Window Cleaning Cost & Prices 2023

Are your windows beginning to display that thin layer of film? Do your windows seem to be letting in less natural light these days? If so, it’s probably likely that they are overdue a good clean.

A comprehensive window clean can remove any grime, dirt and pollution that has built up. It also improves the overall impression of your property. 

This article will cover the sorts of costs you can expect to pay as well as other factors which may affect the price.

Factors Affecting the Cost of Window Cleaning Services

These are a few common factors that can affect the prices quoted.

Number of rooms

Window cleaning contractors may quote in different ways. Some may charge by the hour, whilst others can charge by type of building being serviced.

Contractors sometimes quote according to the number of rooms, specifically the number of windows. 

It’s always best to specify the number of rooms when asking for a quotation (thanks Wilson Window Cleaners)

Size and Type of Property

Whilst the number of rooms is important, cleaning jobs on building like flats or large estates with multiple stories will naturally come at a higher price.

Windowsills and Window Frames

Many companies also offer cleaning services of window frames and windowsills. They could potentially assume this as part of the agreed-upon cleaning job.

Confirm the full scope of a job before agreeing on a price quotation.

Internal vs External Cleaning

Expected to double the price if you need both internal and external sides cleaned. Some companies may offer discounts if doing both together.

Non-Standard Window Cleaning

Some properties may need special window cleaning services on non-standard glass surfaces.

Many window cleaning companies can offer cleaning services on non-standard windows such as conservatories, skylights and greenhouses. The prices of these are likely also to be non-standard.

Can You Do It Yourself?

There are a lot of options available for home and business owners looking to keep costs low and go it alone.

Many supermarkets and DIY stores offer affordable window and glass cleaning solution products at affordable prices. A high-end multi-purpose ladder costs on average £100. 

However, we always recommend getting help from a professional window cleaner with experience.

Firstly, the risks of taking on window cleaning yourself can be very high. Window cleaning professionals not only have the experience of climbing and servicing high reach areas, but they have also undergone the relevant safety training. They also have full safety equipment.

Secondly, window cleaning companies are insured against any potential accidents which may occur on the job. For you and your property, this means you can rest assured that any accidental damage to the exterior of your property won’t have to be covered from your own pocket.
