A service for cleaning hard-to-reach exterior windows?

Maiden Lane building windows next buildingS. emails:

I'm trying to have my windows cleaned (outside), but they are difficult to reach, neither my friends or myself are comfortable climbing up there.
I searched on AOA, but it doesn't seem this question was ever asked (?). If you think this would be of interest to somebody else, and if it's not too specific for AOA, I'd love to hear from people.

S. is right -- we haven't had this question before. And we're a little surprised it hasn't come up before. Given all the old homes in this area (with old windows), there are probably quite a few people for whom cleaning the outside of their upper-floor windows isn't an easy thing.

So, got a suggestion for S. -- either a company or an idea of how to solve the problem? Please share! And as with any question likes this, a sentence or two about why you're recommending a company can be very helpful.

Would a window washer robot work? Like this;

My employer uses Action Window Washing in Rensselaer. They are always on time, work fast, and I think are pretty reasonable. I work in a five story 200 year old building in Troy, our windows on the 4th and 5th floors are very old and tricky. and they manage them all with no problems.

Thanks friends. I ended up sending pictures to a few of them:

- Doug's Precision Power Washing
- Shiny Window Wash
- Ken’s Window Cleaning
- Action Window Cleaning

Expect *minimum* prices ranging from $150 to $450. I can't vouch for any of them. After pointing my vertical sliding windows to my gf today, she pressed a button I had never seen and said: "uh, you know they can be rotated inwards, right?". I guess I owe somebody a good dinner-date.
