In July I had my largest window cleaning job to date. In fact, this low-rise window cleaning job was so large it necessitated me purchasing significant additional window washing tools.
This job consisted of cleaning windows at an office building connected to a commercial warehouse. I learned from the building maintenance supervisor that the windows had not been cleaned in the fifteen years that he had been working there! I had my work cut out for me!
Up until a few years ago this type of window washing job would require a lift to get the window washers up to the second and third story windows. Another possible option would be for window cleaners to hang off the top of the building in a boson’s chair. This building is really not very tall and normally ladders could be used, but the office portion of the building incorporates a wall of glass with nowhere to lean a ladder except on a window or window frame.
Fortunately for me, and the building owner, pure water technology for window cleaning has come a long way in the last 5-10 years. Through this process a professional window cleaner is able to run tap water through a multi-stage filtration system that removes all traces of minerals from the water. This process leaves the water at zero parts per million of total dissolved solids (TDS). This type of water is highly effective at attracting and rinsing away dirt and because there are no traces of hard water left the water can be left on the glass to dry spot free.
The process of cleaning windows involves a water-fed pole with a scrubbing brush on the end and water jets that spray a gentle stream of scrubbing and rinsing water onto the glass. The professional window washer is able to do all of this without ever leaving the ground! This technology means that window cleaning companies can provide outstanding results for clients while limiting liability and increasing safety.
What would normally take a crew of 4-5 window cleaners can be done with only one.
All of that said, this office building window cleaning was not a walk in the park! While it was definitely easier because of this new window cleaning technology, Clearly Professional Window Cleaning in Tempe, Arizona had to spend two and a half days completing the job. From the before and after pictures you can see the obvious difference.
