As spring is arriving shortly, I am gearing up for busy season. I know that when the sun starts shining through people's windows, it will start illuminating all the dust that was previously invisible.
This is true for the windows themselves. When it is cloudy and gray outside, almost all windows look clean... but when it starts getting sunny, every speck on dust, pollen and grime instantly becomes visible
I know a lot of house cleaners state that they do not "do windows." However if you are one of these people, you may be leaving a lot of money on the table.
I know that a lot of house cleaners do not want to climb up a ladder or use a unwieldy extension pole to clean those hard-to-reach exterior windows. The good news is that you don't have to.
You can just clean the interior windows. Here's why: house cleaners charge around $20 an hour for their services, while window cleaners typically charge $30-$40 an hour. By having you clean the interior windows, and letting the pro window cleaners do the outside, you will be saving your client money. Plus they won't have to have the rough-around-the-edges window cleaners tromp through their house with possibly dirty boots.
However, you can't just clean the windows with a cloth and spray bottle. If you want to do a really good job, you need to use a squeegee.
