Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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 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.

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.

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 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.

I asked on Thursday if they would be able to clean my windows (inside and out) and screens on Saturday. They were busy, but accommodated me. My windows, screens and sills are beautiful. 15 windows. 1 hour. $135. My new window cleaners. Diego, by the way, was sweet, professional and quick.

He was punctual. Diego is very professional, efficient, and very meticulous in his job. When I wanted him to remove part of the paper that protects the window frame that the painter forgot to remove, he said, "I already cleaned that window and removed the paper." He did it before I told him, that was being responsive. He reported what he found during window cleaning that needed attention such as tear on the screen. I appreciated that. So, in addition to window cleaning I asked him to repair 2 of the window screen. The windows are now shining clean. The price for the job is very affordable. I will highly recommend Diego who needs window cleaning. I will definitely use him again.

We had 18 windows and a slider to be cleaned, and 4 screens that needed replaced. Diego takes care of replacing the screens, (for an fee) but very well worth it. He did an outstanding job cleaning the windows and screens. Will definitely use him again

My windows are sparkling clean thanks to Gabriel. He did an excellent job on all my windows and screens and cleaned the window tracks. I hated opening the blinds on my sliding door because I couldn't stand looking at the filthy window and screen. Now I'll leave the blinds wide open! Gabriel was prompt, friendly and polite and I won't hesitate to have him back for more work. He did a fantastic job at a very reasonable price. Thank you so much!!

We had Gabriel clean all the windows in our two-story home, inside and out, including the screens and tracks. He also cleaned our gutters for a very reasonable price. He did an outstanding job. He is very personable, diligent, and seems to really enjoy his work. We definitely would hire him again.

Gabe arrived on time, was efficient and does excellent work. He answered all my questions and explained certain glass problems that occur on windows. He gave me tips on cleaning hard to remove substances, and, get this! He came out at 10a.m. on SuperBowl Sunday to work! Reasonable rates too and I added gutter cleaning and he did great with that also.
