The first NEGSA Meet at the Poor Peoples Pub in Sanbornville NH focused on methods for testing abrasive and acid based products for safety. The second Meet will focus on the service of Scratch Maintenance. This Meet will also include seven hands on demonstrations. Scratch Maintenance is NOT being offered by any window cleaning company that I know of. And should be a very profitable service. It should also help you acquire many regular commercial jobs. Some of the demonstrations that will be shown at the PPP Meet you will be able to show to your potential customers. They will be very powerful marketing tools!
When glass is smooth with no factory surface defects and is not frictive, it is not prone to scratches. Therefore the first step when the Glass Smart window cleaner acquires a job is to clean all the windows very carefully and inspect each one for scratches. Whether the building is brand new or not. Then make notation of the results. Including notes on which surfaces are defective and or frictive.
Defective surfaces come that way from the factory. And frictive surfaces can also come from the factory too. But not only! There are certain acids and abrasives that can change a scratch resistant surface to a frictive surface. There are also chemistries that can change it back, and even make it more scratch resistant. It is going to completely shock all attendees as to exactly which ones these are. And again I will be demonstrating this.
Since the Glass Smart professional window cleaner will not be the only one to clean the windows, they should be cleaned and inspected on a very regular basis. If any chemical treatments have been applied they should be inspected for integrity.
There are also completely transparent plastic films that can be applied to certain areas such as door handles. or the bottom of doors where people push it open with their feet. Also places where foodstuff accumulates that must be removed on a regular basis. Such as the bottom part of restaurant windows. Here is a sample of one of these products. Very easy to apply. You should charge by the square foot and use your name.
