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.

Allan did a phenomenal job cleaning our windows. They look brand new now and have never been this clean. He thoroughly cleaned each window, screen and window sill. Not only was his work of the highest quality but so was his customer service. I will be recommending Allan to all of my family and friends and will absolutely be using his services moving forward for any and all window cleaning needs.

Starcleaning LLC cleaned all 16 of our windows -- inside and out -- in our four-story town home. The team was very polite, professional, worked efficiently, and did an excellent job. Our windows are spotless, and the price was very reasonable. They were on time and got right to work. I will definitely have them clean our windows regularly.

Star Cleaning was my first Thumbtack hire and it exceeded expectations. They were responsive and professional. I got my thumbtack estimates for the window cleaning job and Star Cleaning was not the cheapest or most expensive but they seemed the most professional. After they actually saw the job (I have an amazing number of windows!) we revised the price and it was still not the most expensive and was very fair. They came right on time and got started immediately. The windows now sparkle! I will definitely hire again.

Windows were washed to perfection--the crew did an excellent job with very difficult and dirty windows. The price was about $120 over what they quoted on Thumbtack, but for a team of 3 to spend 4 hours diligently cleaning the windows to perfection, I thought the price was worth it. My windows were exceptionally large, floor to ceiling, and double paned , so they were admittedly difficult. I would definitely recommend and hire the team again.

I hired the company for full indoor and outside window cleaning. Although the Joseph and Edwin have good customer service and were very responsive to my inquiries and scheduling the appointment, the appointment started 40-45 minutes after the schedule time. It was not made clear during the initial consultation that staff you be using my personal sinks to fill buckets or to dump dirty water in my bathroom sink. The residue of such dirt was left in my bathroom sink. The service was timely (at or around 1 hour) however, staff did not take measures to prevent dirt and water from dripping on floor or window sills. Dirt was left on the sills and not thoroughly cleaned from the window tracks as well as debris on the outside windows. I expressed my dissatisfaction with Edwin and although he attempted to address my concerns he did so with soiled cloths that continued to put dirt on my floor and carpet so I asked that the appointment be finished. I appreciate the nominal discount for the service however, I was not satisfied with the service.
