How long will it take you to clean my windows?
That all depends on the size of the house or building. Usually we can have the windows cleaned on a house within 4 to 6 hours. For a business, it can take anywhere from 30 minutes to several days depending on the size of the business. Also, the type of windows you have factors into how long it takes us. If you have a lot of "french" windows (small windows that are usually just a few inches wide and tall) or a lot of "storm" windows (double paned windows that can be taken apart) then it will probably take us longer.
What is involved in cleaning the windows?
We start by removing all screens and hand washing both sides with a soft bristle brush using biodegradable soap and set the screens aside to dry.
Next, we vacuum the window tracks and wipe down the window sills and start with the inside cleaning of the windows.
We also begin cleaning the outside of your windows, using a soft strip washer and a very concentrated window washing solution. The solution we use will not only make your windows All Bright & Clear, it will also last longer than traditional methods.
We then use a scraper to get off paint over spray, bug marks, specs, etc.
After thoroughly wetting the window with our strip washer and solution, we squeegee the water off and towel dry around the edges where water collects.
It's now time to put all of the clean screens back in place.
To finish up, we will walk around your home to double check the windows and put all of your furniture back where it was.
Do I need to worry about my floors?
We want to offer you complete peace of mind. That is why we either take our shoes off at the door or we put covers over our shoes. You won't have to worry about a thing. We'll even lay a towel down if there is any chance that your carpets could get dirty.
Do I need to be home during the Window Cleaning Service?
You do need to be present while we are inside your home cleaning the interior of the windows. However, after we finish the interior, we can have your bill ready so you may leave as we continue to work on the exterior of your home.
Do I need to do anything to prepare?
You don't have to do a thing, other than relax. We are more than happy to move items from the windows and replace them and the service is always included at no extra charge. If you are particularly worried about something getting broken, then for your peace of mind we ask that you move it before we come out. We are very careful with your things. We know you want a quality window cleaning, not damaged goods.
How much will it cost to have my windows cleaned?
Again this varies depending on house size and window type as well as a few other variables. If you would like us to come out and give you an estimate we can do that. You can also look at the prices
page to get a general idea of what it could cost for a professional window cleaning.
How often should I get them done?
You might be surprised to find out that a professional window cleaning lasts a long time. When done well, the windows have no dirt left on them for other new dirt to “drift” upon. Whatever is left behind and is barely visible will become more visible as time goes by and other dirt collects on top of it. Because we use a professional, streak free solution and squeegee the dirty water off, we leave nothing visible behind. That’s because soaping down the whole window creates a suspension, a liquid film made up of the dirt and soapy water together. Then, we scrape off the whole thing with a crisp rubber squeegee blade. People who clean their windows with Windex and paper towels, or something like that, simply create a paste and polish the windows with it. With this method, you can only be sure of picking up some of the dirt. Almost immediately, new dust and pollen find old dirt to bond with as it blows by. These jobs are hard work and don’t last as long as jobs cleaned with a good squeegee. When I’ve called customers back after 3-6 months, they usually tell me, “They still look great! Call me later!” Since a good job lasts so long, it really doesn’t matter when you get it done. A day’s rain is not going to replace what took 6 months to accumulate. With that said, 90% of my residential customers are on a 6 month scheduled cleaning and most commercial customers have it done once a month.
Can I cancel a cleaning?
You sure can. Things always come up and we understand that. In fact we do not charge any cancellation fees.
What happens if it's raining?
We will still work if it's a light mist (that won't affect how clean your windows will look). If it's pouring down rain we will call you to let you know when you can be rescheduled. If you need the windows cleaned sooner than your reschedule date, let us know and we will try to accommodate you. Also, we are happy to do just the inside windows if you like and come back for the outside. We also have a 7 day rain guarantee. If it rains at your home within 7 days of your service, just call us and we are happy to touch up the affected windows at no extra cost.
What form of payment do you accept?
We accept checks, cash, Visa, Mastercard, Discover, American Express and PayPal. For some businesses we can even accept Value Card Alliance
