Window Cleaning Insurance
Window cleaners operate in a variety of ways, from the traditional approach to the high tech solutions and sometime this may also involve a high hazard environment, all depending on the location and specification of the windows that they are cleaning.
We will look at some of the common issues that window cleaners face and how that can be mitigated by having specialist window cleaning insurance cover in place.
Ground Level Window Cleaning by hand - this is probably the most common method of cleaning windows, both internally and externally and whilst the risk to the operative is low, the risks of scratching the glass or damaging the frames remains high.
A small piece of grit or dirt under the cleaning cloth can cause havoc, so it is vital that a new cloth is used each time you clean and that obviously you check the window surface for any debris before starting the work.
When you are working domestically, you sometime have to reach that little bit higher and that is where a low level pole system can come into play. This will allow someone stood on the ground to clean a high window without the need for a step ladder and all the potential dangers that involves.
However, the pole system will also have it's risks in terms of damage - grit and debris on the brushes, or over use and pressure on delicate frames can sometimes lead to issues.
A specialist Window Cleaning Insurance policy from Gleaming Insurance can help mitigate any problems you may have should an issue arise.
You will face more trickier problems if you are cleaning in commercial environment, such as work at height and wherever possible this should be done using the appropriate equipment - short poles for cleaning high level windows that you can access from a balcony being another example of using the appropriate tools for the job in question, which is something that Window Cleaners Insurance providers would always expect.
