Our commercial window cleaning contracts actually gave our business a lot of flexibility this year. This was contrary to what we thought would happen. We’ll be clear, not all of our commercial work came back to us this year. There are still businesses that are not ready to have their windows cleaned, but we have talked with all of our commercial clients to let them know we are still available when they need it.
Large Commercial Window Cleaning Contracts
This year, the commercial window cleaning we have been able to maintain provides long-term project work for a few different teams that we employ. We maintain large commercial contracts with famous buildings and cleaning all of the residential buildings. There are many multi-month projects that take our dedicated team to complete.
There are massive contracts, and it provides a lot of stability within our business. One of the added benefits is that any day where we have last-minute cancellations, instead of sending that crew home early, we can send them to chip away at a large commercial project.
Commercial Window Cleaning Contract Examples
Aside from landing a massive contract with one of the largest employers in your area, what are some other examples of commercial work that has aided our stability through this season?
- Regular Storefront Cleaning. We clean a lot of storefronts (and we try to service them all in a row). Doing a single store-front once isn’t great for businesses. However, if you can string together a few in the same area and repeat service once or twice a month then that is much more sustainable revenue.
- City contracts. For example, in each of the cities we operate in (including our Franchise cities) we maintain municipal contracts. Getting a municipal contract will help to solidify your presence in an area. An added bonus is that cities tend to continue operations (even if modified) through thick and thin. This is not an end-all solution, but city contracts can help steady a blow.
- Rental and Property management companies. These companies are another example of solidifying your local presence in an area. Generally, they serve a large group of properties with some sort of established reputation. This reputation can be good or bad, as explained below.
