Hire a professional window cleaning service to protect your company resources and your reputation. Routine exterior cleaning maintains the look of your building but not all facility maintenance teams are alike. Unlicensed companies are in the news multiple times a month with near death safety violations. These very public rescues can cost lives, reputation and fines.
New Federal OSHA documents require building owners to provide safe walkway measures to rooftop workers. These regulation updates are prompting renewed focus on building inspections. Professional facility maintenance providers should have the experience and industry knowledge to maintain annual inspection processes, injury and illness prevention plans and safety training for window cleaners.
Ask about proof of insurance and company safety programs and know your industry customary costs when hiring a professional Window Cleaning Services provider.
Check on Insurance
Ask to see a copy of their proof of insurance and check the date of the policy and make sure confirm the provider carries at least $1,000,000 of coverage.
Cleaning windows involves working at heights on multi-story buildings and requires specific safety regulations compliance for maintaining worker safety. Commercial window cleaning companies must have specific equipment and relevant safety training to ensure safety of the window cleaners. Be sure your provider has Injury and Illness Prevention Plan and documents safety policies and procedures.
Don’t go cheap
Know the typical cost of window cleaning services in your area. Any company that offers a too-good-to-be-true price might be operating with illegal processes and not providing safe conditions to workers. This is a red flag sign that could cost lives. Protect your reputation and avoid fines by working with a professional team that operates in compliance with the law.
