How To Save Money, And Still Have Your Windows Cleaned

Are you looking to have your windows professionally cleaned, but don’t want to spend a lot of money? You could do it yourself, and save the money however there are several reasons that you would be better off hiring a professional. Most windows especially high windows require a ladder to clean the outside windows, and at times even the inside windows. If you don’t have a ladder or aren’t comfortable working on ladders it is best to leave it to the professionals. Paying to have your windows cleaned professionally in most cases will be cheaper than a trip to the emergency room, or the cost of replacing a window if you accidentally put the ladder through one of them. Unless you already own all of the tools needed to clean your windows, even the cost of just the basic tools can add up fast. Just a squeegee ($20), scrubber ($20), scrapper ($10), cleaning solution ($20), and rags ($10) will on average cost you around $80. Plus, once you gather all of the basic tools it will probably take you 2 to 3 times longer to clean your own windows than for a professional who cleans windows every day. So, unless you are comfortable on a ladder, don’t mind spending your whole day cleaning your windows and have great insurance just go ahead and hire a professional.

There are two times a year that when you can do just that. The price of window cleaning, just like anything else is effected by supply and demand. In the busy months which are typically April – June (Spring) and September – November (Fall) prices are higher, but during those slower times early Spring and after July 4th until the kids start to go back to school in late August prices tend to be lower. If you want to save anywhere for $50 – $200 depending on the size of your home and total number of windows these are the best times to have have your windows cleaned.

Not all companies lower their prices during these slow periods, but most do. Whether it’s a one man operation who needs to pay his bills or a large company who needs to keep their employees working. When selecting a company just make sure they have at minimum general liability insurance just in case they damage any of your property. A professional window cleaner should have no problem producing this documentation for you. For your own protection it’s probably a good idea to make sure they have a workman’s compensation policy as well, but that is up to you. If you aren’t sure where to start just ask your family, friends or neighbors who they use. If that doesn’t help you can always post in local groups on Facebook for recommendations. You can always read through online reviews as well until you find a company with a good reputation. If you still aren’t sure ask the company to provide you with a few references.
