Exterior Window Cleaning Up-selling
Permalink  
 


Is anyone using exterior window cleaning (RODI) as an add on service? I have been thinking of adding and just wanted to know any responses from experienced cleaners up-selling exterior window cleaning. The good, or the bad?

It's a no brainer in my opinion. I'd add that you should simply charge more upfront and include exterior windows in your service. Set yourself apart and make more. Win/win.

Unless housewash is done first I've had bad experience with oxidized paint from siding and even worse, frames making Windows even worse, we scrub the he'll out of frames, use WFP, DI/RO, Unger, Gardiner systems brass buff pads, etc and there will always be 1 customer a week/month b'tchin about something. Point out scratches glass before we start and still, they blame us, try taking pictures before but it's impossible to get scratch in focus.

And that's if I'm on site, if the crews out, they don't bother.

I think I'm in an area where people have nothing better to do but nitpick.

A recent very high end house the customer is suing us stating we scratched the glass everywhere. I know she complained about every other contractors and i KNOW there were scratches there before us, pointed out. I believe the prior cleaners were not insured and since we are, we were set up to take the blame as she is in the ins. business and knows they will just settle for payout.

Personally.
Not worth the headaches anymore

We just added window cleaning after sitting on the equipment for a year. I'm sure it will make a big difference.

It makes money for some.
I think for us, cost of living is too high to get competent workers. No one wants to work for less than $18-20 hr. Been thru 10 workers this summer, in NY now, even the fry boys and burger flippers are starting at $15.
Can barely make a profit when they don't mess up

Cool pic and setup, Doug!

Yeah i was thinking about that today as i was wiping some spots off a window... sparkling clean windows really set things off nice.  Might be nice as a package deal... top tier could include gutter clean out and scrub, and windows, maybe.  Or, like squegee said, just include it as part of your basic wash and charge more.

It's worth it for me! You wash a persons house once a year or every couple of years but you can come back every month or quarter and clean there windows. That doubles or triples that customers profitability.

I've done one window cleaning job and it didn't go well. Tried to clean with the WFP, but couldn't get the spider webs from the 2nd story windows. Should have washed the house instead. Would have finished faster! I think it's a good upsell along with a house wash, but I don't think I'm gonna try to clean windows as a stand-alone.

We always offer it as an upsell. It's a lot easier using a Reach-It Constructor brush for us.

It's the 1 dried water spot on 50 Windows that you get a callback that ruins it for me.

There's a quick touch up tip that can solve the rare spotting issue or those very rare runners of water that weep out later. I'll do a video tomorrow.
