Have you ever been out and noticed a dirty storefront and felt compelled to go spend money? I doubt it. We are in slower economic times, it has even been dubbed “The Great Recession”, and people are hanging on to what little money they have more than ever. So whatever you can do to improve your curbside appeal to attract new customers is a plus. Who doesn’t want more customers?
Managing a business is not easy and there is definitely trade-offs that occur. Small cost-avoidance decisions could actually be bigger profit-avoidance ones. Deciding to let housekeeping tasks slide will be noticed by existing customers and repel new ones, and in the end the money saved is a lot less than the money lost in sales.

Get in a routine:
Having a daily routine for you or your employees could be very helpful. Policing for litter and washing the door glass on a daily basis (or more often) can make a big difference. It takes less than 5 minutes and you might be able to talk to a potential customer while your doing it and pull them into your store. It’s about sales right? Be where your customers are and guide them where you would like them to be.

So what are the basic steps of Professional Window Cleaning?
Screen Cleaning: Screens need to be cleaned, removing all the crud that has accumulated over time. We remove all of the dust, dirt, pollen, birdy turdy and other contaminants from your screens. Dirty screens make dirty windows, this is an important step.
Clean ledges & edges: The surface area around the window is cleaned, this helps to keep the windows cleaner longer and just looks better.
Track cleaning: This is the area of the window that is exposed when the window is open. This is an optional step, but if you open your windows it is a good idea to have clean tracks. It is amazing how much accumulates in these spaces.
Clean Windows: Windows get dirty from many different sources: dirt, pollution, bugs, hard water, kids, animals, pets, etc., and all of this needs to be removed. A clean window is free of all particulate, is shiny and will stay cleaner longer!
The bottom line is that cleaning the window is only a part of having clean windows. Windows that are professionally cleaned stay cleaner longer and are much easier to spot clean between cleanings.
