cleaning evestroughs

The first year we used White Shark they were okay. The second year they didn't show up in the Fall and instead came in the Spring and dented our evestroughs with their ladder. The third year they called in the Fall and told us they'd be coming in the Spring and we told them to take a hike. And they have the gall to stick a sign on their customers' front lawns and leave it when they're done.

window cleaning

They had left spots on a window and I'd asked them to go back upstairs and clean it so it was fully clean. They said the spots weren't coming off easily, but they went back up to finish the job properly, upon my insistence. However, when I checked later, after they were gone, I discovered that the glass was now cracked. It was a single-pane window in a historical house, which now has a hairline crack through it. I was disappointed because I'd seen their signs all over the neighborhood. Come to think of it, I haven't noticed their signs up, outside people's homes -- at least not as frequently as I used to. I wonder if this is a reflection of the fact that perhaps others have had similar problems? Or maybe I now have a tendency to tune out their signs.

External Window Cleaning

They have excellent customer service and were very friendly over the phone when I booked my appointment. They also squeezed our house in for cleaning last minute as we were putting our house on the market in a few days. Great job, thanks!

Window Cleaning

Each spring I have my windows on the outside cleaned.
White shark comes and does a great job. I am always very happy with the service. I don't need to be home, I call and they give me a time that they will show up. I get home and my windows are sparkling!

Eaves Cleaning

I had used this company to clean my eaves in 2007. That went relatively well so I re-booked for next year's eaves cleaning. Due to inclement weather they didn't begin eaves cleaning for the season until late into the season and by the time it was our turn, winter was upon us and due to safety, our eaves weren't cleaned that year. Fair enough. Things happen. We re-booked for the following year and it occurred again. We decided that planning for these situations and ramping up workforce to deal with these types of incidences seemed not to be of top priority with this company. We decided to go with Clearview and so far so good. They seemed to do a decent job and have been fairly reliable.

Eaves Cleaning

White shark cleaned our eaves twice. They were not cheap. The second time they did a very poor job.

There are two reasons why I think they did a poor job. The first reason occurred a few days after they finished--it rained. Shortly after it started to rain, water started to come into our back room (this was the first good rain of the season). Luckily, it was the only trough I have a ladder tall enough to reach. I took the ladder out in the middle of the storm and cleared it out myself. It was full of debris. They'd obviously missed it completely.

The second reason I think they did a poor job occurred two weeks later. A different eaves cleaner - who was cleaning the eaves of the neighbour's attached house- asked if we wanted our eaves cleaned because they were almost all full of water (they were up on the neighbour's roof so they could see our eaves as well; we can't see inside most of our eaves very well from inside the house).

Of course, initially I said that we'd just had them cleaned. So, this could not be possible. But they assured me that most of the eaves were blocked--After thinking about the earilier experience, I agreed that they could re-do mine.They were right. They brought down another bag of debris. They mentioned that the eaves were poorly done and the cages were not cleaned at all--the ignored cages being mostly responsible for the blockage.

I had not paid the bill at this point. So, I called up and explained both issues. No apologies. A vague mention of a small discount. Very defensive. Mentioned I should have called White Shark immediately if there was a problem. Since, I had someone else clean them it was my fault that white shark have no proof. So, white shark could not do very much for me. I briefly think I should ask to talk to her manager but then think there is no way i would treat a (returning) customer like this. I've also had enough.

I'm supposed to call them in the middle of a storm to clean them? i can't see the inside of the eaves anyways. how am i supposed to know how good a job they did? That's the problem. I'll never know how good a job anyone does cleaning my eaves (well, unless they do a terrible job and a tree starts growing out of the eaves). So, the job is obviously about trust. And, they certainly do not have mine.

paid the bill. that is the last time i deal with white shark

Eaves Cleaning

White Shark cleaned our eaves 2 times. Selling other products and services as a large part of their cleaning. You have the ability to book future cleaning a year in advance but that does not mean they will actually show up. Not only do they not show up in the time period requested, they also do not contact you to say they will not be coming. You could end up waiting until spring. We did. No thanks! I want someone reliable or at least courteous enough to get in touch.

eaves cleaning

I hired White Shark to clean my eaves this spring. I actually expected them to clean them! They left from the job, leaving me a bill of $240. A few weeks later, I noticed some leaking. I took a ladder up to check the eaves, and they were full of leaves and debris. I had also asked for cages to be installed over the downspouts. I was charged for the cages ($50), but they were nowhere in sight. I was upset, and decided to call the company. I dealt with a woman named Shanti who said that the crew was there and they cleaned the eaves out. I told her that was impossible, since I went up to look myself. I was not impressed that they doubted their own customer's word. I am going to find a more professional company to clean my eaves next spring.

Eaves trough cleaning

I have used this company every year for over 5 years -- they are that reliable and good. They will clean the troughs and leave bill in mailbox so no need to stay home for their visit.
