Recently, Clearly Professional Window Cleaning was selected to provide window cleaning services for Holy Spirit Catholic Church in Tempe, Arizona.
I have the privilege of cleaning key windows in the Narthex and Chapel every two weeks.
Technically, since it is not residential, this is a commercial window washing job. However, it’s difficult for me to equate this building with dentist office windows or a sandwich joint!
The Sanctuary at Holy Spirit is absolutely beautiful. I have not been there for Mass in the morning, but have been told that the sunlight shines in through the Eastern windows, through the Chapel windows and right onto the Altar area. It might sound silly, but I honestly feel honored that I am responsible for ensuring that the worship service is not hindered by a smudge on the window.
The Narthex and other entryway windows are located outside and are subject to whatever mother nature may throw their way.
I have found that this is one of those jobs where the windows are deceptively large. When I first bid on the job I could tell that the windows were both tall and wide. But upon cleaning them I learned just how tall and wide they really are!
I have to use my extension ladder, my Werner MT17 ladder, my MT22 ladder, and a step stool to reach all of the glass! Very few jobs call for this many different types and sizes of ladders.
However, I am looking forward to using my newly acquired water-fed pole system for many of the exterior windows and my speed clean kit for the interior windows. This system will provide a superior cleaning of the glass while keeping me safely on the ground.
In addition to the Sanctuary windows, Clearly Professional Window Cleaning provides window washing services for the church Rectory on a monthly basis.
