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.

The service I requested was only for exterior window cleaning. When Jerome was cleaning the windows, I felt the inside of couple of my big sliding doors were dirty too, so I requested him to clean inside as well and said would pay more. But Jerome said, couple of windows here and there doesn't really matter, what matters is customer satisfaction and he offered to clean them at no additional cost. I appreciate that. Also, he could have finished cleaning all my windows in an hour or so, but he spent considerable amount of time on each window and looked from all angles/directions to make sure each of it is spot clean. I am really happy with Universal's work and would definitely recommend/repeat them. For that matter, I am hiring them again for my in-house cleaning.

We are very pleased with our experience hiring Universal Cleaning Services to wash the outside windows of our home. Jerome, the owner, was very responsive and professional in every aspect of scheduling and performing the work. The cleaning was very thorough and he took care in assuring we were happy with the results. He was punctual in arriving to perform the work and offers a very good value for the quality and price of the service. I highly recommend his company and will use Universal again for window cleaning and other related services they perform.

Alan was on time, worked hard, did a highly commendable job especially considering my windows may have never been cleaned before. He was quiet, careful with everything in my home, friendly and cheerful. His price was competitive and reasonable. He was thorough and respectful. I have only positive things to say about his work.

Allan was right on time and got right to work. His attention to detail is amazing. He definitely takes pride in his work. I've had other window cleaners who bang around and make noise but I couldn't even hear Allan. I wasn't expecting him to do the gutters and thought it would be extra but he did them too. I've told all my coworkers about him and two of them are going to hire him. I would definitely hire him again! Allan does an amazing job!
