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.

Gonzalo and his team arrived on time, worked efficiently, and did a beautiful job cleaning a houseful of windows inside and out. When I counted my windows to request a quote, I forgot a few, including two skylights. No problem. The extra work was incorporated smoothly and the corresponding charge was reasonable. I will call Star next time I need window-cleaning services.

I cannot recommend between cleaners highly enough! They cleaned 25+ windows inside and out, scraped off stuck on debris with a razor outside, even the basement windows. They did an incredible job, they were also the best bid from multiple providers. Two thumbs up! I will be having them come back for indoor cleaning in the future. :)

I was very pleased with the work of Starcleaning. Personnel arrived on time and completed cleaning my gutters and windows in 2 hours. Personnel were courteous and thorough in their work. They were also considerate of property using care to not track in dirt and tomwork around furniture and draperies. I would highly recommend them. I plan to use them again.

Israel was very good at communicating with me and setting a date and time for the job. He gave me a very reasonable quote and stuck to it when the job was finished. Israel and his team worked efficiently and paid great attention to detail. They were professional, quiet and very neat. Our windows are spotless now and the sun shining in makes the whole house brighter! We really appreciate the effort and hard work. I fully recommend Bright View Cleaning, and will use them for any upcoming projects.
