Methods for cleaning windows – the traditional way? Or the modern way? Using the new water fed pole? with advanced pure water cleaning technology

Traditional window cleaning

Methods involve applying soapy water to the glass with a hand-held applicator. A mixture of soap & water is applied to the glass. Microfibre sleeves are specially designed for the easy removal of dirt. The squeegee is then wiped over the glass similar to a car windscreen wiper, and this removes the soapy water, leaving a transparent window, with runs wiped off using a fresh microfibre cloth.

The real disadvantage of the traditional methods is that cleaning products leave small detergent firms behind. Initially, the soap is translucent to the eye until it rains or dust/pollen is blown onto the window. Windows become dirtier much quicker with this method windows are typically cleaned twice a month.

For well over a century sponge & bucket was the accepted practice of the window cleaner, nowadays the modern professional window cleaner uses water fed pole with advanced pure water technology.
