Window Cleaning Cost
If you’re looking for a new solution for cleaning your windows and want them looking sparkling and crisp again, then hiring a window cleaning service may be in the cards. Cleaning windows isn’t a lot of fun for most people, but is hiring a team of professionals affordable? How much does window cleaning cost?
There are a few factors to consider when it comes to the cost of hiring window cleaners, and here, we’re going to clarify some of the specifics.
Commercial or Residential Window Cleaning
There is a difference in the cost of commercial and residential window cleaning. While commercial jobs are generally on a set schedule where we return on a regular basis, residential window cleaning jobs happen far less frequently.
First, we’re going to talk about the cost of commercial window cleaning.
Commercial Window Cleaning Cost
Average Per Pane: $3.00-$10.00
- cheaper to clean just the outside, and more expensive for the inside and the outside
Average Per Hour: $30-60/hr
- Each company will have a different rate at which they charge.
Average Per Window: $5.00-$15.00
- Some windows will have more panes than others.
Additional Per Window Charges:
- Paint Removal: $3-$6
- Window Sills: $0.50-$2.50
- Higher Than 2nd Floor: $2-$5
- Screen Cleaning: $2.00-$8.00
The average price for commercial window cleaning services is between $5.00 and $15.00. This of course is based on the size of the window, the cleaning products requested, and the difficulty of reaching the window.
Additionally, there may be other cleaning tasks that need to take place such as paint removal, or screen cleaning. Any additional service you need for your commercial windows will add a little to the cost.
One of the biggest factors for the increase in the price of commercial window cleaning is the difficulty of the job. If our team needs to repel down the side of a building, or your windows are in places that are more difficult to reach, then it will take more time for us to do the job and it will increase the cost.
If you want the outside of the windows cleaned, but you’re fine with doing the inside, then it will reduce the cost significantly as we do not have to gain access to the building. However, if you want us to take on both sides, then the cost will reflect the additional labour and materials.
In terms of potential discounts, it is sometimes possible to have a reduced price per window for larger jobs, or if your business is going to require repeat service and you want to agree to a longer-term contract. Give us a call to find out more about our prices for longer contracts and bulk pricing.
Residential Window Cleaning Cost
The cost of residential window cleaning services is very similar to commercial windows. The average cost per residential windowpane is also between $5.00 and $15.00. This again is due to accessibility, whether it is an interior and exterior job, and the types of windows your home has.
Different types of windows are priced accordingly. For example, your home may have a wide variety of windows such as skylights, french windows, and doors, sliding doors, bay windows, or glass railings on a patio. All of which carry a different cost.
On average, cleaning all windows and glass for a 3000sq foot home costs between $200 and $400. That will depend on the factors listed above.
Types of Residential Window Cleaning Services:
- glass railings
- french windows
- picture windows
- bay windows
- accordion windows
- sliding doors and windows
- screened windows
- pot windows
We also offer apartment and condo window cleaning services. No matter what type of window washing job you need doing, we are able and ready to take it on.
If you’re curious about a specific type of window, or a unique window cleaning related situation you need dealing with, please reach out and we’ll be happy to talk about your options.
Sometimes, we get a call to clean screens. We definitely take on screen cleaning jobs, but we will generally stay away from damaged or broken screens as they are likely to become more damaged during the cleaning process.
The cost of screen cleaning falls between $2.00 and $8.00 depending on the type of screen and the size of it.
It is important to clean your screens every once in a while to help them maintain structure, strength, and original beauty. Most of the time, if you need to clean your windows, your screens can be cleaned every second time or so.
