Window cleaning can seem like a luxury that you consider only once your streaky glass situation gets out of hand. Fortunately, hiring window cleaning services is more affordable than you might think, meaning your foggy and grimy windows can be a thing of the past.
Here's everything you need to know about window cleaning services, to help you decide whether to hire one or go the DIY route.
Window cleaners work on your exterior and interior windows and glass surfaces to tackle the dirt, dust and grime that's accumulated. These service providers are kitted out with the professional tools needed to effectively clear up your windows, especially those hard to reach places, and the right combination of cleaning solution to meet your cleaning needs.
Window cleaning services typically include:
Additionally, you can usually request a deep cleaning of window frames, sills, cracks and door cleaning including tracks and rails.
There are several services that can connect you to window cleaners, especially online. Oneflare and Hipages are examples of marketplaces that connect customers and businesses using a quote system. It's free to request quotes and you can read verified reviews of each business to help you decide on the best fit.
As a guide, you can expect to pay approximately $20 per window or an average of $150-$220 in total for window cleaning. However, there are several factors that can impact the price of your window cleaning. These include:
Keep in mind that some window cleaners will charge you by the hour, while others bill by the number of window panes.
The best way to compare is to arrange for multiple quotes through online marketplaces such as Oneflare and Hipages. You should look for credible and verified reviews and get a feel for the window cleaners you'd like to work with.
Window cleaners can provide you with a rough estimate over the phone or online but for the most accurate price, consider an at-home inspection. Alternatively, take photos of your home to give your cleaners a better idea of the work involved.
Once you've scheduled your window cleaning appointment, there are several things you can do to make things go more smoothly on the day.
This depends on the size and complexity of your property. Generally speaking, a three or four bedroom single story home can take around three hours to clean. You can expect a quote for both time and price before you commit to the work.
For exterior-only window cleaning, you don't necessarily need to be at home but you will need to make sure the cleaners have easy access to your property.
If you've organised an interior window cleaning, then you will need to arrange someone to let them in but are not required to be at home for the full clean.
While a same-day window clean is possible, you will need to contact window cleaners directly compared to arranging quotes online. You'll also have limited options and could potentially pay a higher price for a rushed service.
How often should I get my windows cleaned?
You should request window cleaning services at least annually with twice-annual cleaning the most effective at making sure mineral deposits on the glass can be removed. You should consider a monthly clean for your external windows if you live near salt water, as salt can stain glass easily and possibly become permanently embedded.
Do I need to provide the cleaning supplies?
No, the vast majority of window cleaning services will bring all the cleaning supplies and equipment needed to complete the job.
Will the cleaning products be dangerous to my pets or plants?
Some products have chemicals that may be strong but safe to use in the right hands. Discuss your needs when requesting a quote as you can ask for environmentally friendly products and even chemical-free cleans.
Whether you own a domestic or commercial property, keeping up with maintenance should be a priority.

finder.com.au has access to track details from the product issuers listed on our sites. Although we provide information on the products offered by a wide range of issuers, we don't cover every available product or service.
Please note that the information published on our site should not be construed as personal advice and does not consider your personal needs and circumstances. While our site will provide you with factual information and general advice to help you make better decisions, it isn't a substitute for professional advice. You should consider whether the products or services featured on our site are appropriate for your needs. If you're unsure about anything, seek professional advice before you apply for any product or commit to any plan.
Products marked as 'Promoted' or 'Advertisement' are prominently displayed either as a result of a commercial advertising arrangement or to highlight a particular product, provider or feature. Finder may receive remuneration from the Provider if you click on the related link, purchase or enquire about the product.

When products are grouped in a table or list, the order in which they are initially sorted may be influenced by a range of factors including price, fees and discounts; commercial partnerships; product features; and brand popularity. We provide tools so you can sort and filter these lists to highlight features that matter to you.
We try to take an open and transparent approach and provide a broad-based comparison service. However, you should be aware that while we are an independently owned service, our comparison service does not include all providers or all products available in the market.
Some product issuers may provide products or offer services through multiple brands, associated companies or different labelling arrangements. This can make it difficult for consumers to compare alternatives or identify the companies behind the products. However, we aim to provide information to enable consumers to understand these issues.
