GANA guide lines for tempered glass

The GANA guidelines for cleaning tempered glass, are a big concern for me. I live in a very liberal state where the courts tend to view the business as the villain and the customer as the poor victim. I have been told that a glass waiver may not always hold up in court. A liberal judge could say I ignored the GANA guide lines and acted in an unprofessional manner. I should know better than to scrape a customers tempered glass with a razor.

I have been thinking about following the GANA guide lines and using only very fine steel wool. Of course I would charge accordingly. I have heard that it can take up to 5 or 10 times longer to remove paint from a window with steel wool instead of a 6 inch razor. I do not do construction clean up. Sometimes I have to deal with a lot of paint removal though.

In a typical NEW house 2,500 to 5,000 square feet how many tempered glass windows would there be? Can all the windows be tempered or is it usually just a few around door ways and near the floor? If all the windows are tempered the price would be way too high ($10-$20 extra per window?) but if it’s just five or ten windows they might pay extra just to be safe.

It’s not just tempered you have to worry about. There’s also heat strengthened glass that has fab debris. HS glass has no tempering stamp so you won’t know if your scraping it. Either hang up your scraper all together or take a waiver to a lawyer and have it written to protect you in your state. Talk to Dan Fields about what to do. If you ever get into trouble Dan can and has helped many wcers win cases against them. In fact I believe Dan has never lost a case where a waiver was signed. I’d rather fight than ever let GANA’s lies take the most effective and “green” tool for removing debris out of my hands. “They can have my scraper when they pry it from my cold dead fingers!”
