If you need interior window or home cleaning, yes.  This allows us to do a walk through.

If you only need exterior windows cleaned, no, but we will need your permission to walk around your property.

For a Basic Window Cleaning, yes.  If you will be away for your cleaning, please let us know in advance. 

We don’t invoice for residential cleanings, so if you won’t be home to pay once the job is completed, payment will need to be secured before the job begins.

Yes, when it’s the best option.

Factors that decide this are:

  • Worker safety
  • Protecting the property
  • Cleaning most effectively

Yes, but as little as possible.

We started out working on up to 40 foot ladders, hand cleaning every window, but that is often not the best way anymore.

We now use water fed poles to clean the exterior windows as it allows the technician to be on stable ground and drastically reduces the chances of damage occuring on your property.

When a ladder is the only way to access a window, we use safe practices and careful thought to make sure no accident occurs.

Generally, no because every house is different.

Even two properties which were built identical can have very different challenges due to:

  • Gardens
  • Trees
  • Ornaments
  • Window coverings
  • Furniture
  • Level of soiling

We want to give fair pricing to everyone, so we price jobs based on the individual property.

We need to access your windows to clean them, so if you believe we won’t be able to, please move any furniture blocking them.

If you’re unsure, email (hello@focuscleaners.com) or text (403-809-3724) a photo and we’ll let you know.

Our estimate does not include moving items our of our way and back to clean the windows.

Please move any ornaments or decorations on your window sills or in front of your windows to allow us access.

If we need to move items to access the windows, a surcharge will apply.
