For Seth Kuddes, founding United Window Cleaning in 2007 was the realization of a long-held dream. As a student, he'd studied to become an entrepreneur, and getting his window-washing business off the ground was a goal he had long set his sights on. Though he could have remained content with the business of ridding windows of fingerprint smudges and whole faceprints, his inherent need for growth—and an inability to overlook dirt and stains on other home surfaces—left him with new inspiration. He soon expanded beyond window washing by offering peripheral services such as gutter cleaning and screen repair and replacement. In fact, he and his team now handle cleaning duties just about everywhere on home exteriors, from pressure washing dirty decks to flushing champion hide-and-seekers out of gutters.
