Atlanta Window Cleaning
Professional window cleaners have the experience and tools—such as
ladders, plenty of towels, and multiple sizes of squeegees—to do the
job correctly and efficiently. Hand washing and water-fed pole washing
are the two major techniques for window cleaning.
Hand washing. Hand washing is as it sounds; a technician climbs a ladder to each individual window, hand-scrubs it, and then squeegees it.
Water-fed pole washing. Water-fed
pole washing involves spraying, scrubbing, and rinsing the window from
the ground below, using a hose and a brush on a long extension pole.
This method also uses a water purification system, which limits spots
on the windows. While hand washing is better because the technician can
more easily see what he or she is doing, extra time is spent climbing
and moving ladders. Water-fed pole washing is useful in situations
where hand washing is not practical.
Many companies quote window cleaning over the phone. The price is
usually quoted as a per window price. Then, when the technician arrives
and evaluates the job in person, he or she adjusts the price
accordingly. If you compare prices given over the phone, make sure you
are comparing apples to apples. Some quotes may reflect a less thorough
approach and/or less work, while others reflect a more thorough
cleaning. Selecting a company on price alone, without comparing the
service delivered, is an easy way to overpay.
Once the technician arrives and quotes a firm price, that price
should not change unless you change the scope of the work. If you need
to change the scope of the work after the job has begun, be sure to get
a firm estimate of what the additional work will cost. Some companies
may try to lowball you in the beginning and then charge for lots of
little things, which you might have assumed were included in the
