Cleaning glass surfaces: current prices for the window cleaner

If you do not clean the windows yourself, order a window cleaner. For most commercial real estate, this practice is common, private homeowners are following suit. Still the question remains: Which costs arise for the practical service?

These factors are price-determining

  • Regional differences: In metropolitan areas and large cities, prices for window cleaners are generally higher than in rural areas.
  • Accessibility of the glass surfaces: If the window cleaner approaches all glass surfaces well, there are no special costs.
  • Degree of contamination of the windows: Special cleaners and above-average number of working hours can cause higher costs.
  • Special Offers: If you pay attention to cheap bargains and package deals, you can save money.
  • Size of the glass surface: The price per square meter decreases with many suppliers, if the total area exceeds a certain measure.

Where are the costs for the window cleaner?

Most window cleaners charge around 2 to 4 EUR per square meter of cleaned glass surface. Offers in the range between 1 and 2 EUR are rather rare.

Beware of unusually cheap "bargains !: First check whether the respective company is known for its good work. Durable dumping prices can be a signal that something is wrong with the service.

Some providers charge a surcharge when the total area exceeds a certain square footage. For example, a total window area of ​​less than 100 square meters could cost EUR 1 per square meter more.

With cheap package deals, you should pay close attention to the fine print. Which conditions apply to this specific bargain? You may even get 8 cleaned windows for 30 to 40 EUR, if they are on average large.
