Please find the answers to many common questions below, and feel free to ask us anything you don’t see here.
Are quotes free?
Yes, call today to schedule your free quote. Some companies give “estimates,” but in most situations we know exactly what is required in a given situation and how long it will take, which is why we call our proposals “quotes.”
Are you insured?
Prestissimo Window Cleaning Co. is fully insured and is happy to provide certificates of insurance to all prospective clients.
Do you use hazardous chemicals?
Prestissimo is a stalwart steward to our environment. We use only safe, biodegradable, non-aromatic surfactants for general window cleaning and specialty services such as hard-water stain removal. Additionally, we use fuel efficient vehicles whenever possible, including our custom bicycle trailer!
Do you clean inside windows too?
Absolutely. We are equipped for virtually any outdoor or indoor cleaning situation. Our artisan window cleaners use drop-cloths and shoe covers to ensure carpet and other surfaces remain clean during the service visit.
Can you clean windows in the rain?
Technically speaking, cleaning windows in the rain is in no way inferior to cleaning in the clear sunshine, in some ways it is actually better. In the case of storm windows a clear day should be sought to ensure the total drying between windows. Prestissimo respects customers who wish to have their cleaning done on a clear day.
Can you remove paint from my windows? Water stains?
Paint, water stains, and virtually anything else can be removed for an extra fee on top of the standard mop/squeegee/towel service. These are advanced processes that require razor scrapers, metallic wool, and sometimes chemicals such as mild acids or acetone. A waiver must be signed prior to service that protects Prestissimo against responsibility for any potential damage as many windows are not manufactured to stand up to these processes. We will do everything we can to examine whether or not your windows are able to withstand these processes prior to applying them.
How much does a window cleaning cost?
This is dependent on the style and the amount of windows, we do not give quotes based on the square footage of the home. If you would like to expedite the quote process, feel free to send photos of your residence to our number.
How much does a gutter cleaning cost?
This is dependent on the height and linear footage of the gutter. We do not give quotes based on the square footage of the home. We can clean gutters with attached gutter guards as long as they are removable for a different fee.
Do you repair gutters?
We are able to do minor gutter repair work if requested by the customer.
Do you do post-construction work?
We are no longer taking on post-construction work.
Do you do roofing work?
We do not do roofing work.
Do you do power washing work?
We do not perform power washing work ourselves but we recommend the services of "Always Cleaning, LLC." and/or "Green Arrow Inc." for your power washing needs.
Do you clean underground gutter drainage systems?
We do not clean underground gutter drainage systems.
Do you install gutter guard?
Gutter guard will increase the potential for ice damming and water damage. Gutter cleaning is relatively inexpensive in comparison, we recommend having someone up on your roof on a regular basis to make sure there's no obvious problems with the roof, chimney, etc. We often see the beginnings of problems and are able to alert the homeowner. We do clean out gutters with guards installed.
What forms of payment do you accept?
We accept cash, check & card. Our most preferred means of receiving payment is via carrier pigeon if possible.
