How much does it cost to clean a window?

The average cost to clean windows is between $165 to $180. Some companies might charge a flat rate per window, while others have a more adaptive pricing model. The number of window panes usually plays into the price, as individual panes take more time and materials to clean. The type of window (double-hung, casement, etc.) might also affect pricing. To find out how much it will cost to clean your windows, get estimates from top-rated window cleaners near you.

How do professionals clean windows?

Professionals use a basic solution of cleaning concentrate and water to get windows clean. They might use a scrubber to loosen grime and sun-baked debris off the glass, then begin working with a squeegee to make the glass perfectly clear. They will clean both inside and outside of the window. Professionals take extra care with individual divided panes to protect the edges.

Do you tip a window washer?

Whether you tip a window washer is up to you, but you can certainly give them a tip if they do a good job. This is a particularly nice gesture for workers who clean your windows under harsh conditions (e.g. hot weather). A tip between $5 and $20 is appreciated. If it’s a crew, you can throw in $5 or more per person, or just go with $20 if it’s a single person. Qualities of a job well done include timeliness, professionalism and friendliness.

What is included in window cleaning?

Typically, professional window cleaners will clean both the inside and outside of your windows, taking care to use different techniques as needed for different types of windows. They can remove hard water stains and perform deep cleans after new construction. 

Window cleaners may charge extra to remove, install, and clean screens and storm windows. They may also charge more to clean windows that are high off the ground. They will also usually clean window tracks, and can alert you if there’s a problem with your windows or trim.

How do I prepare for window cleaning?

You can do some light cleaning yourself. For example, you can wipe your window blinds. Also, clear the area inside and outside of belongings that could get in the cleaner’s way. Perform an inspection of your shutters and window screens to see whether you’d like them cleaned as well.

What do professional window washers use to clean windows?

Professional window cleaners often use an assortment of tools and equipment, including squeegees, sponges, dry cloths, a ladder and a window cleaning solution.

How much is commercial window cleaning?

The national average cost to clean windows is $120-$170. Typically, window washing for commercial spaces costs less per window than residential window washing, but has a higher overall price because the greater number of windows. Commercial window cleaning companies may charge a standard rate per window — for example, $3 to clean the exterior only, with a higher rate of $4 or $5 to also clean the interior. There may be an additional charge, such as an extra $1 per window, for scrubbing off water stains or deep-cleaning window tracks. Double-hung windows require more labor and will therefore cost more to clean. Companies may charge a flat rate, such as $8 per double-hung window or $9 per French door, to account for the added work. Building height will play a factor in window washing costs. Standard cleaning for one- and two-story buildings will typically stay within the same range, but cleaning high-rise windows may entail special safety permits and equipment, which would increase costs. Your location will also affect window washing costs. Smaller towns and areas with a lower cost to do business will have lower window cleaning rates than large cities.

Reviews for Carlsbad window cleaners
Thumbtack Customer
Ian And Ashley were very professional, and did a wonderful job. We hired them to clean up the windows after our house was painted. They scraped every window and finished in a timely manner for a very reasonable price. They both went back and checked to make sure all of the windows were spotlessly clean. Will use them again!

Brian just finished cleaning or windows and I didn't hesitate to give him a review. He did an amazing job! He was responsive to my request, showed up on time, reasonable pricing, took his time to clean every single glass window and tracks, was respectful to our space while he cleans and just a great guy. I will definitely use him again.

Ian did an outstanding job on our windows and screens. He cleaned the tracks both before and after doing the windows inside and out. I like that he washed the screens instead of brushing them. They are almost 20 years old, and they look great. I will absolutely hire him again.

Ian is hands down the best window cleaner I’ve ever hired. He was very responsive and fit us in on our very short timeline. His work is unparalleled. Our windows have never looked so good. Ian was a pleasure to work with and went above and beyond - cleaning extra areas and making everything sparkle. I will definitely use Ian again and already referred him to a friend.

I made appointments for both my home along with a rental property I own. I coordinated dates with my family and tenants. Furniture and other items near all windows were removed. I was assured with E & D Window Cleaning I "was on their calendar". The company did not show up to either appointment nor did they return my calls.

Absolutely elated with the work that Brian has done on windows of our house. I don’t think the windows have ever looked this clean or the tracks so pristine and white. In addition to the quality work, he is absolutely one of the nicest people I’ve encountered and we look forward to using his services again. I appreciate his honesty, punctuality and level of professionalism, I cannot recommend him enough.

We have a two story house that the Team managed to make the windows Twinkle with the sunlight. We had them do both interior & exteriors and it was truly worth the money. They have cutting edge equipment that we had no idea existed. They also cleaned the tracks & screens and we are good to go.

This is the second time I've used Kennedy Brothers and the work is fantastic. I am so happy to wake up and see the sunshine coming through my clean windows! The appointment was for 3:30 in the afternoon. I scheduled via the app (based on my response from Thumbtack) for the same day and there was a mix up with time, so, only one person was able to come. I have 35 windows in the house, and by the time he got to the inside, it was beginning to get dark. Rather than have him try to wash the windows in the dark, I just prioritized which ones I absolutely needed while we could still see. That said, he did a nice job, and I would use them again without hesitation. Thank you for making the last minute appointment work.

Very positive experience. First time using SLIC, won’t be the last. Carl was responsive and professional quoting and scheduling our project. Brian and his crew gave our windows, screens and backyard glass wall a fantastic cleaning. I really enjoyed having them complete our project, and felt comfortable allowing the crew into our home. Very positive experience.
