It’s been said that “Time will pass and seasons will come and go.” (Roy Bean) When it comes to window cleaning, it’s essential to act in the present and not let the season pass by without calling in the professionals.
Isn’t Professional Window Cleaning Expensive?
The expense of hiring a professional window cleaning team depends on many factors. It’s also routine home maintenance that if left unchecked, can cause damage that can bust a budget.
What Factors Contribute to Window Cleaning Cost?
Your neighbor across the street may also have a two-story Colonial home built 20 years ago, but when it comes to window cleaning cost, each home is unique. This means looking at the following factors when determining window cleaning cost:
- How many windows does the home have
- What type of windows are in the home
- How easy is it to access each window
- How dirty are the windows
- Type of cleaning requested: exterior, interior, or both
In addition, the cost of window cleaning may increase if you choose to contract for extra services such as cleaning the sills, tracks, screens, skylights, or mirrors. At United Window Cleaning, we offer a full range of services like cleaning chandeliers, coach lights, high ceiling fans, and other hard-to-reach fixtures in and outside of the home.
Is the Number of Windows the Main Factor?
When it comes to window cleaning, sources most often talk about the average number of windows a home has. Across the internet you’ll find sources that state the average home has eight windows. However, that number may not be entirely accurate. It may be closer to an average of 10 to 15 with larger (2,000+ square feet) homes having an average of 25 to 30 windows. What does this mean?
In short, more windows or more panes of glass means a higher cost because there is more for the crew to clean. An hourly rate or a rate based on the size of the home are also major contributing factors to the overall cost.
At United Window Cleaning we have three categories of home based on size: small, medium, and large. A small home typically is a single-story construction, while a medium is two-story, and a large may be two or more levels plus have expansive square footage. You can submit a photo of your home to get an estimate. There are extra charges for storm windows, track cleaning, screens, and other services.
Regular window cleaning can save a homeowner money in the long term. Keeping windows free from grime and dirt helps to reduce etching and scratches that can lead to cracks and breaks. Having a professional clean and check your windows can also alert you to issues before significant damage occurs.
