Window Cleaning 101
Are you a little confused about what window cleaning equipment you need to get started? Here is a crash course on the most common tools and there uses!
There are 5 common window cleaning tools:
5. Extension Pole
Your washer is the tool you use to apply your chemical to the window. They come in all different makes and sizes, and the sleeves and t-bars can be bought separately if you so wish. Some sleeves have abrasive pads, some are microfibre, and some are general cotton.
Your squeegee is the tool you use to dry your window, and get that streak free, crystal finish. The rubber is the most important part of your squeegee. You want to keep your squeegee blade sharp and free of any nicks or cracks. Handles can be bought separate from the channel and rubber and you want to make sure you have a swivel handle if you expect to be working at heights.
It might sound a little obvious, but you need a bucket for your window cleaning solution! You also need to make sure you've bought a bucket that is long enough for your washer. If you have a 45cm washer, but only a 35cm long bucket, it's not going to fit!
Your scraper is used to remove any impurities that are caked on the window such as mud or bird droppings. The scraper has a very sharp razor blade that is run along the window and mows through that which needs to be removed.
As the razor is flat against the window, you will not scratch the glass. Using a scraper is essential to achieving professional looking results, as any raised impurities on the glass will nick your squeegee rubber and create streaks.
5. Extension Pole
If you're going to be working at heights, an extension pole is a must have tool. It's usually recommended you purchase a pole a little longer than you expect you'll need, because in extending them to maximum length you will loose some of your strength and rigidity. All squeegee handles and window washers are designed to be attached to an extension pole.
