t wanna do it yourself, hire a professional. Besides, hiring someone to do a job for you has a tendency to make one feel a little richer!

Satan called, he wants his dirty windows back

So last night I was reading and I heard my phone ring. I answered it and it happened to be Satan.  He said that he had had it with all this window cleaning.

“What in the Sam hill are you talking about Satan?!” I replied.

“I work hard all night long to keep those windows dirty. Do you know what it cost me per hour to send my minions out to dirty up windows?! It costs me $3,645! Then you people just come in behind us and clean it up! Who do you think you people are?!” Satan screamed at me through the phone. If I had recognized the number I would not have picked up the phone. Here I was trying to enjoy this quiet night by myself and instead I was being yelled at by Ol’ Beezelbub. I did not have the time or patience for this little man. However, I was kind of confused so I decided to give him 5 minutes and hear what he had to say.

“I didn’t know that dirtying windows was your kind of thing. I figured you would be busy torturing sinners down there.” I said.

“That’s a different department. I didn’t even know that this was going on until Cathy from Human Resources called me to inform me that we were over budget in the dust bunny department. You people are seriously killing my account here. I can’t afford to keep making all those windows up there dirty! I would really appreciate it if you could spread the word and let people know to please stop cleaning their windows! You’re killing me here!”

“Okay Satan. I believe that people hgh growth hormone here on Earth enjoy clean windows. It lets the sun shine in, makes rooms look bigger, ups the value of their homes and offices, and just generally makes people feel better. I am not going to hinder that! That’s like taking the joy out of Christmas!” I replied defiantly.

“Listen Merry, I understand where you are coming from but couldn’t you just do me this one solid? I mean come on. The people up there don’t really know what they want! Who needs all that light shinning in their houses blinding them? Who could possibly want all that joy?! I will sell you a new soul if you just make people stop cleaning their windows!” Now he was begging. I was in need of a new soul as I had previously sold mine for a box of chocolates and a campfire mocha from Caribou, but then I realized it wasn’t worth it. The people of earth deserved clean windows! They deserved happiness derived from clean windows and higher property values!

“NO.  I cannot do it Satan. I won’t. So you keep dirtying windows and A to Z Window cleaning will continue to clean them and bring joy to the world!” I then hung up my phone. He repeatedly called me but I refused to answer.  So, the reason I shared this story with you all is because we can’t let him win. We must keep our windows clean. I find some joy in driving up his expense account and so should you. Don’t let Satan win, have your windows cleaned. I know a great company that does an excellent job too. (Hint: it’s A to Z window cleaning)

Window Cleaners Top 10 rules to pick a Window cleaner

Window cleaning ; how to find the right company.

1. Are they responsible and dependable Window cleaning company?

Most Window cleaning companies can say they’re reliable, until you speak with the owner or previous customers you have no idea. Talk is cheap. Window cleaning companies are comparatively easy to start and many just operate autonomously without any consequence for not showing up.  Ask for testimonial, talk to the owner, get the info you need.

2. What is the cost of  window cleaning service and where do they service?

Most window cleaning companies charge somewhat the same. Be wary of  window cleaning companies that charge too little or too much, as they may be a fly-by-night company you want to steer clear of. Where they service is important because the chance of them showing up on time is increased if they are familiar with your area. Trust your instincts you didn’t get where you are by ignoring them.
3. Do they have proper insurance, bonding, and licensing?

All though not all states / cities require window cleaning companies to be bonded and licensed; ALL companies need commercial liability insurance. Be sure to ask if they have at least a $1m commercial general liability insurance policy. If they have employees as well they typically need to have workman’s comp.
4. Is there any evidence of unprincipled activity?

A simple Google search may be what you need to do. Search the web for any comments or blogs regarding unethical activity. Look up their facebook page see what customers are saying. You can also ask for customers who have had work done and ask how their experience was, or check with the better business bureau for any information regarding unethical business practices.

5. Can they provide testimonials?

Most window cleaning companies gladly share testimonies. Most, if not all window cleaning companies should be able to provide testimonials. If not, either they’re a brand new company or they’re not confident in their work! If they can’t provide any be sure to get some sort of guarantee.
6. Is the work guaranteed? What if I’m not happy?

Ask if they offer any type of guarantee and what happens if I find something I don’t like when they’re done. Not talking about a rain guarantee. Some window cleaning companies just do their work, and some will do what it takes to make you happy (within reason). Most important is for the company to set proper expectations before beginning the job so you’re both on the same page. Be sure to talk about the condition of your windows to the company. Stellar service is what you want so ask what happens when something goes wrong.
7. How long have they been in free vivaxa business?

Typically, one would think the longer the company has been in business the better, HOWEVER, this isn’t always a guarantee of good service. There are a lot of companies that have been around for a while bogged down by the industry or just plain not excited anymore. Many new companies are excited to have fresh customers and provide high levels of quality and service. It’s best to do your homework and speak with an owner or manager responsible for the particular cleaning you want.
8. Who ACTUALLY does the cleaning?

There are a lot of NSP’s (national service providers) that sub out the window cleaning.  Most NSP companies are constrained by one factor price. This is important; as many company salespeople boast about the quality of the company but fail to point out the fact they’re in a time crunch and are sending their brand new employee to clean your windows. Just because the company is good doesn’t mean your work will be good! Probe and try to find out who is going to be sent to clean your windows.
9. How many people work for the window cleaning company and how many jobs do they do per year?

Some times this can be a touchy question. This should give you an indication as to how busy the company is and how much time they have to do a quality job. Larger organizations tend to have more work that may result in less time spent at your home so be sure to do your research. Bigger isn’t always better.
10. What safety precautions do they put in place?

With high rise window cleaning safety is more than just a good idea it can save a life. IWCA ANSI/IWCA I-14.1 standard requires a work safety plan be made for every building that a window cleaner is working on. Although the company may have the proper insurance you want to be sure they’re doing everything possible to avoid any mishaps. Things could include ladder safety straps, no-slip footwear, etc. When you hire a company to clean the windows on your building you want to make sure they are the cheapest, you need them to be safety conscience. With residential if they are not safe and have an accident on your property the liability can be the home owners responsibility.

 

 

11. Trust your instincts.

With a handshake you can tell, look into the eyes of the contractor. It’s not a sciences but an art and when you know you just know.  Red flags can come up with the best companies if you’re not sure ask,  if you need more information get it. You’re in the driver’s seat and trust your instincts.
