The Power Of The Sunshine

Many window cleaners look for different advertising channels to increase their customer base, turnover and eventually profitability. Whilst doing so you must be conscious of the return of investment (ROI) after all we are running a business not for the fun of it or to fill our days but to make money.


Leicester Window Shine is at a stage where we have a large customer base throughout Leicester which includes residential and commercial window cleaning clients. The contracts have been established through previous advertising campaigns over many years alongside our most popular method of picking up a new customer, referrals from existing clients.


However it’s fair to say that all of the advertising and marketing campaigns we have ever scheduled  to find customers wanting a window cleaner have been  affected by the SUNSHINE or more to say the lack of it.

It's fair to say that relatively  all glass in windows on a dull and overcast day can look reasonably good and certainly would not catch an untrained homeowners eye. However any form of glass in a window on a bright sunny day, especially when we have low sunshine shows up all the dirt collected on the window and stands out like a saw thumb and needs cleaning.

A leafleting campaign during a week of overcast, dull and rainy weather will not perform close to the results obtained of a fresh bright sunny day.

I think it is fair to say with today's technology an online advertising campaign can be edited at a touch of the button and more investment should be placed on the campaign during sunny days to increase its effectiveness.


Although in early February we have experienced an increase in window cleaning and conservatory cleaning in Leicester through recent days where we have…….yes you guessed it experienced some sunshine !




HELPING A LOCAL LEICESTER BUILDING ACHIEVE GREAT THINGS !


Leicester Window Shine we're proud to have a hand (albeit very very small) in helping a local Leicester building win an award at the 2016 ProCon, Property and Construction awards. http://www.procon-leicestershire.co.uk/procon-awards/2016-awards/project/radha-soami-satsang-beas-rssb-building-leicester


The building known as Radha Soami Satsang Building is a modern, bright and peaceful meeting place for the Radha Soami Satsang Beas Science of the Soul, a philosophical organisation.
Leicester Window Shine have had the pleasure of maintaining the glass at the building for around 9 months and certainly concur with the thoughts of the judges that have recognised the impressive building for what it is. Although the height of the glass panels on the large building create somewhat of a cleaning challenge it certainly catches the eye of the Leicester skyline.

















A Great Job, Not a Cheap One

The question of price usually raises its head with 90% of new clients within the first contact, and of course we would not expect anything else.


If I was going to have a new driveway I would be comparing the price of different contractors as well as looking at their service, reputation and guarantee's they offer.


At Leicester Window Shine we do not strive to be the cheapest. We will quite happily point out you may find someone who comes out with his ladder for 6 months of the year and will clean your house for a fiver which he will put toward his beer money. I'm  sure you have seen the sorts..... the sun is shining so they stick on a cap and grab their ladders out of the back garden and off they trot sporting their nearly white vest whilst smoking a Lambert and Butler.


Will they guarantee their service ? Do They offer a money back guarantee ? Do they provide you with a receipt ? Are they insured ? Are they CRB checked ? what are the chances of them turning up next time you need your windows cleaned ?


I expect with some (Not all) there are question marks over the majority of those points.


We provide what we think to be the best window cleaning service in Leicester. We are not the cheapest but we do offer value for money. We turn up when we should, we do a great job and we don't make a song and dance about it !





Window Cleaning Intervals
Ring...ring...ring
"Hello, Leicester Window Shine how can we help ?"
"Id like my windows cleaned please and looking for a quote"
"Yes certainly can we take your address please to start with"
"Yes its 123 High Street"
"Great I know the area of Leicester well. We offer a regular window clean, how often would you like your windows cleaned ?"

This question seems to stump people, and I suppose if your not familiar with the window cleaning industry then your not likely to have a clue !.

Rightly or wrongly we offer the following advice to new clients. The advice is offered with a number of years of window cleaning experience under our hats and experience of what works and what doesn't.

2 Weekly Cleans : Predominantly for shop fronts, public houses and receptions for large office blocks. Their business relies upon a clean, fresh and high standard of appearance. There are very few residential customers that require such a standard to be maintained.

