For window cleaning, the question we get most often is: what’s a pane?

This is fairly important, since it’s the main factor in our pricing! Fortunately, counting panes is pretty simple. Have a look at the image below:

A diagram showing a window separated into multiple panes.

There are 7 panes in the photo above.

In words, a window pane is a piece of glass separated by a divider. If you were to physically touch the glass and run your hand over it, every time you have to lift up your hand from the glass to touch the next piece it is considered a separate pane.

For the best possible clean, we work one pane at a time. We scrub down each pane individually, making sure we get deep in the corners, and squeegee the glass. From there, we use a towel to detail all the edges of the glass and frame.  Almost as much time is spent cleaning a small pane as a large one because of detailing. It takes time and effort, but the resulting gleam is more than worth it!
