Among our satisfied clientele we have Marriot Hotels, Polo Ralph Lauren and Starbucks as well as esteemed individuals like former Mayor Gavin Newsom.

Are you insured?

Yes, we carry liability, Workers’ Compensation, and professional liability policies, and our crews are also bonded.

How often should I clean my windows?
We highly recommend that you clean your windows a minimum of once a year to prevent glass degradation and to maintain your windows' luster.

What is Glass Degradation?
Over time, glass may become infused with contaminates such as oxidization, hard minerals, acid rain and overspray (paint, caulking, etc.).

Since glass is porous, these pollutants settle into the surfaces' grooves and valleys. In order to prevent permanent damage, one needs to clean the glass regularly.

Can you remove paint/varnish from my windows?
Yes we can! We have a process by which we can safely remove material, such as paint, varnish, caulk, concrete, stucco, stickers, and sheet rock from windows. This does take longer and is not included in the normal estimate; This would be considered a post-construction cleaning.

How long does it take?

Depending on services ordered, appointments may last anywhere from 1 hour to all day, or longer. When making your appointment, you can ask for an approximation of the appointment length.

How much will it cost?
This is determined on a case by case basis. Cost is generally calculated by services rendered and length of time. We offer a free, no obligation, estimate before each job. Fill out the Free Estimate form or call or e-mail us for more information.

Can I make an appointment on-line or via e-mail?
For the most up to date appointment availability, you should make all appointments over the phone. However, feel free to contact us through e-mail, as well. Check the Contacts link for more information.

Do you have weekend appointments available?
We do not regularly schedule window cleaning appointments on weekends. However, if there are very special circumstances, we occasionally schedule jobs on Saturdays. Give us a call so that we can discuss your individual situation.

IIs it possible for you to clean windows that appear foggy?
If the fog lies in between two separate window panes, then we would not be able to clean it; the seal may be broken. Contact your window manufacturer and check if your windows still have a valid warranty.

Is it necessary for me to be at home during the window cleaning?
If you wish to be home during the window cleaning, we're happy to schedule an appointment which suits your schedule. However, it is not always necessary for you to be home for the entire appointment. We can start on the interior window cleaning and you can lock up your home and leave while we continue on the exterior, as long as your screens pop out. In cases of vacancies, your presence is optional but not necessary, as long as access is provided.

Do you supply your own equipment?
Yes, we provide our own supplies and equipment.

What happens if it is raining the day we have our job scheduled?
Our window cleaners do not clean windows in the rain due to safety concerns. If it is raining the morning of your appointment, we will notify you to let you know that the job has been cancelled that day, and we can reschedule your appointment to another available day and time. Please allow our professionals, with 13 years experience in the industry – to make the determination about cancellation.

Will you call me to remind me that I need my windows cleaned?
If you would like to be put on a regular schedule for service or a reminder schedule list, please call or e-mail the office. We normally call annually to schedule the minimum maintenance cleaning.

Do you make a lot of noise?
Certain services, such as pressure washing, may make a lot of noise while other services, such as window cleaning, make very little noise. If you are trying to make the appointment around a nap schedule or other noise sensitive times, please let us know. We may be able to complete that portion of the project before or after the nap time starts.

Glass is in fact a kind of stone -- a permeable substance which calls for considerable maintenance to preserve its shine and protective features.

In absence of regular cleaning glass frequently becomes stained. Stains when left unattended may lead to corrosion (mineralization), ultimately necessitating expensive reinstatement and often total replacement.

Most professionals recommend maintenance cleaning minimum once in a year.

We have been providing pressure washing and window cleaning solutions to the SF Bay Area since 1993.

Our staff is screened and trained with many years experience in the Bay Area; References available upon request.

In order to clean glass, our experienced window cleaners utilize only squeegees and specific tools. So, you can completely be free from streaky appearances caused by spray chemicals and paper towels.

For glass cleaning, we solely use Eco-friendly soap which protects our environment as well as protecting your exterior plants, flowers, trees and landscaping. Greenforce purchases carbon credits to offset our fleet gas usage.

In case your windows need added attention like paint removal or post manufacture polishing, kindly bring the same to the notice of our estimators.

As our service demand is high, we would suggest you to schedule a couple of weeks in advance.

Glass is actually a type of stone -- a porous substance that requires substantial maintenance to keep its sparkle and its protective qualities.

Glass that is not regularly cleaned can often become stained. Staining left untreated can turn to corrosion (mineralization) and may require costly restoration or in many cases complete glass replacement.

Most experts recommend at least annual maintenance cleaning.

GUTTER CLEANING
Cleaning your gutters is one of the most important things you can do to maintain the beauty and value of your property. When gutters are full of leaves and debris they become heavy and get pulled off pitch. This can result in damage to the fascia and soffit areas. As water overflows, it leaks behind the gutter and can travel into your property.

Greenforce offers commercial and residential gutter cleaning.

Our quality approach to gutter cleaning provides our customers with the assurance of a professional job every time.  All of our crews are highly trained to ensure a high level of service and enhance the customers experience.

