We use the reach and wash system to leave your windows with the best clean possible. Using this method, we can clean windows up to a height of 60 feet.
We clean the windows from the safety of the ground using a carbon fiber telescopic pole. Pure water is pumped up through the pole into the brush used on the window to agitate the dirt and take it away. The windows are then rinsed down with more pure water to complete the clean and left to dry. Depending on the weather, this can take anything from 5 minutes to an hour. The windows are left with a streak-free finish thanks to the water used.
Using this method, we can work safely and eliminate the need for ladders. In addition, all frames and sills are standard in the price you are given and are cleaned every time.
But you might wonder what we mean by pure water? Well, the area that we live in is a hard water area. This means there is a build-up of solids and contaminants in the water. This is why if you spray the water from your outside tap onto the windows and leave it to dry, there will be watermarks. It’s the solids that cause this. We take this water straight from the tap and pump it through a series of filters to remove all the dirt from it. In Luton, the water is anything from between 300-400 parts per million of solids in the water. After being put through the filters, the water is down to around 9-10 parts per million. This is a significant improvement, but to ensure that the water used on your windows is the highest quality possible, the water is then pumped through a deionization vessel that contains resin that polishes the water, leaving it at 0 parts per million solids/ contaminants in the water. So there you go, a geeky lesson in the ins and outs of window cleaning made simple.
What is the best cleaner for outside windows?
The best homemade window cleaning solution is to mix two gallons of water and about a teaspoon of dishwashing liquid together in your bucket. Some people also opt to use vinegar and water to clean windows. You’ll get a little more working time in warm weather by using cool water.
Fanning, Professional Squeegee Method
The most commonly used window cleaning method by professionals is fanning. Fanning involves using the squeegee to perform a series of short strokes in several different directions. This moves the cleaning solution, keeping it from getting under the squeegee’s blade.
What do professionals clean windows with
Pros use a lambs wool tool that they rub across the glass. This tool is soaked in the water solution, and the sweeping motion the pros use gets the dirt off the glass. The brass squeegee you see the pros use is not a magic tool cleaning the glass. It’s just removing the left-behind water.
