**Please note that screens with heavy debris or pollen can be machine washed. This is an additional cost starting at an additional $3.00 per screen.**

What should I do to prepare for my appointment?

For interior/exterior window cleaning we ask that you make sure that all items such as plants, picture frames, and knick-knacks are removed from window sills and that all windows are accessible prior to our crews arrival. We can work around blinds & curtains. We will need access to the interior of your home for this service and our office staff will arrange this with you upon booking. 


For exterior-only window cleaning, we ask that your windows are closed, screens are removed or unlocked and that your exterior water spigot is on. You do not have to be home for this service.

Can you remove paint from windows?

Paint, stucco, silicone, stickers and other construction and remodeling debris can be removed effectively and efficiently from windows.  Removal of such debris is not included with our regular window cleaning service and an additional fee would be incurred. 


What happens if it is raining or forecasted to rain during my scheduled appointment?

It is our policy to keep the scheduled appointment to clean the interior windows and then we can re-schedule the exteriors within a timely manner if it's heavily raining or the safety of our crew is of concern. Light and even moderate rain will not affect the quality of your cleaning. If you choose to cancel or reschedule your appointment, it will be at our current booking timeframe.


How often should I have my windows cleaned?

As with most things, that depends on your circumstances and personal preferences. Many residential customers like to have their windows cleaned once or twice a year.  For our commercial accounts some find a monthly cleaning or a once-a-year cleaning benefits them the most. We can give you professional recommendations to find out the best fit for your specific needs.


My windows look foggy. Will the fog go away after the windows are cleaned?

Foggy windows are often a result of a damaged or defective double-pane window.  This will not not clean up. The fog appears between the panes of glass and comes from a broken seal. Foggy windows would need to be replaced by the manufacturer or a local window installation company.

Gutter Cleaning


What is included with a gutter cleaning?

We hand-clean the inside of the gutters removing debris, we then check and clean the downspouts. If they are not functioning properly we remediate the clog by taking apart the downspout and removing debris. The cleaning of the exterior of your gutter is NOT included in a gutter cleaning.

Do you clear off the roof of debris?

In situations where we can safely remove debris, branches or leaves from your roof we will do so as we are able and for a separate charge. The safety of our crew is of our utmost concern and this is done on a case-by-case basis and is NOT included in your gutter cleaning price. 

Gutter Guard Installation & Cleaning


What are Leaf Relief gutter guards?  

Leaf Relief gutter guards are an aluminum porous guard that keeps debris out of the gutter.  They are extremely effective and affordable solution to clients who have large amounts of leaves. They have a 40-year warrantee and our technicians can verify if it is a good fit for your home & its surroundings.

A Note.

As with anything in life, there are no guarantees. We will not sell our clients anything without full disclosure. Gutter guards are not maintenance-free product. There will be times when you will need to have the tops of your guards brushed or blown off due to leaves or debris covering the tops of your guards. On average this is done every 3-5 years.


I have gutter guards but my gutters are still clogged or I have a concern that they might be, what do you recommend?

It happens! As mentioned above, gutter guards are not a maintenance-free product. If your gutter guards are clogged or water is running over them, based on the type of guard you have we can sometimes brush the guards off or flush them. We also can remove the guard, clean out the gutter, and then reinstall the guard.
