When we think window cleaning it's rare to find a house with all the windows at an easily accessable height. Usually there's at least a few located well out of reach. In Hobart with Mount Wellington, its foothills and undulating surounding suburbs it may mean there's a steep drop off on one side of the house with windows high above.
What's the answer?In many cases the answer is a water fed pole system. Simply put, a water fed pole is a lightweight carbon fibre extension pole with a specially designed brush head attached to the top. A hose feeds water through two or more jets in the brush head. This is no ordinary water from the garden tap though. Water runs through a purifier so that by the time it arrives on the glass it's completely pure of all disolved solids.
Pure waterPure water accomplishes two things:
- Pure water is like a magnet, it attracts dust and dirt from the glass.
- As it's pure, it dries crystal clear.
What's the process?
- The glass is washed and brushed, dislodging dust and grime from the window
- The glass is rinsed off from top to bottom with the pure water, drying crstal clear.
I use a Gardiner Super Light SL-X 35 water fed pole which reaches to four stories, in fact I've been able to clean windows that were impossible to reach with a ladder or even a cherry picker in the past all from the safety of ground level.
