Complaint: Window Genie cleaned my windows in mid May. They did a great job cleaning the windows, but under one window they scratched a piece of my furniture that I offered to move it(not realizing it was going to be scratched, but that it appeared it might be a hinderance). The gentleman said it was fine. I looked over a handful of windows and they looked great. That evening I realized my nightstand was scratched (less than a year old) I noticed two large scratches were in the top of the furniture. I called the business on numerous occasions. They offered several times to come out and take a look, but never showed. I really just want this repaired right away and tired of wasting time and energy on this fix. Huge dissapointment and they have not won me as a long time customer.
Desired Settlement: I would like a furniture repair person to come and repair my furniture or a replacement (which is really unnecessary), but tired of dealing with it.
Response to customer issue ID *******.
Better Business Bureau:
I have reviewed the response made by the business in reference to complaint ID *******, and have determined that this does not resolve my complaint. For your reference, details of the offer I reviewed appear below. Please see my comments below highlighted in Blue.
Customer is a 1st time ****** ****** daily deal customer. I've purchased from them prior to this purchase, but yes this is how I became aware of his business and services. We cleaned Mrs. ******'s windows on 5/17/12. Correct. I had two techs at the site for the window cleaning that day. Mrs. ****** followed the team around and was satisfied with the work. I checked in on them from time to time, but was not with them the entire time. Our policy is to have our work inspected and have customer sign the invoice prior to the team leaving the site. I didn't inspect every window, just a handful and didn't check the window area in question prior to them leaving. I didn't know that I should have inspected every one. I thought there was some trust if I selected a few randomly. This policy has been the same for 16+ years. Mrs. ****** signed the invoice and the techs moved on to the next job for the day. I received a call the next day or two stating that my team had scratched a piece of furniture when they laid a window down on it. It was the next day and I stated that when I walked into the room where the scratch occurred, I offered before he started cleaning that window to move the furniture. He said it would be fine and I never saw a towel laid on the furniture. Our policy and training requires: 1) that we don't lay anything down on the customer's furniture; 2) if we have to, we place a towel down to protect it and/or catch the drips; and, 3) we also require our customers to remove any knick knacks or obstacles that may impede our ability to clean (our regular customers know the routine). This didn't happen and my intention was to become a regular customer if they did a good job and I was satisfied. I shouldn't be getting blamed for being a ****** ****** client when his company chose to offer the deal. If something is in the way, we just move on to another window. The technician did clean this window and the furniture was right below it.
I offered to take a look at the situation and we did play some phone tag and missed several opportunities to review the situation. Correct. I did leave a message after her vacation that I was in the area with the two techs in question and would be happy to stop by for a look. He left a message during my travel for work which I told him in advance that I would be out of town and I called him back as soon as I returned home. I didn't get a response but did talk to her on the phone on another date. This is incorrect. I had to keep calling him and try to get him to come out. I told her our policies and that Window Genie is not responsible for scratched furniture and that we do on occasion have to repair broken glass if it's our fault. You are responsible for the scratches made by your techs when they cause the damage. It is no different than any other kind of damage similiar to broken glass when the client offers to move the furniture out of their way. Mrs. ****** stated that we tilted the window in and laid it on the night stand. You have to angle the non-tiltable straight windows to get that back into the track. They are approximately 40 something inches tall. The windows in question don't tilt in and my team took the sliders out and laid them on a towel on the floor so as to not get any dirty water on her carpet. My team stated that they never scratched her furniture and that she was with them the whole time. They did scratch the furniture and I was not with them the entire time. As stated earlier, I would check in on them as they were cleaning. I had to work that day and do so from home. I am not sure what could scratch furniture as our gear is mostly plastic and rubber. The edges of the windows are very hard plastic and possibly some metal. To be honest I'm not sure and I'm not an expert at window materials. We carry our equipment in a protective sleeve on our belts. If we break something, we fix it--that is part of our customer service program. Then why is this not the case now. Your refusal at this point to even come and look at the issue certainly doesn't follow a good customer service program. My team has no reason to not own up to what they break. Our policy states that if something happens while on the job that they are to call me immediately to let me know. My team knows they will not be fired for breaking glass, running over mail boxes, bumping fenders or things like that. I do believe her when she says that she has a scratch. I just am not sure how it got there. I told Mr. Junkerman how it got there and he is in denial.
