  • 5/5 stars Window Cleaning Verified Review

    Jim Ordway and his assistant of Beckon Call provided outstanding service in getting our windows to sparkle again. He was here a couple of days after the initial call and arrived on time and ready to go. I recommend him highly!

    Let's just say my windows were pretty dirty and now they are very clean. The best part? No streaks when the sun is out.

  • 5/5 stars

    The windows in my home are a challenge to clean, but Jim was up to the challenge and did a great job. He was prompt, did exactly what he said he would do and his fee was very reasonable. I will recommend his services to my friends.

  • 5/5 stars

    Jim and his company are top notch! Not only did Jim do an amazingly thorough job cleaning my windows (right down to the mold between the siding) at a reasonable price, but Jim was also professional, prompt, super friendly, dependable, and fast-working.

    Although I had never had my house's windows cleaned before Jim, I'm now sold! I'll definitely use Beckon Call and Jim again, and I whole-heartedly recommend them to anyone!

    Jim and his son Sebastian did a great job inside and out cleaning our windows and screens and power washing our drive way and patio. The price was very reasonable. I have no reservation in recommending them.

    Thanks Darrel! Was a fun job and always nice having the neighbors checking out the work as well! -Jim

  • 5/5 stars

    I am very impressed with Jim and his work! The window washer I first hired couldn't make it at the last minute and he recommended Jim at Beckon Call, who rearranged his schedule to get the job done in time for my realtor tour. The windows sparkle and have never looked so good. Not only that, but he charged less than the company I hired originally! That was a very nice and welcome surprise. I will most definitely hire Beckon Call again. They're amazing. Do not hesitate to call Jim--you will be so glad you did!

    They are simply..."THE BEST". Not only did they do a great job on the windows...he still had pictures (and remembered my dogs name) from three years ago. Why would I go anywhere else?!

    Who could forget an awesome dog like Oscar? :o)

    Jim not only cleaned our challenging scary high windows perfectly, but performed other useful high-wire repairs and maintenance that we could never do ourselves. He responded quickly to our calls and returned promptly to fix additional problems as they arose. We have been looking for a company like Beckon Call for years and are delighted to have finally found it. Thanks Jim!

    Jim and his son, Sebastian, recently cleaned our windows and power-washed our vinyl siding. They did an outstanding job! We can now see the beautiful outdoors ever so clearly now, and the siding looks almost new again. They are professional, courteous, and a great value. Beckon Call gets our call!

    best window cleaners ever!!!

    This was our second time having Beckon Call clean our windows and screens. The job they performed was awesome and they are reliable, professional, courteous and affordable. As our house has alot of windows which are very high, it was wonderful to be able to see out of them again.
    I recommend Beckon Call for window/screen cleaning services!

  • 5/5 stars Verified Review

    It was fortunate for me when I happened onto Facebook one day last year and found an ad for Beckon Call. Since it was a local firm and my windows needed to be cleaned, I gave them a call. I received a prompt, courteous, professional response and a very reasonable estimate on the cost. With very little wait time, Jim and his son arrived and cleaned my windows quickly and thoroughly and at a reasonable cost. I've just had Jim and his two sons return today to clean not only my windows, but the windows at a residence where my daughter moved from plus those at her new home. They did a wonderful job at all three locations. Additionally, Jim applied a moss killer to the roof of my home. All three of these men are professional in every aspect from their performance and desire to please to how they present themselves. I would not hesitate to recommend them unconditionally.

    Jim & Sebastian have been doing my windows, roof, and gutters for almost three years. They are on time, do excellent work, are very reasonable, and are fun. They are warm, caring people who truly put service first.

  • 5/5 stars

    Great job! The windows (and screens) look better than I had ever imagined they would. Jim is a very pleasant person, too. I will recommend Beckon Call to others and hope to have this service back myself in the future.

  • 5/5 stars

    Our windows have never looked better! We have lots of windows in our home, and Jim did a fantastic job cleaning them. It's really changed our space. Jim is prompt, neat, courteous and professional. Did I mention his pricing is very reasonable?

  • 5/5 stars

    We needed windows for a sales listing cleaned the next day, Jim was ready and willing to come the next day at 6am (!), cleaned perfectly well and was reasonable. Great service!

