Regulations

Are there regulations for window cleaners? Someone mentioned that you had to have a license to clean windows for commercial and now even residential. Is this true?

I would guess that would be a local/state thing. Nothing here that I know of. We don't have any hi-rises here.

Just some guy was doing windows at a commercial 1 story and he mentioned that they had to be licensed now. I didn't know he was pulling my chain. It's not like I was take over his job cleaning windows for .50 cents each LOL.

I wouldn't take it for 50 cents a window either, but I would for what I charge.

Hi guys...noo bee here...I do hi-rise and ground floor stuff in central florida...we are rather liberal with the requirements here but peers out in california and new york have very strcik regs to deal with. Seems to be more of a concern when the area carries a lot of hi-rise stuff....whci then affects even the ground floor jockeys to some extent.
Not that any of this matters to Selma alabama (I am from Huntsville originally and seriously miss the hospitality)

i am restarting my window cleaning gig again . and being self employed with out a license can really give you problems when you need to do something based on your income like buying a car or evena house . Most morgage companies demand 2 years of verifiable income . And 2 years of invoices that you wrote by hand will not cut it . Plus if you get caught running a buisness with out a license that can spell big problems with local or state athorities . Also you need to be insured if you are trying to run a sucsesfull business . Just think your finishing your great money making account that brings in 20 a week and as your bringing the squeegee down on the last stroke it pops off and hits a guy in the eye walking out of the place and needs medical help . then the $50 license an insurance doesn't seem like a big deal now that this guy can sue the crap out of you and the resturant . And i think we all know that these people are around looking to sue for any thing and evry thing . I know its kind of far fetched but why not get licensed when its not that much money and alot of potential customers look for these things .



Well that was my first post enjoy
