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.

Will did a great job on our two story house, even getting some really tough to reach spots and cleaning them a second time to make sure they were spotless. Our windows were absolutely filthy, especially after all the fires, and he made sure they were thoroughly cleaned inside and outside. He was professional, transparent on pricing, and communicative. Really appreciated working with him and highly recommend!

Renato goes over and beyond when it comes to his job. He came right on time. He checked if I would prefer him to work with a mask. He did an extra door which I did not count during our message exchange. Renato was thorough, courteous, and exceptional at his work. He charges according to the doors and windows in the house. Pre-COVID I had a company come in and clean our windows and French doors. They would charge exactly what Renato quoted except they increased the price by 30% and I had to go on Thumbtack to look for someone else. So happy I found him based on the feedback of other reviewers.

OVR was great to work with - so quick to respond and set up the job - I needed it done the next day since I was about to receive a surprise visit from my mother-in-law and I wanted the house to look real nice. OVR came right on time and cleaned our floor to ceiling windows with so much care! Great experience, will hire again!
