Frequently Asked Questions
We have put together a list of questions we are most frequently asked, if you don't find your question answered on this page please contact us.
Do I need to provide you with water?
When we come to your home we will have everything needed to get the job done. Small things like this distinguish us from part time “amateur” window cleaners. We are professionals and as such have all the tools for the job.
Do you collect money in person?
You can pay in cash on the day of your clean, immediately after your windows have been done. Please note however that we NEVER collect money in the evenings or on weekends. Con artists have been known to try and collect window cleaning money in this way. Please be careful and aware of this potential scam. If in doubt please call me directly on M: 07935 382 279.
Do you give an exact day and time that you will come to clean my windows?
Due to having a large number of customers this is not possible. We did trial this in the past with the result that we couldn't keep to exact appointments due to unforeseen circumstances getting in the way such as traffic jams which was frustrating for both customers and us!
We will guarantee to clean your windows on the week they are due. This means that if your windows are due on a Tuesday for example we will clean them one day that week, though it won't necessarily be the exact day since the last visit i.e. Tuesday in our example.
Do you provide interior window cleaning?
While the majority of our work is external window cleaning we do provide internal window cleaning on request. The cost of internal window cleaning is greater than external window cleaning due to the length of time required to complete the job.
It is not unusual for internal window cleaning to take double the time of external window cleaning. This is directly linked to the fact we need to take great care inside your home to avoid accidents (e.g. water spillage, ornaments need to be moved etc) and the fact that we are perfectionists – we will not rush the job.
Do you work in the rain?
Due to the highly unpredictable UK weather and the fact that we have a full schedule of customers we do clean windows in the rain. Working in this way ensures that you get your windows cleaned regularly. Contrary to popular opinion windows are not made dirty by rain water. It is only if the windows are already dirty that rain may highlight this dirt.
We have found that the quality of our work is not compromised by rain.
So that you have complete peace of mind I offer a 24 hour guarantee. If you are atall unhappy with any of your windows simply give me a call and I will re-clean the affected windows free of charge.
I offer this guarantee on all my work, whether it has rained or not.
Do you work Saturdays and Sundays?
At the moment we do not, however we will inform you if this changes in the future.
How can I pay?
There are 4 easy ways to pay for your window cleaning. Please see our Payment page for more details.
How does Pure Water Window Cleaning work?
When tap water is applied to a glass surface and allowed to dry, the minerals in the water that are left behind cause spotting and watermarks. These minerals are too heavy to be evaporated. If these minerals are removed via filtration then the result is pure water which is pH 0.
Lions of London use this pure water, applied using a soft brush, to your windows. The pure water absorbs the dirt and dust contaminates found on the window. The window is then rinsed using pure water and allowed to dry naturally, to a spot free finish. The pure water will evaporate completely leaving no spotting and no water marks.
How often do you clean windows?
We offer a 4 or 8 weekly service on residential window cleaning.
I have a question that isn't in this FAQ, what should I do?
Please do not hesitate to contact us and we will do our best to answer your question(s).

What happens if I am not in when you come round?
We do not actually require that you to be home when we clean your windows. In fact the vast majority of our customers are out when we come around. If you are not home we will leave a clear receipt of the date and time that you're clean was carried out along with payment information. If for some reason we were unable to gain access to the rear of your property we will clean the front of your dwelling and charge you a reduced rate.
What happens when you first come to clean my windows?
When we arrive at your home we will first give you two information fact sheets. The first gives an overview of our work and what you can expect. The second is our Guarantee, which gives you complete peace of mind.
We will then carry out a survey of your property to ascertain the best way to clean your windows. We do this for two reasons: 1) to ensure you get the best possible cleaning results and 2) to ensure all health and safety factors are taken into consideration. We will then get to work.
We encourage questions as we want you to be completely informed and satisfied with your window cleaning. If you have any queries feel free to ask.

We appreciate that your life is busy and hectic. We therefore give you 7 days in which to pay us. You can use any of the 4 methods of payment on our Payment page. While we understand that sometimes you may be late in paying due to unforeseen circumstances we cannot except continued late payment or the racking up of large bills. Doing so may result in us having to withdraw you from our round. If you have any queries on this please feel free to ask.
