Basic Window Cleaning

 What is included in my Window Cleaning Service?

  • Basic window cleaning service includes a cleaning of each window, and the wiping down of the sills.

Is track cleaning included in your Basic Window Cleaning Service?

  • Track cleaning is not included in the basic window cleaning service. We offer vinyl track cleaning for an additional charge.

Can you remove paint from windows?

  • Yes we can remove many types of debris from windows including, paint, stucco, silicone, stickers and other construction and remodeling debris. This not covered under the "Basic Window Cleaning Service." There is an additional charge for these services

How often should I have my windows cleaned?

  • Depending on your circumstances window cleaning can be done annually, quarterly, bimonthly, monthly, biweekly or even weekly. Many customers like to have windows cleaned in and out once or twice a year and the exterior of the windows cleaned quarterly or biannual, while some smaller commercial accounts like restaurants need to have windows cleaned each week.

What are the effects of not having my windows cleaned regularly?

  • Many stains that could have been taken care of sooner are now too imbedded into the glass to remove entirely. Sometimes these stains will disappear but only for a price not included in a basic cleaning charge. Different chemicals and extensive attention may do the trick, but perfect restoration cannot always be guaranteed.  Cost wise, a more regular window cleaning routine is more cost effective by far.

How do window cleaners get their prices? 

  • Many window cleaners will bid by how long they feel the job will take, thus more experienced window cleaners may actually charge less! On average window cleaners charge by size and amount of windows or by the square footage of a job, others might combine methods. One must remember that professional window cleaners have many expenses such as insurance, equipment purchase and maintenance, payroll, taxes, travel and vehicular expenses, advertising, office expense etc. While looking "cool" and offering great views, window cleaning is a hard and a somewhat dangerous job, thus a reputable window cleaning company will pay its workers well above the minimum wage

Bad Weather

What happens if it is bad weather during my scheduled appointment? 

  • Working on rope or climbing on ladders during bad weather may be a safety hazard. If it begins to storm during your appointment or before your appointment we may need to reschedule.

How much does rain affect clean windows?

  • Not as much as one may assume since all the dirt that was once on the window is gone, rain drops have nothing to cling to, thus rain has little to no affect on clean windows. We're sure you would agree that the reason that one would want windows serviced in the first place would be because of attached dirt,pollutants,   insect or bird stains, salt water presence in the air, or other longer term moisture presence. It takes time for moisture to affect the clarity of glass.
