Window Cleaning

Shimmer explains what it takes to become a professional window cleaner

Many people think that window cleaning can be performed easily by anybody and is an unskilled job like cleaning. In fact, this isn’t true. Window cleaning is a very highly skilled career that is developed over time through rigorous training and practice.

Many people think that just because they clean their own windows that they can work in a professional window cleaning company. You buy a commercial window cleaning product, apply it to the glass, wipe it, then it’s clean. But professional window cleaning is about so much more than just mopping and squeegeeing!


Sure, you might have cleaned your windows before, but there’s a difference between cleaning your house windows over a whole weekend than cleaning a retirement village 4000 windows in a couple of days. It takes great skill and technique to clean several hundred windows each day and repeat this every day for the whole week. You need to be able to finish these windows in a timely manner to complete the work to the timeframe allocated.


Aside from working fast, accuracy is likewise essential. What does it matter if you squeegee 200 windows when all of them have water dripping down them? Would the top retirement villages in the country be satisfied with streaky glass? A professional window cleaner cleans the window, the frames, the tracks and ensures it’s completed in a spot-free, streak-free manner. At Shimmer Glass and Pressure Cleaning our professional window cleaners are trained to deliver outstanding results for every customer.

Customer Service

Customer Service

Knowing the customer and knowing how to resolve their concerns is as much a part of window cleaning and pressure cleaning as carrying out the job itself. A good professional window cleaner knows how to clean your windows, but a great one knows how to assess what a customer needs when the situation calls for it. From the get-go, the customer must be informed of what the job will entail and any potential hurdles when they book the job.

To be a professional window cleaner, a person must undergo training to know the different techniques that work best for a specific job. It takes time before someone can actually go out on the field unsupervised. This is to ensure that a technician has the aforementioned skills before face a client.
