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.

My son's house hadn't been cleaned in years. Kevin went the extra mile and even cleaned overgrown plant off the patio. Windows sparkling, screens cleaned and window sills scrubbed. I highly recommend Kevin and Blue Moon!

Rick and his colleague did a great job cleaning our windows! They arrived timely and immediately started working. We have a lot of windows and if took them more than 3 hours—and now all the windows are sparkling clean thanks to them. Very professional and easy to communicate. Will definitely hire them again next year!

I requested them to clean windows for my single family home. I rate this 3 star because I am not happy with the final results. Over all they did a good job, cleaned the windows and showed up on time. The only thing I didn't like was how they cleaned the window tracks which was the most important part for me for this job else I would have cleaned the windows myself. I found there was still dust and dirt left in the corners. I had some dead flies trapped in the window tracks and some were still there after they were done cleaning. I am now having to go back and re-clean the traps myself which defeats the purpose of getting them done by someone else. I paid the price they asked + 30% tip but I am not satisfied with the results. I will not use this pro again.

Tyler is fantastic, such a lovely guy and the end result was gleaming. Having not had our windows cleaned in a very long time, they are spotless now so I highly recommend him! One of our windows was targeted by a bird recently too and he even managed to get this window looking as good as new, so thank you Tyler!

E & D just did 2 large custom windows at my house. They did a great job and couldn't be happier. The windows were very dirty and they goth them as clean as could possibly be done. The price was great and the guys were professional, punctual and hard working. I will definitely be using them going forward for my window needs.

All I can say is a I had a stellar experience from working within my budget to getting my windows cleaned. Carl and Tyler were able to fit me into an earlier schedule and showed up ready to clean some very dirty windows. I was thoroughly impressed with the routine of pulling all the screens out and running them through a screen cleaning device. I want to invest in one but wouldn't be practical since I plan on having the crew come back out for an annual maintenance. No disappointments on my choice of window cleaners. Even was able to get a section of my roof pressure washed. Thanks Guys!!!
