Water-fed pole window cleaning
Water-fed pole window cleaning
Water-fed pole window washing, also known as water-fed pole cleaning or pure water window cleaning, is a method commonly used by professional window cleaners to clean exterior windows & solar panels, particularly those in high or hard-to-reach areas. Instead of traditional squeegees or scrubbers, this technique utilizes extendable poles with brush attachments and purified water for effective window cleaning.
How it works:
- Water purification: The first step in water-fed pole window washing is purifying the water. Tap water contains minerals and impurities that can leave streaks and spots on windows when it dries. To overcome this, the water is typically purified using a filtration system that removes impurities and minerals, leaving behind pure water.
- Extendable poles: Water-fed pole systems consist of telescopic poles that can extend to varying lengths, depending on the height of the windows being cleaned. These poles are usually made of lightweight materials such as carbon fiber or aluminum, making them easy to handle and maneuver.
- Brush attachment: At the end of the pole, there is a brush attachment designed specifically for window cleaning. The brush has soft bristles that are gentle on the glass surface but effective at loosening dirt and grime. Some brushes also have jets that spray water onto the window.
- Pure water application: The purified water is pumped through the pole and out through jets on the brush attachment. The water flows over the windows and the brush is used to agitate and scrub away dirt, dust, and debris.
- Rinse and dry: As the purified water flows over the windows, it acts as a cleaning agent, effectively lifting away dirt and grime. Since the water is pure, it does not leave any residue behind. The windows are then left to air dry naturally without the need for squeegees or towels. As the water evaporates, it leaves the windows clean and streak-free.
Benefits of water-fed pole solar & window cleaning:
- Reach and safety: Water-fed poles allow window cleaners to access and clean windows at heights without the need for ladders, scaffolding, or other equipment. This method enhances safety and reduces the risks associated with working at heights.
- Efficiency: Water-fed pole cleaning is generally faster than traditional methods, as it eliminates the need for constant repositioning and ladder climbing. The extended reach of the poles also reduces the time required to clean windows on multi-story buildings.
- Environmentally friendly: Water-fed pole cleaning often uses minimal or no cleaning chemicals. The purified water itself acts as the cleaning agent, reducing the environmental impact of the cleaning process.
- Streak-free results: The use of purified water helps achieve streak-free results. As there are no minerals or impurities in the water, windows can dry naturally without leaving behind any residue or streaks.
Water-fed pole window cleaning is particularly effective for routine maintenance cleaning of exterior windows & solar panels. However, for interior windows or windows with heavy staining or buildup, traditional methods may still be necessary. It’s worth noting that professional window cleaners are typically trained in using water-fed pole systems to ensure optimal results.
