Frequently Asked Questions

window cleaningFrequently Asked Questions

  •  How often should I have my windows cleaned?
    • Most residential properties should be done at least twice a year, perhaps more often in dustier, windier climates.
    • Commercial properties should be cleaned at least monthly, but circumstances may require more frequent window cleaning. Restaurants should be done inside and out at least every 2 weeks, while retail and healthcare should be done at least every 4 weeks. Office building windows may be cleaned less often, but busy streets, weather, and sappy or high-pollen trees can contribute to a more frequent schedule of cleaning.
  • What will it cost me?
    • Residential: The average 1500 square foot home can expect to cost about $70 and up, depending on each individual case. Obviously, this is a rough idea and a free on-site estimate should be scheduled. No quotes are offered over the phone unless we know your site well.
    • Commercial: This can very greatly, and you are strongly advised to get a quote for your business. Long-term agreements can significantly lower your costs. Be sure and ask.
  • Do you use anything that would harm the environment?
    • No. The main ingredient in window cleaning is water, followed by good old fashioned elbow grease. But, a small amount of environmentally safe, biodegradable detergent is used in the solution to make sure your windows are spotless.
    • For offices, we will use most common cleaning agents found available in many stores, with some exception. We make an effort to choose cleaning agents that are not harmful to the environment, yet clean and disinfect surfaces. That said, if a particular cleaner bothers you or your employees, please let us know so we can be sure to use an alternative.
  • Do I need to be home during a residential window cleaning?
    • For your first cleaning, we prefer you are home. It’s all part of getting to know you and your home best, and answering any questions. It also would help to move any furniture away from interior glass to facilitate cleaning.
  • What if it rains?
    • If we happen to get rain within 24 hours of your cleaning, we are happy to touch up any windows at your request.
  • What forms of payment do you accept?
    • We accept cash, checks, and most major credit cards. Payment is due at time of service.
