Why is Gardiner pole systems one of the most popular water fed pole manufacturers in the UK? Should you buy from Gardiner pole system Ltd? In our opinion we have used Gardiner for water fed pole systems for over a decade now. Jarvis Clean have never had a problem with Gardiner window cleaning in Surrey so why change? We realise there are other really good water fed pole manufacturers in our industry and that everyone has a personal preference. There are other manufacturers that you can use like Streamline, Reach-iT, ionic and facelift.

Here are some reasons why having a website is a must for any business. We will examine three in this blog and in future blogs we will discuss how you can improve your own website on a low budget.
To be a Window Cleaner and to be successful in our window cleaning industry, you do not have to have a website. Many window cleaners have been established for decades and have built up a fine reputation. To be honest all you really need is a bucket, squeegee, applicator and some microfibre clothes and some water and a bit of soap and your away. For example the Window Cleaner who taught me had been cleaning in Richmond for over 40 years, he did not have a website but was successful.
However to start a window cleaning business now you do need a healthy website. According to Yell, 80% of people will look for a service online rather then a paper directory. If you want to grow your window cleaning business you need an online presence. There are lots of free companies online that will get you started. That is what we did at Jarviswindowcleaner. We started with a free website on Weebly and we are still with Weebly today.
Your website is the front door to your window cleaning business. Just like a shop front will explain what the customer is to expect when they enter the shop. Your website will explain, who you are, why the customer can trust your company and what services you provide. You could be the best window cleaner in the world, but if no customers can find your business then you will not get any work, right? Online advertising done professionally will help you get noticed. Of course recommendations are also a great way to get new customers and that will grow too with your website.
