Things to know before you get started.
7 Steps to Hiring a Window Cleaner
  1. 1. Look for companies that specialize in residential cleaning. Commercial cleaning companies often don't have experience working around furniture or on residential carpeting.

  2. 2. It's especially important to have a pro clean exterior windows on upper stories because he or she will have all the necessary safety equipment available.

  3. 3. When interviewing window cleaners, verify if they have current insurance. Cleaning windows can be a dangerous job, and you don't want to be on the hook should damage occur.

  4. 4. Do a walk-through with your washers and ask them to point out any problem areas and state what their recommendations are.

  5. 5. Get estimates and ask if they provide written guarantees for the work. Hire a cleaner who has a reasonable rate.

  6. 6. If you have window screens, ask if the professional can clean these, too. This should be included in the price of your estimate. Also ask if the pros clean the sills and tracks of the windows, too.

  7. 7. The day before your pro comes to clean, be sure he or she can access your interior windows easily. Move furniture if necessary and take any curios off of the sills to avoid damage.
