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.

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 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.

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.

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.

Ian confirmed the appointment the day prior, and showed up promptly for the appointment. Throughout the job he was very professional, personable, and courteous. He thoroughly scrubbed the sills and screens, and throughly cleaned all of the Windows until they sparkled! His price was very reasonable and worth every penny. I highly recommend his window cleaning service and will definitely use Pane N' The Glass again!

Ian arrived on time, did a quick review of the job and started in right away. The windows, screens and window tracks were all professionally cleaned. We're very happy with the results. He was very neat working inside our house and he also pointed out a few potential flaws with the newer windows we just had installed. In summary, we are very happy with the job done at a reasonable price.

Michael was friendly and provided outstanding service. I hired him to clean my windows only but he cleaned all the mirrors and glass surfaces inside the house. He cared and payed utmost attention to details. Definitely recommend to anyone!

Rick was immediately responsive to my original inquiry, gave me a very fair estimate, and punctually arrived at the exact date and time I needed the job done. He and his work partner began immediately and completed everything in less than 90 minutes. The inside and outside of the windows and sashes were impeccably cleaned, all the channels and sills were wiped, and not a trace of water left behind. I am pleased beyond my highest expectation and absolutely want to recommend True Window Washing to everyone. I forgot how important that clean-window sparkle is to my home and they delivered!

Overall I think they did a good job and were very pleasant to deal with. Their price was good ($245). I noticed issues with a few windows before they left and Nick did his best to resolve them. Unfortunately I didn’t view all of the tracks that they were supposed to clean before they left. I found a couple of tracks that they completely missed cleaning. I thought I saw Ryan brushing out the slider track, but I had to spend a fair amount of my own time to properly clean it so that the door would slide properly (house had been a rental and tenants hadn’t cleaned track for a while). It appears that the brush method doesn’t work well for a slider track. Also they left all of my windows unlocked after cleaning them. With this house being vacant I could have had some issues, but fortunately I noticed it the next day and locked all of them.

I really can't say enough good things about this Company. From the beginning, Ian was one of the first quotes to respond. The pricing was very competitive and all of our communications were friendly and professional. Ian showed up exactly on time and got right to work. He was exceptionally thorough and advised me of any window issues or imperfections he found. And, of course, the windows look great and there's nothing like air through clean screens. I would absolutely recommend his work and will plan on calling him again. P.S. I think the Company name is very clever :)
