Window Cleaning FAQ

How Are My Windows Cleaned?

Our window cleaners use hand-held squeegees and cotton cloths. Each window cleaner will bring all equipment necessary to clean your home so that you can have peace of mind. The products that we use for our window washing services are Joy Soap & Ammonia. For an additional fee, screens & storms are taken down & hand-washed on both sides. Water supply is needed.

How Do You Count My Windows?

Double hung windows count as 1 window. Sliding glass doors & picture windows are counted as 2 windows, per each piece of glass. All other windows are counted as each piece of glass equaling 1 window.

How Often Should I Have Service?

You need to have your windows cleaned twice a year: the first cleaning is an in and out, usually done in the fall, the second is an outside only, usually done 5 to 7 months after the in and out.

Can You Remove Hard Scaling?

Make sure your irrigation system is pointing away from your windows. This is especially true if you have a well water irrigation system. These systems tend to draw mineral rich water from water sources under the earth and spritz it all over your windows, increasing the chance of mineral based water stains. If you are using city water, or some other provider, chances are the water is 'hard', meaning it has a high content of minerals, usually calcium and magnesium. When you've had your house pressure washed, have the windows cleaned on the outside immediately, as in within a few days! Have your windows cleaned at least two times per year on the outside.

When Should I Get My Windows Cleaned?

There really is no bad time to have your windows cleaned. Often times individuals are concerned about having their windows cleaned during the winter months fearing possibility of rain. Rain is not a concern and winter months are as good of a time as any to clean your windows. One of the best times to have them cleaned, regardless of time of year, is when they are dirty!

Do I Need To Be Home For the Service?

Not unless you have scheduled an inside and outside window cleaning service.  We bring our own ladders to the job and ordinarily do not need to enter the house with the exception of an inside-outside window washing package. We do ask that a method of payment is provided before the service, which is not run until after the window washing is complete.

What Methods of Payment Do You Accept?

Payment may be made by cash at the time of service; or a check, MasterCard, Visa, or Discover either before or at the time of service.