  • 5/5 stars

    Jim Ordway has done a thorough job cleaning my windows and skylights for several years now. He has also cleaned my patio. He is lucky to have his son as a helper. His prices are reasonable; he has the needed equipment; he desires to please. I have recommended him to a number of my friends, who in turn have recommended him to theirs. R.S.

    Beckon Call takes the service of Window Washing and Cleaning to the next level. I appreciate their professionalism, and best of all, my windows - the very FIRST impression of my business - look great! Thanks Jim!

    We have Beckon Call clean our windows at our Jamba Juice in Corvallis. Jim does an amazing job! The windows look great! You always know when he has cleaned the windows, they sparkle!! We highly recommend him.

    Jim and his son are tops in all accounts ... reliable, professional, friendly, reasonably priced and they do a great, thorough job. I hope to be able to use their services for a long time to come, as they are the best!

  • 5/5 stars

    Jim is very professional and takes his work seriously. My windows were unusually dirty and Jim did his best to get them clean and work with me on making the job right. I totally appreciate his dedication to doing the job at it's best.

  • 5/5 stars

    Jim and his son were like Santa Claus, they "Spoke not a word, but went straight to work." That's not quite true, Jim was quite cordial, I enjoyed chatting with him while he washed our screens (something a lot of window cleaners don't do). Jim was recommended to us by
    good friends in Albany, who heard about him from their neighbors. I had been disappointed with the person I hired last year, who charged the same amount but didn't do a very good job. Jim's
    prices are reasonable and they did a thorough and professional job and cleaned up after themselves. I would recommend them to anyone. Also Jim seems very knowledgeable about window 'stuff' so he is a full service window service business. They even removed the removable plastic grids from our garage door windows and cleaned the garage door windows inside and out!

Question and answer

Q. Describe the most common types of jobs you do for your clients.

A. The most common type of job we do is (drumroll)... Window Cleaning!

Although we love cleaning windows, we also provide other services, like:

• Pressure Washing
• Gutter Cleaning
• Fire alarm battery replacement (some of these lil buggers are pretty high)
• Chandelier cleaning and light replacement

No matter what the job we do for you is, you can count on us delivering top-notch quality. We really believe in our tag-line "Professional service delivered every time."

If you have a job that you think fits in with what we offer, give us a call! Estimates are always free, and if we can't help with a particular job we might just know another service provider who can!

Q. What do you like most about your job?

A. One of the best parts about this line of work is meeting so many interesting people, and learning about some very cool businesses. Everyday is different, challenging and fun, and that is what is so like-able about this job!

I get asked a lot how my day is going, and my most common response is "Always good! It's a choice, right?"

So let's make it a GREAT day!

Q. What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

A. The question I hear the most often is: "Do you use dawn dish soap for the windows?"

Although there are many companies who do, I do not. There is an on-going preference debate known as the "Soap Wars" on this very topic. I am a believer in the right tool for the job, and dish soap is for.... dishes!

I use professional window cleaning products. The type varies from season to season to account for temperature and humidity differences, but they all deliver high quality, consistent results.

Q. What are the latest developments in your field? Are there any exciting things coming in the next few years or decade that will change your line of business?

A. The cleaning industry on a whole has been moving towards more sustainable processes and chemicals for years now, and it will be exciting to see what improvements are still to come.

One sustainable process Beckon Call is currently doing is using a bike & trailer, a.k.a. Beckon Call à la carte, to service a lot our retail accounts. That's great for the environment and our health, plus the MPG is infinite!

What's on tap for us? Harvesting rain water. Beckon Call hopes in the near future that a high percentage of the water we use to clean with is harvested rain water. It works great for cleaning, which means better results with a little less water taken from the tap.

Q. If you have a complicated pricing system for your service, please give all the details here.

A. If all homes and businesses were the same, our pricing would be simple!

Each window cleaning job is looked at and priced with the following considerations:

• Number of windows
• Style of windows
• Access issues (height, bushes, trees?)
• What's on the windows (paint, tape residue, 15 years of dirt?)

Most jobs are fairly straight forward, and customers have expressed that our pricing is extremely fair. Our estimates are always free, so stop guessing what it might be... give us a call and find out!