4 Weekly Cleans : The vast majority of our residential customers choose this option. For those customers who take a lot of pride in their house and want it's appearance to impress. I clean my windows at least every 4 weeks at home.

8 Weekly Cleans : For large offices that have a standard to maintain and promote a clean and healthy working environment for their staff.

12 Weekly Cleans (Every Quarter) : For larger more complex buildings that simply can not justify the cost of an 8 weekly window clean given the complexities of their building and the high cost of the clean given the access platforms that are required.










Do The Job Right !


Over recent weeks we have seen an increase in calls for one off window cleans covering the whole of Leicester and Leicestershire. However there has been a noticeable increase in the amount of calls from customers who reside in the West of Leicester.
This is surprising given that we are located and concentrate most of our efforts in the East of Leicester cleaning windows in the LE7 postcode.
Even with the distance we have to cover to reach the other side of the county we have been pleasently surprised at the feedback from customers who have found it appropriate to mention how surprised they are at the care taken to clean their windows.
The impression given was that perhaps the old window cleaner was a bit of a 'speed merchant' missing out on the quality but concentrating on the quantuty of customers.
We can assure every client that windows maintained by Leicester Window Shine are cleaned as they should be and time is taken to do the fob right !












Happy New Year


Leicester Window Shine would like to take this opportunity to wish all of our customers, old and new a Happy New Year.

For us it has been a year of progress in respect of achieving our goals and meeting the needs of our ever growing client base.

We thank you for all of your custom and support over the last 12 months and look forward to a fruitful and prosperous new year.



Best View Of The day


The lead up to the big day is a very busy period for window cleaners being contacted by customers who want their windows cleaning prior to the arrival of family and friends.

One of our regular clients was no exception and asked if they could get a window clean in before Santa arrived.

Well the window clean was completed today and we took an opportunity to take our eyes off of the glass and take in the scenery.

Now we clean a large number of residential properties that are surrounded by leicestershire's finest countryside but this view from the garden I thought was worth a mention. 












The Professional Window Cleaner

Over the last decade it has been clear to me that the window cleaning industry has in my opinion changed a great deal. The old fashioned image of 'Bucket Bob' in his scruffy jeans, trainers and white vest smoking a cigarette whilst balancing a ladder on his shoulders is gone.....well almost

The customers of today will not (most of the time) tolerate your average window cleaner who rocks up whenever he wants throws his ladders up and then takes the cash without knowing when he will be seen again. The professional modern window cleaner has well and truly arrived in recent years and is here for all to see.

The uniformed cleaners in their modern sign written vans is a far cry from your clapped out Vauxhall estate with no tax doing the rounds on a high end housing estate.

Personally when I look around the competition for Leicester Window cleaners I certainly notice that window cleaners in Leicester not only have to direct their skill base towards being able to clean a number of different types of surfaces but also have to have knowledge of advertising, marketing, website building, Cleaning chemicals and expensive equipment to name but a few. The equipment used by companies is hi-tec and expensive, but produce great results especially on UPVC
frames.

The days of showing your face at a commercial window cleaning venue in Leicester and offering your service and getting the job there and then is certainly a thing of the past. The competition is fierce  and relationships with decision makers have to be created, maintained  and nurtured.

The ability to be able to manage people is high of the list of skills a modern day window cleaner’s needs. The relationship with clients is of the upmost importance and any break down in relationships may see a loss of contract work and wording spreading in respect of the breakdown. Another window cleaner is never far behind you wanting to take on the work.

If an emphasis is to be placed on the relationships with clients then a good relationship with your staff and sub-contractors is imperative. Without the other team members not only maintaining expectations but exceeding them our reputation would be dented.

The modern day professional window cleaner in Leicester, the Midlands, the United Kingdom and the rest of the world has certainly arrived.

A tribute to the hardworking folks around the world within the growing window cleaning industry.

​I have not seen the window cleaner in a while ?

