Starting a Window Cleaning Business

Starting a window cleaning service can be an exciting time in any person’s life, but it can also be a little scary. There is a lot of work that needs to be put in when opening any kind of business. The window cleaning industry is very competitive with many businesses competing for the same clients. Prices, quality, personnel and a lot more go into the factors that clients consider before hiring a window cleaning service. That is why anyone thinking about opening this type of business should do a little research, do some hands-on work and learn the market in which they plan on working in. A little background work can go a long way when it comes to a business.

Probably the first step in developing a window cleaning service is conducting some background research. This will require some hands-on experience in window cleaning working for another company if the entrepreneur has never done so. If experience isn’t a question, then it is still worth finding out about the market in which one will enter. Which companies are in direct competition? Who are the top competitors in the area you’re trying to open your business in? What are their prices and do they provide any discounts or special pricing? Although these questions may seem arbitrary, they are vitally important to a thriving window cleaning service.

This means learning about the state, city and even county in which they plan on working in. One of the most important aspects of opening a business is understanding the laws of the state and particular city where the company will conduct most of its services. Many states and cities will have this information online, while contacting the state or city government in other areas may be necessary. All paperwork needs to be collected, signed and the right contracts need to be created. No business can get off the ground without filling out all the required forms that allow them to run a business in their respective state.

Insurance is a huge aspect of any window cleaning service. Since window cleaning can oftentimes be a very dangerous occupation, insurance policies must be taken out for all employees, including those that will not be working on-site. This precaution must be adhered to in order to cover any damages to property as well as an injury to an employee. Window cleaning requires many duties that put people at risk for injury, so a good insurance policy is necessary.

For a successful window cleaning service to really take off, you need great tools and supplies. The best, top quality supplies should be purchased for employees to use on-site. The better the quality of materials being used, the better the results and the happier the client will be. Covering all of your bases guarantees a successful business.
