Everything You Need to Know About Window Cleaning Cost

When it comes to window cleaning cost, there are many factors that go into it. This article will cover how different features of your windows can impact the price. For example, if you have a high-rise building with large windows that are difficult to reach then you will likely pay more for their cleaning.

Window washing is one of those services that sometimes seems like it should be free or at least inexpensive because everyone needs them and they’re so necessary for any home’s safety and appearance. But it can get expensive depending on what type of windows you have and where they are in your house. So, here’s everything you need to know about window washing prices!

Windows Types

One of the most important elements that go into a window cleaner’s price is the type of windows you have. There are three types: single-paned, double-pane and triple-pane/triple-track. Here’s a closer look at each type:

  • Single-paned windows are considered outdated and inefficient because they require more cleaning, they can warp more easily, and they don’t hold heat the same way. However, some people still prefer them over double-pane windows because of their increased level of privacy.
  • Double-paned windows are the most common form of window coverings for homes these days. They offer energy savings but cost more to install than single panes do.
  • Triple pane/triple track windows use three layers of glass to decrease your heating costs.

Location Considerations

Another very important element that goes into a window washing price is where the windows are located within your house or property. If any off the windows are higher than three stories, that will typically increase the cost because it takes more effort and time for the window washer to reach them. On top of that, it means you’ll likely need scaffolding at your building in order to complete the job successfully.

Different Window Features

Window washing costs can also fluctuate depending on what type of features your windows have. For example, if you live in a wooded area or an area where there are lots of trees surrounding your house, then having screens can make all the difference in price because they make cleaning much harder due to buildup from tree debris. Windows with screens aren’t typically found in homes but are often seen on businesses where there’s a lot of outdoor activity related to their industry – for example, a produce market or a flower shop.

Another major confounding element is the extent of dirt buildup on your windows. In most cases, dirty windows will cost more because there’s an increased amount of time and effort required to complete the job. Many window cleaners have been in this situation before, but it can be frustrating because you might not want to spend the extra money but at the end of the day you need clean windows!

Window Cleaning Height

If your windows are particularly tall then that will contribute to the overall price as well. If they’re less than three stories high then you likely don’t need scaffolding unless there’s something unusual about your property or structure that makes it difficult for access – for example, you have a tall tree near the window that overhangs onto your roof. In some cases, you can even work out a deal with scaffolding companies to rent their ladders to window washers for certain rates if they’re close by.


As you can see from all this information, there are many factors that go into a window washing prices and it’s not one-size-fits-all. There are different types of windows, different heights, and different features – each one of these contributes to the overall cost because it reduces or increases efficiency and time on site – two things that directly affect pricing.