The phone rang during yet another busy and demanding day. The lady at the other end enquired about our one off window cleaning service at asked about costs. We are always able to give estimates over the phone but went on to explain that some windows are just dirtier than others, which of course alters the time in which it takes to clean them thus the estimated price is not fixed. On this particular occasions that was certainly the correct way to go about things given the dirt we were faced with !
 

Welcoming New Commercial Clients

Over the past month we had created space within our schedules to welcome additional commercial window cleaning clients. Our work and new client base has been varied from new contracts with care homes across the county to individual and independent retail stores.

All of the new customers have had one thing in mind…..to obtain and committed, highly respected and trustworthy window cleaner in Leicester that is able to accommodate to their cleaning needs.

We emphasise to any new client that image can be everything. Why would a leading and profitable company who want to attract their customer base into the shop or premise want their windows cleaned by a team of scruff bags ? Well of course they wouldn’t !.

Our window cleaners throughout Leicester are smart in their appearance, work with integrity and offer a first class service.

Bucket bob’s we are not.

For any new window cleaning requirements and for an informal chat and pricing estimate please contact us.

So how does the water fed pole system work?

In such system’s used by Leicester window cleaner’s at Leicester Window shine, a brush is used which is fitted at the top of the pole. This brush serves the purpose of loosening the dirt particles and scrubbing the windows and frames. Thus there are no streaks left after rinsing the window with pure water. It is a far better method than the squeegee and easily reaches every corner of the window whilst working from the ground. Using this system much less time is used for accomplishing the task of window cleaning than other traditional cleaning methods. The most important advantage of using this system is its ability to clean up various other things which are near the building like guttering, fascia’s , signs and so on.

The safety measures adopted by the Leicester Window cleaner whilst undergoing the water fed pole cleaning method-

In order to implement this method, the area around the building should be uncluttered and made free from any sort of tripping hazards. Your window cleaner will complete a risk assessment when on site.
Around the area where this process is implemented, bright signs and cones will be placed in order to warn the people about the danger which includes the hazards of tripping caused mostly by the railing hoses while process is being implemented.

Further Customers Welcomed This Week

Leicester Window Shine are pleased to welcome some new customers to our window cleaning rounds in Leicester this week. The new clients all suggested they had been looking for local a local Leicester window cleaner for some time. We got the impression, although this is not confirmed that they had been let down by other cleaners. However unprofessional it may seem there still tends to be the typical 'warm weather' window cleaners out there who turn up only when it is weather for shorts and expect to retain a customer base. It appears there are more and more customers who want clean windows but demand them throughout the year not just when its warm.

 

Internal Window Cleaning
Over the next 6 weeks or so we tend to see an increase in our clients requesting internal window cleaning by their local Leicester window cleaner.
Into the new year it seems people start to shake off the winter blues and look forward to the spring and summer, including their traditional spring cleans.
The low sun level at this time of the year really does highlight every mark on a piece of glass at certain times of the day which can of course appear rather unsightly.
At the moment we offer a fixed price internal window cleaning service throughout Leicester for a current customers at no more than 1.5 X the cost of their external glass clean.
If you wish to book in for an internal clean we kindly ask that the window sills are as clear as possible allowing easy access to clean the whole sill and the glass panel. We of course insured to complete such works however removing ornaments from the sill will of course prevent any accidents by the window cleaner.​ 

Getting Ready For 2015.

We are currently in the process of generating our new look website with more content than ever. However we are remaining committed to our usually daily business so it may take a little time for all of our pages to be fully accessible. We remain committed not to let the work on our new site interfere with our current client base and look forward to completing our Christmas cleans ! 

We will be keeping our fingers crossed that the mild weather continues and the winter snow does not interrupt our window cleaning schedules across Leicester. Should any new customers require a local window cleaner in Leicester before Christmas then please get in touch asap. We have tried to encourage our operatives to put our usual window cleaning uniform to one side and fashion a more festive  attire, but to date we have had no takers ??
