I would first like to say thank you for sharing your window cleaning information/experience with us (internet users).


I would like to know if you need any qualifications at all in regards to window cleaning ex: working in a confine spaces certificate?

Thank You

As far as needing any special window cleaning qualifications -- you do not need any in order to start and operate a window cleaning business. Some city and state laws may require you to have a registered business license along with a special operating license to conduct your window cleaning business within city limits. You will need to find out if this is the case in your area.

As far as special window cleaning qualifications, training and certificates, the more you have the better for marketing. If you can prove that you have more training than your competition then you will definitely have an edge. There are special classes and certified safety training courses that you can attend through organizations such as the IWCA (International Window Cleaning Association). IWCA

One more important thing to have is a good insurance policy that has at least a minimum of 2 million dollars worth of liability coverage.

Window Cleaning Qualifications
by: Frank Summer

If you are thinking about starting a window cleaning business and don’t think you have the qualification then here are some points to ponder.

1. Self Improvement and personal growth.

Study the window cleaning industry leaders and read books on entrepreneurship. Learn when and where window cleaning conferences are held and attend them. Contact local window cleaning business owners and interview them about their own success. In Short become a student of the trade.

2. Take Action

You can read all the books and attend all the seminars for ever but if you don’t take action you will never get off the ground. In other wards start walking the walk and not talking talk. Don’t be afraid to make mistakes you will learn as you go. Make small daily goals and keep track of what you accomplished.

3. Get Feedback

Don’t be afraid to ask your new window cleaning customers how they would rate your overall performance. This will help you grow and correct past mistakes. If you have new idea’s bounce it off customers and others you trust so that you don’t miss what could be a good opportunity.

4. Your Customers are Always Number One

Always put yourself in your customer’s shoes. What kind of value are you to them and are you filling their specific needs. Pay attention to how your window cleaning customers live, what their life style consists of and respond appropriately.

5. Get Support from Others

If you encounter a project that may seem over your head ask for help. Find people you know and trust to give you advice or even help you execute the job for a fee. Don’t be afraid to teem up with other window cleaners on larger jobs. Networking can be a real benefit.

The most important thing - don't spend too much time wondering if you have all the window cleaning qualifications just get started.
