  1. How much does it cost?
       Every job is different.  There are many variables: type of window, size of window, number of windows, age of windows, height above ground, landscaping, etc.  Plus, each customer has a different budget and different expectations about exactly what the job should entail.  We work closely with every customer to achieve the best balance.  We give free estimates.  Basic job site information can be taken over the telephone or through this web site.  A visit is then scheduled.  You do not generally have to be home.  We will leave a written estimate at your door or call you later.

  2. Are you insured?
       Yes, we are!  That is a VERY good question.  You should know the levels of insurance for any contractor you allow in and around your home or business.  We will be happy to have our agent send you a "Certificate of Insurance" showing our levels.  Or, if you prefer, you can call Dave Nixon or any of the other helpful people at Nixon Insurance Agency directly (309-691-1300 or
www.NixonAgency.com). They will be glad to provide you with a “Certificate Of Insurance” for us. That is the only legitimate way to get proof of insurance, directly from the insuring agency.  Furthermore, in order to feel more comfortable about your choice of any contractor, we encourage you to contact a local consumer reporting organization like the Better Business Bureau (309-688-5124 or www.BBB.org).

  3. How soon can you clean my windows?
       In order to provide high quality service to all of our customers, we prefer at least two to three weeks advance notice.

  4. Do you clean the insides of the windows?
       We will clean whatever you want.  But, for the best results, all sides should be cleaned at the same time.  All windows have an in-side and an out-side.  Many, like windows with storms or some newer insulating glass units that have removable panes, will also have more sides in-between.

  5. How long will it take?
       That depends on the work involved.  After estimating the work, we can give you a good idea of the time it will take.

  6. Do I need to be home while services are performed?
       That is up to you.  Many of our customers are not home during the cleaning, even during inside work.  Some make private arrangements ahead of time (instructions, keys, codes, etc.).

  7. What happens if it rains, or looks like rain, at the scheduled time?
       It is not safe for us to work in the rain.  We may complete interior work while waiting for the rain to stop and/or postpone as necessary.  Re-scheduling is, of course, dependent on previously scheduled work.

  8. When is the payment due?
       Most customers pay upon completion or send their payment soon after the work is completed, using their job ticket as an invoice.  These are the preferred methods.  Others are billed.

  9. Do I need to move my furniture, curtains, etc.?
       No, you do not have to.  We will move most things, for an additional charge.  We can work around heavy items.  However, most of our customers prefer to move their own valuable, antique, or hard-to-clean items.  Moving items is not included in our estimates unless noted.

10. How do you clean the windows?
       Most people clean their windows with some kind of spray-and-towel variation.  This only moves the dirt around on the window and leaves streaks that can be very frustrating to remove.  We use professional solutions, and tools, designed to suspend the dirt in the solution and remove the solution from the window.  You will be surprised at how clean your windows will be!
