How Much Does Window Cleaning Cost?

Window cleaning pricing can vary depending on many factors. Big buildings and offices are usually charged based on square footage. For residential jobs, most window cleaners charge pane by pane or by number of windows.  A smaller home is usually charged a flat rate per window because there typically aren’t enough windows to charge pane-by-pane. If the home is medium-sized, many cleaners will charge pane by pane, anywhere from $2-$8 for each one or more for bigger windows. In large homes where counting pane by pane is too time consuming or impractical, it’s not uncommon to charge an hourly rate. On average, a window cleaning cost per hour ranges from $40-$75. 

Factors That Determine the Cost of A Window Cleaning

No matter how much research you do, there are specific factors that impact the cost of your window cleaning service. Here some common factors that will influence your custom window cleaning price list. 

Types of Windows

You can categorize the windows on a house based on their design: simple and complex. The type of window can help determine your window cleaning price list. Windows with a complex design will be harder to clean and will take longer, while simple windows are not as labor-intensive. 

Windows with Simple Designs

Large windows with little to no panes are what you see on most commercial buildings and some homes. Due to their design, these types of windows are typically easier and less expensive to clean. 

Some examples of these types of windows include:

  • Picture windows 
  • Single or double-hung windows
  • Casement
  • Bay

Windows with Complex Designs

Windows with complex designs are more common in residential areas or on historic buildings. Due to their design, these types of windows are harder to clean. A few examples of windows with a complex design include:

  • Bow
  • Architectural shapes
  • Transom

Windows that are different architectural shapes may come in a variety of sizes, but they have numerous or oddly shaped panes.

Other Factors 

Once you know what the basic window cleaning plan includes, it is time to think about add-ons. As Additional costs may be tacked on with sills, frames, and screens if they are not included in the basic plan. Sliding glass doors or large windows may also entail an additional charge as the panes of glass are larger than the average window.

Plus, many companies have a practice of charging a certain rate for first and second floor windows, but if your house has more floors, there may be an extra charge. The reason is because they may need ladders and other special equipment. Knowing what the add-ons are will help you get a good idea of how much the whole project should cost.
