Running a cleaning business is hard work. From getting new clients and maintaining existing ones to managing your employees, you have a lot on your plate. We want to share with you five business tips to help your window cleaning business thrive.
We know that insurance isn’t always the most exciting thing to talk about, but having insurance is essential for all business owners, especially window cleaners. You face risks every day while on the job, and you’ll want to be prepared if accidents happen. Your ladder could slip and break one of your customer’s windows. Your customer could trip on your equipment or cords and get injured. Whatever the case, you could be held liable for any injury or damage is done to your client or their property.

Your business’ branding shapes the way your customers perceive your business. This can include anything from your business’ logo, colors, and the look and feel of the company. Branding can be fun, but make sure it is professional and consistent. Design a unique brand for your business so it sticks out from the other window cleaning businesses.
Providing uniforms for your employees is important for your business. Uniforms help your business look unified and professional. Consider having a company shirt that all your employees wear while on the job. This shirt can have your company name and logo on it, so that current and potential customers can recognize your company, creating free advertising. Having company uniforms also saves your employees money and can promote company pride.
Social Media Engagement
Advertising your window cleaning company on social media can be a huge benefit to your business. You can use Instagram to post pictures of your work and link to your website. Facebook can be used for joining window cleaner groups and creating a business page for your company. Consider using Tik Tok for before and after videos of your window cleaning work.
Whatever social media platform you choose to use, make sure that you post consistently and on-brand. Post content that is relevant and appealing to your audience. Engage with your followers—respond to their comments, answer their questions, and be a resource to them.
If you’re looking for an opportunity to communicate with your clients on a more consistent basis, consider trying email marketing. Email marketing allows you to send emails to your clients whenever you like. Perhaps you send a monthly newsletter sharing company news, monthly promotions, birthday discounts, or just a friendly reminder that it’s time for their windows to get cleaned again. You can use programs like MailChimp to get the job done. Keep in mind that your clients can opt-out at any time, and don’t send any emails that may appear to be spam.