Most property owners get their gutters cleaned only when they notice a problem with their gutters. By that time, your property may have already suffered water damage. Gutters actually provide protection against the harmful effect that the water has on the foundation of your structure. The best, most thorough way to protect your gutters is to clean your gutters on a consistent schedule. We recommend that Bay Area property owners clean their gutters annually at a minimum but ideally twice during the year:  in the spring to clear out the branches, dirt and other winter debris so that they are ready for the summer months and again in the Fall to clean out all the oak tassels, seed pods, ragweed, “helicopters” and other wind-blown debris that land all over our properties .

GREENFORCE
All of our work is fully guaranteed and we carry full workers compensation as well as proper liability insurance. We are insured to do high access and ladder work, which most “fly by night” companies and landscapers are not insured to do ( A landscaper is insured to cut your grass—what happens if that same landscaper falls from a ladder and is not insured to clean gutters? The answer is simple: the insurance company will refuse to pay and you become responsible).

Our insurance not only protects us, it also protects you.

When you call our office you can always get a person on the phone. Additionally, depending on the season and weather, we may be able to get to your house the very next day!

With Greenforce, you don’t even need to be home! We come out, we do a great job, and mail the receipt to you indicating that the job was completed. It’s really that simple!

Our services also includes valley and roof cleaning.

Our teams will normally leave a  “Quality Survey Card” as we want to know how you liked the service. We will also normally do a follow- up survey call for new customers. We are always open to your tips and suggestions for improvement. We want your experience to be enjoyable and easy!

How can I get behind netting to access A/C unit(s) once it is installed?When access to the netted area is required, larger areas can be fitted with a zipper, most applications use a turnbuckle. The turnbuckle is loosened by unscrewing it, reducing the tension in the cable. Once the cable is no longer taut, the net can simply be lifted over the application site, allowing homeowners and/or service techs access. Once access is no longer needed it is imperative the net be put back in place and the cable snugged up via the turnbuckle.

I've heard of spreading sticky gels on ledges and peaks.Although these products have been used for the past couple of decades, these sticky products cause more problems than they address. First & foremost, these gels are very sticky & are hard to remove from buildings (especially when applied to a porous surface like roofing tile or ledges). Due to their nature, the sticky gels attract & collect dust, pollution & other airborne debris, making a huge mess. There are few options to clean this gel up & almost always leaves the treated ledges & roofs stained with what becomes black gunk. The sticky gunk also poses all sorts of problems for contractors and/or maintenance workers who may need roof or ledge access. In warmer climates, gels have been known to drip off ledges. Finally, gels are generally not guaranteed for more than a few months, at best, a short term solution. We are committed to offering a more effective, long term, aesthetically pleasing solution such as spikes or netting, depending on the area.

How can I get behind netting to access lights or equipment once it is installed?

Zippers can be hog-ringed into the netting allowing panels to be removed, doors to be opened, or light bulbs to be changed. We install high-grade marine grade zippers which can withstand years of sunlight, and remain very functional. 2). Another option is to install the perimeter cable with open hooks, which will actually enable you to remove the entire net system and then replace it.

Like the question above regarding plastic owls and other scare devices, these products can work " sometimes" for a short period of time, but hardly ever solve the large-scale problems they are advertised for. They can be somewhat effective in some situations, but largely we believe they are not worth the investment.If you want to give them a try, please make sure you buy from a reputable company that offers a money-back guarantee if you are not completely satisfied.

Sparrows - frequently asked questions

Sparrows are nesting and roosting on beams, pipes and other hard to reach areas in our warehouse; how can we keep them out? Keep your doors closed. If that is not possible, then you really have only two viable options: 1) install netting under the entire ceiling, making sure it firmly seals up against the four walls. This will prevent sparrows from flying up to their perches. The netting must be 3/4" mesh, otherwise the sparrows will fly through the net. 2) If your warehouse is very large and you cannot afford a program as outlined above, you can undertake a program of trapping, harassment and regular nest removal program. However, and most will simply try and try again, and you will end up contributing many man hours to this task, which may cost you more than a solid netting job in the first place.

You probably have a family of sparrows living somewhere in your building, probably above a false ceiling. Yes, you should be concerned; the cracks where they are entering must be repaired. You could contact your contractor or we can do the repairs for you.

Every spring swallows build mud nests on our house under the eaves. They leave a mess on the walls and on the ground. What can we do?

First of all, those cute little swallows are protected; it is illegal to remove their nest once they are able to enter it and stay. As you have noticed, they like to nest in 90 degree angles, usually where a wall meets an overhang or ceiling. You must use the smallest mesh (3/4") and make sure that you seal off every entry point. Please be sure you do it right after they leave, and not as they are attempting to reclaim their home next spring. If the net is in place when they first arrive they will get the message that they should move on. But, if they are allowed to start rebuilding before you hose down their nest and install netting, they will be more inclined to fight to stay.

Starlings absolutely invade the front of our office building, leaving behind lots of nasty droppings. There are lots of ledges and window sills for them to land on. What can be done to deter them?

A more complete solution is netting to exclude flocks of starlings from landing on hundreds of buildings like yours. The netting is installed vertically down the face of the building (we call it "face" netting). It is secured by a strong perimeter cable, and will usually provide at least a ten-year solution. People often ask whether this means you would have netting run in front of your windows, and the answer is yes. But, the net is very thin, and when it's installed correctly (tight as a drum) it is almost impossible to detect. And, if you need access behind the net, zippers can be installed.
