Windows are the eyes of your home; they let in natural light, provide views of the outdoors, and can make your home look pristine, inside and out. And just like anything else, they need regular maintenance to remain sparkling clean and clear. 

At Cultivate House Detailing, we want you to enjoy looking at your home from the inside and out. We provide quality care to Colorado Springs residents and are mission-focused to make your experience with us unforgettable.

One question we get asked often is, “How much does window cleaning cost?” 

Without further ado, let’s get started!


Factors That Influence Window Cleaning Costs

In our years of experience, we find that most window cleaning services cost between $150 to $550. How did we get to this number? There are many factors that influence the total price for a window cleaning service, including:

– The number of windows needing to be cleaned

– Is the interior and exterior being cleaned?

– The type of windows

– Accessibility (can only be accessed from outside)

– Location (i.e. 2nd story or roof)

– The height and reach of each window

Let’s take a look at some of these factors in more detail below!

Size and Number of Windows 

Naturally, the bigger your home, the more windows you have, and the more work is involved. Large, floor-to-ceiling windows or bay windows will take more time to clean and thus will cost more than smaller, standard-sized windows.  

Window cleaners count the panes, not the windows. So if you have a double hung window, it’s 2 panes, not just 1. Window cleaning can cost between $6-$10 per pane depending on the size of the window. This is a good rule of thumb to apply for most windows in your home.

Type of Windows

Some windows are more complicated to clean than others. For example, multi-pane windows, leadlight windows, or windows with special coatings might require more time and specialized techniques than traditional soap and squeegee methods. Here are different window types and associated fees:

  • Sliding Glass Doors – costs an average of $6-$10 per pane
  • French Doors – costs an average of $18-$24 per door
  • Tracks and Sills – costs an average of $2-$3 per pane (or included in price)

Condition of the Windows

Heavily soiled windows or those that haven’t been cleaned in a long time will require more effort, as staining can occur. Stained windows are harder to remove grime from as they need a special cleaning solution and more labor to remove stubborn dirt.

Accessibility 

Windows that are hard to reach, such as those on higher floors or behind obstructions, might require special equipment or additional safety precautions, which can increase costs. A high window squeegee cleaner is usually used to reach these higher-up places and may require an additional fee. 

Frequency 

Scheduling regular cleanings might reduce the individual cost of each service because your windows won’t be as dirty from one cleaning to the next. Cleaning windows on a regular basis can also help prevent staining from dirt and grime that might have been left for too long. On the other hand, if you clean your windows regularly, it may only require a quick wipe down with a cloth to remove any dust or buildup. This will save time and money in the long run. 

Different Types of Windows

Different types of windows may require different cleaning techniques and products. Windows with non-standard shapes, such as arched or circular ones may present a challenge in terms of cleaning them effectively. In these instances, it is best to consult a professional window cleaner to ensure that the job is done properly. 

Additional Services: 

Some companies offer extra services like screen, track, or sill cleaning. These services will typically add to the total cost. Screen cleaning is an average of $3.50-$4.50 extra per screen, for example. At Cultivate House Detailing, we provide window screen replacement services for those who need it as well! 

Your Location 

As with many services, prices can vary based on where you live. Urban areas with a higher cost of living might have higher window cleaning rates than rural areas. Here in Colorado Springs, prices will vary, for example, compared to New York City or Utah. Depending on your region, you can expect prices to fluctuate.

Company Reputation

A company may charge more based on their years of experience, expertise, equipment, and customer service! With the best service comes more competitive pricing, unless they are a new business then you you may get the best of both worlds. Best to do your research and get quotes from several companies and ready their reviews.

Wrapping Up: So How Much Do Window Cleanings Cost?

Window cleaning costs can vary widely based on various factors, from the type and number of windows to the frequency of cleaning. It’s essential to understand what affects these costs to budget effectively. With a bit of research and regular maintenance, you can keep your windows sparkling without breaking the bank!
