Founded in Kelowna in 1990, Sun Valley Window Cleaners has become the Okanagan’s foremost window cleaning company. With an experienced team of 10 technicians, we clean over 1000 homes, commercial buildings and strata complexes every year. We provide window cleaning and other services to Kelowna (including Big White), West Kelowna, Peachland, Summerland, Penticton, Lake Country and Vernon (including Silver Star).
Owner/Operations Manager, Ash Burnell, has almost two decades of experience in the customer service industry and has earned an enviable track record for exceeding customers’ expectations with consistent and inspiring leadership. Starting out briefly with McDonalds restaurants, Ash joined the team at several Starbucks Coffee outlets in Vancouver, and at age 23, became one of the youngest outlet managers in Canada. Ash moved with his family to the Okanagan and worked as the onsite manager at Todd’s RV & Campground in Peachland for seven summers. He also attended UBC Okanagan during this time, graduating with his degree in Business Administration in 2007. Ash joined Sun Valley Window Cleaners in 2011, purchasing the company from Martin McDermott in 2012.
Our team structure makes us unique amongst our peers. Each crew is run by a foreman (supervisor) who is accountable for the quality of work. The supervisors ensure nothing is overlooked and are empowered to resolve any issues in the moment. All crew members are actual employees of Sun Valley and because we believe they are so crucial to the success of our business, we offer them an inclusive benefits package – rare in this industry. Window cleaning is strenuous work requiring fit and healthy technicians, but even the strongest can develop aches and pains. We’re proud to provide our technicians with access to extended health & dental care without having to worry about the cost.
Ongoing investment in new equipment and techniques is important to remaining competitive and we work hard at setting the standard for window cleaning in the Okanagan. In 2000, we were the first local window cleaners to purchase our own 60′ boom lift. In 2012, we invested in a commercial grade hot pressure washer and in 2013, supplemented our manual tool arsenal with water-fed pole equipment for increased reach as an economical option. Our teams drive well-maintained, company-owned vehicles equipped with a full array of quality ladders, superior cleaning solutions and the best squeegees on the market! Sun Valley Window Cleaners is fully insured, carrying $5 million in commercial liability insurance and registered and in good standing with WorkSafe BC.
Our business is growing and becoming more diversified with value-added services. But it’s our commitment to perfect windows, punctual, friendly staff and safe work practices that continue to make us successful. We work at improving each and every day and look forward to the future of Sun Valley Window Cleaners. We’re passionate about window cleaning and would love to show you just what that passion looks like!
