What Impacts the Cost of Window Cleaning?

Clean windows are one of the first things people look at when entering a home or office. Your high-rise condo is impressive and expensive, but your dirty windows bring down the curb appeal. If you’re considering buying new windows, it’s time to look at the cost of window cleaning.

While the price of window cleaning can vary depending on several factors, such as frequency and where you live, it’s possible to get a general idea of what factors impact window-cleaning costs.

Important Window Cleaning Cost Considerations


How often you clean your windows is a key factor in determining their cost. Whether you clean your windows yourself or hire a professional to do it for you, most cleaning companies charge by the number of square feet that need to be cleaned and by the time the job takes, so frequent cleanings will impact both costs (Square feet x price per square foot).

Type of Windows

Windows come in various styles. Certain sliding glass doors and windows are more difficult to clean than others, so some may cost more. For example, cleaning a window with space between the panes is a bit more challenging than cleaning one without. When you talk to your window-cleaning company about their pricing structure, ask if there is any additional cost for cleaning windows with panes or other special features.

Season & Weather Temperatures

The cleaning needs of each season will affect the cost. For instance, you may need to clean your windows earlier in the spring to eliminate pollen and other debris that settles on your windows and can cause a build-up of “the stuff” in the spring and summer months.

Local weather and temperature can also impact the cost of cleaning your windows. Windy days can cause the need for extra time, equipment and manpower. Heat and cold may also contribute to more difficult cleaning jobs. If you live in a colder climate, your windows will probably need to be cleaned more frequently during the winter because snow and ice can obscure them.

On the other end of the spectrum, you may want to clean your windows more often in the summer, so you’re able to enjoy nice views without obstructed views of outside elements (overgrown bushes, for example).

Number of Windows

Large windows span many square feet and can be expensive because they require more work and time. However, cleaning multiple windows may also require more time and manpower, but it will also help save on the cost of a contractor or cleaning company because they can cover more square feet in less time.

Window Material

The type of window material you have may also affect the cost if it’s a different material that needs a specific cleaning method. For example, if you have a vinyl window, you’ll need to use “the chemical”, but if the vinyl is stained by the stain on the wall or something else, you’ll probably want to use more of it.

Window Location & Type – Different places in your home or office will require different cleaning methods and tools. For example, cleaning windows on the ground floor is easier than in an upstairs bedroom. Plus, certain window types and locations require additional time and labour costs. For example, cleaning your awning windows will require extra time (depending on their height) to get the right water pressure to spray water inside.

Window cleaning can be either a pleasant experience or a miserable one. After reading this article, you should have a general idea of what determines the cost of window cleaning. It’s important to know what your windows are made of and where they are located in your home, so you’ll know what cleaning process needs to be used. If you are unsure of what exactly is included in your window-cleaning cost, take some time to ask your prospective company or company representative questions. To get a general idea of window-cleaning pricing, search online for “window cleaning cost” in the city you live in and see the consensus for pricing. That should give you an idea of the prices local window cleaning companies offer and help you decide what is reasonable for your budget.
