How-to Clean French Pane Windows

Cleaning glass at automobile dealers can present numerous challenges. It is good to have a moderate to high skill set when washing exterior glass at dealerships. Reason being is that there are many situations/tasks that a beginner/newbie window cleaner may not have the experience to tackle skillfully. This is not to say that it cannot be done by a beginner.
It is always recommended to hire an experienced window cleaner who has numerous years of experience working around parked cars, moving cars, awnings, signs, customers, displays, etc. If you are a property manager or a strata member, you know that you don’t want to have someone on the job who may not know what they’re doing and is unaware of their surroundings.
When you hire a professional who has multiple years of experience cleaning thousands and thousands of different types of windows and glass utilizing different methods, you know you can be at ease because you’ve hired a qualified professional.
Sometimes it may cost slightly more to hire a more experienced window cleaner than it might even cost hiring a larger company with a fleet of vehicles and lesser experienced workers. There is no price for peace of mind though.
