The Window Cleaning Process: with Perry Condon of Vermont Window Cleaning Company

By Perry Condon

Tell us a little bit about your company and its foundation.

Well, I was looking for a business to run that did not require substantial overhead and would get me out from behind a desk. I had tried to purchase a window cleaning business, but we were not able to close the deal. So, I traveled to a window cleaning conference to speak to other business owners about the business and ultimately decided to do a startup in 2010.

What are some important questions to ask the window cleaner before beginning the process?

It is a service business, so people should be clear about what they want and ask what the service(s) the window cleaner provides to make sure there is not a misunderstanding. People should inquiry about anything they need to do in preparation, such as moving things away from windows, as well as how long the job will take.

What kinds of windows will you service?

We service virtually all types of windows, as long as we can reach them.

If you could, please list the steps of the window cleaning process:

Every window cleaner has their own way of doing things and not all window cleaners do the same thing. However, most are concerned with efficiency and will assess each project before they begin to determine how they will get it completed timely.

How do you suggest clients prepare for a this process?

Just ask what they need to do, move valuables out of harm's way and the window cleaner will do the rest.

What are some common issues you face when it comes to cleaning windows?

Well, safety is number one. I do not want anyone getting injured trying to clean a window. Another common occurrence is the condition of the window. If it has issues we do not want to make them worse, or create any issues as a result of it being in poor repair. Lastly is mineral deposits that stain windows. They come from sources such as rain, lawn sprinklers, and water softeners. They longer they are on the glass the harder it is to remove them. I see them quite often, particularly on the side of the house that gets the most weather.

What's the best way for people to get in contact with you?

By phone, or email. Summer is our busy season. Very often we start early and finish late. So, sadly I am not able to respond as quickly as I do during other seasons of the year.
